Interspecific introgression is a well-known phenomenon in oaks whose ecological and evolutionary consequences, although relevant, are still unclear. We investigated molecular variation and any evidence for hybridisation in nine natural populations of kermes oak (Quercus coccifera L.) from the Iberian Peninsula. Additive patterns in 59 nrDNA ITS sequences revealed that hybrid individuals showing intermediate genotypes between kermes and holm (Q. ilex L.) oaks are very frequent, although… CONTINUE READING
