Data concerning phenotypical plasticity (size and shape of leaf) in Ranunculus sect. auricomus
AbstractThis paper is dealing only with the first item of general significance in order to demonstrate, that with these plants, adapted mainly to more humid forest and meadow habitats, certain morphological modifications take place during the individual life which - based probably on autoregulatory dependent morphogenesis - may be correlated with certain climatic differences (temperature, soil humidity) in the subsequent years, with the age of plants and with heteroblastic development. Our observations may be put in connection with the temperature dependent leaf morphogenesis and phenotypical plasticity of the amphibious species of of Ranunculus.
