Management practices like mowing or grazing have a large impact on grassland species. Due to its evolutionary significance, the interaction between the flowering time of plants and land use is of special interest. Asynchronous flowering restricts gene flow between populations and promotes, as a consequence, their differentiation. We selected 12 populations across southern central Europe to study the impact of mowing and grazing on seasonal and genetic differentiation in the grassland species… CONTINUE READING
