Intraspecific genetic variation can affect a range of properties associated with a focal plant, but the effects of genetic variation in a focal plant's neighbors has received less attention. We found that genotypic variation in neighboring plants indirectly affected the traits of focal plants, with implications for plant evolution and productivity. The effects of neighbors were strongest when plants were allowed to interact belowground, and when the response variable was belowground biomass.
