Molecular evidence for an Asian origin and a unique westward migration of species in the genus Castanea via Europe to North America.
The genus Castanea (Fagaceae) is widely distributed in the deciduous forests of the Northern Hemisphere. The striking similarity between the floras of eastern Asia and those of eastern North AmericaExpand

Allozyme and RAPD analysis of the genetic diversity and geographic variation in wild populations of the American chestnut (Fagaceae).
Genetic variation among 12 populations of the American chestnut (Castanea dentata) was investigated. Population genetic parameters estimated from allozyme variation suggest that C. dentata at bothExpand

High interpopulation genetic differentiation and unidirectional linear migration patterns in Myricaria laxiflora (Tamaricaceae), an endemic riparian plant in the Three Gorges Valley of the Yangtze
Myricaria laxiflora is restricted to the riverbanks of the Yangtze River valley and will be completely lost owing to the construction of the Three Gorges Dam. Genetic diversity and structure of nineExpand

Species‐level phylogeographical history of Myricaria plants in the mountain ranges of western China and the origin of M. laxiflora in the Three Gorges mountain region
Myricaria species in China occur mostly in the major high‐altitude mountain areas in and around the Qinghai‐Tibetan Plateau. The one major exception to this is M. laxiflora which is restricted to theExpand

Population structure of the wild soybean (Glycine soja) in China: implications from microsatellite analyses.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Wild soybean (Glycine soja), a native species of East Asia, is the closest wild relative of the cultivated soybean (G. max) and supplies valuable genetic resources for cultivarExpand
