in: 'Frontiers in Ecology and Evolution': "How population dynamics drive speciation in flowering plants"

by Dr. Alex Twyford (University of Edinburgh)

Flowering plants are an incredibly diverse group that are central to most terrestrial ecosystems. Here, I use genomic approaches to explore how the population processes of dispersal, inbreeding and local adaptation underlie the origins of ecotypic variation and eventually new species. I will include case studies from tropical Begonia, the widespread monkeyflower species Mimulus guttatus, and the diverse hemiparasite genus Euphrasia.
