Efficient long-distance gene flow into an isolated relict oak stand.
Geographically isolated and small populations outside a species' central distribution range are likely to be of major importance to a species' ability to quickly adjust its distribution range toExpand
Evolutionary history of vegetative reproduction in Porpidia s.L. (Lichen-forming ascomycota).
The evolutionary history of gains and losses of vegetative reproductive propagules (soredia) in Porpidia s.l., a group of lichen-forming ascomycetes, was clarified using Bayesian Markov chain MonteExpand
Modelling exploration of the future of European beech (Fagus sylvatica L.) under climate change—Range, abundance, genetic diversity and adaptive response
We explored impacts of climate change on the geographic distribution of European beech by applying state of the art statistical and process-based models, and assessed possible climate change impactsExpand

  • 19 February 2007
Historical and contemporary geographical distribution ranges with their associated gene flow patterns interact to produce the genetic diversity observed today. Often it is not possible to separateExpand
Resolving evolutionary relationships in the lichen-forming genus Porpidia and related allies (Porpidiaceae, Ascomycota).
The lichen-forming genus Porpidia (Porpidiaceae, Ascomycota) provides excellent opportunities for evolutionary, reproductive, and ecological studies of crustose epilithic lichen symbioses. However,Expand
Mitochondrial diversity of European pond turtles (Emys orbicularis) in Anatolia and the Ponto-Caspian Region: Multiple old refuges, hotspot of extant diversification and critically endangered endemics
The European pond turtle, Emys orbicularis (Linnaeus, 1758), is one of the world’s most widely distributed chelonian species. We investigated its mitochondrial phylogeography and demography using �Expand
Testing "species pair" hypotheses: evolutionary processes in the lichen-forming species complex Porpidia flavocoerulescens and Porpidia melinodes.
Pairs of taxa are commonly found in lichen-forming ascomycetes that differ primarily in their reproductive modes: one taxon reproduces sexually, the other vegetatively. The evolutionary processesExpand
Go east: phylogeographies of Mauremys caspica and M. rivulata– discordance of morphology, mitochondrial and nuclear genomic markers and rare hybridization
In recent years many cases of hybridization and introgression became known for chelonians, requiring a better understanding of their speciation mechanisms. Phylogeographic investigations offer basicExpand
Identification of single nucleotide polymorphisms in different Populus species
Partial sequences of six genes in 54 trees belonging to five different Populus species were analyzed for occurrence of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Genes selected are involved in woodExpand
