We analyzed variations in chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) in the widespread herbaceous species Hosta sieboldiana and Hosta albomarginata across large portions of their geographic ranges in the Japanese archipelago. Our objective was to compare the phylogeographic histories and phylogeographic structures of the two congeneric species in the Japanese archipelago. The location of the study is Japanese archipelago. We sequenced 1380 bp of noncoding cpDNA from 45 populations of H. sieboldiana (n = 362) and…

Estimation of Phylogeny of Nineteen Sedoideae Species Cultivated in Korea Inferred from Chloroplast DNA Analysis

Using cpDNA sequence analysis, Sedoideae plants cultivated in Korea were successfully discriminated from each other, even at the intraspecific level, and the results were reflective of the morphological and biogeographical characteristics.

Biogeography of amphi-adriatic Gentianella crispata (Gentianaceae): a northern refugium and recent trans-adriatic migration

Abstract The Balkan Peninsula as one of Europe’s biodiversity hotspots came into the focus of biogeographic research during the last decade, but the phylogeography of its mountain flora still remains

Appearance of the non-indigenous mtDNA haplotypes of Rhynchocypris lagowskii in Tohoku, Japan

The most parsimonious network of mtDNA haplotype of aburahaya 19 localities, estimated using the TCS algorithm showed three geographical groups, which indicated genetic structure within these populations was hampered by complexity or lack of morphological diversity.

Origins of Hosta Cultivars Based on Sequence Variations in Chloroplast DNA

The sequence variations in chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) for 31 Hosta cultivars, which may have been derived from Hosta sieboldiana and H. albomarginata in Japan, were analyzed to elucidate the population origins ofhosts in their native habitats.

Long-term persisting hybrid swarm and geographic difference in hybridization pattern: genetic consequences of secondary contact between two Vincetoxicum species (Apocynaceae–Asclepiadoideae)

It is demonstrated that climatic oscillations during the Quaternary period likely led to species range shift and subsequently secondary contact and differences in the genetic consequences of secondary contact are caused by historical colonization processes and/or natural selection.



Refugia of Potentilla matsumurae (Rosaceae) located at high mountains in the Japanese archipelago

The results suggest that mountains in central Honshu served as refugia during the Quaternary climatic oscillation, although the results could not reveal the history of most mountains in the Tohoku region and Hokkaido.

Disjunct distribution of chloroplast DNA haplotypes in the understory perennial Veratrum album ssp. oxysepalum (Melanthiaceae) in Japan as a result of ancient introgression.

• The Quaternary climatic changes resulted in range shifts of species, providing chances for hybridization. However, the genetic signatures of such ancient introgression have rarely been reported. To

Comparative phylogeography of two closely related Viola species occurring in contrasting habitats in the Japanese archipelago

These findings suggest that V. eizanensis had been isolated in two large glacial refugia, whereas populations of V. chaerophylloides var.

Phylogeography and genetic diversity of East Asian Neolitsea sericea (Lauraceae) based on variations in chloroplast DNA sequences

In an attempt to reconstruct the phylogeographic history of N. sericea during the Quaternary, chloroplast DNA haplotypes of 287 individuals from 33 populations were identified covering almost all of its geographic range.

Phylogeography of Arcterica nana (Ericaceae) suggests another range expansion history of Japanese alpine plants

A phylogeographic study on the alpine plant Arcterica nana reveals that haplotypes in central Honshu are differentiated from those in more northern regions, suggesting that the history of Japanese alpine flora may include at least two different geographic radiation patterns.

Phylogeography of Stachyurus praecox (Stachyuraceae) in the Japanese Archipelago based on chloroplast DNA haplotypes

The apparent phylogeographical structure of chloroplast DNA haplotypes within Stachyurus praecox was interpreted to be the result of distribution changes effected by climatic oscillations from the late glacial period to the present.

Population genetic structure, phylogeography, and demographic history of Platycrater arguta (Hydrangeaceae) endemic to East China and South Japan, inferred from chloroplast DNA sequence variation.

A survey of chloroplast DNA sequence variation within and among twelve populations representing the overall distributional range of the Sino-Japanese floristic region endorsed the recognition of two 'evolutionarily significant units' within P. arguta, corresponding to var.

Chloroplast DNA phylogeography of Betula maximowicziana, a long-lived pioneer tree species and noble hardwood in Japan

Comparison of the patterns of genetic structure obtained from the cpDNA with previously and newly acquired data on bi-parentally inherited nuclear DNA indicates that the nuclear genome was transferred via pollen from the northern haplotypic group to the southern group more frequently than it moved in the opposite direction.

Comparative phylogeography of four component species of deciduous broad-leaved forests in Japan based on chloroplast DNA variation

A phylogeographic study of four tree species growing in Japanese deciduous broad-leaved forests based on chloroplast DNA variations found that the forests in eastern Japan separately expanded from each of the refugia along the Sea of Japan-side or along the Pacific Ocean-side, and those in southwestern Japan retreated and moved to high altitudes from Each of the continuous forests.

Consistent geographic structure among multiple nuclear sequences and cpDNA polymorphisms of Cardamine nipponica Franch. et Savat. (Brassicaceae)

The consistent history among loci and a more detailed history from several loci indicated that cpDNA can represent the history of vicariance and demonstrated the efficiency of single‐copy nuclear genes in phylogeography.
