Plant Ed Folks,
	Is anyone aware of physiological / developmental differences between
and female plants in dioecious species, other than the obvious
associated with flower structure and gametogenesis.  Specifically I am 
wondering whether male and female plants are differentially sensitive to 
hormonal or environmental stimuli.
