Research Setting(s): Forest
Species Referenced: Gelsemium sempervirens (Carolina jessamine),
AbstractAnalyzes 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.
