Phylogeographical studies of aquatic plants are relatively rare, although river corridors are amazing study system. There are many questions about dispersal within river catchment and between different river basins.
May 1 to 3 2008 I was on conferention Plant Population Biology for the coming decade (21th Annual Conference of the Plant Population Biology Section of the Ecological Society of Germany, Switzerland and Austria (GfÖ), Organized by the Department of Population Biology, Musée national d'histoire naturelle). I presented my poster about preliminary result of phylogeography of Nuphar lutea (yellow water lily) in Czechia.
In my bachelor thesis I present temporal pieces of knowledge on phytogeography, and especially molecular phylogeography of water clonal plants and possibilities of their dispersion. Plenty of questions about history, dispersal, relationship and population structure we can not answer without molecular technologies at all. Another very important components influencing dispersal of plants and animals are their ecology and physiology.
