    Polyploid speciation in Asplenium

    Polyploidy is a major evolutionary force generating new plant species. Hunt et al. explore the dynamics of allopolyploid speciation in the western Mediterranean rock fern Asplenium majoricum at a site where it occurs sympatrically with its diploid parents and their diploid hybrid. Analysis of genetic diversity in allotetraploid and progenitor populations shows recurrent formation of […] More
