The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) and adjacent regions comprise an excellent mountainous system to study plant diversification and speciation within East Asia. The uplift and eco-environmental processes of QTP have had an obvious effect on evolution of organisms in this region. The present study intends to test the potential correlation between evolutionary(More)
Transcriptome sequencing is a powerful tool for the assessment of gene expression and the identification and characterization of molecular markers in non-model organisms. Rhodiola algida L. (Crassulaceae), endemic to the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, has long been used in traditional Chinese medicine to prevent altitude sickness and eliminate fatigue.(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Saxifraga egregia (Saxifragaceae) is a perennial herb that is endemic to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau. We developed 12 polymorphic microsatellite loci for S. egregia to investigate its population genetics. METHODS AND RESULTS Forty-eight pairs of microsatellite primers (including 36 monomorphic loci) were isolated and characterized by(More)
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY A set of microsatellite markers were developed to characterize the level of genetic diversity and gene flow in two plant species endemic to the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, Spiraea alpina and S. mongolica. • METHODS AND RESULTS Using the Fast Isolation by AFLP of Sequences COntaining repeats (FIASCO) method, 16 microsatellite(More)
