The Influence of Historical Geneflow, Bathymetry and Distribution Patterns on the Population Genetics of Morphologically Diverse Galápagos’ Opuntia echios

Abstract

Throughout history, remote archipelagos have repeatedly been designated natural laboratories to study evolutionary processes. The extensive, geographically structured, morphological variation within Galápagos’ Opuntia cacti has been presumed to be another example of how such processes shape diversity. However, recent genetic studies on speciation and… (More)
