Comparative analysis of a large dataset indicates that internal transcribed spacer (ITS) should be incorporated into the core barcode for seed plants

It is proposed that ITS/ITS2 should be incorporated into the core barcode for seed plants, because in cases where it is difficult to amplify and directly sequence ITS in its entirety, just using ITS2 is a useful backup because it is easier to amplified and sequence this subset of the marker.
Phylogeographic studies of plants in China: Advances in the past and directions in the future
- Jianquan Liu, Yongshuai Sun, X. Ge, L. Gao, Y. Qiu
- 1 July 2012
It is advocated that phylogeographic studies of plants in China should be directed to the closely related species or a monophyletic group in the coming years; and population genetic data based on direct sequencing multiple loci, especially those from nuclear genome and statistical tests should be widely adopted and enforced.
SSR and AFLP Markers Reveal Low Genetic Diversity in the Biofuel Plant Jatropha curcas in China

- 1 September 2008
The clustering of genotypes based on the AFLP markers shows that the genetic diversity of J. curcas in Guizhou was notably different from the other samples, and this collection has not been characterized using molecular techniques associated with germplasm management and utilization.
Glacial survival east and west of the 'Mekong-Salween Divide' in the Himalaya-Hengduan Mountains region as revealed by AFLPs and cpDNA sequence variation in Sinopodophyllum hexandrum (Berberidaceae).

Phylogenetic and functional alpha and beta diversity in temperate and tropical tree communities
- N. Swenson, D. Erickson, W. Kress
- Environmental Science
- 1 August 2012
The results show that abiotic filtering plays a role in structuring local assemblages and governing spatial turnover in community composition and that phylogenetic measures of alpha and beta diversity are not strong predictors of functional alpha and Beta diversity in the forests studied.
Genetic uniformity of Alternanthera philoxeroides in South China
The results are in accordance with the assumption that populations in South China are genetically depauperate because of the short introduction history and the partially clonal propagation of this weed.
Strong genetic differentiation of the East-Himalayan Megacodon stylophorus (Gentianaceae) detected by Inter-Simple Sequence Repeats (ISSR)

The observed genetic structure of the populations implies that as many populations as possible should be considered for any in situ and ex situ conservation practice on this species.
Genetic diversity and geographic differentiation in endangered Ammopiptanthus (Leguminosae) populations in desert regions of northwest China as revealed by ISSR analysis.

The significant genetic difference between the two species might be due to a possible vicariant evolutionary event from a single common ancestor through the fragmentation of their common ancestor's range.
