• Gene flow and genome evolution in peatmosses (Sphagnum) 

      Meleshko, Olena (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2021:82, Doctoral thesis, 2021)
      Speciation is one of the most fundamental evolutionary processes, as it creates biodiversity. Gene flow, or introgression, can bring genetic novelty into recipient species, and hence promote adaptation, while simultaneously ...
    • Is interspecific gene flow and speciation in peatmosses (Sphagnum) constrained by phylogenetic relationship and life-history traits? 

      Meleshko, Olena; Stenøien, Hans K.; Speed, James David Mervyn; Flatberg, Kjell Ivar; Kyrkjeeide, Magni Olsen; Hassel, Kristian (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Peatmosses are interesting for studies of speciation processes not only because of their frequent hybridization and recent diversification, but also their phenotypic diversity, ecological importance and ancient history. ...
    • Simulation as a tool to identify dynamical typology of water frog hemiclonal population systems 

      Shabanov, Dmytro; Vladymyrova, Marina; Leonov, Anton; Biriuk, Olga; Kravchenko, Marina; Mair, Quentin; Meleshko, Olena; Newman, Julian; Usova, Olena; Zholtkevych, Grygoriy (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Some related species give rise to interspecies hybrids with hemiclonal inheritance. The gametes of such hybrids transfer the set of hereditary information of one of the parental species. The water frog, Pelophylax esculentus, ...
