Aluminum hyperaccumulation in angiosperms: A review of its phylogenetic significance
Aluminum phytotoxicity and genetically based aluminum resistance has been studied intensively during recent decades because aluminum toxicity is often the primary factor limiting crop productivity onExpand
A Plastid Gene Phylogeny of the Yam Genus, Dioscorea: Roots, Fruits and Madagascar
Abstract Following recent phylogenetic studies of the families and genera of Dioscoreales, the identification of monophyletic infrageneric taxa in the pantropical genus Dioscorea is a priority. AExpand
Exploring genetic variation in the tomato (Solanum section Lycopersicon) clade by whole-genome sequencing.
We explored genetic variation by sequencing a selection of 84 tomato accessions and related wild species representative of the Lycopersicon, Arcanum, Eriopersicon and Neolycopersicon groups, whichExpand
Phylogeny of Cyperaceae Based on DNA Sequence Data: Current Progress and Future Prospects
In the last decade, efforts to reconstruct suprageneric phylogeny of the Cyperaceae have intensified. We present an analysis of 262 taxa representing 93 genera in 15 tribes, sequenced for the plastidExpand
Symbiotic diversity, specificity and distribution of rhizobia in native legumes of the Core Cape Subregion (South Africa).
Rhizobial diversity and host preferences were assessed in 65 native Fynbos legumes of the papilionoid legume tribes Astragaleae, Crotalarieae, Genisteae, Indigofereae, Millettieae, Phaseoleae,Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Balsaminaceae inferred from ITS sequences
Sequences of the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA were acquired for 112 species of Balsaminaceae worldwide and five species of its closest relatives Marcgraviaceae andExpand
What is a Genus in Cypereae: Phylogeny, Character Homology Assessment and Generic Circumscription in Cypereae
Using a DNA-based tree as the framework, the homology of key taxonomic characters in tribe Cypereae (900 species in 19 genera, the largest of which is Cyperus) is assessed and revisit the question ofExpand
Phylogeny of Cyperaceae based on DNA sequence data - a new rbcL analysis
Since the Monocots II meeting in 1998, significant new data have been published that enhance our systematic knowledge of Cyperaceae. Phylogenetic studies in the family have also progressed steadily.Expand
CARNOY: A new digital measurement tool for palynology
We developed CARNOY, an image analysis application written from the ground up for use in palynology and morphology, which is available for free on the Internet. Expand
Rapid radiation of Impatiens (Balsaminaceae) during Pliocene and Pleistocene: result of a global climate change.
Impatiens comprises more than 1000 species and is one of the largest genera of flowering plants. The genus has a subcosmopolitan distribution, yet most of its evolutionary history is unknown.Expand
