Bioclimatic assessment of the geographic and climatic limits to hybridisation in a sexually deceptive orchid system

Peakall, Rodney; Jones, Lauren; Bower, Colin; Mackey, Brendan


Australia is a major centre of diversity for pollination by sexual deception, a pollination syndrome unique to orchids and characterised by highly specific pollinator relationships. Chiloglottis x pescottiana is a rare natural hybrid between sexually deceptive C. trapeziformis and C. valida. We utilised bioclimatic models to predict the potential range of the parental orchid species, the hybrid and their pollinators. The predicted ranges of the parental orchid species rarely overlapped (only 2%...[Show more]
