Contemporary speciation provides a unique opportunity to directly observe the traits and environmental responses of a new species. Cardamine insueta is an allotriploid species that appeared within the past 150 years in a Swiss village, Urnerboden. In contrast to its two progenitor species, Cardamine amara and Cardamine rivularis that live in wet and open habitats, respectively, C. insueta is found in-between their habitats with temporal water level fluctuation. This triploid species propagates… Expand

Experimental and Field Data Support Range Expansion in an Allopolyploid Arabidopsis Owing to Parental Legacy of Heavy Metal Hyperaccumulation
These data suggest that A. kamchatica can inhabit a range of both natural and artificial soil environments with high levels of ions that either of the parents specializes and that it can accumulate varying amount of heavy metals. Expand


Multiple hybridization events in Cardamine (Brassicaceae) during the last 150 years: revisiting a textbook example of neoallopolyploidy.
The efficiency of progenitor-specific microsatellite markers in detecting the hybrid origins and genome composition of these two allopolyploids was explored, to estimate the frequency of polyploid formation events, and to outline their evolutionary potential for long-term persistence and speciation.

The widespread crucifer species Cardamine flexuosa is an allotetraploid with a conserved subgenomic structure.
The genome of C. flexuosa demonstrates that allopolyploids can maintain remarkably stable subgenomes over 10(4) -10(5)  yr throughout a wide distribution range and undergoes genome-specific elimination towards a diploid-like number of loci. Expand
Hybridization and evolution inCardamine (Brassicaceae) at Urnerboden, Central Switzerland: Biosystematic and molecular evidence
The evolution at Urnerboden is discussed in the context of the traditional concept of multiple plant origins: site management seems to be very important to a further development of hybridogenous populations and their parent species. Expand
Fine-scale ecological and transcriptomic data reveal niche differentiation of an allopolyploid from diploid parents in Cardamine
These findings provide empirical evidence for niche differentiation between an allopolyploid and its diploid parents at a fine scale, where both ecological and transcriptomic data indicated water availability to be the key environmental factor for niche differentiate. Expand
Origins, establishment and evolution of new polyploid species: Senecio cambrensis and S. eboracensis in the British Isles
Two new polyploid species of Senecio have originated in the British Isles in recent times following hybridization between native S. vulgaris and S. eboracensis, and what is known about when and how each species originated, and their reproductive isolation from parents due to high selfing rates is reviewed. Expand
Plant adaptive radiation mediated by polyploid plasticity in transcriptomes
It is proposed that recurrent allopolyploid speciation along soil moisture and waterlogging gradients confers niche differentiation and reproductive isolation simultaneously and serves as a model for studying the molecular basis of ecological speciation and adaptive radiation. Expand
The More the Merrier: Recent Hybridization and Polyploidy in Cardamine[W]
The use of cytogenomic and molecular approaches are described to explore the origin and evolution of Cardamine schulzii, a textbook example of a recent allopolyploid, in its ∼110-year history of human-induced hybridization and allopoly Ploidy in the Swiss Alps and demonstrate how important it is to reexamine the routinely repeated textbook examples using modern techniques.

Genomic expression dominance in the natural allopolyploid Coffea arabica is massively affected by growth temperature.
Evidence of transcription profile divergence between the allopolyploid and its parental species, greatly affected by environmental conditions, is revealed and clues to the plasticity phenomenon in allopoly Ploidy are provided. Expand
Recent and recurrent polyploidy in Tragopogon (Asteraceae): cytogenetic, genomic and genetic comparisons
It is shown that multiple origins of a polyploid species not only affect patterns of genetic variation in natural populations, but also contribute to differential patterns of gene expression and may therefore play a major role in the long-term evolution of polyploids. Expand
Spartina anglica C. E. Hubbard: a natural model system for analysing early evolutionary changes that affect allopolyploid genomes.
Modifications of the methylation patterns in the genomes of S. x townsendii and S. anglica indicate that in this system, epigenetic changes have followed both hybridization and polyploidization. Expand
