Data from: Genetic differentiation and admixture between sibling allopolyploids in the Dactylorhiza majalis complex

Ovidiu Paun, Francisco Balao, Maria Tannhäuser, Maria Teresa Lorenzo & Mikael Hedrén
Allopolyploidization often happens recurrently, but the evolutionary significance of its iterative nature is not yet fully understood. Of particular interest are the gene flow dynamics and the mechanisms that allow young sibling polyploids to remain distinct while sharing the same ploidy, heritage and overlapping distribution areas. By using eight highly variable nuclear microsatellites, newly reported here, we investigate the patterns of divergence and gene flow between 386 polyploid and 42 diploid individuals, representing the sibling...
