Abrupt speciation through interspecific hybridisation is an important mechanism in angiosperm evolution. Flowering plants therefore offer excellent opportunities for studying genetic processes associated with hybrid speciation. Novel molecular approaches are now available to examine these processes at the level of both genome organization and gene expression - transcriptomics. Here, we present an overview of the molecular technologies currently used to study hybrid speciation and how they are… Expand
Changes to gene expression associated with hybrid speciation in plants: further insights from transcriptomic studies in Senecio
TLDR
Current work on gene expression change associated with hybrid speciation in the genus Senecio (ragworts and groundsels) is discussed, focusing on the findings from a reanalysis of gene expression data obtained from recent microarray studies of wild and resynthesized allopolyploidSenecio cambrensis. Expand
Development of anonymous cDNA microarrays to study changes to the Senecio floral transcriptome during hybrid speciation
TLDR
Anonymous microarray analysis revealed dramatic differences in floral gene expression between these four taxa and demonstrates the power of this technique for studies of the genetic impact of hybridization in nonmodel flowering plants. Expand
Progress and Promise in using Arabidopsis to Study Adaptation, Divergence, and Speciation
TLDR
Recent progress in understanding the molecular basis of local adaptation, reproductive isolation and genetic incompatibility is discussed, focusing on work utilizing the Arabidopsis genus, and several areas in which additional research will provide meaningful insights into adaptation and speciation processes in this genus are highlighted.

Evidence for interspecific hybridization in bryophytes during pre-molecular and molecular eras
Interspecific hybridization had been long recognized as a widespread evolutionary process in vascular plants. In the present review, we summarize knowledge concerning studies of interspecificExpand
Polyploidy, hybridization and reticulate evolution: lessons from the Brassicaceae
TLDR
The present review summarizes studies from the past decades on polyploidization and hybridization events, recognizing them as important evolutionary forces in the family Brassicaceae. Expand
Hybridization and polyploidy as drivers of continuing evolution and speciation in Sorbus
TLDR
The genetic identity of putative novel taxa is confirmed and it is shown that hybridization involving sexual diploid species, primarily S. aria and S. torminalis and polyploid facultative apomictic species from subgenus Aria, has been responsible for generating this biodiversity. Expand
Transcriptome Shock after Interspecific Hybridization in Senecio Is Ameliorated by Genome Duplication
TLDR
It is shown that hybridization and polyploidization have immediate yet distinct effects on large-scale patterns of gene expression and that the "transcriptome shock" observed in S. x baxteri is calmed ("ameliorated") after genome doubling in the first generation of synthetic S. cambrensis. Expand
New Trends in Plant Systematics
TLDR
The current practice of dealing with hybrid terminals in published phyloge netic studies is explored, a selection of network-pro ducing methods currently available are described, and the future possibilities of reconstructing reticulate patterns in angiosperm evolution are discussed. Expand
Genomics of homoploid hybrid speciation: diversity and transcriptional activity of long terminal repeat retrotransposons in hybrid sunflowers
TLDR
It is shown that TE amplification in hybrid lineages is more idiosyncratic than previously believed and provides a first step towards identifying the mechanisms responsible for regulating and repressing TE expansions. Expand
Reconstructing the History of Selection during Homoploid Hybrid Speciation
TLDR
This study presents a new method to test for selection and supports earlier claims that fertility selection and phenotypic selection on ecologically relevant traits have operated simultaneously during sunflower hybrid speciation. Expand

Hybrid Origins of Plant Species
TLDR
Experimental, theoretical, and empirical studies of homoploid hybrid speciation suggest that it is feasible, although evolutionary conditions are stringent, and hybridization may be important as a stimulus for the genetic or chromosomal reorganization envisioned in founder effect and saltational models of speciation. Expand
Role of Gene Interactions in Hybrid Speciation: Evidence from Ancient and Experimental Hybrids
TLDR
The genomic composition of three experimentally synthesized hybrid lineages indicated that selection to a large extent governs hybrid species formation, and interactions between coadapted parental species' genes constrain the genomic compositions of hybrid species. Expand
Polyploid incidence and evolution.
TLDR
New estimates for the incidence of polyploidy in ferns and flowering plants are presented based on a simple model describing transitions between odd and even base chromosome numbers, and it is indicated that ploidy changes may represent from 2 to 4% of speciation events in flowering plants and 7% in f Ferns. Expand
Plant Speciation
TLDR
Polyploid speciation, in which the entire genome is duplicated, is particularly frequent in plants, perhaps because polyploid plants often exhibit ecological differentiation, local dispersal, high fecundity, perennial life history, and self-fertilization or asexual reproduction. Expand
Hybridization, introgression, and linkage evolution
TLDR
Genetic mapping methods provide a unique opportunity to study the interactions of differentiated genes and genomes in a hybrid genetic background and recommend that future studies of hybrid genomes focus on natural hybrids, because of the paucity of data and the availability of highly recombinant hybrid genotypes in hybrid zones. Expand
Rapid hybrid speciation in wild sunflowers.
TLDR
Estimating the sizes of parental species chromosomal blocks in Helianthus anomalus, a wild sunflower species derived via hybridization between H. annuus and H. petiolaris, provides a new and general method for estimating the tempo of hybrid speciation and dating the origin of hybrid zones. Expand
Polyploidy in angiosperms
TLDR
Genomic in situ hybridization allows unequivocal identification of allopolyploids and visualization of their ancestral genomes and indicates multiple origins for polyploid plant species. Expand
The likelihood of homoploid hybrid speciation
TLDR
The model is of recombinational speciation, in which chromosomal rearrangements between parental species result in poor fertility of F1 hybrids, but through recombination, novel homozygous types are formed that have restored fertility. Expand
Rapid genome change in synthetic polyploids of Brassica and its implications for polyploid evolution.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that polyploid species can generate extensive genetic diversity in a short period of time and genetic divergence among the derivatives of synthetic polyploids was evident from variation in genome composition and phenotypes. Expand

TLDR
Processes and mechanisms of gene and genome evolution in polyploids are reviewed, including the role of transposable elements in structural and regulatory gene evolution; processes and significance of epigenetic silencing; underlying controls of chromosome pairing and mechanisms and functional significance of rapid genome changes are reviewed.
