Systematics, biogeography, and character evolution of the legume tribe Fabeae with special focus on the middle-Atlantic island lineages
TLDR
According to ancestral character state reconstruction results, ancestors of Fabeae had a basic chromosome number of 2n=14, an annual life form, and evenly hairy, dorsiventrally compressed styles.
Systematics and biogeography of Lathyrus (Leguminosae) based on internal transcribed spacer and cpDNA sequence data.
TLDR
The systematics and biogeography of Lathyrus are studied using sequence data for the internal transcribed spacer plus 5.8S-coding region of nuclear ribosomal DNA as well as the trnL-F and trnS-G regions of chloroplast DNA, generally supported recent morphology-based classifications.
Legume phylogeny and classification in the 21st century: Progress, prospects and lessons for other species-rich clades
TLDR
This work examines how the legume systematic research community might join forces to produce a comprehensive phylogenetic estimate for the Leguminosae, and examines how morphology can be incorporated into legume phylogeny to address issues in comparative biology and classification.
Phylogeny, phylogeography and genetic diversity of the Pisum genus
TLDR
It is shown that although introgression from wild species has been common throughout pea domestication, much of the diversity still resides in wild material and could be used further in breeding.
The Ebb and Flow of Scottish Seaweed Use
TLDR
Although there are a growing number of industries using seaweed in Scotland, strong international competition has threatened the livelihoods of local small-scale collectors, and most of these industries are now supplied by foreign sources.
The bicentenary of the research on ‘beautiful’ vavilovia (Vavilovia formosa), a legume crop wild relative with taxonomic and agronomic potential
TLDR
An overview of the accumulated knowledge on Vavilovia formosa is provided and the results of the most recent multidisciplinary research are presented, showing that V. formosa belongs to the same clade as Lathyrus and Pisum, with a distinct status.
Spatial patterns and intraspecific diversity of the glacial relict legume species Vavilovia formosa (Stev.) Fed. in Eurasia
TLDR
Vavilovia formosa has suffered a range reduction following climate warming after last glacial maximum, which classify this species as cold-adapted among the Fabeae species as well as a glacial relict.
