  1. 1. Population genetic analyses in the orchid genus Gymnadenia a conservation genetic perspective

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Susanne Gustafsson; Uppsala universitet.; [2003]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Genetic engineering; Orchidaceae; Gymnadenia; conservation; microsatellites; genetic structure; mating pattern; Genteknik; TECHNOLOGY Bioengineering Genetic engineering including functional genomics; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Bioteknik Genteknik inkl. funktionsgenomik; naturvårdsbiologi; Conservation Biology;

    Abstract : Small populations are facing a particular risk of extinction due to a lack of appropriate genetic diversity and associated negative effects, factors dealt with in the discipline of conservation genetics. Many orchid species exhibit characteristics that make them a perfect study object in the scope of conservation genetics. READ MORE

  2. 2. Evolutionary Ecology of Floral Traits in Fragrant Orchids

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elodie Chapurlat; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; agents of selection; diurnal and nocturnal pollination; divergent selection; field experiment; floral evolution; floral scent; Gymnadenia conopsea; Gymnadenia densiflora; Orchidaceae; phenotypic selection; pollinator-mediated selection; spatial variation; scent rhythm;

    Abstract : Why are flowers so diverse? Much of floral evolution is thought to be driven by pollinator-mediated selection. However, the connection between macroevolutionary patterns of floral diversity and microevolutionary processes remains poorly understood. In this thesis, I have used the fragrant orchids Gymnadenia conopsea s.s. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biotic and abiotic drivers of life-history and demographic variation in boreal orchids

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Matthew R. Tye; Uppsala universitet.; [2018]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Plant demography; life-history; climate; pollination; compensation; orchids; resources; Biology with specialization in Ecological Botany; Biologi med inriktning mot ekologisk botanik;

    Abstract : Environmental interactions, including both abiotic and biotic factors, are key drivers of life-history and population dynamics. Despite this, most population studies do not explicitly link variation in environmental factors and vital rates. READ MORE
