Am Nat 171:816-23. 2008..These results suggest that coevolution, rather than extrinsic environmental factors, has driven divergence in this obligate pollination mutualism...

- Divergence in an obligate mutualism is not explained by divergent climatic factorsWilliam Godsoe
Department of Biology, University of Idaho, Moscow, ID 83844, USA
New Phytol 183:589-99. 2009..In turn, this suggests that nonclimatic factors, such as the biotic interaction between Y. brevifolia and its pollinators, are responsible for evolutionary divergence in this system...
