Generic phylogeny, historical biogeography and character evolution of the cosmopolitan aquatic plant family Hydrocharitaceae
BackgroundHydrocharitaceae is a fully aquatic monocot family, consists of 18 genera with approximately 120 species. The family includes both fresh and marine aquatics and exhibits great diversity in… Expand
Variation in stigma morphology – How does it contribute¶to pollination adaptation in Pedicularis (Orobanchaceae)?
Abstract. Stigma morphology in Pedicularis and its role in pollination have not been evaluated. This paper reports for the first time the relationship between stigma morphology and other aspects of… Expand
Reproductive isolation of two sympatric louseworts, Pedicularis rhinanthoides and Pedicularis longiflora (Orobanchaceae): how does the same pollinator type avoid interspecific pollen transfer?
To study the isolation mechanism of two commonly intermingled louseworts, Pedicularis rhinanthoides and Pedicularis longiflora, pollination biology in three mixed populations with the two species was… Expand
Genetic diversity and classification of Nelumbo germplasm of different origins by RAPD and ISSR analysis
In this study, RAPD and ISSR markers were used to investigate the genetic diversity and genetic relationships among different germplasm of Nelumbo including 70 Chinese ornamental cultivars, 7 wild… Expand
The presence of co-flowering species facilitates reproductive success of Pedicularis monbeigiana (Orobanchaceae) through variation in bumble-bee foraging behaviour.
Background and Aims The presence of co-flowering species can alter pollinator foraging behaviour and, in turn, positively or negatively affect the reproductive success of the focal species. Such… Expand
Genetic variation and structure in native and invasive Solidago canadensis populations
Summary Solidago canadensis is native to North America, but has become a noxious invasive plant in China. We know only a little about its invasion history and the effects of introductions on its… Expand
Chloroplast DNA Phylogeography Reveals Repeated Range Expansion in a Widespread Aquatic Herb Hippuris vulgaris in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and Adjacent Areas
Background The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is one of the most extensive habitats for alpine plants in the world. Climatic oscillations during the Quaternary ice age had a dramatic effect on species… Expand

Alismataceae is an aquatic or semi-aquatic herb family with a subcosmopolitan distribution. The family is one of the oldest lineages within monocots and plays an important role in the systematics,… Expand
Callus Induction and Plant Regeneration from In Vitro Cultured Leaves, Petioles and Scales of Lilium Leucanthum (Baker) Baker
ABSTRACT Lilium leucanthum is a high-value ornamental and medicinal plant in China. The plant has low propagation rate in nature; therefore, identification of a suitable system for in vitro… Expand
Variations of floral traits among different life forms illustrate the evolution of pollination systems in Potamogeton species from China
Abstract Four leaf morpha groups (floating-leaved, submerged broad-leaved, submerged linear-leaved and filiform-leaved) and three inflorescences type groups (erect, facultative floating and floating)… Expand
