Multiplicity in Unity: Plant Subindividual Variation and Interactions with Animals

Carlos M. Herrera


The main purpose of this book is to present the message that when one looks at subindividual variability, a feature that was either unnoticed or taken as a nuisance turns into an opportunity for framing new questions, identifying novel biological mechanisms linking sessile plants and mobile choosy animals, and deepening the understanding of the ecological and evolutionary factors involved in plant–animal interactions. The chapters focus on what features vary among reiterated organs of the same plant, what the magnitude of such variation is in the different types of organs, and how it is tempor ... More

Keywords: subindividual variability, biological mechanisms, sessile plants, plant–animal interactions, homologous structures, phenotypic variation
