Engineered DNA polymerase improves PCR results for plastid DNA1
TLDR
A DNA polymerase that is tolerant to inhibitors improves PCR results, and PCR products and high-quality sequence data were obtained for 96% of samples for rbcL and 79% for matK, compared to 29% and 21% with regular Taq polymerase. Expand
DNA BARCODING AS A MEANS FOR IDENTIFYING MEDICINAL PLANTS OF PAKISTAN
TLDR
DNA barcoding is being used to identify several medicinal plants found in Pakistan and distinguished them from other similar species. Expand
Floral development of Cardiopteris, with emphasis on gynoecial structure and ovular morphology
TLDR
The floral development of Cardiopteris is studied to clarify floral morphology and document floral development, including the ategmic orthotropous ovule, which is unusual incardiopteridaceae and is an apomorphy of Cardypteris. Expand
Character evolution and missing (morphological) data across Asteridae.
TLDR
The analyses presented here provide a greatly improved understanding of character evolution across Asteridae, highlighting multiple characters potentially synapomorphic for major clades. Expand
Pollen diversity in Aquifoliales
TLDR
To assess diversity in the order, pollen from 19 genera was examined with light and scanning electron microscopy and specimens of Gomphandra from continental Asia exhibited seven different pollen morphologies, suggesting that exine patterns may be useful for the recognition of species in that region. Expand
Crop wild relatives of the United States require urgent conservation action
TLDR
It is found that more than one-half of the species may be endangered in their natural habitats, and that the great majority require further conservation action, both ex situ ( in gene banks and botanical gardens) and in situ (in protected areas). Expand
Stemonurus corrugatus (Stemonuraceae, Icacinaceae s.l.) a new species from Sarawak
TLDR
The new species is similar to S. grandifolius, S. scorpioides, and S. umbellatus, and morphological differences among the taxa are discussed. Expand
Three new species and a new name in Southeast Asian Gomphandra (Stemonuraceae / Icacinaceae s.l.)
Three new species of Gomphandra (Stemonuraceae / Icacinaceae s.l.) are described from Malesia, and a new name is proposed for a misidentified species. Gomphandra palustris is known from peat swampExpand
Six new species and a new subspecies of Gomphandra (Stemonuraceae) from the Philippines
TLDR
Six new species of Gomphandra (Stemonuraceae) are described from the Philippines, with distribution maps and preliminary conservation statuses provided for each taxon. Expand
