Abstract (English)

Polyploidy is a prominent evolutionary process, particularly in plants. It is known to rapidly trigger a number of morphological, phenological, and ecological shifts, and may give rise to immediate post-zygotic isolation between the newly formed polyploids and their diploid progenitors. Consequently, it is considered to be the single most common mechanism of sympatric speciation. Various studies ...


Translation of the abstract (German)

Polyploidie ist ein bedeutender Evolutionsprozess, insbesondere im Pflanzenreich. Sie beeinflusst eine Reihe von morphologischen, phänologischen und ökologischen Veränderungen die zur Entstehung neuer Arten innerhalb einer oder weniger Generationen führen können. Weiter wird Polyploidie als der wichtigste Mechanismus sympatrischer Speziation angesehen. Zahlreiche Studien haben sich entweder mit ...
