Willows (Salix) and poplars (Populus) are known worldwide as woody species with diverse uses [1, 2]. Although these two genera diverged from each other around the early Eocene [3], they share numerous traits, including the same chromosome number of 2n = 38 and the common 'Salicoid' genome duplication with a high macrosynteny [4, 5]. However, most willow species flower early in their lives with short, small and sometimes indistinct stems, and thus differ from poplars in their life histories and… CONTINUE READING
