    ..The prevalence of pests and pathogens decreased along the south-to-north axis of geographic parthenogenesis. This highlights the potential of biotic interactions in shaping patterns of geographic parthenogenesis. ..

    ..These findings offer valuable resources for future work looking at epigenetic silencing and Cis-regulation of gene expression with particular emphasis on the effects of TE activity on asexual species' genome. ..

  6. Verhoeven K, van Gurp T. Transgenerational effects of stress exposure on offspring phenotypes in apomictic dandelion. PLoS ONE. 2012;7:e38605 pubmed publisher
    ..This study shows that stress exposure in apomictic dandelions can cause transgenerational phenotypic effects, in addition to previously demonstrated transgenerational DNA methylation effects. ..
