Does anyone know of any research/examples on Hopeful Monsters in Plants?
I define Hopeful Monsters as organisms of a species that have macroevolutions to prompt new speciations. These macroevolutions being themselves, prompted by smaller gradual microevolutions in the species. See this paper for more details. I'm interested in a plant based example, or any good recent example, if plants can not suffice. Ideally research that is easily read and recent, and useful for arguing the existence of themselves?
