The Global Trade in Fresh Produce and the Vagility of Plant Viruses
: A Case Study in Garlic
High diversification rate of Hyacinthaceae in the Cape (Fig. 4) has now been demonstrated in several other plant taxa [...] Commonly proposed drivers of this diversification include adaptation to frequent fires and nutrient-poor soils, low vagility, geographic isolation ...
The explosive speciation of many fynbos lineages has long fascinated Cape botanists. Two speciation models have been proposed. One suggests that fire-induced population turnover and fragmentation, in combination with edaphic specialization and low vagility, is the driving force behind speciation
This emerging pattern provides a modern test of the premise that propagule vagility has a central role in determining pattern of evolution.
