Using AFLP genome scanning to explore serpentine adaptation and nickel hyperaccumulation in Alyssum serpyllifolium

Alyssum section Odontarrhena is the largest single clade of Ni-hyperaccumulator plants, most of which are endemic to ultramafic (serpentine) soils. Alyssum serpyllifolium is a facultative hyperaccumulator able to grow both on limestone-derived and ultramafic soils. Analysis of different populations of this species with contrasting phenotypes could allow the… CONTINUE READING
