Since the discovery of polyploidy in plants just more than a century ago, research on polyploidy is as vigorous as ever. At the Botany 2015 meeting in Edmonton, Alberta, six researchers participated in the symposium “Th e Evolutionary Importance of Polyploidy” to address recent debates on polyploid speciation. Th ese authors are joined by others in this special issue of the American Journal of Botany to highlight recent advances in polyploid research. Th e 19 articles collected here represent a… CONTINUE READING
