    New Phytol 182:507-18. 2009
    ..We argue that this asymmetric relationship may be reinforced immediately after hybrid formation, during stabilization and establishment. Underlying mechanisms potentially producing this pattern are discussed...

    Mol Ecol 17:4263-75. 2008
    ..Therefore, range shifts produced by palaeoclimatic oscillations seem to have acted on the genetic structure of R. alpestris group on a more regional level, e.g. triggering an allopatric separation of R. traunfellneri from R. bilobus...

    Jodrell Laboratory, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Richmond, Surrey, United Kingdom
    Mol Biol Evol 27:2465-73. 2010
    ..Our results strongly suggest a need to expand our current evolutionary framework to encompass a complementary epigenetic dimension when seeking to understand population processes that drive phenotypic evolution and adaptation...

    Mark W Chase
    Jodrell Laboratory, Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, Richmond, Surrey TW9 3DS, UK
    BMC Biol 8:45. 2010
    ..Recent studies, including one in BMC Evolutionary Biology, show that pollinator shifts can play a role in both mechanisms of hybrid speciation...
