Glacial Refugia: Hotspots But Not Melting Pots of Genetic Diversity
Glacial refuge areas are expected to harbor a large fraction of the intraspecific biodiversity of the temperate biota. To test this hypothesis, we studied chloroplast DNA variation in 22 widespreadExpand

Chloroplast DNA diversity within and among populations of the allotetraploid Prunus spinosa L.
Abstract High chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) diversity was found within and among populations of Prunus spinosa sampled from seven European deciduous forests. A study of 12% of the total chloroplast genomeExpand

Effects of life‐history traits and species distribution on genetic structure at maternally inherited markers in European trees and shrubs
Aim  To examine relationships between life-history traits, ecological and chorological characteristics of woody plant species and patterns of genetic differentiation among populations as assessed byExpand

A population genetic analysis of chloroplast DNA in wild populations of Prunus avium L. in Europe
A population genetic study of chloroplast DNA was carried out in 23 wild populations of Prunus avium sampled from several European deciduous forests. An analysis of approx. 9% of the chloroplastExpand

Population genetic analysis of European Prunus spinosa (Rosaceae) using chloroplast DNA markers.
Chloroplast DNA diversity in Prunus spinosa, a common shrub of European deciduous forests, was assessed using the polymerase chain reaction restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP)Expand

Production and characterization of interspecific hybrids between Brassica maurorum and crop brassicas
Abstract Seven interspecific hybrids were produced between Brassica maurorum (♀), a wild species resistant to Alternaria blight and white rust, and all the monogenomic (B. campestris, B. nigra and B.Expand

An Overview of Important Ethnomedicinal Herbs of Phyllanthus Species: Present Status and Future Prospects
The genus Phyllanthus consists of more than 1000 species, of which many are used as traditional medicines. The plant extracts have been used since ancient times, for treating hypertension, diabetes,Expand

Chloroplast DNA study in wild populations and some cultivars of Prunus avium L.
Abstract The PCR-RFLP technique was used to detect chloroplast DNA diversity in wild populations of Prunus avium from five European deciduous forests and some cultivars. A study of 10.8% of the totalExpand

Chloroplast DNA variation in cultivated and wild Prunus avium L: a comparative study
Chloroplast DNA variation in 96 Prunus avium L. cultivars was assessed and compared with the results of a previous study of cpDNA diversity in 23 wild populations of the species. The polymerase chainExpand

Association between chloroplast DNA and mitochondrial DNA haplotypes in Prunus spinosa L. (Rosaceae) populations across Europe.
Chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) and mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) were studied in 24 populations of Prunus spinosa sampled across Europe. The cpDNA and mtDNA fragments were amplified using universal primers andExpand
