Glossary of "Ecology (6th ed.)" by Krebs (2009)
- an experimental design in plant ecophysiology in which a series of plants from different areas are brought together and planted in one area, side by side, in an attempt to determine which features of the plants are genetically controlled and which are environmentally determined.
Glossary of "Evolution (4th ed.)" by Futuyma & Kirkpatrick (2017)
- A place in which (usually conspecific) organisms, perhaps from different geographic populations, are reared together, enabling the investigator to ascribe variation among them to genetic rather than environmental differences. Originally applied to plants, but now more generally used to describe any experiment of this design.
