No.

PCI and PCI-E (1, 4, and 16) are all different slots. Even when it comes down to PCI-E 1x will not work with PCI-E 16x

Nope, they are different sized slots and are also keyed differently.

i didnt think so
it would have been cool if you could put a pci network adapter into a pcie16 slot
and it would function
not everyone needs 3 pcie slots
