Despite the remarkable species richness of the Mediterranean flora and its well-known geological history, few studies have investigated its temporal and spatial origins. Most importantly, the… Expand
Evolution of biogeographic patterns, ploidy levels, and breeding systems in a diploid-polyploid species complex of Primula.
Primula sect. Aleuritia subsect. Aleuritia (Aleuritia) includes diploid, self-incompatible heterostyles and polyploid, self-compatible homostyles, the latter generally occurring at higher latitudes… Expand
A new classification of the polyphyletic genus Centaurium hill (Chironiinae, Gentianaceae): description of the new world endemic Zeltnera, and reinstatement of Gyrandra Griseb. and Schenkia Griseb.

This paper provides a practical taxonomic treatment of the polyphyletic genus Centaurium Hill. This new classification defines monophyletic groups and thus reflects the phylogenetic relationships… Expand
Origin of Mediterranean insular endemics in the Boraginales: integrative evidence from molecular dating and ancestral area reconstruction
Aim The presence of numerous reliable fossils and the occurrence of many endemic island species make the Boraginales particularly suitable for integrative biogeographical studies. In this paper we… Expand

Abstract At the intersection of geological activity, climatic fluctuations, and human pressure, the Mediterranean Basin – a hotspot of biodiversity – provides an ideal setting for studying endemism,… Expand
Disentangling reticulate evolution in an arctic-alpine polyploid complex.
Although polyploidy plays a fundamental role in plant evolution, the elucidation of polyploid origins is fraught with methodological challenges. For example, allopolyploid species may confound… Expand
The potential of native parasitoids for the control of Mexican bean beetles: A genetic and ecological approach
Bruchid beetles in the genus Zabrotes are important pests of field and stored beans all around the world and cause enormous economical losses in Mexico and Central America. Native parasitoids have… Expand
Twenty-first Century Centauries: An Updated Review on Centaurium Hill and Allies (Gentianaceae)
- G. Mansion
Centauries have a long tradition in human medicine and botanical accounts. Early indications of centauries refer to the famous works of Theophraste (fourth century BC), Pline, and Dioscoridis (first… Expand

The genomic basis of adaptation to calcareous and siliceous soils in Arabidopsis lyrata
Edaphic conditions are important determinants of plant fitness. While much has been learnt in recent years about plant adaptation to heavy metal contaminated soils, the genomic basis underlying… Expand
