The plant phyllosphere faces a broad range of harsh abiotic fluctuations such as strong radiation by sunlight, severe dryness alternating with raindrops hitting the leaves, wind and temperature fluctuations.

Polymorphic clusters of pathogen resistance genes (Jonathan Howard)

Clustered genes may arise as natural selection brings together individual components of advantageous haplotypes, but they also arise through the elementary chromosome dynamics of gene duplication and cluster expansion.
