Apomixis, hybridization, and taxonomic complexity in eastern north AmericanAmelanchier (Rosaceae)


Apomixis and hybridization together contribute to taxonomic complexity inAmelanchier. Hybridization combines genetically divergent genomes and spawns new forms that apomixis perpetuates. Apomixis is aposporous, facultative, and pseudogamous in the genus, and apomicts are generally polyploid, pollen fertile, and pollinated by generalists. That gene flow… (More)
