Novel sequencing technologies were recently used to generate sequences from multiple melon (Cucumis melo L.) genotypes, enabling the in silico identification of large single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) collections. In order to optimize the use of these markers, SNP validation and large-scale genotyping are necessary. In this paper, we present the first(More)
Melon (Cucumis melo L.) landraces of the Madrid provenance, Spain, have received national distinction for their high fruit quality and sensorial attributes. More specifically, a unique array of Group Inodorus landraces have been continuously cultivated and conserved by farmers in the municipality of Villaconejos since the 19th century. Their genetic(More)
An intense exploration of the Spanish Cantabrian coast for the presence or absence of wild Brassica oleracea L., yielded 24 new localities to be added to the 21 previously known. Of the resulting 45 localities, 22 correspond to Asturias, 11 to Cantabria and 12 to the Basque Country. Data on the habitat requirements of this plant have been annotated, the(More)
Monoecy allows high plasticity in gender expression because the production of separate female and male flowers increases the ability to respond to specific environmental circumstances. We studied variation in sexual expression and its correlates in the monoecious shrub Buxus balearica, for two years, in six populations in the Balearic Islands and four in(More)
One hundred and one Spanish landraces of lentil maintained in the Plant Genetic Resources Centre (CRF) and coming from different micro-climatic areas were evaluated for 16 morphological characters. Origin zones were classified following Papadakis agro-climatic parameters and the relationships between climatic data zones and morphological traits were(More)
The variability of 14 landraces belonging to a Madrilean village historically specialized on melon cultivation, Villaconejos, was evaluated based on 58 quantitative and qualitative morphological traits. These landraces were compared to a reference array composed of 14 accessions which represented the main varieties cultivated in Spanish fields. Individual(More)
At the mountain area close to the city of Madrid, common beans were one of the main food crops present in everyday diet until 1960. This paper describes the morphological diversity, for forty-six phenological and morphological traits, found in forty-three traditional varieties of common beans collected in this area and seven commercial varieties used as(More)
The exponential increase of mobile telephony has led to a pronounced increase in electromagnetic fields in the environment that may affect pollinator communities and threaten pollination as a key ecosystem service. Previous studies conducted on model species under laboratory conditions have shown negative effects of electromagnetic radiation (EMR) on(More)
The variability of 62 Spanish landraces (and two hybrids used as reference) was described by analysing 39 morphological traits and eight SSR makers. Results showed that 81% of the examined genetic pool belonged to the inodorus type. Spanish traditional melons presented fruits from flattened and globular shapes to elliptical. Rind colour varied from pale(More)
