An ITS phylogeny of tribe Senecioneae (Asteraceae) and a new delimitation of Senecio L.
Senecioneae is the largest tribe ofAsteraceae, comprised ofca. 150 genera and 3,000 species. Approximately one-third of its species are placed in Senecio, making it one of the largest genera ofExpand

Patterns and causes of incongruence between plastid and nuclear Senecioneae (Asteraceae) phylogenies.
One of the longstanding questions in phylogenetic systematics is how to address incongruence among phylogenies obtained from multiple markers and how to determine the causes. This study presents aExpand

Frequent gain and loss of pyrrolizidine alkaloids in the evolution of Senecio section Jacobaea (Asteraceae).
Pyrrolizidine alkaloids (PAs) of the macrocyclic senecionine type are secondary metabolites characteristic for most species of the genus Senecio (Asteraceae). These PAs are deterrent and toxic toExpand

The significance of apomixis in the evolution of the angiosperms: a reappraisal
Apomixis, the ability to produce asexual seeds, constitutes, along with outcrossing and selfing, one of the three major breeding systems in the angiosperms. However, apomixis is by far the leastExpand
