Additional candidate genes have recently been identified for serpentine adaptation in autotetraploid Arabidopsis arenosa, providing evidence that some selected alleles were introgressed from the diploid serpentine-endemic A.
Galax is monotypic within its genus (Palser, 1963; Brummitt, 1972; Ronblom and Anderberg, 2002) and represents an autotetraploid series, with diploids (2x = 12), triploids (3x= 18) and tetraploids (4x = 24) occurring in uniform- as well as mixed-cytotype populations (Baldwin, 1941; Nesom, 1983; Burton and Husband, 1999).
