RAPD analysis for genetic diversity in Changium smyrnioides (Apiaceae), an endangered plant1
TLDR
The results show that the genetic diversity of this species is high, and it is suggested that most of the populations should be sampled in ex-situation protection so as to retain as much genetic diversity as possible. Expand
Did glacials and/or interglacials promote allopatric incipient speciation in East Asian temperate plants? Phylogeographic and coalescent analyses on refugial isolation and divergence in Dysosma
TLDR
The results suggest that the same vicariance factor, i.e. climate-induced eco-geographic isolation through (a)biotic displacement of temperate-deciduous forested habitats, promoted the divergence of D. versipellis lineages and populations at different spatial-temporal scales and over glacial and interglacial periods. Expand
Phylogeography of a living fossil: pleistocene glaciations forced Ginkgo biloba L. (Ginkgoaceae) into two refuge areas in China with limited subsequent postglacial expansion.
TLDR
For the first time, this study provides evidence of the existence of a refuge area in Eastern China on the West Tianmu Mountains and hypothesize that this evidence supports that as a long-lived dioecious plant, G. biloba displays high levels of intra-populational genetic diversity that have been maintained in most populations, regardless if they are native or reforested stands. Expand
Draft genome of the living fossil Ginkgo biloba
TLDR
The ginkgo genome consists mainly of LTR-RTs resulting from ancient gradual accumulation and two WGD events, which sheds light on sequencing large genomes, and opens an avenue for further genetic and evolutionary research. Expand
Molecular phylogeography of East Asian Kirengeshoma (Hydrangeaceae) in relation to quaternary climate change and landbridge configurations.
TLDR
The current distribution and differentiation of components of presently isolated warm temperate-deciduous forests in China, Japan and Korea likely resulted from a combination of relatively ancient vicariant and immigration events, and those from Japan were particularly sensitive to range fragmentation and long-term refugial isolation throughout the Late Pleistocene. Expand
Genetic variation in the endangered and endemic species Changium smyrnioides (Apiaceae)
TLDR
Levels of genetic variation and patterns of population structure in C. smyrnioides were investigated using inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers and a high level of genetic differentiation among populations was detected. Expand
Phylogeography of two East Asian species in Croomia (Stemonaceae) inferred from chloroplast DNA and ISSR fingerprinting variation.
TLDR
It is concluded that components of temperate-deciduous forest types in South Japan and East China are particularly sensitive to range fragmentation, isolation, and enhanced species formation through climate-induced expansions of other forest types over glacial and interglacial periods of the (Late) Quaternary. Expand
Complete cpDNA genome sequence of Smilax china and phylogenetic placement of Liliales--influences of gene partitions and taxon sampling.
TLDR
This study found no saturation effect of the data, suggesting that the cpDNA genomic sequence data used in the study are appropriate for monocot phylogenetic study and long-branch attraction is unlikely to be the cause to explain the result of two well-supported, conflict placements of Liliales. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Geographic Differentiation in the Threatened Species Dysosma pleiantha in China as Revealed by ISSR Analysis
TLDR
Low seedling recruitment due to inbreeding, restricted gene flow, and genetic drift are proposed as determinant factors responsible for the low genetic diversity and high genetic differentiation observed in Dysosma pleiantha. Expand
Molecular phylogeography and ecological niche modelling of a widespread herbaceous climber, Tetrastigma hemsleyanum (Vitaceae): insights into Plio-Pleistocene range dynamics of evergreen forest in
TLDR
The findings suggest relative demographic stability of this biome in China over the last glacial-interglacial cycle, in contrast with palaeobiome reconstructions showing that this forest biome retreated to areas of today's tropical South China during the LGM. Expand
