In 1759, Linnaeus convinced his followers that plants could hybridise by crossing flowers in the daisy family and producing intermediate offspring. These hybrids, between Tragopogon pratensis and T. porrifolius, exist naturally today in London, to all appearances the same. We find that most of the London hybrids are in their first generation, though we provide chromosomal evidence that one is a little older. These hybrids do not seem to have given rise to a new species, even though both parents… Expand
Genome evolution in alpine oat-like grasses through homoploid hybridization and polyploidy
TLDR
Results suggest a primary centre of species establishment in the eastern regions of the Alps, with the westward expansion and subsequent ice age interruption resulting in a recently disjunct distribution between populations of the southwestern and southeastern Alps. Expand

A New Polyploid Species of the Genus Tragopogon (Asteraceae, Cichorieae) from Russia
TLDR
The new species is a tetraploid (2n = 24), ruderal plant with long flowering and fruiting times and differs from the vast majority of Tragopogon L. species in its ability to reproduce vegetatively from adventitious shoots. Expand
Hybrid Origins of Plant Species
TLDR
Experimental, theoretical, and empirical studies of homoploid hybrid speciation suggest that it is feasible, although evolutionary conditions are stringent, and hybridization may be important as a stimulus for the genetic or chromosomal reorganization envisioned in founder effect and saltational models of speciation.

SEED FERTILITY IN TRAGOPOGON HYBRIDS (COMPOSITAE)
TLDR
Although FL's were generally sterile or semi-sterile, the proportion of fertile seeds produced in most crosses increased in the F2 generation, and in two cases, however, a significant decrease was observed. Expand
Hybrid speciation in angiosperms: parental divergence drives ploidy.
TLDR
The classical cytological hypothesis that ploidy in hybrid speciation is governed by the extent of chromosomal rearrangements among parental species is evaluated and it is argued that this asymmetric relationship may be reinforced immediately after hybrid formation, during stabilization and establishment.

CYTOPLASMIC INHERITANCE AND RECIPROCAL AMPHIPLOIDY IN TRAGOPOGON
TLDR
In an attempt to resynthesize the two tetraploid species, Tragopogon mirus (amphiploid T. dubius X plorrifolius) and T. miscellus and a number of tetraPloid interspecific hybrids obtained, striking reciprocal differences appeared in the F1 hybrids involving T. pratensis and apparently the same phenomenon occurs on the tetraPLoid level.

Major Ecological Transitions in Wild Sunflowers Facilitated by Hybridization
TLDR
The same combinations of parental chromosomal segments required to generate extreme phenotypes in synthetic hybrids also occurred in ancient hybrids, and this possibility was tested through phenotypic and genomic comparisons of ancient and synthetic hybrids. Expand

TLDR
This work estimated genetic divergence between species pairs that have given rise to homoploid and polyploid hybrid species and found that divergence is significantly greater for the parents of polyploids, even after controlling for potentially confounding factors. Expand
Natural hybrids between Tragopogon mirus and T. miscellus (Asteraceae): a new perspective on karyotypic changes following hybridization at the polyploid level.
TLDR
The hybrids appear to be shifting away from a parentally additive F1 karyotype to chromosomal compositions that are mostly, or entirely, disomic, which may eventually lead to the elimination of chromosomes from a population and produce a stabilized karyotypes distinct from both allotetraploid parents.

A new Spanish species of Tragopogon (Asteraceae: Lactuceae)
Tragopogon cazorlanum (Asteraceae: Lactuceae) is proposed as a new Spanish species with distribution restricted to the Baetic mountains (south-eastern Spain). Its morphological, palynological,Expand
Plant Speciation
TLDR
Polyploid speciation, in which the entire genome is duplicated, is particularly frequent in plants, perhaps because polyploid plants often exhibit ecological differentiation, local dispersal, high fecundity, perennial life history, and self-fertilization or asexual reproduction. Expand
