<< It has long been assumed that A. pusilla might avoid being eaten by insect or avian herbivores by mimicking the unpalatable P. colorata [Pseudowintera colorata]; until now, however, this assumption has lacked empirical evidence >>
New research uses novel approach to study plant mimicry. June 13, 2016.
<< 90% of leaf shape variation in the two species varied similarly across an altitudinal gradient >>
