Fritillaria sect. Petilium (Fritillaria L., Liliaceae), consists of four species: F.chitralensis, F. eduardii, F. imperialis and F. raddeana. We studied their phylogenetic relationships with AFLP’s, crossing experiments and morphological observations. The AFLP data confirm that F. eduardii is a separate species and not a variety of F. imperialis. Within F. eduardii the two earlier distinguished varieties can indeed be recognised. Our AFLP results also show that F. chitralensis, originally…

Phylogenetic analysis of Fritillaria cirrhosa D. Don and its closely related species based on complete chloroplast genomes
Overall, this study indicated that the complete chloroplast genome sequence was an efficient tool for identifying species in taxonomically complex groups and exploring their phylogenetic relationships.
Evolution of Bird and Insect Flower Traits in Fritillaria L. (Liliaceae)
This analysis serves as a starting point for future work exploring the genetic and physiological mechanisms controlling flower traits in the genus Fritillaria, showing a broad study of flower traits among closely related species in the context of pollinator shift.
Genetic diversity, population structure, and evolutionary relationships within a taxonomically complex group revealed by AFLP markers: A case study on Fritillaria cirrhosa D. Don and closely related species
This study used amplified fragment-length polymorphism markers to assess genetic diversity, population structures, and evolutionary relationships of F. cirrhosa and closely related species and found that widely distributed species generally showed higher genetic diversity than more endemic species.
Iran supports a great share of biodiversity and floristic endemism for Fritillaria spp. (Liliaceae): A review
The objective is to facilitate increased understanding of the geographic, taxonomic, cytogenetic and phylogenetic status of Iranian Fritillaria, which is vital to meeting the goal of sustainable conservation of the genus in Iran and neighboring areas.
Molecular markers provide evidence for a broad-fronted recolonisation of the widespread calcareous grassland species Sanguisorba minor from southern and cryptic northern refugia.
This study analysed the glacial and post-glacial history of Sanguisorba minor, a typical plant species frequently occurring in calcareous grasslands across Europe, and revealed significant differences in the level of genetic variation and the occurrence of rare fragments within populations of S. minor.
Towards preserving threatened grassland plant species and habitats - seed longevity, seed viability and phylogeography
The aim of this thesis was to elucidate the origins of rare and threatened calcareous grasslands species and to provide tools for a successful conservation of biodiversity via seeds by comprising various aspects, which range from phylogeographic research to seed science.
Genotypová variabilita a příbuznost vybraných taxonů polyploidních komplexů Allium sekce Codonoprasum
Sekce Codonoprasum představuje v ramci rodu Allium jednu z taxonomicky nejkomplikovanějsich sekci. Jedna se o skupinu geofytnich rostlin, jež svým rozsiřenim zasahuje od Středozemniho moře po Kavkaz


The nomenclatural history of Fritillaria eduardii and the correct names of its varieties
Morphological observations and crossing experiments have established that both varieties of material of a new fritillary do not belong to F. imperialis and should be accommodated in F. eduardii.
Evaluation of the genetic relationship between Fritillaria species from Turkey's flora using fluorescent-based AFLP
This analysis presented the feasibility of using AFLP for a genetic relationship analysis of Fritillaria and generated a high polymorphic band profile, which could facilitate achieving a deeper understanding of genetic relationships between the species.
Cultivating Fritillaria eduardii
Soon after its discovery in 1884, F. eduardii was relegated to being a synonym of F. imperialis, crown imperial, a species to which it is closely allied. However, it differs from crown imperial by
Molecular phylogenetic evidence for the monophyly of Fritillaria and Lilium (Liliaceae; Liliales) and the infrageneric classification of Fritillaria.
P phylogenetic analyses of 37 taxa of Fritillaria (Liliaceae), 15 species of Lilium, and several outgroup taxa from Liliaceae s.s. to investigate the generic delimitation of Fritchillaria in relation to Lilium as well as infrageneric relationships within Fritilaria support the new classification of Friticalia proposed by Rix.
Assessment of genetic diversity and structure of Imperial Crown (Fritillaria imperialis L.) populations in the Zagros region of Iran using AFLP, ISSR and RAPD markers and implications for its conservation
The results indicate that the conservation of existing natural population of F. imperialis is necessary by the development of different management practices such as: maintaining effective population sizes, construction of an in situ conservation area, ex situ conservation of seed and domestication of this wild plant species.
Punctuated genome size evolution in Liliaceae
It is considered that the large genome sizes of Liliaceae may have emerged passively rather than being driven primarily by selection.
Identification of the volatile component(s) causing the characteristic foxy odor in various cultivars of Fritillaria imperialis L. (Liliaceae).
To identify the component(s) causing the foxy odor, characteristic for some Fritillaria imperialis cultivars, the headspace of flower bulbs was analyzed using gas chromatography-olfactometry (GC-O)
Microprep protocol for extraction of DNA from tomato and other herbaceous plants
This work has developed a procedure in their laboratory that maximizes the number of plant samples one person can extract and that yields sufficient DNA for 50 to 100 PCR reactions or two to four Southern blots, reducing the need for large amounts of greenhouse space.
AFLP: a new technique for DNA fingerprinting.
The AFLP technique provides a novel and very powerful DNA fingerprinting technique for DNAs of any origin or complexity that allows the specific co-amplification of high numbers of restriction fragments.
