In r/K selection theory, selective pressures are hypothesised to drive evolution in one of two generalized directions: r- or K-selection. These terms, r and K, are drawn from standard ecological algebra as illustrated in the simplified Verhulst model of population dynamics: = (−) where N is the population, r is the maximum growth rate, K is the carrying capacity of the local environment, . Evolutionary Significance of Plant Reproduction Strategies The attractive, colorful, and unique features of the most abundant and diverse group of land plants—the flowering plants—are believed to have evolved primarily to maximize the efficiency and speed of outcross reproduction.
Science Reading Warm-Up: Plant Reproduction Science Reading Warm-Up: Plant Reproduction Improve students' reading skills and increase their knowledge of science as they read about plant reproduction in a short passage and answer reading comprehension questions. Key Takeaways Key Points. In natural asexual reproduction, roots can give rise to new plants, or plants can propagate using budding or cutting. In grafting, part of a plant is attached to the root system of another plant; the two unite to form a new plant containing the roots of one and the stem and leaf structure of the other.

This collection of reviews by leading investigators examines plant reproduction and sexuality within a framework of evolutionary ecology, providing an up-to-date account of the field. The contributors discuss conceptual issues, showing the importance of sex allocation, sexual selection and inclusive fitness, and the dimensions of paternity and maternity in plants.4/5(1). Reproductive and Survivorship Strategies. It may come as no surprise to you that different organisms have different strategies for reproduction. And we are not talking about a nifty array of cheesy pickup lines. At one extreme, some organisms produce a huge number of offspring once in their lifetime and then die or never reproduce again. Get this from a library! Strategies of plant reproduction: invited papers presented at a symposium held May , , at the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center (BARC), Beltsville, Maryland. [Werner J Meudt; BARC Symposium VI Committee.; Beltsville Agricultural Research Center.;]. Reproduction in angiosperms. The information below is adapted from OpenStax Biology We’ll look more closely at reproduction in angiosperms, which are unique among plants for three defining features: they have flowers, they have fruit-covered seeds, and they reproduce via a process called double fertilization.. Flowers are adaptations to attract pollinators.
