    California Polytechnic State University, Department of Biological Sciences, San Luis Obispo, CA 93407, USA
    Ann Bot 95:177-90. 2005
    ..Here we examine the available evidence to support this hypothesis, which we term the 'large genome constraint'. We examine the large genome constraint at three scales: evolution, ecology, and the plant phenotype...
