Abies ziyuanensis is a highly endangered fir species endemic to South China. Unlike other Abies species that are distributed in areas with cold climates, A. ziyuanensis is restricted to several isolated island-like localities at subtropical mountains. In this study, we used dominant amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) and co-dominant simple(More)
The cushion rockjasmine, Androsace tapete (Primulaceae), is among the angiosperms with highest altitudal distribution in the world. Cushion rockjasmine is a prominent pioneer species in alpine deserts and alpine flowstone slope habitats up to 5,300 m on Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau. In this study, we use inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers to investigate(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite markers were developed in an endangered plant, Kmeria septentrionalis, to investigate its population genetic structure, gene flow, and mating systems. METHODS AND RESULTS Using the combined biotin capture method, 14 microsatellite primer sets were isolated and characterized. All of these markers showed polymorphism, and(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite primers were developed for Parthenium hysterophorus to investigate its genetic structure and genetic diversity. METHODS AND RESULTS Using the combined biotin capture method, 15 microsatellite primer sets were isolated and characterized. All markers showed polymorphism, and the number of alleles per locus ranged from two(More)
Camellia nitidissima, a rare plant but a useful genetic resource for commercial cultivation of ornamental camellias, is distributed in a narrow region of South China and North Vietnam. In this study, RAPD and AFLP markers were used to assess the genetic diversity and population structure of six natural populations of C. nitidissima from Guangxi in South(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite markers were developed in an economically important plant, Siraitia grosvenorii, to evaluate its genetic diversity. METHODS AND RESULTS Using the combined biotin capture method, 15 microsatellite primer sets were isolated and characterized. All of these markers showed polymorphism, and the number of alleles per locus(More)
Discerning the dispersal patterns of invasive species is critically important for the design of effective management strategies and the development of appropriate theoretical models predicting the spatial expansion of introduced populations. Post-introduction dispersal may occur naturally or via human transport, but for many organisms, assessing the(More)
