Aster saxicola sp. nov. (Asteraceae, Astereae), a new species from Guizhou, China: evidence from morphological, molecular and cytological studies
The new species of Asteraceae from southeastern Guizhou province, China, is described and illustrated based on morphological, molecular and cytological data and should be considered endangered (EN) based on the IUCN red list criteria because of its restricted geographic range.
Male meiosis in 18 species of 07 genera of the tribe Astereae (Asteraceae) from Western Himalaya
Most of the populations show laggards, chromosome stickiness and cytomixis from early prophase to telophase-II, leading to the formation of aneuploid cells or meiocytes with doubled chromosome number, which produce unreduced pollen grains and adversely affect pollen viability.
Evidence of hybridization between Galatella villosa and G. linosyris, and a taxonomic reappraisal of the hybrid G. ×subvillosa
This research presents a probabilistic assessment of the phytochemical properties of EMTs and its applications in agriculture, ecology, and natural history.
Notulae to the Italian native vascular flora: 3
In this contribution, new data concerning the distribution of native vascular flora in Italy are presented. It includes new records, confirmations, exclusions, and status changes to the Italian
Notulae to the Italian alien vascular flora: 8
New data concerning the distribution of vascular flora alien to Italy are presented and nomenclature and distribution updates, published elsewhere, and corrections are provided as supplementary material.
Erigeron acris subsp. baicalensis (Asteraceae), a new combination in Asian Erigeron
Abstract Erigeron acris subsp. baicalensis (Botsch.) A. Pliszko is proposed as a new combination for Asian E. baicalensis Botsch.


A Phylogenetic Study in American Podocominae (Asteraceae: Astereae) Based on Morphological and Molecular Data
The results showed that neither the South American genera of Podocominae nor the whole subtribe Podocominee are monophyletic, and the morphological characters used to define the subtribes Podocominatione are homoplastic in the context of the present morphological and DNA sequence based phylogenetic analyses.
Molecular phylogeny of the North American eurybioid asters (Asteraceae, Astereae) based on the nuclear ribosomal internal and external transcribed spacers 1
P phylogenetic relationships within the eurybioid asters Oreostemma, Herrickia, Eurybia, and Triniteurybia form a complex that is part of the North American clade of tribe Astereae are investigated, showing poor resolution among the four genera and among the species.
Welwitschiella is a member of the African subtribe Grangeinae (Asteraceae Astereae): a new phylogenetic position based on ndhF and ITS sequence data
A phylogenetic analysis of chloroplast DNA ndhF sequence data reveals that the African genus Welwitschiella is part of tribe Astereae, and is placed in the latest diverging African clade, subtribe Grangeinae, which also includes Grangea, Psiadia, Nidorella, and the African Conyza species except C. gouani.
Phylogenetic relationships among diploid species of Symphyotrichum (Asteraceae: Astereae) based on two nuclear markers, ITS and GAPDH.
Two nuclear markers are used, the nrDNA internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and the low-copy nuclear gene glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH), to resolve intergeneric and interspecific relationships within the subtribe at the diploid level, and to determine whether the phylogenies validate the classifications of Nesom or Semple.
Phylogenetics of Darwiniothamnus (Asteraceae: Astereae) – molecular evidence for multiple origins in the endemic flora of the Galápagos Islands
The flora of Galapagos has affinities with both North America (including the Antilles) and South America, and two of the endemic genera and endemic species of three non-endemic genera have their closest relatives in South America.
Molecular evidence for the polyphyly of Olearia (Astereae: Asteraceae)
It is concluded that those species placed within the second primary clade of Olearia should be removed from the genus, but the extent to which species place within the firstPrimary clade constitute a monophyletic group can only be resolved with further sequence data.
Chloroplast DNA phylogeny, reticulate evolution, and biogeography of Paeonia (Paeoniaceae).
A refined hypothesis of species phylogeny of section Paeonia was proposed by considering the discordance between the nuclear and cpDNA phylogenies to be results of hybrid speciation followed by inheritance of cpDNA of one parent and fixation of ITS sequences of another parent.
Phylogenetic position of Mediterranean Astereae and character evolution of daisies (Bellis, Asteraceae) inferred from nrDNA ITS sequences.
Character evolution reconstructions allow a putative ancestor of the genus Bellis (proto-Bellis) to be described and suggest an early diversification in the western Mediterranean Basin of two monophyletic lineages, Bellis and Bellium.
Molecular phylogenetics of Diseae (Orchidaceae): a contribution from nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences.
The first molecular phylogeny of tribe Diseae (Orchidoideae: Orchidaceae) is presented, with Morphological characters fully congruent with the well-supported groups identified in the ITS phylogeny.
Evolution of St Helena arborescent Astereae (Asteraceae): relationships of the genera Commidendrum and Melanodendron
The evolution and adaptive radiation of these rare and threatened species are discussed with particular reference to the possible role of heterochrony.
