A Three-Gene Phylogeny of the Genus Solanum (Solanaceae)
Abstract Solanum, with approximately 1,500 species, is the largest genus in the Solanaceae and includes economically important species such as the tomato, potato, and eggplant. In part due to its… Expand
Eggplant origins: out of Africa, into the orient.
The eggplant (Solanum melongena L.), also known as aubergine or brinjal, has been cultivated for centuries in the Old World and is currently a crop species of global importance. Despite this,… Expand
Zygomorphy and Heteranthery in Solanum in a Phylogenetic Context
The majority of species in the large genus Solanum (ca. 1500 species) have five-merous, radially symmetrical flowers with equal stamens. However, some Solanum species and groups are characterized by… Expand
Utility of NADP-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenase for species-level evolutionary inference in angiosperm phylogeny: a case study in Saltugilia.
NADP-dependent isocitrate dehydrogenase is a low-copy nuclear gene family. We have sequenced two regions from an idh gene (idhB) near the 3' terminal end. The first fragment encodes 4 exons and 3… Expand
Identification of rust fungi (Pucciniales) on species of Allium in Australia

- 20 September 2016
Collections of rust fungi (Pucciniales) on species of Allium in Australia have previously been identified as Puccinia allii. These identifications are unsatisfactory as P. allii is a species complex… Expand

Members of the phlox family (Polemoniaceae) serve as useful models for studying various evolutionary and biological processes. Despite its biological importance, no family-wide phylogenetic estimate… Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the Canarian Solanum vespertilio and S. lidii (Solanaceae)
The endemic and rare Solanum vespertilio and S. lidii from the Canary Islands are notable in being andromonoecious, self compatible, highly heterandrous (with short >reward= anthers and one very long… Expand
An Assessment of Heavy Ion Irradiation Mutagenesis for Reverse Genetics in Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
Reverse genetic techniques harnessing mutational approaches are powerful tools that can provide substantial insight into gene function in plants. However, as compared to diploid species, reverse… Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships in Solanum Section Androceras (Solanaceae)
Abstract The Leptostemonum clade of Solanum contains approximately 350–450 species, including the cultivated eggplant, S. melongena. This clade is characterized by the presence of prickles and… Expand
