Mixotrophy in land plants: why to stay green?

Jakub Těšitel , Tamara Těšitelová , Julita Minasiewicz , Marc-Andre Selosse

Abstract

Mixotrophic plants combine photosynthesis and heterotrophic nutrition. Recent research suggests mechanisms explaining why mixotrophy is so common in terrestrial ecosystems. First, mixotrophy overcomes nutrient limitation and/or seedling establishment constraints. Second, although genetic drift may push mixotrophs to full heterotrophy, the role of photosynthesis in reproduction stabilizes mixotrophy.
