    Genome size variation and evolution in allotetraploid Arabidopsis kamchatica and its parental species, A. lyrata and A. halleri

    Genome doubling and changes in genome size are fundamental evolutionary processes, with polyploidy being one of the most important forces influencing plant diversification. However, little is currently known about the extent of genome size variation within taxa and the evolutionary forces acting on this variation. Arabidopsis kamchatica has been reported to contain both diploid and […] More
