Mahonia vs. Berberis Unloaded: Generic Delimitation and Infrafamilial Classification of Berberidaceae Based on Plastid Phylogenomics
Comparison of plastome structures across Berberidaceae confirms inverted repeat expansion in the tribe Berberideae and reveals substantial length variation in accD gene caused by repeated sequences in Berberidoideae.
Five new synonyms in Epimedium (Berberidaceae) from China
Five new synonyms in Chinese Epimedium are designated in the present paper.
Epimedium acuminatum and Allied Chinese Species (Berberidaceae)
Study of taxa of Epimedium in cultivation and grown under the same conditions has made evident that species distinguishable in herbarium material by apparently slight diagnostic characters usually have associated with these a number of differences, such as habit of growth, texture and shade of green of leaflets and poise.
Epimedium dolichostemon (Berberidaceae) and other Chinese species of Epimedium
A new Chinese species, Epimedium dolichostemon, close to E.fargesii Franchet is described and an English translation of the key is provided and descriptions of new Chinesespecies published in Chinese by T. S. Ying in 1975.
Systematic validation of medicinally important genus Epimedium species based on microsatellite markers
It has been concluded that medicinally important species of the genus Epimedium possesses sufficient genetic variation for effective resolution of the existing taxonomic problems in combination of morphological markers.
The Epimedium wushanense (Berberidaceae) species complex, with one new species from Sichuan, China
Epimedium wushanense (Berberidaceae) as treated in the Flora of China includes four species similar in leaflet shape: E. wushanense , E. ilicifolium , E. jinchengshanense (sp. nov.), and E.
The complete chloroplast genome of Epimedium platypetalum K. Mey. (Berberidaceae), a rare plant species from China
The complete chloroplast genome of Epimedium platypetalum was assembled and Phylogenetic results revealed that E. platypentalum formed a sister relationship with E. membranaceum K. Mey.
Diversity of petals in Berberidaceae: development, micromorphology, and structure of floral nectaries
The results indicate that no common petal-stamen primordium exists, that petal development proceeds through five stages, and that the differentiation responsible for the diversity of the mature petals occurs during stage 4.
Cluster analysis of karyotype similarity coefficients in Epimedium (Berberidaceae): insights in the systematics and evolution
It can be concluded that the karyotypes between species are indeed very similar and the genome of Epimedium was conservative in evolution and the cluster analysis of karyotype similarity coefficients could provide valuable clues for the systematics and taxonomy of EpIMedium.
