Leaf venation patterns of the genus Hibbertia (Dilleniaceae).
In elucidating the adaptive radiation and structural diversification within the genus Hibbertia (Dickison et al., 1978), Bill, Phil, and Stebbins used the phrase "ecological adaptive character syndrome." This study was an extension of Rury's master's thesis on the evolution of leaf venation patterns in Hibbertia, Dickison's earlier studies of the entire family Dilleniaceae, and Stebbins's (1974) views on adaptive radiation within Hibbertia in relation to ecological factors.
