The coastal perennial ecotype of the yellow monkeyflower, Mimulus guttatus, near Duncan's Landing in Northern California is shown above. In M. guttatus, a geographically widespread chromosomal inversion is involved in local adaptation and consequent reproductive isolation between annual and perennial ecotypes (see Lowry and Willis, e1000500), including the one featured in this photo.
