Cucurbita pepo contains two cultivated subspecies, each of which encompasses four fruit-shape morphotypes (cultivar groups). The Pumpkin, Vegetable Marrow, Cocozelle, and Zucchini Groups are of subsp. pepo and the Acorn, Crookneck, Scallop, and Straightneck Groups are of subsp. ovifera. Recently, a de novo assembly of the C. pepo subsp. pepo Zucchini genome was published, providing insights into its evolution. To expand our knowledge of evolutionary processes within C. pepo and to identify varia...

Plants9 vast variation in floral traits at a macroevolutionary level is often interpreted as the result of adaptation to pollinators. However, field studies often find no evidence of pollinator-mediated selection on flowers. This could be explained by periods of stasis, when selection is relaxed under stable conditions, followed by pollinator changes that provide innovative selection. We asked if periods of stasis are caused by stabilizing or absence of other forms of selection on floral traits,...

Populations of passively dispersed organisms in continental aquatic habitats typically show high levels of neutral genetic differentiation, despite their high dispersal capabilities. Several evolutionary factors, including founder events and local adaptation, and life cycle features such as high population growth rates and the presence of propagule banks, have been proposed to be responsible for this paradox. Here, we have modeled the colonization process in these organisms to assess the impact ...

Summary The Cucurbita genus (squashes, pumpkins and gourds) includes important domesticated species such as C. pepo, C. maxima and C. moschata. In this study, we present a high-quality draft of the zucchini (C. pepo) genome. The assembly has a size of 263 Mb, a scaffold N50 of 1.8 Mb and 34 240 gene models. It includes 92% of the conserved BUSCO core gene set, and it is estimated to cover 93.0% of the genome. The genome is organized in 20 pseudomolecules that represent 81.4% of the assembly, and...

Background Cucurbita pepo is a cucurbit with growing economic importance worldwide. Zucchini morphotype is the most important within this highly variable species. Recently, transcriptome and Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR)- and Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP)-based medium density maps have been reported, however further genomic tools are needed for efficient molecular breeding in the species. Our objective is to combine currently available complete transcriptomes and the Zucchini genome sequen...

In recent decades, the use of molecular techniques in rotifers has revealed the existence of many cryptic species. Although strong competition is expected among cryptic species, these species are often sympatric. Here, we present a review of sympatric cryptic rotifer species, focusing on those cases in which niche differentiation has been investigated. There are at least 42 cryptic rotifer species complexes, and species coexistence is commonly reported. Ecological differentiation among cryptic s...

Diapausing egg banks are reservoirs of ecological and genetic diversity in continental zooplankton. However, although habitat size has often been used as a proxy for population size, the relationship between diapausing egg bank size and genetic diversity has not been explicitly tested in zooplankton. We estimated the density and size of diapausing egg banks, habitat size and genetic diversity (for mitochondrial and nuclear markers) of 14 populations of the rotifer Brachionus plicatilis in an end...
