Botanists collated genetic data from 51 different genetic studies on Acacia species to compare genetic diversity between native and invasive populations.
New study in the journal BMC Biology found that Mediterranean olives have almost as high genetic diversity as olive cultivars
Mikania micrantha benefits from high gene flow when invading new territory in Asia.
A limited set of SNPs identified the species of test trees with a high degree of accuracy, finding asymmetrical mixing among the three species.
Botanists use the orchid genus Epipactis as a model for speciation, but unravelling its family tree has been difficult.
When species cohesion is maintained despite ongoing natural hybridisation.
An analysis of patterns of genetic differentiation finds evidence of reciprocal gene exchanges between populations of Mediterranean and Saharan olives.
