Introgression frequently occurs between closely related plant species when there is incomplete reproductive isolation. However, few studies have been designed to examine the extent and direction of introgression from all three genomes, especially when they have different rates of gene flow. Conifers, in which chloroplast (cp), mitochondrial (mt) and nuclear (nr) genomes show contrasting rates of gene flow, provide a good model in which to carry out such a case study. Here we use data on… CONTINUE READING
