Lost in the hybridisation vortex: high-elevation Senecio hercynicus (Compositae, Senecioneae) is genetically swamped by its congener S. ovatus in the Bavarian Forest National Park (SE Germany)

Bog, Manuela ; Bässler, Claus ; Oberprieler, Christoph


Hybridisation is an important evolutionary process. The investigation of hybridisation along elevational gradients, with their steep abiotic and biotic clines, provides insight into the adaptation and maintenance of species in adjacent habitats. The rare Senecio hercynicus and its spreading congener S. ovatus are vertically vicariant species that show hybridisation in their range overlaps. In the ...
