Genetic variation and sexual system evolution in the annual mercuries

Abstract:

The Mercurialis annua L. (Euphorbiaceae) species complex comprises a group of closely related lineages that present a wide range of sexual-systems, making it a valuable model for the study of plant sexual-system evolution. Within this polyploid complex, diploid populations are dioecious, and polyploid populations either monoecious or androdioecious (males coexist with functional hermaphrodites). The primary aim of this thesis was to use patterns of genetic diversity to elucidate the evolution...
