In Poland, wild and semi­wild pear trees ( Pyrus pyraster and P. ×amphigenea ) and naturalized cultivated pear trees ( P. communis ) are an important element of the rural landscape. They are usually regarded as difficult to identify and taxonomically classify.

Figures from this paper

Genetic diversity and population structure of wild pear (Pyrus pyraster (L.) Burgsd.) in Poland
TLDR
No evidence is found to support the hypothesis about influence of interspecies hybridization with pear cultivars on the level of wild pear population diversity, and the dispersal influence of gene flow could be the reason of the disrupted relationship within populations and the low interpopulation differentiation.
Genetic diversity in local Tunisian pears (Pyrus communis L.) studied with SSR markers
TLDR
Seven SSRs derived from apple were successfully transferred to 25 local Tunisian pear genotypes and 6 common varieties of Pyrus communis cultivated in Europe indicating a high level of genetic diversity among the local Tunisiaian pear germplasm.
Self-incompatibility alleles in Polish wild pear (Pyrus pyraster (L.) Burgsd.): a preliminary analysis
TLDR
The research conducted on a limited pool of available P. pyraster alleles gives only an initial insight into possible S-RNase allele polymorphisms in wild populations, and does not confirm a strong influence of cultivated pear species on the wild pear.
Species delimitation, genetic diversity and structure of the European indigenous wild pear (Pyrus pyraster) in Saxony, Germany
TLDR
The present study investigated genetic diversity, structure and hybridization in a collection of the endangered wild pear species Pyrus pyraster (L.) Burgd, indicating a genetic exchange between the populations by pollen and seeds.
Characterization and Phylogenetic Analysis of Ancient Italian Landraces of Pear
TLDR
The network analysis of the 298 cpDNA sequences allowed two different haplogroups, Eastern and Western Eurasia, to be defined, supporting recent views of a clear division between Occidental and Oriental species.
Current Status of Knowledge and Research Perspectives in Korean Pear Genomics
TLDR
The resequencing of 'Whangkeumbae' and 'Minibae' pears has been performed using the Illumina Hiseq 2000 platform as a part of the Biogreen 21 project, offering novel, rapid methods for identification of molecular marker, such as single nucleotide polymorphisms, insertion-deletions, and simple sequence repeats, through next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology.
Morphological, anatomical and cytological characteristics of spontaneous hybrid Pyrus ×myloslavensis
TLDR
Based on pollen and seed morphology the current study confirmed a hybrid origin of the investigated taxon, and self-incompatible and cross-compatible only with one of four tested P. communis cultivars and with P. salicifolia.
An assessment of genetic variability and relationships within Asian pears based on AFLP (amplified fragment length polymorphism) markers
TLDR
The dendrogram generated from all the accessions by unweighted pair-group method of arithmetic analysis (UPGMA) cluster analysis clearly distinguished Occidental pears from accessions of East Asia.
Genetic diversity and structure of Pyrus accessions of Indian Himalayan region based on morphological and SSR markers
TLDR
Results of this study present important information about genetic structure of Indian pear accessions which can contribute significantly to future breeding and improvement programmes in this species.

Assessment of genetic relationships among Pyrus species and cultivars using AFLP and RAPD markers
TLDR
Both molecular marker techniques proved their reliability to assess genetic relationships among pear cultivars, indicating to constitute a relatively independent genetic pool, which can be of interest in pear breeding programs.
Cultivar identification and genetic fingerprinting of temperate fruit tree species using DNA markers
TLDR
The information so far published in molecular fingerprinting of temperate fruit tree species using DNA markers is analysed with the goal of obtaining a common ground that will allow an easier and faster genetic identification that, at the same time, has to be reproducible among laboratories.
Genetic characterization of pear varieties revealed by chloroplast DNA sequences
TLDR
Maternity analysis of eight pear varieties derived from interspecific crosses was conducted using the trnL-trnF sequences, showing different nucleotide sequences from their described female parents, suggesting the possibility of reverse combinations of female and male parents.
Extraction of DNA from milligram amounts of fresh, herbarium and mummified plant tissues
TLDR
Yields ranged from 0.3–200 nanograms of DNA per milligram of tissue, and in no case tested was inhibition observed for restriction enzymes BamHI or EcoRI.
Rapid isolation of high molecular weight plant DNA.
TLDR
A method is presented for the rapid isolation of high molecular weight plant DNA which is free of contaminants which interfere with complete digestion by restriction endonucleases, and which yields total cellular DNA.
