Mauricio Fernández Otárola, Marlies Sazima and Vera N. Solferini Tree size and its relationship with flowering phenology and reproductive output in Wild Nutmeg trees Ecology and Evolution 3
Variability in flowering phenology among individuals can be influenced by plant size. We quantified the flowering intensity, length, and reproductive synchronization of two sympatric dioecious tree species and analyzed their relationships to tree sex and size. We show that the effect of tree size on flowering phenology is dependent on the general phenological strategy and is only present in the annual flowering species. The effect of tree size was stronger in the flowering of males than females.
