Population dynamics at a diploid-polyploid contact zone in Mercurialis annua L.

Abstract:

Hybrid zones offer ‘natural laboratories’ for studying the origin, maintenance and demise of species, serving as examples of evolution in action. Understanding the processes that mediate the simultaneous invasions and extinctions of a hybrid zone is therefore essential to understanding the range limits of species and the maintenance of their genetic identity.

Populations of diploid (2n = 16) and hexaploid (2n = 48) Mercuralis annua L. s.l. (Euphorbiaceae) have migrated from glacial ...
