    • Is spinelessness a stable character in cactus pear cultivars? Implications for invasiveness 

      Novoa, A.; Flepu, V.; Boatwright, J.S. (Elsevier Ltd, 2019)
      Selection against invasiveness allows breeders to continue trading with plant cultivars when the wild species is otherwise invasive. However, to ensure the benefits of a species over the medium-to longer-term, it is necessary ...
