Hybridization in Octoploid Fragaria.

The progenitor species of the cultivated octoploid strawberry Fragaria x ananassa are both native to western North America. In the Pacific Northwest Fragaria chiloensis and Fragaria virginiana populations are closely allopatric sometimes as close as 8 km. Botanists have described naturally occurring hybrid populations occurring from British Columbia to northern California as Fragaria x ananassa ssp. cuneifolia and as Fragaria x cuneifolia. We combined WGS data from previously published studies with targeted field collections and searched for patterns of hybridization in Pacific Northwest octoploid strawberries.
