Our study found few differences between populations of diploid and tetraploid Galax in terms of their reproductive ecology, a finding that can simultaneously help to explain the lack of genetic divergence between cytotypes and the relatively frequent formation of triploid lineages (at least 31 times) and tetraploid lineages (at least 46 times) within the species (Servick et al.
