Phenotypic plasticity

Phenotypic plasticity

Organisms can cope with environmental challenges by changing their development. This is called phenotypic plasticity and played a role in the survival of sessile organisms including land plants. To understand the effect of different environmental cues, we study the leaf shape plasticity of the carnivorous pitcher plant Cephalotus follicularis under controlled environments.
