ABsrRAcT. Fuchsia pachyrrhiza is described and is the type of the new section Pachyrrhiza. The species is known from only two localities along the western slope of the Peruvian Andes. Distinguishing sectional characters are the presence of a whorl of reflexed stamens, tuberous roots, alternate leaves, pollen with smooth viscin threads, and small flowers with a distinctively ridged nectary. The tuberous roots appear to be adapted for water as well as starch storage, and are most likely related… Expand

Phylogenetic relationships and biogeography of Fuchsia (Onagraceae) based on noncoding nuclear and chloroplast DNA data.
Parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses with nuclear ITS and chloroplast trnL-F and rpl16 sequence data for 37 taxa representing all sections of Fuchsia and four outgroup taxa support previous sectional delimitations, except for F. verrucosa, which is described here as a new section VerrucosA.

Molecular Systematics of Onagraceae: Examples from Clarkia and Fuchsia
Given the wealth of information from traditional and more recent systematic approaches, molecular phylogenetic analyses in the Onagraceae are especially applicable and justified in order to place other data bases in a more accurate or detailed phylogenetic context. Expand
DNA C‐values and chromosome numbers in Fuchsia L. (Onagraceae) species and artificial hybrids
The four polyploidy species had considerably lower 1Cx‐values than most of the diploid species and the nuclear DNA content of the hybrids was, as expected, intermediate between those of the parental species. Expand
Effect of water increment on phenology , productivity , and herbivory of Fuchsia boliviana C . ( Onagraceae ) in Northwestern Argentina
Water availability may affect plant productivity because it limits a plant’s ability to reproduce and defend itself. In this field study, we studied the effect of water increment in relation to: a)Expand
Molecular Systematics of Plants
The chloroplast DNA restriction site variation and the evolution of the annual habit in North American Coreopsis (Asteraceae) and the suitability of molecular and morphological evidence in reconstructing plant phylogeny are examined. Expand
