The essential oil obtained by hydrodistillation from the roots of Anthriscus nemorosa (Bieb.) Sprengel (Umbelliferae) was analyzed by GC and GC-MS. Among sixty-two compounds identified (representing… Expand
Multiple glacial refugia and complex postglacial range shifts of the obligatory woodland plant Polygonatum verticillatum (Convallariaceae).
The phylogeography of typical alpine plant species is well understood in Europe. However, the genetic patterns of boreo-montane species are mostly unstudied. Therefore, we analysed the AFLPs of 198… Expand
Cytotoxic Activity of Laserpitium latifolium L. Extract and Its Daucane and Phenylpropanoid Constituents
In the search for novel cytotoxic agents, sesquiterpenoids and phenylpropanoids have provided interesting lead compounds. From the chloroform extract of the underground parts of Laserpitium… Expand
Towards resolving the systematics of Cerastium subsection Cerastium (Caryophyllaceae): a cytogenetic approach
Analyses of mitotic chromosome numbers and nuclear DNA content were performed for 39 populations of 17 perennial Cerastium taxa from south-eastern Europe. The DNA content ranged from 2C = 2.43 to… Expand
