Pollen-mediated gene flow in wild olive

Wild olive (Olea europaea subsp. europaea var. sylvestris, aka oleaster) populations are subject to increasing fragmentation and size reduction. Beghè et al. employ microsatellite markers...

Pollen dispersal and breeding structure in Petunia

Results show that most pollen dispersal in subsp. axillaris occurs within populations and there is a high proportion of inbreeding.

Complete outcrossing in a monoecious clonal seagrass

A study of clonal structure, mating system and pollen dispersal in two seagrass meadows of Posidonia australis with contrasting environmental conditions.

Individual mating patterns in mixed oak stands

Trees can mate assortatively, which may be a result of variable compatibility among trees due to genetic and/or environmental factors.

Contemporary gene flow in Arabis alpina

Gene flow is important in counteracting the divergence of populations but also in spreading genes among populations. Buehler et al. describe the effective mating system...

Gene dispersal in wild carrot populations

How far can a gene disperse? Historical and contemporary gene dispersal can be estimated from spatial genetic structure and paternity analysis, and Rong et...
