Building a vision for the future: creating a roadmap for UK plant sciences

Plant science has a central role to play in so many of the global challenges facing the world today, including our future food security, the conservation of biodiversity, sustaining ecosystem services, improving global health and mitigating impacts of global climate change. The UK is internationally recognised for its excellence in plant science, and as such is well positioned to help provide solutions across the range of challenges facing the planet now and in the future.

Grey Alpine Groundsel (Senecio incanus ssp. carniolicus)

Ecological differentiation of Senecio by ploidy is stronger in areas of sympatry

Characterizing ecological niches via Landolt indicator values of accompanying species, Sonnleitner et al. found that niches of four groups (two diploids, one tetraploid, one hexaploid) of Senecio carniolicus s.l. (Asteraceae) differed with respect to temperature, light and soil properties, but not in their breadths.
