Meghan L. Avolio and Melinda D. Smith Correlations between genetic and species diversity: effects of resource quantity and heterogeneity Journal of Vegetation Science 24
In tallgrass prairie, the genetic diversity of the dominant species Andropogon gerardii is not related to plant community diversity. Here, we investigate how environmental resources, their quantity and heterogeneity, might affect correlations between these two levels of plant diversity. We found that species and genetic diversity are related to different environmental resources potentially explaining the lack of relationship.
