Regeneration of Robiniapseudoacacia riparian forests after clear-cutting along the Chikumagawa River in Japan
TLDR
Regeneration processes of riparian Robiniapseudoacacia forests after clear-cutting were investigated through dendroecological and microsatellite polymorphism analyses and showed that ramet trees belonging to the same genet were distributed in a cluster. Expand
Genetic diversity and structure of the tropical seagrass Cymodocea serrulata spanning its central diversity hotspot and range edge
TLDR
Analysis of population genetic diversity and structure of a tropical seagrass species, Cymodocea serrulata, at 34 sites spanning Philippine and Ryukyu Islands populations using microsatellite (SSR) markers showed significant genetic differentiation within and among geographic populations. Expand
Genetic structure of the introduced heaven tree (Ailanthus altissima) in Japan: evidence for two distinct origins with limited admixture
TLDR
Analysis of molecular variance showed the absence of genetic differentiation between the planted and naturalized populations, but the two groups defined according to the chloroplastic haplotypes (H1 and H3) were differentiated. Expand
Population genetic diversity and structure of a dominant tropical seagrass, Cymodocea rotundata, in the Western Pacific region
TLDR
The results suggest that the Philippine populations are tropical seagrass hotspots and perhaps the origin of the populations in the Ryukyu and Hainan Islands, both of which have important evolutionary potential in the face of environmental change. Expand
Transcriptional Responses of a Bicarbonate-Tolerant Monocot, Puccinellia tenuiflora, and a Related Bicarbonate-Sensitive Species, Poa annua, to NaHCO3 Stress
TLDR
The responses of P. tenuiflora and a related bicarbonate-sensitive Poeae plant, Poa annua, to two days of 20 mM NaHCO3 stress by RNA-seq analysis suggest that the genes regulating biccarbonate tolerance are constitutively expressed in P.Tenuifloa. Expand
Development of 16 microsatellite markers in Eusideroxylon zwageri by next-generation sequencing
TLDR
Next-generation sequencing is used to isolate and characterize 16 polymorphic and codominant microsatellite markers in 32 E. zwageri trees in east Kalimantan, Indonesia, finding that these microsatellites may be useful for genetic studies and conservation of E. wageri. Expand
Fine-scale initiation of non-native Robinia pseudoacacia riparian forests along the Chikumagawa River in central Japan
TLDR
The results indicate that sexual reproduction, in addition to asexual reproduction, is a major contributor to the fine-scale formation of R. pseudoacacia riparian forests. Expand
A baseline for the genetic conservation of tropical seagrasses in the western North Pacific under the influence of the Kuroshio Current: the case of Syringodium isoetifolium
TLDR
Clear genetic structure in S. isoetifolium populations was detected, indicating four genetically-similar bioregions, that is, the Ryukyu, northwest Philippines, northeast Philippines, and central Philippines populations, which indicated that the Kuroshio strongly affects the formation of S.isoetiflium populations. Expand
Development of 18 microsatellite markers in Pieris japonica, a poisonous tree insulated from the browsing pressure of herbivores, using a next-generation sequencer
TLDR
Using a next-generation sequencer, 18 microsatellite markers were isolated from P. japonica and characterized and will be useful for genetic studies of P.japonica, which will be essential for conservation of its surrounding environment. Expand
