Abstract.To investigate phylogenetic and biogeographic relationships all species of Digitalis and Isoplexis and one species of the outgroup genera Antirrhinum and Globularia each were analyzed using nuclear ITS and plastid trnL-F sequences. Phylogenetic trees resulting from separate analyses were highly congruent. Combined analysis revealed two major lineages, which mark an early split in the genus Digitalis. While sections Digitalis, Frutescentes and Globiflorae appear monophyletic, sect… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of morphological characters in Ononis L. (Fabaceae)
TLDR
An examination of the life strategies dominant in different clades and the climatic conditions in the habitats of the species in the light of the molecular data suggests that O. Ononis, Mauritanicae and Canariensis are secondarily perennial, with the latter two serving as examples of high altitude woodiness and insular woodiness. Expand
Phylogenetic Reconstruction Among Species of Chiritopsis and Chirita Sect. Gibbosaccus (Gesneriaceae) Based on nrDNA Its and cpDNA trnl-F Sequences
TLDR
The present analyses indicate that nomenclatural changes will be needed to reflect more accurately relationships in the Gibbosaccus-Chiritopsis complex and reconsider the morphological evolution and adaptation between and within the two genera. Expand
Molecular evidence for adaptive radiation of Micromeria Benth. (Lamiaceae) on the Canary Islands as inferred from chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences and ISSR fingerprint data.
TLDR
This work investigated the diversification of Micromeria on the Canary Islands and Madeira at the inter- and infraspecific level using inter simple sequence repeat PCR (ISSR), the trnK-Intron and the trNT-trnL-spacer of the cpDNA and a low copy nuclear gene. Expand
Chemical and phylogenetic relationships among Aristolochia L. (Aristolochiaceae) from southeastern Brazil
TLDR
It is found that Aristolochia is a monophyletic genus and species considered to be derived contain labdanoic acids (LAs) in their leaves. Expand
The molecular phylogeny of Matthiola R. Br. (Brassicaceae) inferred from ITS sequences, with special emphasis on the Macaronesian endemics.
TLDR
The phylogeny of Matthiola supports independent founder events from the same mainland congener to either island, and the consistently derived position of the Moroccan populations within a mostly Canarian clade suggests a further back-colonization of the continent. Expand
Molecular systematics of Descurainia (Brassicaceae) in the Canary Islands: Biogeographic and taxonomic implications
TLDR
A molecular-based phylogeny of Canarian Descurainia was constructed using DNA sequences from nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and seven non-coding chloroplast regions and chloroplast data suggest that both intra-island adaptive radiation and inter-islands colonization have played a prominent role in the evolution of DesCurainia in the Canary Islands. Expand
Polyphyly of the genus Micromeria (Lamiaceae)-evidence from cpDNA sequence data
TLDR
Based on the phylogenetic reconstructions there is evidence that the genus as currently circumscribed is polyphyletic, outlining the necessity of removing section Pseudomelissa from Micromeria. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Menthinae (Lamiaceae, Nepetoideae, Mentheae)--Taxonomy, biogeography and conflicts.
TLDR
All data sets suggest a monophyly of the New World taxa and argue for long distance dispersal from the Old World, rather than a vicariance explanation. Expand
Phylogenetic reconstruction of Chirita and allies (Gesneriaceae) with taxonomic treatments
TLDR
The morphological evolution of Chirita was analyzed and a series of morphological synapomorphies for the monophyletic groups revealed herein were identified to provide a taxonomic treatment in this study. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of Alchemilla, Aphanes and Lachemilla (Rosaceae) inferred from plastid and nuclear intron and spacer DNA sequences, with comments on generic classification.
TLDR
It is argued for a wider circumscription of the genus Alchemilla, including Lachemilla and Aphanes, based on the morphology and the phylogenetic relationships between the different clades. Expand

CONSERVATION STATUS AND PRELIMINAR RESULTS ON THE PHYLOGENETICS OF ISOPLEXIS (LINDL.) BENTH. (SCROPHULARIACEAE) AN ENDEMIC MACARONESIAN GENUS
TLDR
Isoplexis is shown to be a recent derivative taxon from Digitalis, the first cladistic view of relationships among taxa of the tribe Digitaleae, and sceptrum has been found to be more widespread than previously believed. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of Nepenthaceae Based on Cladistic Analysis of Plastid trnK Intron Sequence Data
TLDR
The recent disjunct distribution of Nepenthes is interpreted as a result of an incisive extinction of progenitors, a process of migration and a subsequent diversification on the islands of Borneo, Sumatra, Sulawesi and New Guinea, indicating that colonization of SE Asia started from an ancient Indian stock. Expand
Molecular evidence for a Mediterranean origin of the Macaronesian endemic genus Argyranthemum (Asteraceae).
TLDR
A combined analysis of ITS sequences and cpDNA restriction sites indicates that Argyranthemum is sister to the other three genera of Chrysantheminae, and restriction site analyses of the entire chloroplast genome remain a valuable approach for studying recently derived island plants. Expand
Chloroplast DNA evidence of colonization, adaptive radiation, and hybridization in the evolution of the Macaronesian flora.
TLDR
The patterns of phylogenetic relationships in Argyranthemum indicate that interisland colonization between similar ecological zones is the main mechanism for establishing founder populations, combined with rapid radiation into distinct ecological zones and interspecific hybridization is the primary explanation for species diversification. Expand
Island colonization and evolution of the insular woody habit in Echium L. (Boraginaceae).
TLDR
It is argued that the origin of insular woodiness involved response to counter-selection of inbreeding depression in founding island colonies, and was furthermore accompanied by intense speciation, which brought forth remarkable diversity of forms among contemporary island endemics. Expand
An assessment of genetic relationships within the genus Digitalis based on PCR-generated RAPD markers
TLDR
This is the first known report of the application of RAPD markers for the study of genetic relationships among species of the genus Digitalis and the species relationships revealed were fully consistent with those previously obtained using morphological affinities. Expand
The Macaronesian bird-flower element and its relation to bird and bee opportunists
TLDR
This study gives the first report of birds visiting and thus pollinating these species, including Canarina canadensis, three Isoplexis species and Lotus berthelotii. Expand
Ornithophilie auf den Canarischen Inseln
TLDR
The ability of unspecialized birds to acquire nectardrinking spontaneously and to pass this habit on to their offspring, is demonstrated by a population of Tree Sparrows which have visited ornithophilousKniphofia (Liliaceae) in Berlin for several years. Expand
Disintegration of the scrophulariaceae.
TLDR
A molecular systematic study of Scrophulariaceae sensu lato using DNA sequences of three plastid genes revealed at least five distinct monophyletic groups, which are newly erected herein to recognize the phylogenetic distinctiveness of tribe Calceolarieae. Expand
Amplification and direct sequencing of fungal ribosomal RNA genes for phylogenetics
TLDR
The nuclear small-subunit rDNA sequences (16S-like) evolve rela­ tively slowly and are useful for studying distantly related organisms, whereas the mitochondrial rRNA genes evolve more rapidly and can be useful at the ordinal or family level. Expand
