Co-occurring Mediterranean orchids: morpho-anatomical, phenological, reproductive and microsatellites data from Ophrys fusca and Ophrys dyris in Central Portugal

How to cite this Dataset


The dataset includes morphological, phenological and genetic diversity data collected in six different populations in Central Portugal, from Ophrys fusca and Ophrys dyris plants. It includes morpho?anatomical traits from 272 plants, phenological records and pollination success assessments from 887 flowers from 260 plants (Chpt 2 datafiles). Relative DNA content was also assessed from flow cytometry measurements (Chpt 3 datafile) from 67 plants analysed. Genetic dataset (Chpt 4) refers to the analysis of 13 microsatellite loci in 162/ 167 plants (Chpt 4 datafiles 1 and 2). Files 1 and 2 consist of scoring data, file 3 includes the results of hybridisation analysis carried out from reference samples using Structure software.
