Abstract:

Anecophytes are anthropogenic taxa which evolved under the influence of human activities in man-made habitats. Like other taxa they can be divided into indigenous (natives) and non-indigenous (aliens). Included in the anecophytes are cultigenic taxa and the hybrids between alien taxa as well as between alien and native taxa. They are native to the area where they originated. Proposed is the new term “cryptic anecophyte” for anthropogenic taxa with altered genetic structures (genotypes) not affecting the phenotypes.
