In the last few years, the biogeography of many European plant species has been analyzed using molecular markers, and some consistent patterns of Pleistocenic differentiation and range fluctuations have been established. These studies mostly focused on perennial herbs or woody species, rarely considering annual taxa. This study focused on the annual Microthlaspi perfoliatum, which is distributed all over Europe and comprises three cytotypes. Morphologically, these cytotypes are hard to… CONTINUE READING
