Abstract

Attention to the evolutionary background of 'early flowering ability', i.e. extraordinary shorter period from seed germination to the first flowering in Lilium formosanum, could have great potential for reducing costs in commercial production of lilies. We clarified the phylogenic relationship and geographic divergence of the early flowering ability and its related life history traits using seedling populations from natural populations of L. formosanum and its progenitor species, L. longiflorum. Based on the data obtained, we propose a hypothesis for evolution of the early flowering ability in L. formosanum.
