Molecular evidence for adaptive radiation of Micromeria Benth. (Lamiaceae) on the Canary Islands as inferred from chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences and ISSR fingerprint data.
Understanding properly the `potential natural vegetation' concept
This is a response to critical comments concerning the inappropriate use of the potential natural vegetation (PNV) concept made in a recent contribution to the Commentary section of this journal. We…

The species of Micromeria in Tenerife constitute an inter-esting example of how species diversiﬁcation on oceanic islands can be shaped by the island’s geological history, which probably contributed to the high level of endemism on TenerIFE.
Analysis by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry of the volatiles from the fruits of Ammodaucus leucotrichus subsp. leucotrichus and subsp. nanocarpus grown in North Africa and the Canary Islands,…
Analysis by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry of the essential oils from the aerial parts of Rutheopsis herbanica (Bolle) Hans. & Kunk., gathered in Fuerteventura (Canary Islands).
Molecular phylogenetics of Micromeria (Lamiaceae) in the Canary Islands, diversification and inter-island colonization patterns inferred from nuclear genes.
Analysis by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry of the essential oil from the aerial parts of Pimpinella junoniae Ceb. & Ort., gathered in La Gomera, Canary Islands, Spain.
Species delimitation and conservation genetics of the Canarian endemic Bethencourtia (Asteraceae)
The results obtained by AMOVA, PCoA and Bayesian analysis on STRUCTURE confirmed the evidence of well-structured groups corresponding to the three species, and defined the species differentiation, perform population genetic analysis and propose conservation strategies for Bethencourtia.
Xanthoparmelia teydea, a new brown Xanthoparmelia (Parmeliaceae) from the Canary Islands
Xanthoparmelia teydea is described as new to science, found on basaltic rocks in the high mountains of the Canary Islands, in El Teide National Park (Tenerife Island).

This study test the use of retrotransposon-based molecular markers to investigate the taxonomic status of five endemic and endangered Lotus species in the Canary Islands and shows that the technique named inter-Primer Binding Site (iPBS) is a reliable molecular marker system that allows to discriminate among Lotus and has a potential value for taxonomy and conservation.
