Identification of microsatellite loci in olive (Olea europaea) and their characterization in Italian and Iberian olive trees
Genetic evidence of intra-cultivar variability within Iberian olive cultivars
The work shows that the current designations of olive cultivars fall short of describing the genetic variability among economically important plant material, and a thorough investigation of the existing variability will prove of major importance for both management and economic production of olive trees.
Identification of microsatellite loci in apricot
The sequences of 21 primer pairs of microsatellite loci screened from a genomic library of apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) are reported and showed to be more informative than isozymes and restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) reported in the literature.

The analysis of mitochondrial D-loop sequences from 145 Lusitano founder mares yielded a total of 27 different haplotypes, which support the hypothesis of multiple domestication events in many distinct geographic areas over a broad time span.

To induce normal development of plantlets, a range of approaches were compared on solid culture media as well as in suspension cultures including treatments with ABA, GA3, zeatin, darkness, and cold to establish parameters according to which the best transgenic line for a chosen purpose should be selected.
Transgenic grapevines expressing coat protein gene sequences of grapevine fanleaf virus, arabis mosaic virus, grapevine virus a and grapevine virus B
Transformation of somatic embryos of Vitis sp. (grapevine) with different constructs containing nucleotide sequences from nepovirus coat protein genes
An Agrobncteriurn-mediated gene transfer system relying on repetitive embryogencsis has been used to regenerate transgenic grapevines and new alternatives in the genetic improvement of grapevine are proposed.
Genetic diversity in the Maremmano horse and its relationship with other European horse breeds.
Cluster analysis, genetic distances and genetic differentiation coefficients showed a close relationship of Maremmano with Hanoverian and Lusitano in accordance with breed history.
Environmental factors driving arbuscular mycorrhizal fungal communities associated with endemic woody plant Picconiaazorica on native forest of Azores
Investigating which environmental factors influence the spatial and temporal structuring of AMF communities associated to Picconia azorica in two Azorean islands showed that factors such as elevation, relative air humidity, soil pH, and soil available P, K, and Mg influenced AMF spore production and root colonisation.
