Chromosomal rearrangements in the rye genome relative to that of wheat
An RFLP-based genetic map of Secale Cereale has provided evidence for multiple evolutionary translocations in the rye genome relative to that of hexaploid wheat, which has relevance for strategies designed to transfer useful genes from rye, and probably other related species, to wheat. Expand
Biological Flora of the British Isles: Fagus sylvatica
This account presents information on all aspects of the biology of Fagus sylvatica L. that are relevant to understanding its ecological characteristics and behaviour, and its range is likely to contract from its extremes in all but the north, and Phytophthora diseases may become more serious.

Sambucus nigra L.
Sambucus (Caprifoliaceae) is a genus of approximately 20 temperate and subtropical species of small trees, shrubs and herbs that are known in horticulture and two forms have repeatedly been recorded as naturalized in Britain. Expand
Nonhomoeologous translocations between group 4, 5 and 7 chromosomes within wheat and rye
SummaryGenetic maps of wheat chromosome 4A and rye chromosome arm 5RL, and the chromosomal locations of 70 sets of isozyme and molecular homoeoloci have been used to further define the structure ofExpand
Are there assembly rules for plant species abundance? An investigation in relation to soil resources and successional trends
It is concluded that resource availability had little effect on which model of community assembly fitted, however, under high phosphorus conditions the community was more spatially consistent, and there was less dominance. Expand
Relationships between soil characteristics and species richness in two botanically heterogeneous created meadows in the urban English West Midlands
Understanding the relationship between soil fertility and species richness in mesotrophic meadows is important for the conservation of species-rich grassland and particularly for habitat creation.Expand
RFLP mapping of rye chromosome 7R reveals a highly translocated chromosome relative to wheat
A comparison of the wheat and rye maps reveals that chromosome 7R contains four segments that are homologous with segments of chromosomes of four homoeologous groups of wheat including the centromere, and 2S, and the implications of rearrangements such as detected in 7R for triticale breeding and interspecific chromosome recombination and manipulation are discussed.

Discrimination between Betula pendula, Betula pubescens, and their hybrids using near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy
A methodology in which dried, milled leaves of a sample of the three taxa have been subjected to near-infrared reflectance spectroscopy at a broad range of wavelengths has yielded discriminant analysis of selected spectral wavelengths that allow correct classification of all cases. Expand
RFLP-based genetic map of the homoeologous group 3 chromosomes of wheat and rye
Analysis of the 49 loci mapped showed extreme clustering around the centromere in all four maps, with large ‘gaps’ in the distal chromosome regions, which is interpreted as being due to strong localisation of recombination towards the ends of the wheat and rye chromosomes. Expand
