Nine new microsatellite markers (SSR) were isolated from Salvia officinalis L. A total of 125 alleles, with 8 to 21 alleles per locus, were detected in a natural population from the east Adriatic coast. The observed heterozygosity, expected heterozygosity, and polymorphic information content ranged from 0.46 to 0.83, 0.73 to 0.93 and 0.70 to 0.92,(More)
In Lovran (coastal Croatia), a unique forest/orchard of evenly mixed grafted marrons and naturally growing nongrafted sweet chestnut trees exists. This old chestnut population has been devastated by chestnut blight, caused by an aggressive introduced pathogenic fungus, Cryphonectria parasitica. However, initial observations indicated recovery of naturally(More)
Dalmatian sage (Salvia officinalis L., Lamiaceae) is a well-known aromatic and medicinal Mediterranean plant that is native in coastal regions of the western Balkan and southern Apennine Peninsulas and is commonly cultivated worldwide. It is widely used in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Knowledge of its genetic diversity and(More)
Dalmatian pyrethrum (Tanacetum cinerariifolium Trevir./Sch./Bip.) is an outcrossing, perennial insecticidal plant, restricted to the eastern Adriatic coast (Mediterranean). Amplified fragment-length polymorphisms (AFLP) were used to investigate the genetic diversity and structure within and among 20 natural plant populations. The highest level of gene(More)
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Microsatellite markers were identified and characterized to study the genetic diversity and structure, conservation status, taxonomy, and biogeography of subspecific taxa and populations of Campanula pyramidalis (Campanulaceae). METHODS AND RESULTS Eleven microsatellite markers were developed from genomic libraries enriched for di-(More)
Gene flow, natural selection and genetic drift are processes that play a major role in shaping the genetic structure of natural populations. In addition, genetic structures of individual populations are strongly correlated with their geographical position within the species distribution area. The highest levels of genetic variation are usually found in the(More)
Twelve novel polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed for Degenia velebitica. All 12 microsatellite markers showed single-locus amplification and reveal 88 alleles in 20 individuals from a natural population. The number of alleles per microsatellite locus varied from 3 to 19. The observed heterozygosity, the expected heterozygosity, and polymorphic(More)
Background and Purpose: Contrary to a major impact of phylogenetic studies on humans and animals, application of the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) analysis in plant phylogeny research is rather sporadic due to its high rate of rearrangments and low rate of point mutations. Nevertheless, mtDNA analysis gave interesting results in some taxa. With the aim to test(More)
