Key adaptations are likely to have a complex genetic basis. The most common adaptive transitions in plants rely on divergence in flowering time and mating systems, usually associated to ploidy-shifts. These features are often related to environmental heterogeneity and together they shape the genetic architecture of adaptation. By using classic and modern approaches, we seek to understand the genetic basis of adaptations in non-model plant species by evaluating short- and long-term effects of divergent reproductive systems on the standing variation, the spatial distribution of cytotypes and the ecophysiological responses of species to changing environmental conditions.
