Nursery pollination by a moth in Silene latifolia: the role of odours in eliciting antennal and behavioural responses.
Measurable differences have been reported relating to gender in Silene latifolia (Costich et al., 1991: Meagher and Costich, 1994) and base composition has also been used to differentiate relatedness based on differences in heterochromatin among individuals (Rayburn et al., 1992: Godelle et al., 1993).

The quantitative genetics of sexual dimporphism in Silene latifolia
This study examines whether there is sexual dimorphism in the microbial communities of Silene latifolia floral nectar.
Silene latifolia Poiret [= Silene alba (Miller) Krause] is a dioecious, perennial plant found in disturbed areas along roadsides and fields.
Eight populations of Silene latifolia near Mountain Lake Biological Station, Giles County, VA were sampled for NIMs during the months of Jun., Jul., and Aug., the main flowering period for this plant across all sampling years of 1999, 2000, and 2001.
Silene latifolia (= Silene alba, see Gleason and Cronquist 1991 for nomenclature of this species), a dioecious short-lived perennial, was used as a study organism for this project because it displays sexual dimorphism in several floral traits (Baker 1951; Nigtevecht 1966; Lloyd and Webb 1977; Gross and Soule 1981; Lovett Doust et al.
To understand the nature of sex-specific selection factors that may have generated the observed sexual dimorphism in Silene latifolia, we need to consider long-term phenomena.
