- A comparison of phenotypic plasticity in the native dandelion Taraxacum ceratophorum and its invasive congener T. officinaleMarcus T Brock

New Phytol 166:173-83. 2005..officinale within open and vegetated habitats. In contrast to the idea that plasticity promotes invasiveness, results suggest that the lack of plasticity in dispersal-related traits enhances the colonization potential of T. officinale...

- Plasticity and environment-specific covariances: an investigation of floral-vegetative and within flower correlationsMarcus T Brock

- Constraints on the evolution of adaptive plasticity: costs of plasticity to density are expressed in segregating progeniesJennifer M Dechaine
Department of Plant Biology, University of Minnesota, St Paul 55108, USA
New Phytol 176:874-82. 2007..Detection of costs in previous studies may have been limited because historical selection has purged genotypes with costly plasticity, and experimental conditions often lack environmental stresses...
- Prezygotic barriers to gene flow between Taraxacum ceratophorum and the invasive Taraxacum officinale (Asteraceae)Marcus T Brock
Division of Biological Sciences, University of Missouri, Columbia, MO 65211, USA
Oecologia 161:241-51. 2009..This result indicates that conspecific pollen out-competes heterospecific pollen but further suggests that biotic and abiotic factors reducing pollen accrual rates may partially remove barriers to natural hybridization...
