Delphinium exaltatum (Ranunculaceae), tall larkspur, is an uncommon species that has a disjunct distribution in the Missouri Ozarks and in the Appalachian region. Given this unusual distribution, questions have arisen about whether gene flow is occurring between these two disjunct groups of populations, indicating that they form a single species, or whether the Ozark and Appalachian populations have been reproductively isolated for a sufficiently long period of time that they may each b...
