The role of the soil diaspore bank as an integral part of the life history of ecologically extremely specialized ephemeral, semi-aquatic plant species

Name: The role of the soil diaspore bank as an integral part of the life history of ecologically extremely specialized ephemeral, semi-aquatic plant species
Researchers: Šumberová Kateřina (member of research team)
Project Type: C - other (Research and development projects of ministries, contracts and agreements on targeted research and cooperation, etc.)
Realization from: 2012
Realization to: 2015
Summary: Project is focused on genetic variability at wetland annual plant Cyperus fuscus. Following specific questions are addressed: 1) What are the differences between the genetic variability of Cyperus fuscus represented in soil seed bank and the variability in the populations occurring in vegetation? Does the variability depend on the disturbance regime/management of various types of habitats? What is the overall genetic variability of the species within Europe?; 2) How are the differences in genetic structure of particular populations reflected in fenotype of the plants? Are there any local types of Cyperus fuscus with genetically dependent traits?
