Sexual dimorphism masks life history trade-offs in the dioecious plant
Ficus is a botanical genus that contains over 700 different species, and characterized by a particular reproductive system (BERG, 2003) Functionally, it is dioecious plant
which has male and female fig cultivated for fruit production, and the female trees produces syconia with only female flowers that are containing of the seeds (VALDEYRON; LLOYD, 1979).
Spinach is a dioecious plant
, meaning male and female flowers are borne on different plants.
Cotove, which is a dioecious plant

A pistillate dioecious plant

Using studies available in the literature, particularly experimental studies on sex ratios in dioecious plant
populations, we examine whether existing theory can account for observed sex ratios and whether this theory, originally developed for animals, needs modification for application to plants.
The impact and consequences of sex-specific selection in a dioecious plant
species are explored here.
