"Two new species have been discovered on the island of Gotland. The intersections between rowan and finnoxel is the first new species found in Sweden in 60 years, reports local media."
"Rowan and finnoxel can not normally reproduce with each other, but in rare cases, however, they have been able to reproduce in the asexual way, which has occurred on the island of Gotland."
"The new tree species will be have the same genes but differ in appearance depending on where on the island of Gotland they are found. The species found on the northern island of Gotland, on the Bungenäset, is named bungerönn, Sorbus faohraei. The other species found further to the south-east of the island and has been named to the garderönn, Sorbus atrata."
"It's not so that we have found them all of a sudden, we've known about them for quite some time and have been thinking about what it is for something," says Mikael Hedrén, professor at the biological department in Lund, sweden, to Sveriges Radio P4 Gotland."
" We have taken the measure in different ways and examined them molecular and firmly kromosomtal and together, it shows here that there are two new, independent species that exist here on Gotland."
"to get classified as completely separate species requires, inter alia, that the trees differ in appearance from all other species. According to Mikael Hedrén similar bungerönn and garderönn common mountain ash, but larger and broader, divided leaves."
"this is The first time since the 1950s, as new tree species are found in Sweden, but Mikael Hedrén is optimistic of finding more species – if the longtime alvarområdena may be in peace."
" We can probably expect to incur additional species in the future by hybridbildning. If we want nature to be able to develop on its own in the future, alvarmarkerna get a stronger protection against exploitation, " says Hedrén to SVT News East."
