S. anglica is a fertile polyploid derived from the hybrid S.alterniflora × townsendii ( S. alterniflora × S. maritima ), first found when American S. alterniflora was introduced to southern England in about 1870 and came into contact with the local native S. maritima. After a period of uncertainty concerning chromosome numbers of Spartina, Marchant (1968) was the first to establish that the basic chomosome number in Spartina is × = 10, as in most other Chloridoideae. Journal From the evidence provided, the probable cause for the increase in SARs during the ca. For example, although Grant (1981) did not mention recurrent polyploidization, he was aware that it occurred based on some of his own research in Gilia (Polemoniaceae) (Grant, 2002). Two samples of S. alterniflora have been analysed, in order to represent as much as possible the actual genotypes involved in the parentage of the hybrids, in England (Southampton Bay) and in southwest France (Hendaye). The number of recurrent origins varies considerably, and may be as few as two (Soltis and Soltis, 1993) or as many as 21 (or possibly even more) for Tragopogon miscellus (Asteraceae) (Soltis et al., 1995). Figure 3. Although, the mature coastal saltmarshes of Western Europe are dominated by C3 species, S. anglica is now the common primary colonizer, and its rapid spread throughout the twentieth century has allowed considerable expansion of saltmarsh area (Long et al., 1975; Long and Woolhouse, 1978). There are also ultrastructural differences in the chloroplasts. Spartina alterniflora has been introduced in the mid‐1970s in the San Francisco Bay of California where it now co‐occurs with native S. foliosa. In less than a century Spartina anglica, via seed dispersal, clonal spread, and human plantings, covered approximately 10,000 ha of intertidal salt marsh along the coast of Britain. Mimulus guttatus, M. luteus The pigment record supports the geochemical evidence in that both datasets suggest an increase in productivity ca. . Spartina juncea; Spartina versicolor) is a polymorphic species distributed along the east North‐American coast, from Canada to the Caribbean and Central America. Its particular vegetative habit, lacking rhizomes, and its tolerance to fresh water usually distinguish it. Both AFLP and MSAP reveal that hybridization, rather than polyploidization, is the main process that has shaped the structure of the allopolyploid genome of S. anglica. Because bottlenecked populations typically have low genetic diversity and hence should have reduced evolutionary potential, it is argued that this phenomenon could be simply explained by high levels of ‘preadaptation’ among the most successful exotic species with traits that lead to high fitness in new environments (e.g., high dispersal rates and competitive ability). Within 7–14 days of the onset of water stress the activity of PEP carboxylase rises and dark fixation starts, which can be shown to be due to de novo synthesis of the enzyme (Von Willert et al., 1976; Queiroz, 1977), and there is a general trend from C3 to CAM as the season progresses and water becomes scarcer (Fig. Several other genetic processes can also apparently increase the fitness of invasive species. Uniformity of the nuclear and chloroplast genomes of Spartina maritima (Poaceae), a salt-marsh species in decline along the Western European Coast. Spartina anglica is a perennial salt marsh grass which has been planted widely to stablize tidal mud flats. Understanding the past ecological events explaining the distribution of these five species should provide especially interesting data on the historical biogeography of the American flora. In 1965 Hatch and Slack demonstrated the existence of a new photosynthetic pathway in sugar cane, Saccharum officinarum. 7.7). Diversity in leaf anatomy, and stomatal distribution and conductance, between salt marsh and freshwater species in the C4 genus Spartina (Poaceae). Plants possessing this pathway are usually anatomically distinct as well, having ‘Kranz’ anatomy, with a well-marked bundle sheath surrounding the vascular bundles and the chloroplasts concentrated in a ring of mesophyll cells radiating out from the sheath (Fig. methods 2 bands Furzebrook the gel elec-Enzymes of anglicaand maritima in maritima in anglica,were British of alterniflora, the this and alterniflora ssp. By comparing the subgenomes in the hybrids and the allopolyploid to the parental … Gracilimiris litoralis Villemin, Europôle de l’Arbois, BP 80 13545 Aix en Provence cedex 04, France; Institute of Ecology, Biology Building, University of Lausanne, CH‐1015 Lausanne, Switzerland. (1999) and Marshall et al. mid-1950s alongside the second SAR increase (Figs. In this paper, we examine how these approaches have helped our understanding of speciation in the grass genus Spartina Schreb., where hybridization and polyploidy represent past and ongoing important evolutionary forces. Within Poole Harbour, there has been some debate as to the role Spartina anglica plays on the sediment accumulation of mudflats, e.g. were then able to form bivalent pairs in meiosis, which resulted in a fertile polyploid (having more than two complete sets of chromosomes per nucleus) (NWCB 2005). (2003) found near Hendaye a hybrid isolated clone that displays species‐specific nuclear markers of both S. maritima and S. alterniflora. This system allows investigations of the early evolutionary changes that accompany stabilization of a new allopolyploid species in natural … Genetic mapping of the apospory-specific genomic region in Pennisetum squamulatum using retrotransposon-based molecular markers. The position of S. densiflora is interesting to consider: a sample collected from California has been analysed by Baumel et al. ) and their hybrid ( However, rapid invasion and dramatic ecological changes in the colonised areas have led to the development of various local policies designed to control spread of the species. C3 plants cannot lower internal CO2 concentrations below about 250 μll−1 (25 Pa) because of the oxygenase capacity of Rubisco, which results in the phenomenon known as photorespiration – effectively reverse photosynthesis. As most of the polymorphism results from presence/absence of a priming site, AFLP markers are usually considered as dominant. (i) State how polyploidy differs from the type of chromosome mutation involved in Down syndrome. Murray, in Encyclopedia of Agriculture and Food Systems, 2014. Under these predictable and repetitive selection regimes mimicry can develop in seed, which increasingly resembles that of the associated crop species in terms of weight, size, and overall appearance, or vegetative growth traits, which also can converge. Declining tidal influence, and the accumulation of biomass (dry weight up to 7500 kg ha−1), transforms salt marsh areas into nonestuarine ecosystems. Abstract. Origin of the Spartina genus is another exciting question. In southern New Zealand, the loss of fish and other food sources in estuaries colonized by Spartina anglica threatens the persistence of 34 species of foraging shorebirds in these habitats. There are a few temperate C4 species, for example Spartina anglica (Mallot et al., 1975) and Euphorbia peplis (Webster et al., 1975); both are coastal species where irradiance is high and salinity may affect water relations. Phylogenetic approaches and comparative analysis of gene trees have revealed the reticulate history of various species (Wendel & Doyle, 1998; Cronn et al., 2003; Doyle et al., 2004). Because the internal CO2 concentration in the leaf is lower than in C3 plants, and the gradient between air and mesophyll across the stomata is steeper, the same rate of CO2 diffusion can be achieved with stomata less open, giving a lower stomatal conductance. The implications of this process associated with the cultivation of genetically modified crops are discussed in another section of this article. FIGURE 7.6. Unfortunately, Ownbey and McCollum (1953) could not induce polyploids to form from the F1 hybrids that they had produced, which would have provided the final piece of evidence. An increase in δ13C values would be expected to accompany an increase in terrestrial material, although in HB1, δ13C decreases (Fig. Land was reclaimed within Holes Bay for construction of infrastructure and industrial buildings, reducing the area of water for the sediment to be deposited. One of the most interesting paradoxes of invasion biology is that many invasive species, despite originating from numerically small founder populations, adapt extremely well to new environments and undergo rapid population growth and range expansion. 34.3 and 34.4). Estuarine habitats in southern England were transformed from exposed mudflats into tall-grass meadows. This species originated on the south coast of England at the end of the nineteenth century. a. Spartina maritima b. Spartina alterniflora c. Hybrid between Spartina maritima and Spartina… Both signifi- Spartina species are tetraploid, hexaploid or dodecaploid perennials, most of them being native to the New World. Alastair Fitter, Robert Hay, in Environmental Physiology of Plants (Third Edition), 2002. It arose as a result of chromosome doubling in S. x townsendii, a hybrid between the native British S. maritima and the North American S. alterniflora, introduced by shipping (Figure 3). 1940s–70s which has already been explained to be a result of industrial development as evidenced from the elemental proxy record. Most species are salt‐tolerant and colonize coastal or inland saltmarshes. Finally, recent approaches have contributed to explore the genomic consequences (at both the structural and functional levels) of allopolyploid speciation (Wendel, 2000; Levy & Feldman, 2002; Liu & Wendel, 2002; Osborn et al., 2003; Soltis & Soltis, 2004). The first one is composed of all hexaploid species that belong to the morphological Complex 2 of Mobberley (1956): the Euro‐African S. maritima, the East‐American S. alterniflora and the West American S. foliosa. Genomic expression dominance in the natural allopolyploid Coffea arabica is massively affected by growth temperature. Please check your email for instructions on resetting your password. Proceedings of the Entomological Society of Washington. Partial interfertility between independently originated populations of the neo-allopolyploid Mimulus peregrinus. The recent natural rapid evolution of the amphiploid perennial salt marsh grass, Spartina anglica, provides an example of allopolyploid speciation (Raybould et al., 1991). glabra Hampshire In Europe, hybridization with S. maritima resulted in S. × neyrautii (France) and S. × townsendii (England), with. Carbon isotope discrimination analyses show that many species can switch between pathways, and in Frerea indica, the perennial succulent stems have CAM whereas the seasonal leaves, only produced in the wet season, have C3 photosynthesis (Lange and Zuber, 1977). (Borough of Poole), pers. In fact many CAM species, particularly those in the Crassulaceae (e.g. If you do not receive an email within 10 minutes, your email address may not be registered, 1940 and to ca. It is in these bundle sheath cells that the malate or aspartate is decarboxylated, liberating CO2 to be re-fixed by Rubisco (Fig. The heightened competitive vigor and environmental range of Spartina anglica appears to derive from a greater genetic heterozygosity, due to hybridization and polyploidy, and expanded phenotypic plasticity. 7 mm/year from ca.

Spartina species are perennial, deep-rooted (30 cm), rhizomatous, sward-forming erect grasses that mostly occupy low- to midtidal mudflats. One of the most conspicuous contributions of the recent development of molecular markers and genomic approaches to our understanding of the speciation process is the awareness that reticulate evolution is even more frequent than previously thought. Mimicry is a fascinating evolutionary adaptation exhibited by some crop weeds in response to the strong directional selection typical of agricultural cultivation (Barrett, 1983). A polyploid is an organism which has more than two sets of chromosomes. The recent hybridization and polyploidization events in Spartina allow exploring the immediate genetic and genomic consequences of alloploid speciation at the structural and epigenetic levels. 2017). Spreading Spartina species appear to have fewer insect and avian herbivores in their new ranges. Phylogeny of a Genomically Diverse Group of Elymus (Poaceae) Allopolyploids Reveals Multiple Levels of Reticulation. A. Bortolus, T. Columbus, G. Leppig, J. Lessman, M. Gross, D. Bar‐Zvi and Y. Frenot are particularly thanked for having kindly provided American Spartina samples. 2.22; Winter et al., 1978). Evolution of enhanced reproduction in the hybrid-derived invasive, California wild radish (Raphanus sativus). Spartina anglica displays wider ecological amplitude than its parents across the successional sequence of salt marsh zones (Thompson, 1991). However, they are very time-consuming and lack the efficiency of molecular techniques, which can supply more information in a shorter period. There is little novel biochemistry involved in the C4 pathway, and the classification of a plant as C3, C4 or CAM therefore depends on the degree of morphological specialization (Kranz anatomy, succulence), metabolic behaviour (e.g. Long et al. comm. Characteristics of C3 and C4 photosynthesis. Diversification of the Spartina genus raises interesting questions regarding biogeography, history and evolution of species. The Evolution of Haploid Chromosome Numbers in the Sunflower Family. Sediment accretion rates of up to 17 cm yr−1 (average 5–10 cm) have been recorded within the tall grass sward, and in southern England Spartina caused elevation of mudflat surfaces by 1.8 m in 37 years. This young allopolyploid contains divergent homoeologous subgenomes that have not undergone significant changes since their reunion. The quantity of acid produced can be very high – up to 1 .4 m H+ in Clusia minor (Borland et al., 1992) – and the cytoplasm could not function at the pH values that this would produce. Colonization of mudflat by seedlings requires a rapid rate of growth and development of a root and/or rhizome system in the summer that is sufficient to prevent uprooting by winter storms (Long and Mason, 1983). As this hybrid displayed a very different morphology than the British hybrid S. × townsendii, it was believed for a long time to result from the reciprocal cross, that is, S. maritima as maternal parent (Marchant, 1977). 5 mm/year from ca. This behaviour has been termed CAM-idling (Rayder and Ting, 1983) and is distinct from CAM-cycling (Ting, 1985), where organic acid levels fluctuate, although normal daytime C3 fixation continues. Induction of CAM in Mesembryanthemum crystallinum growing in the wild on rocky cliffs by the Mediterranean in Israel. The expanses of Spartina, which reached its maximum extent ca. This is not to say that evidence of multiple formation was totally lacking in early discussions, and indeed a few investigations from the premolecular era did suggest that a single polyploid species may form more than once. Polymorphic fragments (i.e. The recent natural rapid evolution of the amphiploid perennial salt marsh grass, Spartina anglica, provides an example of allopolyploid speciation (Raybould et al., 1991). Contrasting with most allopolyploid species that have formed multiple times through recurrent hybridization (Soltis & Soltis, 1999), several lines of evidence indicate that S. anglica has undergone a severe genetic bottleneck at the time of its formation in England (Raybould et al., 1991a; Ayres & Strong, 2001; Baumel et al., 2001; Ainouche et al., 2004) with S. alterniflora as the maternal genome donor (Ferris et al., 1997; Baumel et al., 2001). As PAR increases after sunrise, there is a brief Phase II, in which the stomata are still open and both modes of CO2 fixation operate; then the stomata close, PEPC becomes inactive, malate is transported from vacuole to cytosol, decarboxylated, and the liberated CO2 fixed by Rubisco (Phase III). A number of studies have recently contributed to reinforce the idea that allopolyploid speciation may be accompanied by rapid genetic, epigenetic and genomic changes (Wendel, 2000; Liu & Wendel, 2003). By using a combination of primers with different selective nucleotides, this method allows sampling loci from a large fraction of the genome. Hybridization and hybrid speciation under global change. Stonedahl and Henry (Hemiptera: Miridae): New Distribution and Host-Plant Records of a Little-Known Plant Bug, with Notes on Seasonality The traditional view of speciation in plants mirrors that for other groups of organisms, namely that individual species are taken to form only once in one of several possible modes (e.g., allopatric, sympatric, or saltational speciation) (reviewed in Grant, 1981; Futuyma, 1998; Levin, 2000). (A) Origins of Tragopogon allopolyploids in the New World. Considering the extremely weak nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequence divergence between the sister S. foliosa and S. alterniflora (Baumel et al., 2002a) and the absence of reproductive barriers (Daehler & Strong, 1997), one could not exclude the hypothesis that the West American S. foliosa might actually result from an ancient dispersal of the East‐American S. alterniflora on the Pacific coast, followed by independent evolution of geographically separated populations. view this species on IUCN Red List. Of course, not all introduced species benefit significantly from these genetic processes; for instance, some invasive NIPS are known to have limited genetic diversity and evolutionary capacity as a result of small founder population size. The split between the hexaploid and the tetraploid lineages seems very ancient (Baumel et al., 2002a) and has been followed by the disappearance of the diploid ancestors. 1940–70. Hybridization between these two outcrossing, wind‐pollinated species occurs during overlapping of their flowering period. (1989) were able to reconstruct the hypothetical parental genotypes (presumably now extinct, or at least not sampled) that could have contributed these alleles. Ownbey (1950) and Ownbey and McCollum (1953) reported that the recently formed allotetraploids Tragopogon mirus and T. miscellus (Asteraceae) had likely formed at least twice. Recent hybridization and allopolyploid speciation in the hexaploid lineage of Spartina, as a consequence of S. alternaflora introductions. However, given the strong emerging links between genetic background, evolutionary capacity, and invasion dynamics, it is clear that treating invasive species as uniform entities with fixed genotypes will fail to adequately capture their likely behavior when faced with changing environmental conditions and selection regimes. Spartina alterniflora Loisel., a halophyte grass model to dissect salt stress tolerance. δ15N values are high and increasing, suggesting an increase in nutrients and/or productivity ca. Allopolyploid Speciation in Spartina Anglica The recent natural rapid evolution of the amphiploid perennial salt marsh grass, Spartina anglica, provides an example of allopolyploid speciation (Raybould et al., 1991). A combination of 11 selective primers generated 982 DNA fragments of which 534 were found to discriminate S. alterniflora from S. maritima. ex Hitchc.. Karyotype evolution in Phalaris (Poaceae): The role of reductional dysploidy, polyploidy and chromosome alteration in a wide-spread and diverse genus. To assess this in Spartina, we performed AFLP (amplified fragment length polymorphism) and MSAP (methylation sensitive amplification polymorphism) on young hybrids and the allopolyploid. Histories of Bioinvasions in the Mediterranean. Spartina anglica is now widespread along the English coast and is highly successful. The methylation changes encountered in S. anglica (not shown) were already present or initiated (i.e. Note the prominent sheath of photosynthetic cells, characteristic of Kranz anatomy, around the vascular bundles in the maize leaf. An extensive survey of isozyme phenotypes in British populations of the amphidiploid salt marsh grass Spartina anglica and its putative parents has confirmed that the species arose by chromosome doubling in S. x fownsendii, a sterile hybrid between S. maritima and S. altmijlora. Although more than half of all plant species are directly or indirectly the by-products of allopolyploid speciation, allopolyploid speciation is relatively rare in animals (White, 1978). loss of parental fragment or appearance of new fragments) was observed: 34 lost fragments and 7 new fragments (6.4% changes) were shared by the two hybrids. This species originated on the south coast of England at the end of the nineteenth century. The AFLP analysis indicates that parental genome additivity, rather than structural instability is encountered in this system, as previously found with other markers (Baumel et al., 2001, 2002b). Theory suggests that plants experiencing reduced rates of herbivory will reallocate resources away from resistance or tolerance strategies to increased growth, provided that the production of defense chemicals or tolerance mechanisms comes at a fitness cost. In this paper, we examine how the Spartina system has helped our understanding of the genomic aspects of allopolyploid speciation in the context of biological invasion. The allopolyploid S. anglica resulted from chromosome doubling of S. × townsendii. Chapter 4, p. 131). Chapter 4, p. 179). The hybridization of native and introduced Spartina species during the 19th century in the United Kingdom is presently occurring in western North America, where the recently established Spartina alterniflora (introduced) is genetically assimilating the common Spartina foliosa (native) through introgressive hybridization. . The first one is composed of three species native from South America or Austral islands (S. ciliata, S. densiflora, S. arundinaceae). The ancient hybrid S. densiflora also hybridized with native Spartina species. via introgression) and speciation (at the homoploid or allopolyploid levels) in plants (Stebbins, 1950; Grant, 1971; Rieseberg, 1997). Plant speciation – rise of the poor cousins, https://doi.org/10.1046/j.1469-8137.2003.00926.x, Total discriminant fragments between parents, Polymorphic fragments between parents (28). This fingerprinting technique involves the restriction of genomic DNA by two restriction enzymes (here, EcoRI –MseI and PstI –MseI) followed by selective amplification of a subset of the restriction fragments, and has been used successfully for the screening of structural changes in polyploids (Liu et al., 2001; Ozkan et al., 2001). crus-galli.

Is hybridisation a threat to Moreover, S. arundinacea and the analysed sample of S. densiflora were found to share a 426‐bp deletion in the chloroplast spacer trnT‐trnL. Most of the methylation changes (28.6%) are common to S. × neyrautii and S. × townsendii, which indicates the reproducibility of the changes in the two different hybridization events. (2002a). 34.3). acidity fluctuation) and the relative activity of the two carboxylating enzymes, and so, possibly, on environmental conditions. They are well adapted physiologically to tolerate saline conditions with special salt excretion, dilution, and restriction mechanisms. Spartina bakeri is found in Florida and Georgia. Interspecific hybridization can also result in combining two or more complete chromosome sets. Evolutionary history of chloridoid grasses estimated from 122 nuclear loci.
