Allozyme diversity in endemic flowering plant species of the Juan Fernandez Archipelago, Chile: ecological and historical factors with implications for conservation.
TLDR
High mean G(ST) values for the species examined illustrate the need for conserving as many populations as possible, either in the wild or in the garden, to preserve maximal diversity within species.
CHLOROPLAST DNA EVIDENCE FOR THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF TOMATOES, POTATOES, AND PEPINOS (SOLANACEAE)
TLDR
The chloroplast DNA restriction site analysis results support the controversial, but previously suggested, treatment of Lycopersicon as congeneric with Solanum in subgenus Potatoe and suggest that Cyphomandra should be included within SolAnum.
A survey of floral traits, breeding systems, floral visitors, and pollination systems of the angiosperms of the Juan Fernández Islands (Chile)
A survey of the reproductive features of the angiosperm flora of the Juan Fernández Archipelago (Chile) is presented to provide a species-based review of reproduction and pollination, to identify
FUNCTIONAL DIOECY AND ANDROMONOECY IN SOLANUM
TLDR
It is suggested that the andromonoecious condition was derived from hermaphroditic‐flowered ancestors in part by hemisterilization of flowers but largely by addition of staminate flowers.
Breeding System and pollination of selected plants endemic to Juan Fernandez Islands.
TLDR
Floral features often reflect ancestral reproductive systems, so floral biology studies of oceanic islands in particular must be done with cognizance of presumed ancestral forms, because the observed characters can be misleading.
THE POLLINATION BIOLOGY OF TILIA
TLDR
It is concluded that Tilia is a generalist in regard to pollination, and it is proposed that the lack of clear morphological differences between Tilia species leads to pol.
Dioecy and wind pollination in Pernettya rigida (Ericaceae) of the Juan Fernández Islands
TLDR
It is concluded that pollen is transferred abiotically and the ever-present wind over the exposed ridges of the islands is the likely dispersal agent.
POLLEN-OVULE RATIOS AND BREEDING SYSTEM EVOLUTION IN SOLANUM SECTION BASARTHRUM (SOLANACEAE)'
Pollen-ovule ratio, pollen grains per flower, pollen grain volume, pollen biomass, ovules per ovary, seeds per fruit, seed volume, seed biomass, and corolla size were studied to reveal patterns of
