Researchers find that the rise of the Andes created conditions in the landscape that drove speciation in aquatic plants.
A study of the genetic diversity of Miscanthus sacchariflorus has revealed that the centre of its diversity now lies under the Yellow Sea.
The wide distribution of the most common chloroplast haplotype agrees with an early dispersal of manioc across Brazilian Amazonia.
Disturbances, dispersal and biotic interactions are three major drivers of the spatial distribution of genotypes within populations, the last of which has been less studied than the other two.
Miscanthus ornamental cultivars originate almost exclusively from southern Japan, & many marketed as M. sinensis have hybrid ancestry from M. sacchariflorus
