Vegetative reproduction enhances polyploid speciation

Polyploidy, defined as multiplication of the whole chromosome complement, is arguably the single most important mechanism in plant speciation and diversification. Herben et al....

Secondary phloem diversity and evolution in Bignonieae

This study explores phloem evolution in the species-rich Bignonieae (Bignoniaceae) tribe.

Floral and vegetative cues for pollination in Lysimachia

Plants pollinated by the same guild of pollinators often converge in their floral phenotype as a result of pollinator-mediated selection. However, Schäffler et al. also...

How do you get more DNA down a pollen tube?

A common event for flowering plants is whole genome duplication (WGD), where a plant gets extra chromosomes. It’s often studied in mature...

Simulating the effects of local adaptation and life history on the ability of plants to track climate shifts

Local adaptation is common but not universal in plants and results from the interplay of gene flow with natural selection. Gene flow...

What creates Gentiana diversity in mountains?

The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is extremely rich in species, but why? One recent explanation is the mountain‐geobiodiversity hypothesis (MGH) by Mosbrugger et...

Modelling Three-Dimensional Leaf Shape Variation

L-Cucumber’s leaf prototype mimics leaf shape of stressed plants.
