Populus tremula shows no evidence of sexual dimorphism

**Background:** Although the majority of plant species are co-sexual, being either monoecious or hermaphroditic, a significant number are dioecious, having separate male and female individuals. Evolutionary theory suggests that males and females may develop sexually dimorphic phenotypic and...

Populus tremula shows no evidence of sexual dimorphism https://tess.elixir-europe.org/materials/populus-tremula-shows-no-evidence-of-sexual-dimorphism **Background:** Although the majority of plant species are co-sexual, being either monoecious or hermaphroditic, a significant number are dioecious, having separate male and female individuals. Evolutionary theory suggests that males and females may develop sexually dimorphic phenotypic and biochemical traits concordant with each sex having different optimal strategies of resource investment to maximise reproductive success and fitness. The establishment of such sexual dimorphism would result in changes in gene expression patterns in non-floral organs.
