Can a better understanding of invasive tree migration help to improve management practices of riparian ecosystems?
Work continues trying to boost Camelina’s value as an oilseed crop.
Salix herbacea, as other arctic-alpine species, likely found a refuge from the Ice Age in the Apennines. As the climate changed around them, the trees survived in a fragmenting population. This fragmentation has genetic consequences.
The underlying genetic causes of the switch to apomixes are not yet fully understood, but in Hypericum there is good evidence for the existence of ‘apomictic factors’.
