Abstract

Different environmental conditions can cause specific modifications during the development of plants. In this study, we investigated the effect of contrasting habitats (a Zn-Pb dump and a forest site) on morphological and reproductive traits of 154 plants of the perennial herb Arabidopsis halleri. Base on the results of our preliminary investigation we distinguished morphological and functional traits, which differentiate populations of A. halleri from forest and dump habitats. Discriminant analysis distinguished the seed number and the length of the longest rosette leaf as the most distinctly variable traits.
