    Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci 369:. 2014
    ..Several classical hypotheses about the ecology of polyploids remain untested, however, and allopolyploidy--regarded by most botanists as the primary mode of genome duplication--is largely unstudied in an ecological context...

    J Ramsey
    Department of Biology, University of Washington, Seattle, WA, USA
    Heredity (Edinb) 98:143-50. 2007
    ..In spite of the inefficiency of unreduced pollen in unilateral sexual polyploidization, the overall rate of neohexaploid formation (one in 233) was several orders of magnitude greater than estimates of genic mutation rates...
  3. ncbi request reprint Rapid adaptive divergence in new world achillea, an autopolyploid complex of ecological races
    Justin Ramsey
    Department of Integrated Biology, University of Guelph, 488 Gordon St, Guelph, ON N1G 2W1, Canada
    Evolution 62:639-53. 2008
    ..These results affirm the "ecotype" concept of the North American Achillea advocated by classical research and demonstrate the rapid rate of ecological differentiation that sometimes occurs in plants...
  4. pmc Polyploidy and ecological adaptation in wild yarrow
    Justin Ramsey
    Department of Biology, University of Rochester, Rochester, NY 14627, USA
    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 108:7096-101. 2011
    ..These results suggest that genome duplication transforms features of A. borealis in a manner that confers adaptation to a novel environment...

    Justin Ramsey
    Biology Department, Box 355325, University of Washington, Seattle, Washington 98195, USA
    Evolution 57:1520-34. 2003
    ..Additional studies of taxa at varying degrees of evolutionary divergence are needed to identify the relative importance of pre- and postzygotic isolating mechanisms in speciation...
