Under different density dependent mortality situations and degree of intraspecific
competition an organism is under positive selection to allocate a greater
protection of its resources to reproductive or vegetative parts. Populations with density
dependent regulation i.e., those which are better able to tolerate competition will be
selectivity favored to allocate a greater proportion of resources to vegetative activities.
The theoretical Notion Related with this problem is R and K selection. Keeping all this
in view the studies were planned to investigate energy allocation situated and ecological
strategies within species cosmos caudatus, H.B.K. the species exhibit a determinate
growth as the apical meristems are converted into flower recepticles.
