A lthough it has long been recognized that polyploidy (now often referred to as genome doubling) has played a major role in angiosperm evolution (1), analyses of genomic data have dramatically increased interest in the function of polyploidy in shaping plant genome structure and diversity (e.g., reviewed in refs. 2–5). Whereas early estimates largely based on chromosome counts suggested that perhaps 30–50% of all angiosperms may be polyploids, modern genome studies prompted the stunning… CONTINUE READING
