An approach to determining anthocyanin synthesis enzyme gene expression in an evolutionary context: an example from Erica plukenetii Le Maitre, Nicholas C.; Pirie, Michael David; Bellstedt, Dirk U. (Oxford University Press, 2019)Background and Aims: Floral colour in angiosperms can be controlled by variations in the expression of the genes of the anthocyanin pathway. Floral colour shifts influence pollinator specificity. Multiple shifts in floral ...Journal article
Le Maitre, Nicholas C.; Pirie, Michael David; Bellstedt, Dirk U. (Frontiers, 2019)Introduction: The Cape Floristic Region (CFR) is a biodiversity hotspot, recognized globally for its unusually high levels of endemism. The origins of this biodiversity are a long-standing topic of research. The largest ...Journal article
Leaps and bounds: geographical and ecological distance constrained the colonisation of the Afrotemperate by Erica Pirie, Michael David; Kandziora, Martha; Nürk, Nicolai; Le Maitre, Nicholas C.; Mugrabi de Kuppler, Ana; Gehrke, Berit; Oliver, Edward G.H.; Bellstedt, Dirk U. (BMC, 2019-12-05)Background The coincidence of long distance dispersal (LDD) and biome shift is assumed to be the result of a multifaceted interplay between geographical distance and ecological suitability of source and sink areas. Here, ...Journal article
