The internal transcribed spacers of the nuclear ribosomal RNA gene cluster, termed ITS1 and ITS2, are the most frequently used nuclear markers for phylogenetic analyses across many eukaryotic groups including most plant families. The reasons for the popularity of these markers include: 1.) Ease of amplification due to high copy number of the gene clusters,(More)
BACKGROUND The best documented survival responses of organisms to past climate change on short (glacial-interglacial) timescales are distributional shifts. Despite ample evidence on such timescales for local adaptations of populations at specific sites, the long-term impacts of such changes on evolutionary significant units in response to past climatic(More)
Heldreichia Boiss. is a monospecific genus mainly distributed in Anatolia and the Lebanon. Although morphological variation and infrageneric phylogenetic relationships were recently studied in detail, Heldreichia remained as one of the few orphan genera that have not yet been assigned to any tribe. In the current study, we used sequence data from the(More)
In comparison with other Macaronesian Islands (e.g., the Canary Islands), the Cape Verde Islands have received little attention in terms of plant molecular phylogenetic studies, which might also elucidate the general floristic history of this archipelago. The Cape Verdean vascular plant flora (ca. 12% endemics) has traditionally been regarded as relict of a(More)
