Correlation of Altitude and Latitude to the Morphological Traits of Cirsium Canescens

What roles do altitude and latitude play on intraspecific variation in plants? To determine the answer I examined the plant morphology of the species Cirsium canescens across its entire range. Using the data collected from these plants, I was able to determine what effect climatic gradients have on its evolutionary change.
