Population genetic structure in European populations of Spiranthes romanzoffiana set in the context of other genetic studies on orchids
Spiranthes romanzoffiana Cham. is restricted in Europe to the British Isles, where it is recognised as a conservation priority species due to frequent extirpation of populations along with noExpand
Evolutionary Strata on the X Chromosomes of the Dioecious Plant Silene latifolia: Evidence From New Sex-Linked Genes
Despite its recent evolutionary origin, the sex chromosome system of the plant Silene latifolia shows signs of progressive suppression of recombination having created evolutionary strata of differentExpand
Molecular systematics and remodelling of Chirita and associated genera (Gesneriaceae)
The polyphyletic genus Chirita is remodelled after an extensive molecular phylogenetic study of species assigned to it and to other associated genera. Most of Chirita sect. Chirita and the monotypicExpand
Expansion of the Pseudo-autosomal Region and Ongoing Recombination Suppression in the Silene latifolia Sex Chromosomes
There are two very interesting aspects to the evolution of sex chromosomes: what happens after recombination between these chromosome pairs stops and why suppressed recombination evolves. The formerExpand
Nucleotide diversity in Silene latifolia autosomal and sex-linked genes
The plant Silene latifolia has separate sexes and sex chromosomes, and is of interest for studying the early stages of sex chromosome evolution, especially the evolution of non-recombining regions onExpand
A molecular phylogenetic assessment of the advanced Asiatic and Malesian didymocarpoid Gesneriaceae with focus on non-monophyletic and monotypic genera
Based on a considerably enlarged sampling, a phylogenetic analysis of the largest group of didymocarpoid Gesneriaceae, the “advanced Asiatic and Malesian genera”, was performed, covering all but 3 ofExpand
DNA barcoding of European Herbertus (Marchantiopsida, Herbertaceae) and the discovery and description of a new species
DNA barcoding of a group of European liverwort species from the genus Herbertus was undertaken using three plastid (matK, rbcL and trnH‐psbA) and one nuclear (ITS) marker. The DNA barcode data wereExpand
Active Miniature Transposons From a Plant Genome and Its Nonrecombining Y Chromosome
Mechanisms involved in eroding fitness of evolving Y chromosomes have been the focus of much theoretical and empirical work. Evolving Y chromosomes are expected to accumulate transposable elementsExpand
High universality of matK primers for barcoding gymnosperms
Abstract  DNA barcoding is a tool to provide rapid and accurate taxonomic identification using a standard DNA region. A two‐marker combination of matK+rbcL was formally proposed as the core barcodeExpand
Centromere Locations and Associated Chromosome Rearrangements in Arabidopsis lyrata and A. thaliana
We analyzed linkage and chromosomal positions of genes in A. lyrata ssp. petraea that are located near the centromere (CEN) regions of A. thaliana, using at least two genes from the short and longExpand
