Allozyme diversity was surveyed at 16 loci across 16 populations of the monospecific, but morphologically diverse, endemic shrub Geleznowia verrucosa Turcz. (Rutaceae). Single-locus diversity measures portrayed G. verrucosa as a genetically depauperate genus (A, 1.4; P, 29.6%), with total genetic diversity (HT, 0.304) partitioned between populations (DST, 0.175), rather than within (HS, 0.129). Some 58% of the total genetic diversity was attributable to interpopulational differences. Although… Expand
Genetic diversity within and divergence between rare and geographically widespread taxa of the Acacia acuminata Benth. (Mimosaceae) complex
TLDR
Ass associations based on genetic distance showed A. oldfieldii was highly divergent from the other taxa while including variant populations confused systematic alliances, which supports the suggestion that these may represent a series of hybridisation events between the various taxa. Expand
Morphometric Analysis of Variation in Geleznowia verrucosa Turcz. (Rutaceae)
TLDR
Univariate analyses showed the small form exhibited significantly shorter leaves, bracts and sepals than the intermediate populations and the large form as well as more rounded leaves, which supports allozyme evidence that gene flow and introgression is/has occurred within this population. Expand
Evolutionary patterns and genetic structure in localized and widespread species in the Stylidium caricifolium complex (Stylidiaceae).
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships and levels of divergence indicate that most taxa are probably relictual rather than recently evolved, and can be attributed to a range of factors associated with habitat specificity, historical and ecological processes that characterize the southwest region, and mode of origin.

GENETICS, THE PHYLOGEOGRAPHY OF D IRCA OCCIDENTALIS (THYMELAEACEAE) 1
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the East Bay population was the fi rst to diverge, followed by the North Bay, then the Salmon Creek and Peninsula populations, suggesting an intriguing natural history for D. occidentalis that is explained by the dynamic geological and climatic history of the Bay Area. Expand
Population genetics of Philotheca sporadica (Rutaceae) to advise an offset translocation program
TLDR
Impacted populations were significant for the species viability, being among the largest and most genetically diverse, although a high percentage of populations were reproductively active and not inbred, and some evidence of hybridisation was found. Expand
At the interface of phylogenetics and population genetics, the phylogeography of Dirca occidentalis (Thymelaeaceae).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses indicate that the East Bay population was the first to diverge, followed by the North Bay, then the Salmon Creek and Peninsula populations, which suggests an intriguing natural history for D. occidentalis that is explained by the dynamic geological and climatic history of the Bay Area.

How do rare Boronia species differ from their more widespread congeners
TLDR
All four species are effectively inbred; however, B. keysii and B. falcifolia had significantly (P < 0.05) higher levels of inbreeding than did B. safrolifera, indicating that inbreeding was not determined by conservation status. Expand
Patterns of morphological variation and allelic distribution across a zone of overlap between two subspecies of Geleznowia verrucosa (Rutaceae)
Patterns of morphological and allelic variation were examined between the two subspecies of Geleznowia verrucosa Turcz. (Rutaceae) and putative hybrids across a rare zone of overlap between the twoExpand
A cladistic and biogeographic analysis of Philotheca (Rutaceae) and allied genera
TLDR
Assessment of the higher-level relationships of Philotheca, Eriostemon and Crowea (to each other and to other taxa of Boronieae) was based on reappraisal, and re-analysis, of a previous phylogenetic analysis (Armstrong 1991 ). Expand
Genetic entities and hybridisation within the Acacia microbotrya species complex in Western Australia
TLDR
This study provides compelling evidence for the recognition of these four genetic clusters as distinct evolutionary entities in the A. microbotrya complex that should be treated as separate units for conservation, commercial or management purposes. Expand

TLDR
Geographical isolation, small population size, low allelic diversity, and high levels of among‐population differentiation suggest that repeated instances of founder events and genetic drift have been important in the evolution of this tropical shrub complex. Expand
Systematic and evolutionary inferences from isozyme studies in the genus Eremaea (Myrtaceae)
TLDR
Gene diversity statistics indicated that a greater proportion of genetic variability in Eremaea species was due to within- rather than among-population differences, and allozyme data supported morphological studies which indicated five species groups or complexes. Expand
Genetic Diversity and the Conservation of Eucalyptus crucis Maiden
TLDR
Analyses of allozyme data suggest that the mating system of E. crucis may be adapted to maintain diversity within populations by selection favouring heterozygous, presumably outcrossed progeny. Expand
Genetic differentiation, diversity, and inbreeding in the mountain monkeyflower (Mimulus caespitosus) of the Washington Cascades
TLDR
Gene flow is predominant along streams and a hierarchy of genetic relationships exists in Mimulus caespitosus, a stoloniferous yellow monkeyflower that grows in small, perennial mountain streams. Expand
Genetic diversity and the insular population structure of the rare granite rock species, Eucalyptus caesia Benth
TLDR
The genetic diversity within populations of E. caesia Benth was remarkably low for a tree species but the level of population differentiation was the highest reported for any tree species. Expand
The mating system and patterns of genetic variation in Banksia cuneata A. S. George (Proteaceae)
TLDR
The mating system and patterns of genetic variation were studied in the rare and geographically restricted species Banksia cuneata and showed significantly lower levels of outcrossing in two populations than reported for other Banksia species. Expand

The cycad, Macrozamia riedlei is a significant component of the native flora of southern Western Australia. It displays evolutionary conservatism not only in terms of its primitive morphology butExpand
VARIATION OF SEX ALLOCATION AMONG EIGHT TAXA OF THE MIMULUS GUTTATUS SPECIES COMPLEX (SCROPHULARIACEAE)
TLDR
Stigma-anther separation and closure of stigma lobes upon touch were positively correlated with outcrossing ratios, P/O ratios, and male allocation in the Mimulus guttatus complex. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Population Genetic Structure in the Rare Chittering Grass Wattle, Acacia anomala Court
TLDR
Data support the contention that the Chittering populations are primarily outcrossing whereas the Kalamunda populations are clonal, with each population consisting of individuals with identical and, in three of the four populations, heterozygous, multilocus genotypes. Expand
Genetic consequences of a bottleneck and spatial genetic structure in the triggerplant Stylidium coroniforme (Stylidiaceae)
TLDR
It was concluded that high levels of genetic diversity in small populations are typical of S. coroniforme, which is relatively short lived, disturbance-adapted and has population systems which probably undergo frequent bottleneck-flush cycles. Expand
