|The aim of the project is to use flow cytometry to quantify the risks of genetic erosion caused by hybridization in selected populations of rare and endangered plant species (NATURA, C1, C2, C3). Based on the results, a methodology will be created that utilizes flow cytometry as a fast, effective and easy method leading to efficient and low-cost setting of priorities for the protection of endangered species affected by interspecific hybridization and genetic erosion by related, sometimes non-native species.
