Patterns of mtDNA variation reveal complex evolutionary history of a relict and endangered peat bog pine

Assessments of eco-evolutionary mechanisms that shape the genetic structure of populations are important to understand the influence of environmental changes on plant ecosystems.In recent...

Genetic linkage maps for apomictic Hieracium species

Shirasawa et al. develop a collection of expressed SSR markers in order to construct linkage maps for Hieracium species.

Apomixis in Paspalum (Review)

Ortiz et al.critically review more than half a century of research in Paspalum, a genus that provides an excellent model for studying apomixis in grasses.
