Mosses without Sex for 50,000 years

Karlin, E. F., Hotchkiss, S. C., Boles, S. B., Stenøien, H. K., Hassel, K., Flatberg, K. I. and Shaw, A. J. (2011), High genetic diversity in a remote island population system: sans sex. New Phytologist

This is a super cool article! The research was reported on both at National Geographic Daily News and Science Daily. I decided not to write my own summary of the research, since these two articles do such a good job. Check out these two sites for highlights of the research, which also includes an interview with the lead author. Scientific communication in action!
