BACKGROUND AND AIMS A detailed knowledge of cytotype distribution can provide important insights into the evolutionary history of polyploid systems. This study aims to explore the spatial distribution of different cytotypes in Pilosella echioides at various spatial scales (from the whole distributional range to the population level) and to outline possible(More)
Chromosome numbers and /or ploidy levels are reported for 44 species and subspecies ofHieracium s.str. from the following European countries: Andorra, Austria, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Italy, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and Ukraine. The chromosome numbers/DNA ploidy levels ofH. bocconei (2n ∼ 4x),H.(More)
Hieracium nigrescens subsp. brachytrichellum Zahn, known to date only from the Southern Carpathians, was discovered in the Vranica Mountains in Bosnia. This is the first station of H. nigrescens s.l., an arctic-alpine species of H. sect. Alpina (Griseb.) Gremli, on the Balkan Peninsula. A map of general distribution of H. nigrescens s.l. and illustration of(More)
Members of the genera Hieracium and Pilosella are model plants that are used to study the mechanisms of apomixis. In order to have a proper understanding of apomixis, knowledge about the relationship between the maternal tissue and the gametophyte is needed. In the genus Pilosella, previous authors have described the specific process of the “liquefaction”(More)
Galium cracoviense is a narrow endemic diploid species with a highly restricted natural range of occurrence, confined to a system of limestone outcrops in an area covering ca. 25 km2 in southern Poland. It is an excellent example of a naturally very rare species which most probably has persisted in the same area since its divergence. We used the first(More)
Hieracium vierhapperi (Zahn) Szeląg, known so far only from the Alps, was discovered in the Nízke Tatry Mts in Slovakia, as a new species to the Carpathians. Diagnostic characters, illustration and distribution as well as ecology of H. vierhapperi in the Nízke Tatry Mts are given. A key to distinguish H. vierhapperi from the morphologically related species(More)
