The presence of Crepis capillaris, a weed native of Europe, is reported for the first time from Mexico. It was observed as ruderal and invading pastures in the central part of the state of Veracruz, within an altitudinal belt situated between 1900 and 2450 m, in conditions of humid climate. It is estimated that the arrival of the species to this area dates from not much more than 20 years.

    Background: Arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF) are known for their beneficial effects on plants. However, there is increasing evidence that some ruderal plants, including several agricultural weeds, respond negatively to AMF colonization. Here, we investigated the effect of AMF on the growth of...

    Dispensable, supernumerary (B) chromosomes are found in diverse eukaryotic species. The origin and genetic consequences of B chromosomes have been the subjects of speculation for more than a century. Until now, there has been no molecular evidence that B chromosome DNA is transcribed and there...
