A genetic linkage map of microsatellite, gene-specific and morphological markers in diploid Fragaria
The transferable nature of the markers used in this study means that the map will be ideal for use as a framework for additional marker incorporation aimed at enhancing and resolving map coverage of the diploid Fragaria genome.
The development of ISSR-derived SCAR markers around the SEASONAL FLOWERING LOCUS (SFL) in Fragaria vesca
Progress is reported towards the marker-assisted selection and positional cloning of SFL, in which three ISSR markers linked to SFL were converted to locus-specific sequence-characterized amplified region (SCAR1–SCAR3) markers to allow large-scale screening of mapping progenies.
Mutation in TERMINAL FLOWER1 Reverses the Photoperiodic Requirement for Flowering in the Wild Strawberry Fragaria vesca1[W]
It is suggested that this mechanism controls flowering within the perennial growth cycle in F. vesca and demonstrated that a change in a single gene reverses the photoperiodic requirements for flowering.
Annexins: multifunctional components of growth and adaptation.
In vitro properties of annexins and their known, dynamic distribution patterns suggest that they could be central regulators or effectors of plant growth and stress signalling, and potentially operate in signalling pathways involving cytosolic free calcium and reactive oxygen species.
An enhanced microsatellite map of diploid Fragaria
A total of 45 microsatellites (SSRs) were developed for mapping in Fragaria and will provide a useful reference framework for the development of linkage maps of the cultivated strawberry and for theDevelopment of other key resources for Fragaria such as a physical map.
Appropriate choice of antibiotic and Agrobacterium strain improves transformation of antibiotic-sensitive Fragaria vesca and F. v. semperflorens
Optimal transformation efficiency was achieved by the appropriate use of explant type and age, leaf-disc orientation, Agrobacterium density and inoculation time and phenolic compounds for bacterial virulence induction.
The regulation of seasonal flowering in the Rosaceae.
The current state of flowering research in perennial plants of the rose family (Rosaceae) is reviewed and homologues of terminal flower1 (TFL1) are revealed to be major regulators of both the juvenile to adult, and the vegetative to reproductive transitions in various rosaceous species.
UV irradiance as a major influence on growth, development and secondary products of commercial importance in Lollo Rosso lettuce ‘Revolution’ grown under polyethylene films
Abstract The growth and production of anthocyanin, flavonoid and phenolic compounds were evaluated in Lollo Rosso lettuce ‘Revolution’ grown continuously under films varying in their ability to
The control of the annual growth cycle in raspberry
The adverse and possible beneficial effects of the inclusion of these compounds in human and animal diets are reviewed together with their chemistry, biosynthesis and methods for their analysis.

In this review, flowering time is seen, as one important aspect of seasonality, from an outsider's point of view, and what is known about it in different types of plants is described.
