A plant species shows several morphological variations in response to altitudinal gradient. When grown under similar conditions of growth, the morphological variations disappear and all the variants have common morphology. What are these variants called? justify your answer.

I  AM  TOO  SHORT  INFORMATION  BUT IT WILL  HELP YOU.
 the differences in the characteristics of a genotype in response to environmental influences. The plants basically adapt to the morphology best suited to their current environment, but are able to change future growth if their environment would change.

ecotype - Populations of a species from different habitats or locations that possess a similar set of genetically-based adaptations.

The plants themselves would be considered an ecotype in your example - they're the same species with similar genes - but they change their morphology based on where they're growing because of phenotypic plasticity.

Well we all know that all the organism in this world learn how to adapt the environmental conditions. In the same way the plants learn to adapt to their different types of conditions as said about the different morphological variations in response to the altitudinal gradient. Yes I agree that when the plants species are grown together in same morphological variations disappear and all the variants have the common morphology because when the plants all are grown together then they will be given the common factors of growth and even equally they are given. So as I said before that all organism try to adapt to the give environment they plant even in the same way will try, if the plant will not be able to response to the several morphological variations in response to the altitudinal gradient, then obviously it would lead to the death of the plant. But we know that the plant will but they change their morphology based on where they're growing because of phenotypic plasticity. So I conclude that the plant need to adjust to the environment even the given different factors.

oh sorry dear it is not variant it is variation....!
hope u understood the answer dear....! (:
i meant what is that variant called??? see the question...
ohh 1 min sis
These variant is called as " biotypes "
