Hybridization of Oxalis corniculata and O. dillenii in their non-native range Meise Botanic Garden KU Leuven
Many species have been introduced beyond their native ranges and many have become global weeds. Human mediated dispersal has removed the geographic isolation of these species, reversing millions of years of independent evolution. Examples are the Oxalis species in section Corniculatae where several species have become invasive. Here we characterize and formally describe a hybrid between O. dillenii and O. corniculata, which occurs ...
Tectonics, climate and the diversification of the tropical African terrestrial flora and fauna Meise Botanic Garden
Tropical Africa is home to an astonishing biodiversity occurring in a variety of ecosystems. Past climatic change and geological events have impacted the evolution and diversification of this biodiversity. During the last two decades, around 90 dated molecular phylogenies of different clades across animals and plants have been published leading to an increased understanding of the diversification and speciation processes generating tropical ...

Using seminatural and simulated habitats for seed germination ecology of banana wild relatives Meise Botanic Garden KU Leuven
2. Here, we demonstrate an alternative—the use of glasshouses in botanic gardens as simulated-natural habitats to extend the ecological interpretation of germination studies. Our focal taxa ...
