Trait responses of invasive aquatic macrophyte congeners: colonizing diploid outperforms polyploidy

Polyploidy (multiple copies of whole genomes) is over-represented in invasive plants and thought to promote their success in novel environments.  Understanding functional traits supporting...

Range expansion of invasive shrubs: implication for crown fire risk in forestlands of the southern United States

Non-native plant invasions and changing management activities have altered the structure and composition of forests. Invasive shrubs and fire suppression have led to increased...

Genetic diversity and floral width variation in introduced and native populations of a long-lived woody perennial

Populations of introduced species in their new environments are expected to differ from native populations, due to processes such as genetic drift, founder effects,...

Hitting the right target: taxonomic challenges for, and of, plant invasions

Taxonomic resources are essential for the effective management of invasive plants because biosecurity strategies, legislation dealing with invasive species, quarantine, weed surveillance and monitoring...

Phenology and resource allocation in Ruellia

In plants that produce both closed, obligatory self-pollinated (cleistogamous) and open, potentially out-crossed (chasmogamous) flowers, suboptimal conditions typically favour production of cleistogamous flowers. Munguía-Rosas...

Invasion strategies in clonal aquatic plants

Invasion strategies in clonal aquatic plantsThe successful spread of invasive plants is often linked to a diverse gene pool that facilitates local adaptation to...

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...
