1.Competition among neighboring plants plays essential roles in growth, reproduction, population dynamics, and community assembly, but how competition drives local adaptation and the traits underlying the adaptation remain unclear. Here, we focused on populations of the aggressive weed Digitaria ciliaris from urban and rural habitats as low‐ and high‐competition environments for light resources and examined how competitive interaction drove contemporary adaptive divergence of competitive traits.
