PREMISE OF THE STUDY The dispersal process involves emigration from a focal source, dispersal through the landscape, and immigration into a new population or habitat. Despite the fact that dispersal is vital for the long-term persistence of a species, key stages of the process are unknown or understudied for many species, including the importance and contribution of asexual reproduction. Focusing only on a single stage in the dispersal process may give an incomplete and potentially flawed… Expand
The impact of asexual and sexual reproduction in spatial genetic structure within and between populations of the dioecious plant Marchantia inflexa (Marchantiaceae)
TLDR
This study demonstrates that studying only the sexes and not their genotypes can limit the understanding of the extent to which reproductive modes (sexual or asexual) influence genetic structure both within and between populations. Expand
Intra-specific variation exists in the asexual reproductive success of the peat moss genus Sphagnum
TLDR
It is hypothesized that in eight species of the Sphagnum genus studied herein, within-species genets differed in their ability to asexually reproduce following fragmentation, that species and genets would exhibit statistically significant differences in asexual reproduction as a function of nutrient treatment, and that within- species genets had variable responses to nutrient treatment. Expand
Geographical range in liverworts: does sex really matter?
TLDR
The results challenge the long-held notion that spores, and not vegetative propagules, are involved in long-distance dispersal, so that monoecious species do not tend to display, on average, broader distribution ranges than dioecious ones. Expand
Maintenance of the sexes and persistence of a clonal organism in spatially complex metapopulations
TLDR
It is found that at intermediate distances between populations, metapopulations maintained both sexes, and the spatial arrangement of populations changed the threshold at which one sex was lost, which can help explain geographic parthenogenesis and the distribution of asexual populations, the persistence of a sexual species, and inform the conservation of clonal organisms. Expand
Propagula and shoots of Syntrichia pagorum (Pottiaceae) exhibit different ecological strategies of desiccation tolerance
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that cultured, dehardened adult shoots and propagula of a bryophyte are inherently CDT at an equilibrating RH of 50%, and rate of drying has a greater effect on rehydrated plant health than equilbrating RH. Expand
Distribution patterns of clonal plants in the subnival belt of the Hengduan Mountains, SW China
TLDR
It is revealed that plants in the subnival belt of the Hengduan Mountains might optimize their probability of reproduction through clonal reproduction, a finding that adds to the growing understanding of plant's adaptations to harsh alpine environments. Expand
Bryophyte Biogeography
Abstract Bryophytes include about 20,000 species characterized by their poikilohydric condition, high long-distance dispersal capacities, and cold tolerance. Despite these specific life-historyExpand

Effects of Topographical Heterogeneity and Dispersal Limitation on Species Turnover in a Temperate Mountane Ecosystem: a Case Study in the Henan Province, China
TLDR
It is suggested that the effect of dispersal limitation is more important than topographic heterogeneity on species turnover in temperate mountane ecosystems in the study area. Expand
Patterns and mechanisms of heavy metal accumulation and tolerance in two terrestrial moss species with contrasting habitat specialization
Abstract Anthropogenic activities have increased exposure to heavy metal pollution in previously uncontaminated ecosystems, threatening plant communities. Considering that phenotypic variationExpand

Dispersal potential of spores and asexual propagules in the epixylic hepatic Anastrophyllum hellerianum
TLDR
In A. hellerianum, the combination of occasional spore production and practically continuous, massive gemma production facilitates dispersal both on local scale and over long distances, thus allowing considerable gene flow at the landscape level. Expand
Dispersal distances and predation rates of sexual and asexual propagules of Allium vineale L.
TLDR
The ecological differences found between seeds and bulbils are small relative to the differences found among dimorphic propagules of other species, and do not fit the predictions of models for the conditions necessary to maintain the production of heteromorphic propagules. Expand
Molecular evidence for limited dispersal of vegetative propagules in the epiphytic lichen Lobaria pulmonaria.

  • 2004
TLDR
The genetic structure of three Lobaria pulmonaria (Lobariaceae) populations from Switzerland was investigated based on the observed variation at six microsatellite loci and the restricted occurrences of common genotypes as well as the clustered distributions are evidence for a limited dispersal of vegetative propagules in L. pul monaria.

Seed, Pollen, and Clonal Dispersal and Their Role in Structuring Plant Populations
TLDR
The scope of this review is to cover recent literature that contributes to the understanding of the consequences of seed and pollen dispersal at the population and community level. Expand
Patterns of reproduction, dispersal and recruitment in seaweeds
TLDR
A more realistic understanding of the reproduction, dispersal and recruitment processes of seaweeds will result if ecological concepts and methods are applied to them, with due consideration for their morphological, physiological and life-history characteristics. Expand
Hydrochory, population dynamics and distribution of the clonal aquatic plant Ranunculus lingua
The dispersal and dynamics of the clonal aquatic plant Ranunculus Lingua were studied in a marginal river population in northern Sweden, where this species is dispersed exclusively by vegetativeExpand
Asexual reproduction in a population of a leafy hepatic species Lophozia silvicola Buch in central Norway
TLDR
The seasonal pattern and degree of asexual reproduction of a boreal hepatic species, Lophozia silvicola Buch, were studied in a lowland population of the species in central Norway, suggesting an increasing proportion of gemmae in the dormant stage in the diaspore bank. Expand
Restricted gene flow in the clonal hepatic Trichocolea tomentella in fragmented landscapes
TLDR
T. tomentella appears to persist well in undisturbed habitats due to clonal regeneration, although restricted dispersal capacity is likely to prevent successful (re-)colonization in the potential habitat patches of recovering forest landscapes. Expand
CONTRIBUTIONS OF SEXUAL AND ASEXUAL REPRODUCTION TO POPULATION STRUCTURE IN THE CLONAL SOFT CORAL, ALCYONIUM RUDYI
  • C. McFadden
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1997
TLDR
The population structure of the temperate soft coral, Alcyonium rudyi, a typical clonal species whose sexually produced larvae and asexually produced ramets both have very low dispersal capabilities is examined, and inbreeding does not appear to contribute significantly to the population structure. Expand
Ant-mediated dispersal of asexual moss propagules
TLDR
It is shown that ants (Lasius platythorax) may play the role of a passive vector for dispersing asexual propagules (gemmae) of Aulacomnium androgynum, and that dispersal of asexual species may be mediated by animal vectors, thereby explaining why seemingly dispersal-limited species may in fact be target-oriented dispersers through animal vector assistance.
