    Leon R Perrie
    Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, PO Box 467, Wellington, New Zealand
    Mol Ecol 19:2916-32. 2010
    ..With their parallel origins, these 'evolutionary replicates' provide an unrivalled opportunity to investigate how the reproductive barriers and ecological differentiation necessary for speciation arise following polyploidy...

    Lara D Shepherd
    Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, New Zealand
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 49:240-8. 2008
    ..All of the octoploids appear to have relatively recent origins, with the dynamic environmental conditions of the Pleistocene possibly playing a role in their formation and/or establishment...

    Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, P O Box 467, Wellington, New Zealand
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 52:774-83. 2009
    ..This in turn raises the issue of how hybridisation might affect phylogenies and the ability to reconstruct them, even when using multiple, independent markers...
