Microsatellite analysis reveals interpopulation differentiation and gene flow in the endangered tree Changiostyrax dolichocarpa (Styracaceae) with fragmented distribution in central China.
Polymorphic simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers were used to investigate the impact of habitat fragmentation on the population structure and gene flow of Changiostyrax dolichocarpa, a critically… Expand
Genetic consequence of restricted habitat and population decline in endangered Isoetes sinensis (Isoetaceae).
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Isoetes sinensis (Isoeteaceae) is a critically endangered aquatic quillwort in eastern China. Rapid decline of extant population size and local population extinction have occurred… Expand
Characterization of 14 novel microsatellite loci in the endangered Liriodendron chinense (Magnoliaceae) and cross-species amplification in closely related taxa
Fourteen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from an AC-enriched genomic library of Liriodendron chinense (Magnoliaceae). The average allele number of these… Expand
Potential Risk of Hybridization in Ex Situ Collections of Two Endangered Species of Sinojackia Hu (Styracaceae)
Spontaneous hybridization in ex situ facilities can undermine the genetic integrity of ex situ collections and potentially contaminate open-pollinated seeds or seedlings destined for the… Expand
Phylogeny of Sinojackia (Styracaceae) based on DNA sequence and microsatellite data: implications for taxonomy and conservation.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The genus Sinojackia consists of eight species, all endemic to China. All species of Sinojackia are endangered or threatened owing to poor recruitment within populations.… Expand
Characterization of microsatellite markers in the endangered Sinojackia xylocarpa (Styracaceae) and cross‐species amplification in closely related taxa
Twenty-four polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized from an AAG-enriched genomic library of Sinojackia xylocarpa. The average allele number of these microsatellites was 3.3… Expand
Molecular and quantitative trait variation within and among small fragmented populations of the endangered plant species Psilopeganum sinense.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Natural selection and genetic drift are important evolutionary forces in determining genetic and phenotypic differentiation in plant populations. The extent to which these two… Expand
Novel polymorphic microsatellite loci and patterns of pollen-mediated gene flow in an ex situ population of Eurycorymbus cavaleriei (Sapindaceae) as revealed by categorical paternity analysis
Understanding the patterns of contemporary, pollen-mediated gene flow is of great importance for designing appropriate conservation strategies. In this study, ten novel polymorphic microsatellite… Expand
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in Psilopeganum sinense Hemsl (Rutaceae), an endangered herb endemic to Yangtze River valley
Twenty‐nine primer pairs flanking microsatellite repeats were designed from an AC‐enriched genomic library of Psilopeganum sinense and tested using 24 individuals derived from a natural population. A… Expand
High genetic diversity in remnant natural populations of Myricaria laxiflora, a species once considered to be extinct in the wild
a b s t r a c t Myricaria laxiflora was once considered to be restricted to the Three Gorges Reservoir Area (TGRA), China, and was thought to be the only species to become extinct due to the… Expand
