The first volume to address the study of evolutionary transitions in plants, Major Evolutionary Transitions in Flowering Plant Reproduction brings together compelling work from the three areas of significant innovation in plant biology: evolution and adaptation in flowers and pollination, mating patterns and gender strategies, and asexual reproduction and polyploidy. Spencer C. H. Barrett assembles here a distinguished group of authors who address evolutionary transitions using comparative and phylogenetic approaches, the tools of genomics, population genetics, and theoretical modeling, and through studies in development and field experiments in ecology. With special focus on evolutionary transitions and shifts in reproductive charactersa€”key elements of biological diversification and research in evolutionary biologya€”Major Evolutionary Transitions in Flowering Plant Reproduction is the most up-to-date treatment of a fast-moving area of evolutionary biology and ecology.This speciescomplex has provided outstanding opportunities for investigating the ecological andgenetic mechanisms driving sexual systemevolution. .... in sex- ual lineages, and in some polyploidy groups this can be obli- gate, although mixed reproductive modes are more common. ... Future studies of apomictic plants should provide exciting opportunities for investigating these problems through experi-anbsp;...
