Mechanisms of prezygotic reproductive isolation between two sympatric species, Gelsemium rankinii and G. sempervirens (Gelsemiaceae), in the southeastern United States

Abstract

Analyzes the mechanisms by which sister taxa that overlap geographically do not hybridize. Although Gelsemium sempervirens and G. rankinii share pollinators, there was very little overlap in the timing of flowering for each species.
