The genus Alyssum is one of the largest, yet least known genera of the Brassicaceae family. The present study focusses on the Central European populations of A. montanum, a species that is highly variable with respect to its morphology, ploidy levels and ecological requirements. This variation is naturally reflected in a number of recognised infraspecific taxa, and diverse opinions exist with regards to their value and circumscriptions. Based on amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP), as… CONTINUE READING
