An Andean radiation: polyploidy in the tree genus Polylepis (Rosaceae, Sanguisorbeae).
The Andean tree genus Polylepis (Rosaceae) is notorious for the high morphological plasticity of its species and the difficulty in their circumscription. The evolutionary mechanisms that have drivenExpand

Historic and recent fragmentation coupled with altitude affect the genetic population structure of one of the world's highest tropical tree line species
Aim To assess the effects of altitude and historic and recent forest fragmentation on the genetic diversity and structure of the wind-pollinated tropical tree line species Polylepis incana. LocationExpand

Evolutionary dynamics of tree invasions: complementing the unified framework for biological invasions
Evolution greatly impacts the outcomes of biological invasions. In our review, we review such evolutionary processes, with an emphasis on tree invasions, and place them in the context of a unifiedExpand

Recent Anthropogenic Plant Extinctions Differ in Biodiversity Hotspots and Coldspots
During the Anthropocene, humans are changing the Earth system in ways that will be detectable for millennia to come [1]. Biologically, these changes include habitat destruction, bioticExpand

Highly Reduced Genetic Diversity of Rosa rubiginosa L. Populations in the Invasive Range
Rosa rubiginosa (Rosaceae) populations introduced to Argentina successfully invade various habitats, forming extensive impenetrable thickets. To investigate the consequences of founder events and toExpand

Tracking the Origin of Invasive Rosa rubiginosa Populations in Argentina
The exact geographic origin of invasive species populations is rarely known; however, such knowledge is vital to understanding species’ invasion success, spread, and evolution as well as forExpand

High genetic diversity declines towards the geographic range periphery of Adonis vernalis, a Eurasian dry grassland plant.
Genetic diversity is important for species' fitness and evolutionary processes but our knowledge on how it varies across a species' distribution range is limited. The abundant centre hypothesis (ACH)Expand

Unresolved native range taxonomy complicates inferences in invasion ecology: Acacia dealbata Link as an example
Elaborate and expensive endeavours are underway worldwide to understand and manage biological invasions. However, the success of such efforts can be jeopardised due to taxonomic uncertainty. WeExpand
