Taxonomy and systematics are key to biological information: Arabidopsis, Eutrema (Thellungiella), Noccaea and Schrenkiella (Brassicaceae) as examples
This work summarizes and reflects past taxonomy and systematics of Arabidopsis and Noccaea and provides a modern synthesis of taxonomic, systematic and evolutionary perspectives for several species of Eutrema s.
Arabidopsis family ties: molecular phylogeny and age estimates in Brassicaceae
The dating suggests that the radiation events correlate with an ancient genome duplication in the early history of the Brassicaceae family, which is evidenced by recent genomic studies.
Contribution to ITS phylogeny of the Brassicaceae, with special reference to some Asian taxa
The findings support the expansion of Stevenia to include both Berteroella and Ptilotrichum, Sterigmostemum to include Oreoloma and one species of Anchonium, Crucihimalaya to include Transberingia and several species of Arabis, and Parrya to include Pseudoclausia.
‘Missing link’ species Capsella orientalis and Capsella thracica elucidate evolution of model plant genus Capsella (Brassicaceae)
To elucidate the evolutionary history of the genus Capsella, the hitherto poorly known species C. orientalis and C. thracica are included andCapsella bursa‐pastoris is included, an autopolyploid species of multiple origin, whereas the Bulgarian endemic C. rubella is not included.
AlyBase: database of names, chromosome numbers, and ploidy levels of Alysseae (Brassicaceae), with a new generic concept of the tribe
Database of published chromosome numbers and ploidy-level estimates of the tribe Alysseae is presented, together with the revised generic concept and the list of accepted names, to reflect the most
BrassiBase: introduction to a novel knowledge database on Brassicaceae evolution.
The Brassicaceae family (mustards or crucifers) includes Arabidopsis thaliana as one of the most important model species in plant biology and a number of important crop plants such as the various
Five Additional Tribes (Aphragmeae, Biscutelleae, Calepineae, Conringieae, and Erysimeae) in the Brassicaceae (Cruciferae)
ABSTRACT The tribes Aphragmeae and Conringieae are proposed as new, and the tribes Biscutelleae, Calepineae, and Erysimeae (Brassicaceae; Cruciferae) are re-established. The unigeneric Aphragmeae,
Phylogenetic perspectives on diversification and character evolution in the species‐rich genus Erysimum (Erysimeae; Brassicaceae) based on a densely sampled ITS approach
The phylogenetic framework strongly supports the monophyly of Erysimum and recovers some well-supported clades that are geographically, rather than morphologically, correlated.
The relationship between plant species richness and soil pH vanishes with increasing aridity across Eurasian dry grasslands
Aim Soil pH is considered an important driver of fine-scale plant species richness in terrestrial ecosystems. However, it is unclear to what extent this relationship is influenced by precipitation,
