Although our sampling is less dense in Navarretia compared to Collomia, these results indicate that allopolyploidy has occurred multiple times within the vernal pool clade, which makes discerning the timing of alloplolyploidization in N.
This outcome of hybridization, which has also been suggested for allopolyploidy (Stebbins 1950; Levin 1983), may have macroevolutionary consequences that deserve exploration with the growing array of molecular techniques.
Heilborn (cited in Davies, 1956) held that the seeming lack of allopolyploidy in Carex might be attributable at least in part to this phenomenon, as the degeneration of all but one nucleus per PMC "prevents the formation of unreduced pollen dyads in any interspecific hybrid" (Davies, 1956: 351).
These are considered to have originated through allopolyploidy (Norrmann, 1985, 1999 and in press), because their members share variants of a basic set of three genomes, one of which has been related to the genome of A.
