    The nomenclature of Eastern Asian populations traditionally assigned to Cardamine flexuosa has remained unresolved since 2006, when they were found to be distinct from the European species C.flexuosa. Apart from the informal designation “Asian C. flexuosa”, this taxon has also been reported under the names C. flexuosa subsp. debilis or C. hamiltonii. We determine its correct species name to be C. occulta and present a nomenclatural survey of all relevant species names.

    Plant Evolutionary Ecology: from Molecular Mechanisms to Adaptation

    The aim of our research group is to study ecological processes in adaptation and diversification of plants. We apply the molecular ecological approach to study wild Brassicaceae.
