The evolution of breeding systems and niches in Meconopsis Viguier (Papaveraceae) species from the eastern Tibetan region

Xie, Hongyan


Concerns have been raised about the viability of populations of Tibetan alpine forb species due to increased grazing, harvesting and climate change. This requires knowledge of the ecological niches and breeding systems of the species. I selected Meconopsis Viguier (Papaveraceae) as a representative iconic genus. To understand the evolution of divergent traits amongst species requires a phylogenetic tree. I generated trees using (i) DNA sequences of its and trnl genes and (ii) morphological...[Show more]
