Effects of seed bank disturbance on the fine-scale genetic structure of populations of the rare shrub Grevillea macleayana

  title={Effects of seed bank disturbance on the fine-scale genetic structure of populations of the rare shrub Grevillea macleayana},
  author={Phillip R. England and Robert J. Whelan and David J. Ayre},
Dispersal in most plants is mediated by the movement of seeds and pollen, which move genes across the landscape differently. Grevillea macleayana is a rare, fire-dependent Australian shrub with large seeds lacking adaptations for dispersal; yet it produces inflorescences adapted to pollination by highly mobile vertebrates (eg birds). Interpreting fine-scale genetic structure in the light of these two processes is confounded by the recent imposition of anthropogenic disturbances with potentially… CONTINUE READING
