Although our sampling is less dense in Navarretia compared to Collomia, these results indicate that allopolyploidy has occurred multiple times within the vernal pool clade, which makes discerning the timing of alloplolyploidization in N.
Certainly these anomalies of nature may be important to the process of evolution (hybridization and allopolyploidy are especially important for plant speciation), but with habitats and species disappearing at such an alarming rate, priorities must be set.
