The ecology and genetics of central and peripheral populations of Carduus defloratus

The aim of this thesis was to test several of the predictions of the abundant centre model (ACM) by comparing central and peripheral populations of the model species Carduus defloratus along a gradient from the centre towards the periphery of the distribution of the species. The ACM predicts that be...
