What’s behind the patterns of plant distribution, and are there any common features of rare plants? A team of botanists has been reviewing articles to find out.
Jin et al. use molecular analyses and morphological examination to understand the evolutionary divergence and establishment patterns of a Korean endemic shrub.
Sorbus is a highly diverse tree genus but is this the result of hybridisation and introgression between native and foreign species?
Can large scale biogeographic studies provide insights into Prosopis genetic diversity, hybridisation and clarify taxonomic uncertainties?
How do differences in flowering time influence gene flow in populations of a biennial plant species?
There is great potential for further utilizing the global genetic diversity to advance the common good.
Today’s remaining isolated populations are highly genetically diverse and extensively hybridized.
Genetic diversity defines the evolutionary potential of a species, yet mounting evidence suggests that epigenetic diversity could also contribute to adaptation.
Botanists have been examining the genomes of Scottish varieties of barley to see if they can pass its ability to manage manganese to popular cultivars.
Diversity of parental environments could have comparable effects to genetic diversity in Arabidopsis.
Banana genes reveal how they may have passed through other hybrid stages.
