Ecological and genetic evidence for cryptic ecotypes in a rare sexually deceptive orchid, Drakaea elastica

Menz, Myles H.M.; Phillips, Ryan; Anthony, Janet M.; Bohman, Bjorn; Dixon, Kingsley; Peakall, Rodney


Species with specialized ecological interactions present significant conservation challenges. In plants that attract pollinators with pollinator-specific chemical signals, geographical variation in pollinator species may indicate the presence of cryptic plant taxa. We investigated this phenomenon in the rare sexually deceptive orchid Drakaea elastica using a molecular phylogenetic analysis to resolve pollinator species boundaries, pollinator choice experiments and a population genetic study of...[Show more]
