Summary
Plant Life Histories re-examines patterns of relationships between plant life history traits in phylogenetic perspective. The re-examination recognizes that because evolution is a branching process, traits are not randomly distributed across taxa and that therefore analysis of trait correlations cannot treat species as independent data points. Students and researchers of evolution, ecology and botany will find much of value here
