- Natural selection reinforces speciation in a radiation of neotropical rainforest plantsKathleen M Kay
Department of Plant Biology, 166 Plant Biology Building, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824, USA
Evolution 62:2628-42. 2008..Reinforcement may be particularly important in rapidly diverging lineages where ecological factors play a primary role in reproductive isolation, as may often be the case in tropical communities...
- Reproductive isolation between two closely related hummingbird-pollinated neotropical gingersKathleen M Kay
Department of Plant Biology, Michigan State University, East Lansing 48824, USA
Evolution 60:538-52. 2006..scaber to 99.4%. The results suggest that ecological factors, including habitat use and plant-pollinator interactions, contributed to speciation in this system and evolved before extensive intrinsic postzygotic isolation...
- A survey of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer substitution rates across angiosperms: an approximate molecular clock with life history effectsKathleen M Kay
Department of Plant Biology, Michigan State University, 166 Plant Biology Building, East Lansing, MI 48824, USA
BMC Evol Biol 6:36. 2006..Here, we systematically review the literature to assess substitution rate variation in nrITS among angiosperms, and we evaluate possible correlates of the variation...
