European white oak hybrids can be well-identified with a small set of genetic markers

A limited set of SNPs identified the species of test trees with a high degree of accuracy, finding asymmetrical mixing among the three species.

Where do all the Epipactis orchids come from?

Botanists use the orchid genus Epipactis as a model for speciation, but unravelling its family tree has been difficult.
