For comprehensive understanding of gene flow consisting of pollen flow and seed flow and the consequences, one of the promising approaches is the integration of ecological and genetic studies with a model plant species or related species group to disentangle complicated interactions of the ecological and genetic processes. We present a brief summary of research aiming to disentangle the factors affecting gene flow in wild populations of Japanese Primula species as a model of bumblebee… CONTINUE READING
