- Frequency and microenvironmental pattern of selection on plastic shade-avoidance traits in a natural population of Impatiens capensisHeidrun Huber
Department of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, Brown University, Providence, Rhode Island 02912, USA
Am Nat 163:548-63. 2004..Theory predicts that these conditions may promote local genetic differentiation in reaction norms in structured populations, as observed in I. capensis...
- Testing mechanisms and context dependence of costs of plastic shade avoidance responses in Impatiens capensis (Balsaminaceae)Heidrun Huber

Am J Bot 98:1602-12. 2011..e., lodging or breaking) because of thinner stems. This trade-off between light acquisition and stability may shape the evolution of plastic elongation responses to foliage shade...
- A modular concept of phenotypic plasticity in plantsHans de Kroon
Department of Ecology, Radboud University Nijmegen, Toernooiveld 1, 6525 ED Nijmegen, The Netherlands
New Phytol 166:73-82. 2005..Following this notion, whole-plant reaction norms are an integrative by-product of modular plasticity, which has far-reaching methodological, ecological and evolutionary implications...
- Shade avoidance in Trifolium repens: costs and benefits of plasticity in petiole length and leaf sizeJelmer Weijschedé
Department of Experimental Plant Ecology, Radboud University Nijmegen, The Netherlands
New Phytol 172:655-66. 2006..We also found costs associated with the ability to express plasticity. Our results suggest that selection can act separately on trait values expressed under high-light conditions and on the degree of plasticity...
