Differential adaptation and species diversification between two Melastoma species and their F1 hybrid

In speciation, the formation of new lineages can be driven by two basic evolutionary processes—lineage divergence and lineage fusion. Lineage divergence can happen through...

Ecophysiology of early lineage vascular plants

Tropical understory communities are highly diverse, and plants in these environments must optimize functional traits to ensure ecological and evolutionary success. Campany et al....

Plasticity to drought and ecotypic differentiation in populations of a crop wild relative

Plant functional traits often vary across space, particularly when species encounter contrasting environmental conditions throughout their range. Such phenotypic variation is determined...

Botanists Pull Apart the Genes of Bananas to See How They Came Together

Banana genes reveal how they may have passed through other hybrid stages.

Sympatric moss populations can form true hybrid zones

Hybridization between species has not been considered an important factor in the evolution of mosses. The moss life cycle has led many...

A key protein may help trigger germination in Arabidopsis seeds

Seed germination is a critical step in the life cycle of flowering plants. Since seeds contain limited reserves, seed germination has to...
