Morphological, ecological and genetic aspects associated with endemism in the Fly Orchid group

Triponez, Yann; Arrigo, Nils; Pellissier, Loic; Schatz, Bertrand; Alvarez, Nadir

Description

The European genus Ophrys (Orchidaceae) is famous for its insect-like floral morphology, an adaptation for a pseudocopulatory pollination strategy involving Hymenoptera males. A large number of endemic Ophrys species have recently been described, especially within the Mediterranean Basin, which is one of the major species diversity hotspots. Subtle morphological variation and specific pollinator dependence are the two main perceptible criteria for describing numerous endemic taxa. However, the...[Show more]
