Solanum dulcamara (Bittersweet, climbing nightshade)

November 22, 2018 cheeseman 0

Solanum dulcamara (bittersweet or climbing nightshade) has a circumpolar distribution, generally in mesophytic environments, but it is also capable of living in dry dunes or permanently flooded ponds. This reflects both phenotypic plasticity and genetic adaptations. In the flooded condition, bittersweet also displays an interesting modification of adventitious root development that makes it relevant to even broader studies of flooding, even for crops.
