Late Quaternary distributional stasis in the submediterranean mountain plant Anthyllis montana L. (Fabaceae) inferred from ITS sequences and amplified fragment length polymorphism markers
Anthyllis montana is a submediterranean, herbaceous plant of the southern and central European mountains. The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions of nuclear ribosomal DNA were sequenced fromExpand

Long-distance dispersal vs vicariance: the origin and genetic diversity of alpine plants in the Spanish Sierra Nevada.
Here, we investigated the origin and genetic diversity of four alpine plant species co-occurring in the Spanish Sierra Nevada and other high mountains in south-western Europe by analysis of amplifiedExpand

Differential cycles of range contraction and expansion in European high mountain plants during the Late Quaternary: insights from Pritzelago alpina (L.) O. Kuntze (Brassicaceae)
Nuclear DNA sequence variation of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) were used to illuminate the evolutionary history of Pritzelago alpina, aExpand

An AFLP clock for the absolute dating of shallow‐time evolutionary history based on the intraspecific divergence of southwestern European alpine plant species
The dating of recent events in the history of organisms needs divergence rates based on molecular fingerprint markers. Here, we used amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs) of three distantlyExpand

The intraspecific genetic variability of siliceous and calcareous Gentiana species is shaped by contrasting demographic and re-colonization processes.
The Ciminalis section of Gentiana comprises seven species, two of them growing on siliceous substrates (G. alpina and G. acaulis), the other ones being calcareous taxa (G. clusii, G. angustifolia, G.Expand

Pollination success in monochromic yellow populations of the rewardless orchid Dactylorhiza sambucina
Dactylorhiza sambucina is a European terrestrial orchid that lacks a pollinator reward. Throughout most of its range, populations contain yellow- and purple-flowering individuals, but in westernExpand

Causes of the genetic architecture of south-west European high mountain disjuncts
Background: Postglacial climatic warming in south-western Europe and the retreat of cold-adapted species into higher elevations, starting in the Sierra Nevada and proceeding northwards to theExpand

Evidence for a vicariant origin of Macaronesian-Eritreo/Arabian disjunctions in Campylanthus Roth (Plantaginaceae).
The numerous disjunct plant distributions between Macaronesia and eastern Africa-Arabia suggest that these could be the relicts of a once continuous vegetation belt along the southern Tethys, whichExpand

Comparison of two methods characterising the seed bank of amphibious plants in submerged sediments
Abstract We analysed the submerged soil seed bank of three fishponds in the Waldviertel region in Austria. We aimed our study at comparing the efficiency of two methods in detecting seedsExpand

Seed Morphology of Nigella s.l. (Ranunculaceae): Identification, Diagnostic Traits, and Their Potential Phylogenetic Relevance
A comprehensive morphological and anatomical analysis was carried out on seeds of all 15 species currently recognized in the genus Nigella s.l. (including Komaroffia and Garidella). In addition, aExpand
