- Genetic variation for sensitivity to a thyme monoterpene in associated plant speciesCatrine Grønberg Jensen
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Aarhus, Ny Munkegade, Build 1540, 8000 Arhus C, Denmark
Oecologia 162:1017-25. 2010..The different responses within a species suggest that plant-plant interactions can evolve; this has implications for community dynamics and stability...
- Do co-occurring plant species adapt to one another? The response of Bromus erectus to the presence of different Thymus vulgaris chemotypesBodil K Ehlers
Department of Ecology and Genetics, University of Aarhus, Ny Munkegade, Build 540, 8000 Arhus C, Denmark
Oecologia 141:511-8. 2004..Our results indicate that patterns of genetic differentiation and local adaptation may modify competitive interactions and possible facilitation effects in natural communities...
- Sex inheritance in gynodioecious species: a polygenic viewBodil K Ehlers
Department of Ecology and Genetics, University of Aarhus, Ny Munkegade, Building 540, 8000 Aarhus C, Denmark
Proc Biol Sci 272:1795-802. 2005..A simple Mendelian inheritance of sex determinism is unlikely in all three species. We discuss how our model can shed additional light on the genetics of restoration and point towards future efforts in the modelling of gynodioecy...
- 'Inconstant males' and the maintenance of labile sex expression in subdioecious plantsBodil K Ehlers
Department of Ecology and Genetics, University of Aarhus, Ny Munkegade, Build 1540, DK 8000 Arhus C, Denmark
New Phytol 174:194-211. 2007..We discuss our results in relation to the evolution towards, and the breakdown of, dioecy, and the ecological and evolutionary implications of labile sex expression...
- When gametophytic self-incompatibility meets gynodioecyBodil K Ehlers
Institute of Biological Sciences, Department of Ecology and Genetics and Bioinformatics Research Center, University of Aarhus, Aarhus, Denmark
Genet Res (Camb) 90:27-35. 2008..We also find that fecundity selection has a large effect on the probability of breakdown of self-incompatibility, in particular if caused by a mutation destroying the female function of the S-locus...
