Similar but not equivalent: ecological niche comparison across closely–related Mexican white pines
By quantitatively assessing the niche overlap, similarity and equivalency of Mexican white pines, the results prove that the distribution of one species cannot be implied by the distributed of another, even if these taxa are considered closely related.
Remote sensing data can improve predictions of species richness by stacked species distribution models: a case study for Mexican pines
Aim Remote sensing data have been used in a growing number of studies to directly predict species richness or to improve the performance of species distribution models (SDMs), but their suitability
Phylogenetic Relationships of Pinus Subsection Ponderosae Inferred from Rapidly Evolving cpDNA Regions
Abstract Pinus subsection Ponderosae includes approximately 17 tree species distributed from western Canada to Nicaragua. We inferred phylogenetic relationships of multiple accessions for all widely
Noncoding chloroplast DNA variation in Mexican pines
Phylogenetic analysis of the restriction site and length variation showed patterns of variation largely consistent with previous arrangements of these pines, except for the position of Pinus nelsonii, indicating that Pinus section Parraya Mayr, as circumscribed by Little and Critchfield (1969) and later authors, is not a monophyletic group.
The leaf oil of Juniperus martinezii Perez de la Rosa and taxonomic status
ABSTRACT The essential leaf oil of juniperus martinezii, from the type locality, is dominated by α-pinene, camphor, sabinene, terpinen-4-ol, β-phellandrene, myrcene, linalool, kaur-16-ene, and bornyl
Pinus vallartensis (Pinaceae), a new species from western Jalisco, Mexico
The proposed Pinus vallartensis is distinguished mainly by its small seed cones and lax foliage and highlights the exceptional diversity of pines in Mexico and the state of Jalisco.
Morphological, Molecular, and Ecological Divergence in Pinus douglasiana and P. maximinoi
Leaf width and cone scale thickness of P. douglasiana and P. maximinoi are correlated with elevation and can be considered as incipient species undergoing divergent evolution characterized by incomplete morphological, molecular, and ecological divergence.
Pinus georginae (Pinaceae), a new species from western Jalisco, Mexico
After studying the cones and anatomy of the leaves in detail, characteristics were revealed that identify P. georginae as a distinct species.
Genetic relationships among Mexican white pines (Pinus, Pinaceae) based on RAPD markers
The results suggest that the closest pine species analyzed were P. ayacahuite and P. strobiformis, followed by P. lambertiana, and the most genetically distant species was P. chiapensis.
