Mráz, Patrik ; Garcia-Jacas, Núria ; Gex-Fabry, Emilie ; Susanna, Alfonso ; Barres, Laia ; Müller-Schärer, Heinz

In: Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 2012, vol. 62, no. 2, p. 612–623

Spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe) occurs from Western Asia to Western Europe both as diploid and tetraploid cytotypes, predominantly in single-cytotype populations with higher frequency of diploid populations. Interestingly, only tetraploids have been recorded so far from its introduced range in North America where they became highly invasive. We performed phylogenetic and network analyses of...

Evidence for a combination of pre-adapted traits and rapid adaptive change in the invasive plant Centaurea stoebe

Henery, Martin L. ; Bowman, Gillianne ; Mráz, Patrik ; Treier, Urs A. ; Gex-Fabry, Emilie ; Schaffner, Urs ; Müller-Schärer, Heinz

1. Introduced plants have the potential to rapidly evolve traits of ecological importance that may add to their innate potential to become invasive. During invasions, selection may favour genotypes that are already pre-adapted to conditions in the new habitat and, over time, alter the characteristics of subsequent generations. 2. Spotted knapweed (Centaurea stoebe) occurs in two predominantly...
