World Checklist of Rubiaceae
Admixture facilitates adaptation from standing variation in the European aspen (Populus tremula L.), a widespread forest tree
The genetic signature of postglacial admixture between a Western and an Eastern lineage of P. tremula in Scandinavia is detected, providing a hitherto missing direct link between past range shifts because of climatic oscillations, and levels of standing variation currently available for selection and adaptation in a terrestrial foundation species.

Genetic diversity and natural hybridization in populations of clonal plants of Mentha aquatica L. (Lamiaceae)
Analyses of genetic diversity in three populations of Mentha aquatica from Abkhazia, W Ukraine and S Russia with the use of ISSR markers reveal that these plants growing along river banks can formExpand
Genetic variability of Prunus padus (Rosaceae) elaborates “a new Eurasian phylogeographical paradigm”
The observed genetic structure [nuclear (ITS) and plastid DNA] of the Eurasian populations of P. padus as plausibly resulted from at least two cycles of glacial survivals in refugia followed by post-glacial colonization events. Expand
Local differentiation and hybridization in wild rose populations in Western Ukraine
Three species of wild roses, viz. Rosa spinosissima, R. gallica, and R. canina s.l., sympatrically co-occur in Western Ukraine. R. canina is the morphologically most diverse of them; its diff erentExpand
ISSR (Inter Simple Sequence Repeat)markers reveal natural intersectional hybridization in wild roses [RosaL., sectCaninae (DC.) Ser. and sect. Cinnamomeae (DC.) Ser.]
Summary: Th e genus Rosa comprises about 200–300 species worldwide with many critical taxa, especially among European members of the section Caninae. Available data on breeding systems and frequencyExpand
Interspecific hybridization in wild roses (Rosa L. sect. Caninae DC.)
Variability of morphological characters and Inter Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) markers is studied in a mixed multispecies sympatric growth of wild roses in Lugansk province of Ukraine. SeveralExpand
Phylogeography of the European rock rose Helianthemum nummularium s.l. (Cistaceae): western richness and eastern poverty
The results confirm range expansions of H. nummularium from MediterraneanRefugia northwards, but also show the major role of eastern European refugia in rapid postglacial colonization of east, north and central Europe. Expand
Molecular Genetic Study of Invasive Shadberry Species (Amelanchier Medik.)
Genealogic relations between ITS1-2 haplotypes of the invasive A. spicata species have been traced, resulting in the conclusion that its formation was connected with hybridization between A. humilis and A. alnifolia; a hypothetical area of origin of its initial forms in North America has been established.

Colour polymorphism in common primrose (Primula vulgaris Huds.): many colours–many species?
It seems that the territory of the Colchis refugium on the E coast of the Black Sea contains both the highest flower colour and haplotype diversities and the analysis of ITS haplotypes indicates that P. vulgaris colonized the Crimea from NW Anatolia, making it clear that no segregated species can be recognized within flower colour polymorphic P. Vulgaris in the Caucasus region. Expand
