Innate growth potential and innate patterns of allocation to different plant parts are both subject to physiological limitations. Yet the ways in which these attributes not only vary between species but also exhibit plasticity in response to environmental change are important determinants of ecological behaviour and contribute strands to Plant Strategy Theory. In this paper, we review the evidence for innate variation in growth potential and partitioning and consider the implications of this variation for the development of high-level ecological syntheses.
