Reciprocal Transplant Reveals Sources of Variation in Growth Rates of the Lizard Sceloporus Undulatus
Geographic variation in life history phenotypes between population of a single species is often assumed to reflect genetic divergence caused by natural selection. The relative contribution of genetic and environmental sources of phenotypic variation is plasticity induced by proximate environmental variation and genetic divergence is fundamental to understanding the ecological and evolutionary significance of geographic variation.
