Inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) diversity within Monarda fistulosa var. brevis (Lamiaceae) and divergence between var. brevis and var. fistulosa in West Virginia

  title={Inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) diversity within Monarda fistulosa var. brevis (Lamiaceae) and divergence between var. brevis and var. fistulosa in West Virginia},
  author={Rebecca T. Kimball and Daniel J. Crawford and Jessica R. Page and P. J. Harmon},
Inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) banding patterns were used to examine genetic diversity within and among populations ofMonarda fistulosa var.brevis, a rare taxon restricted to several populations in limestone glades and barrens in eastern West Virginia and Virginia. More than 34% of the total ISSR diversity in var.brevis occurred among populations, which is high when compared to the few other rare species that have been examined for ISSR variation. Prior studies demonstrated that var.brevis… 
A new beebalm, Monarda austroappalachiana (Lamiaceae), from the Southern Appalachians
The novel species M. austroappalachiana, endemic to the Southern Appalachians, is described and illustrated and is more similar to M. fistulosa than M. clinopodia in morphology and habitat.
Xeric limestone prairies of eastern United States: Review and synthesis
Xeric limestone prairies (XLPs) are open, nonforested areas in which herbaceous plant communities occur on shallow, rocky soils derived from calcareous substrates. These grasslands are characterized
Calcareous rock outcrop vegetation of eastern North America (exclusive of the Nashville Basin), with particular reference to use of the term “cedar glades”
The term “cedar glades” has been applied to several different types of plant communities that occur on rocky calcareous soils in eastern North America. A previous paper by the first two authors
High genetic diversity detected in the endemic Primula apennina Widmer (Primulaceae) using ISSR fingerprinting
Analysis of genetic diversity within and among six populations representative of the species distribution range revealed a weak but significant spatial genetic structure in P. apennina, with gene flow acting as a homogenizing force that prevents a stronger differentiation of populations.
One chemistry, two continents: Function and maintenance of chemical polymorphism in the mint family (Lamiaceae)
Genetic relationships among South American species of Cunila D. Royen ex L. based on ISSR
Among South American species two clusters emerge, one consisting of shrubs and the second by subshrubs species, which refines the botanical taxonomy for several species of the genus.


Clonal diversity in the rare Calamagrostis porteri ssp. insperata (Poaceae): comparative results for allozymes and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and intersimple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers
Four populations of the rare, highly clonal grass Calamagrostis porteri ssp. insperata were examined using allozymes and the two polymerase chain reaction (PCR)‐based markers, random amplified
RAPD Marker Variation in Eriastrum densifolium (Polemoniaceae): Implications for Subspecific Delimitation and Conservation
Geographic variation in different Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA markers is discordant, and the resulting pattern suggests a continuum of neutral genetic marker variation in Eriastrum densifolium, with no intraspecific taxa evident.
The distribution of random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) diversity amongst populations of Isotoma petraea (Lobeliaceae)
Non‐metric multidimensional scaling (nMDS) analysis of the random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) data set clearly resolved all populations and found there was little diversity in highly autogamous populations, but levels were higher in the outbred Yackeyackine population.
RAPD marker diversity within and divergence among species of Dendroseris (Asteraceae: Lactuceae).
Dendroseris represents an example where RAPD markers, because of their greater variability, provide a useful alternative to allozymes for assessing diversity in rare species endemic to oceanic islands and for resolving relationships among the species.
Relationships Within and Among Species of the Holoparasitic Genus Hyobanche (Orobanchaceae) Inferred from ISSR Banding Patterns and Nucleotide Sequences
The combination of molecular, morphological, and biogeographical data suggest two alternative hypotheses: (1) that floral evolution has progressed from galeate hirsute corolla tubes to straight glabrous tubes as represented by H. glabrata and H. rubra, respectively; or (2) the intermediate floral morphology and distribution of H.glabRata reveal a hybrid origin of this species with H. Rubra as progenitors.
Genetic diversity and relationships of cacao (Theobroma cacao L.) in southern Mexico
A population of cacao found in a sinkhole in northern Yucatan with genetic affinities to populations in Chiapas suggests the Maya maintained plants far away from their native habitat, which concurs with known agroforestry practices of the Maya.
Species boundaries and interrelationships of two closely related sympatric diploid wild potato species, Solanum astleyi and S. boliviense, based on RAPDs
Phenetic analyses of the RAPD data show S. astleyi and S. boliviense to form two distinct groups and to be more similar to each other than to any of the other species investigated, suggesting that S.Astleyi or S. Bolivienses are worthy of taxonomic recognition at the subspecies, rather than species level.
Reproductive biology of Lactoris fernandeziana (Lactoridaceae).
It is concluded that Lactoris is anemophilous, a syndrome perhaps reflected by the P/O ratio, which supports selfing and implies limited distance wind pollen dispersal and low genetic diversity.
The Measurement of Species Diversity
The present contribution attempts to define in a precise, but still generalized, what is or should be meant by the many terms sur­ rounding the concept-cluster diversity.
PCR markers distinguish Plantago major subspecies
The RAPD and inter-SSR markers showed a differentiation between the two subspecies of P. major, and were discussed in relation to earlier results using allozyme electrophoresis, DNA fingerprinting, and chloroplast RFLP analysis.
