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.

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,...

Nuclear and maternal phylogeny in ‘true citrus’

Most of the edible Citrus species are believed to be of interspecific origin as a consequence of reticulate evolution. Garcia-Lor et al. conduct phylogenetic studies...

Epigenetic regulation gives diversity in triploid bananas

The production of triploid banana and plantain (Musa spp.) cultivars with improved characteristics remains a major challenge for plant breeders. Hippolyte et al. examine 561...
