Pollen-mediated gene flow in fragmented and continuous populations of Oenothera harringtonii (Onagraceae), a threatened Colorado endemic (2012)

This project will determine the extent to which habitat fragmentation is affecting gene flow in Oenothera harringtonii, an annual Colorado endemic whose habitat is increasingly disturbed by numerous development activities. Oenothera harringtonii has night-blooming flowers that are pollinated primarily by hawkmoths in the evening and matinal bees in the early morning hours. Hawkmoths are known...
