Capsicum baccatum L. has frequently been treated as two distinct species,C. microcarpum Cav. andC. pendulum Willd. A biosystematic study reveals a quantitative and qualitative basis for morphological separation ofC. baccatum into two taxa, while cytological and genetic data indicate their close similarity. A resolution of this apparent contradiction can be found in a “gigas” effect imparted to all the organ systems of cultivatedC. baccatum while the fruit has been under intense subconscious and… Expand
Genetic diversity and population structure of Capsicum baccatum genetic resources
TLDR
New insights are provided into the domestication of C. baccatum and AFLP markers are utilized to describe the species’ molecular diversity and population structure in the South American gene pool. Expand
Molecular and agronomic analysis of intraspecific variability in Capsicum baccatum var. pendulum accessions.
TLDR
Wide variability among the accessions comparing phenotypic and genotypic data and revealed distinct patterns of dissimilarity between matrices are revealed, indicating that both steps are valuable for the characterization of C. baccatum var. Expand
An Integrated Physical Map of the Cultivated Hot Chili Pepper, Capsicum baccatum var. Pendulum
TLDR
This is the first integrated physical map of C. baccatum var. Expand
Genetic diversity in Capsicum baccatum is significantly influenced by its ecogeographical distribution
TLDR
The results reported improve the understanding of the combined effects of geography, ecology and human intervention on organization of the C. baccatum genepool by providing a framework for efficient germplasm collection management and guidance for future plant acquisitions. Expand
Cytogenetical Relationships among Three Species of Chili Peppers, Capsicum chinense, C.frutescens and C.baccatum
TLDR
It can be concluded that C.baccatum and C.chinese/C.frutescens complex were originally derived from a common ancestral species monophyletically, and that their geographical distribution occurred subsequently, resulting in reproductive isolation among them. Expand
Wild Capsicum in the area of the Amboró National Park in Bolivia
Bolivia is believed to be the source of the genus Capsicum; possibly Capsicum chacoense Hunz. is the species closer to the ancestor of all Capsicum species. About ten species of wild Capsicum grow inExpand
Phylogenetic relationships, diversification and expansion of chili peppers (Capsicum, Solanaceae).
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships between nearly all taxa of Capsicum were explored to test the monophyly of the genus and to obtain a better knowledge of species relationships, diversification and expansion. Expand
Morphological and genetic relationships between wild and domesticated forms of peppers (Capsicum frutescens L. and C. chinense Jacquin).
TLDR
A significant correlation was found between morphological and molecular characterization, and the combination of the two analyses was effective in identifying and classifying the wild forms and contributing to evolutionary studies in the genus. Expand
Molecular Profiling for Genetic Variability in Capsicum Species Based on ISSR and RAPD Markers
TLDR
The floral characteristics and the molecular markers are found to be useful toward the delineation of the species specificity in Capsicum collection and identification of genetic stock. Expand
Shifts in Plant Chemical Defenses of Chile Pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) Due to Domestication in Mesoamerica
TLDR
It is demonstrated how exploring in tandem the evolutionary ecology and the ethnobotany of human-chile interactions can generate and test novel hypotheses with regard to how the domestication process shifts plant chemical defense strategies in a variety of tropical crops. Expand

A NOMENCLATURAL NOTE ON THE GENUS CAPSICUM
Capsicum pendulum Willd., a widely cultivated chili pepper of South America, is closely related to C. microcarpum Cav., as suggested by Heiser and Smith (1953). In his synopsis of the genus CapsicumExpand
A Preliminary Study of the Crossing Relationships of Capsicum baccatum
TLDR
The common bird pepper or chilipequin is a variable species ranging from the southern United States throughout Central America into Colombia and it seemed desirable that a study be undertaken to contribute to an understanding of the diverse forms of C. baccatum. Expand
The Archaeological Record of Chili Peppers ( Capsicum spp.) and the Sequence of Plant Domestication in Peru
Study of archaeological material of chili peppers (Capsicum spp.) from the sites of Huaca Prieta and Punta Grande on the coast of Peru has shown that the first species to be cultivated was C.Expand

TLDR
From the standpoint both of the limits of the species and of the names to be applied to them, the cultivated chili peppers are difficult. Expand
SYSTEMATICS AND THE ORIGIN OF CULTIVATED PLANTS
TLDR
It is surprising to learn how many of the minor cultivated plants have received virtually no attention from taxonomists, and whether Bixa orellana, which is found today as a wild plant, weed, or cultivated plant throughout the American tropics, was originally confined to either Central or South America.
