Improbable but true: the invasive inbreeding ambrosia beetle Xylosandrus morigerus has generalist genotypes


The wide distribution and dominance of invasive inbreeding species in many forest ecosystems seems paradoxical in face of their limited genetic variation. Successful establishment of invasive species in new areas is nevertheless facilitated by clonal reproduction: parthenogenesis, regular self-fertilization, and regular inbreeding. The success of clonal… (More)
