Mastin publishes on plant systematics and evolution

Jared Mastin, Integrated Biology BS 2013, and MS 2017, recently published “Evidence for genetic allopolyploidy in Eutrema edwardsii (Brassicaceae): implications for conservation” in the international journal Plant Systematics and Evolution. The paper, which is co-authored by Leo P. Bruederle (Associate Professor of Integrative Biology) and Peter Anthamatten (Associate Professor in Geography and Environmental Sciences), grew out of research initiated while Jared was an undergraduate at CU Denver. Therein, they document the evolutionary origin of the Edward’s mock wallflower, a near circumpolar arctic-alpine species, whose closest relative is Eutrema penlandii, a federally listed endemic that is restricted in distribution to the Mosquito Range of Colorado.
