Data from: Comparing the genetic architecture and potential response to selection of native and invasive populations of reed canary grass

Brittny Calsbeek, Manisha Patel, Sebastien Lavergne & Jane Molofsky
Evolutionary processes such as migration, genetic drift, and natural selection are thought to play a prominent role in species invasions into novel environments. However, few empirical studies have explored the mechanistic basis of invasion in an evolutionary framework. One promising tool for inferring evolutionarily important changes in introduced populations is the genetic variance-covariance matrix (G matrix). G matrix comparisons allow for the inference of changes in the genetic architecture of introduced populations relative to their...

Data from: An integrative approach to delimiting species in a rare but widespread mycoheterotrophic orchid.

Craig F Barrett & John V Freudenstein
In the spirit of recent calls for species delimitation studies to become more pluralistic, incorporating multiple sources of evidence, we adopted an integrative, phylogeographic approach to delimiting species and evolutionarily significant units (ESU) in the Corallorhiza striata species complex. This rare, North American, mycoheterotrophic orchid has been a taxonomic challenge with regard to species boundaries, displaying complex patterns of variation and reduced vegetative morphology. We employed plastid DNA, nuclear DNA, and morphometrics, treating the C....
