Chloroplast DNA variation in European white oaks phylogeography and patterns of diversity based on data from over 2600 populations
A consortium of 16 laboratories have studied chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) variation in European white oaks. A common strategy for molecular screening, based on restriction analysis of four PCR-amplifiedExpand

Identification of refugia and post-glacial colonisation routes of European white oaks based on chloroplast DNA and fossil pollen evidence
Abstract The geographic distribution throughout Europe of each of 32 chloroplast DNA variants belonging to eight white oak species sampled from 2613 populations is presented. Clear-cut geographicExpand

Evidence for hybridization and introgression within a species-rich oak (Quercus spp.) community
BackgroundAnalysis of interspecific gene flow is crucial for the understanding of speciation processes and maintenance of species integrity. Oaks (genus Quercus, Fagaceae) are among the model speciesExpand

Leaf morphological differentiation between Quercus robur and Quercus petraea is stable across western European mixed oak stands
Leaf morphology was assessed in nine mixed oak stands (Quercus petraea and Q. robur) located in eight European countries. Exhaustive sampling was used in an area of each stand where the two speciesExpand

Uses, traditional management, perception of variation and preferences in ackee (Blighia sapida K.D. Koenig) fruit traits in Benin: implications for domestication and conservation
BackgroundBlighia sapida is a woody perennial multipurpose fruit tree species native to the Guinean forests of West Africa. The fleshy arils of the ripened fruits are edible. Seeds and capsules ofExpand

Genetic variation and differentiation within a natural community of five oak species (Quercus spp.).
Chloroplast DNA and two categories of nuclear markers - isozymes and microsatellites - were used to examine a very rich natural community of oaks (Quercus spp.) situated in west-central Romania. TheExpand

Subtle human impacts on neutral genetic diversity and spatial patterns of genetic variation in European beech (Fagus sylvatica)
Abstract We aim to understand the role of past and ongoing anthropogenic impacts on genetic variation patterns at different spatial scales for the dominant tree species European beech ( FagusExpand

Genetic structure of Araucaria angustifolia (Araucariaceae) populations in Brazil: implications for the in situ conservation of genetic resources.
The distribution of the genetic variation within and among natural populations of A. ANGUSTIFOLIA growing in different regions in Brazil was assessed at microsatellite and AFLP markers. Both markersExpand

Spatial genetic structure of Sorbus torminalis: The extent of clonal reproduction in natural stands of a rare tree species with a scattered distribution
Abstract Distinct spatial genetic structure, as the result of various evolutionary and ecological processes, is a common feature of tree populations. The rare pioneer forest tree Sorbus torminalisExpand
