Molecular insights to fig wasp taxonomy and biology. For the genus of sea snails, see Ficus (gastropod). For the fruit of these trees, see Common fig.) is a genus of about 850 species of woody trees, shrubs, vines, epiphytes and hemiepiphytes in the family Moraceae.Collectively known as fig trees or figs, they are native throughout the tropics with a few species extending into the semi-warm temperate zone. carica) is a temperate species native to southwest Asia and the Mediterranean region (from Afghanistan to Portugal), which has been widely cultivated from ancient times for its fruit, also referred to as figs.Ancestral changes in pollinator ovipositor length also correlated with changes in fig breeding systems.In particular, the relative elongation of the ovipositor was associated with the repeated loss of functionally dioecious pollination.

Cat.inist, c’est le signalement de plus de plus de 20 millions de références bibliographiques (depuis 1973) issues des collections du fonds documentaire de l'Inist-Cnrs et couvrant l'ensemble des champs de la recherche mondiale en science, technologie, médecine, sciences humaines et sociales. Cat.inist is made up of over 20 million bibliographic records (from 1973 onwards) for documents from Inist-Cnrs collections covering all world research fields in science, technology, medicine, the humanities and social sciences.Separate and combined analyses indicated that the pollinators of functionally dioecious figs are not monophyletic.However, pollinator relationships were generally congruent with host phylogeny and support a revised classification of Ficus.Wang RW, Ridley J, Dunn DW, Cook JM, Yu DW (2009) Interference competition and high temperature reduce the 'virulence' of fig wasps and contribute to the stability of a fig-wasp mutualism.
