  1. ncbi request reprint Empirical study of hybrid zone movement
    R J A Buggs
    Church Farm, Capel, Tonbridge, Kent, UK
    Heredity (Edinb) 99:301-12. 2007
    ..More long-term experimental studies are needed that incorporate reciprocal transplants, hybridization experiments and surveys of molecular markers and population densities on a range of scales...

    R J A Buggs
    Department of Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA
    Heredity (Edinb) 103:73-81. 2009
    ..We therefore show haphazard loss and silencing of homoeologues, occurring within decades of polyploid formation in T. miscellus, but not in the initial generation...

    Richard J A Buggs
    Department of Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA
    Mol Ecol 18:3334-9. 2009
    ..The data simply demonstrate that hybridization between divergent parents has a higher probability of successfully producing a species if followed by polyploidization...

    Richard J A Buggs
    Department of Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA
    New Phytol 186:175-83. 2010
    ..Our study shows that tissue-specific silencing, and even apparent subfunctionalization, can arise rapidly in the early generations of natural allopolyploidy...

    Department of Biology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL 32611, USA
    Cold Spring Harb Symp Quant Biol 74:215-23. 2009
    ..This methodology is particularly promising for groups such as Tragopogon for which limited genetic and genomic resources are available...
