Identification of the progenitors of plants endemic to oceanic islands often is complicated by extreme morphological divergence between island and continental taxa. This is especially true for the… Expand
Postfire Succession of the Herbaceous Flora in Southern California Chaparral
Postfire succesion of the temporary herbaceous and suffrutescent cover was studied after chaparral fires in San Diego County, California, USA. Four categories of species make up the temporary cover.… Expand
Isolation by landscape in populations of a prized edible mushroom Tricholoma matsutake
Tricholoma matsutake, a wild edible ectomycorrhizal mushroom, is revered for its distinguished flavor and iconic significance. Here, we test for landscape effects on T. matsutake gene flow and… Expand
Insights into the evolution of the tribe Arctoteae (Compositae: subfamily Cichorioideae s.s.) using trnL-F, ndhF, and ITS
Compositae (Asteraceae) are the largest flowering plant family (23,000 to 30,000 species) and its members are found throughout the world in both temperate and tropical habitats. The subfamilies and… Expand
Forest age correlates with fine-scale spatial structure of Matsutake mycorrhizas.
Examining the fine-scale spatial structure of fungal populations can tell us much about how individual species reproduce and disperse throughout natural landscapes. Here we study the fine-scale… Expand
Distribution of Pollen Types in Vernonia (Vernonieae: Compositae)
Vernonia is the largest genus of the tribe Vernonieae with nearly 1000 species found predominately in the New and Old World tropics. Morphological variation in vegetative features is extensive;… Expand

CLADISTICS OF THE BRYOPSIDALES: A PRELIMINARY ANALYSIS
The Bryopsidales contains some of the most species rich and ecologically dominant algae in tropical ecosystems. However, the evolutionary relationships among the 29 genera and several hundred species… Expand
