An organism’s phenotype is a set of observable characteristics. Phenotypic plasticity describes an organisms ability to alter its phenotype in response to changes in the environment. These environmental effects can influence organisms directly or may be passed on to individuals by their parents. In this poster, I explore how can we visualize these different types of environmental effects, and how we may conduct experiments to find these effects in organisms such as Arabidopsis thaliana in response to environmental stress.
