Abstract

Morphological trait variations in four populations of Arabidopsis thaliana that grow along altitudinal gradi-ents (~700 to ~3500 m amsl) are described. A total of 38 traits were analysed from each of the four popula-tions. Most of the quantitative traits were significantly correlated with each other among the four popula-tions, but biomass-related traits were negatively cor-related with altitude. There was significant correlation between geographical distance and mean pairwise dis-tance of phenotypic traits among the populations. Overall our data suggest there is significant variation in phenotypic traits of the four populations along altitudinal gradients.
