Phylogeography of pollinator-specific sexually deceptive Chiloglottis taxa (Orchidaceae): evidence for sympatric divergence?

Mant, J; Bower, Colin; Weston, Peter; Peakall, Rodney


Divergence in sexually deceptive orchids is thought to occur through shifts in the attraction of specific pollinators, a process that is mediated by changes in the floral odours that lure sexually excited male insects. We investigated the origin of reproductive isolation in a sexually deceptive species complex of Chiloglottis R.Br.Orchidaceae: Diurideae). Two geographically separated montane regions in eastern Australia were sampled, each containing sympatric pairs of orchid taxa presently...[Show more]
