Premise of research. Determination of species boundaries is essential for understanding and preserving biological diversity, yet it remains a difficult task for many plant lineages. Population genetics approaches explicitly taking into account the geographic context of processes driving population divergence and speciation may help to identify species boundaries in complex groups. Here, we adopt this approach to investigate genetic boundaries in an endemic group of trumpet daffodils (Narcissus… Expand
Species delimitation with gene flow: A methodological comparison and population genomics approach to elucidate cryptic species boundaries in Malaysian Torrent Frogs
TLDR
Using a population genomics approach and the concept of species as separately evolving metapopulation lineages as the only necessary property of a species, this study was able to objectively elucidate cryptic species boundaries in the presence of past and present gene flow. Expand
Genetic diversity of Narcissus tortifolius, an endangered endemic species from Southeastern Spain
TLDR
The results indicate that habitat fragmentation has not caused genetic depauperation in N. tortifolius but did reveal moderate genetic differentiation, and these findings could be used to establish management guidelines for the conservation of this rare species. Expand
Using a Population Genetics Approach for a Preliminary Investigation concerning Species Boundaries in Herbertia (Iridaceae)
TLDR
The population genetic approach allowed the recognition of H. darwinii, H. pulchella, and H. quareimana as three genetically differentiated clusters despite the close genetic relationship between them despite being endemic to the Brazilian Pampa biome. Expand
Taxonomic Differentiation of Iberian Knapweeds (Centaurea sects. Jacea and Lepteranthus, Asteraceae) and Genetic Isolation of Infraspecific Floral Morphotypes1
TLDR
Investigation of the taxonomic differentiation and potential effect of genetic isolation in R and NR populations of Iberian Centaurea sects suggests that the fixation of the different morphs within the same taxon or group may be explained by geographic isolation. Expand
Population genetic structure and management perspectives for Armeria belgenciencis, a narrow endemic plant from Provence (France)
TLDR
The genetic structure supported a close relationship between A. belgenciensis and A. arenaria subsp. Expand
Integrating Multiple Lines of Evidence to Explore Intraspecific Variability in a Rare Endemic Alpine Plant and Implications for Its Conservation
TLDR
A clear pattern of genetic variation was found among populations of T. balbisiana, which clustered according to their geographic position, and there was a strong overlap in the morphological space of individuals across the species’ range, with few peripheral populations diverging in their leaf morphology. Expand
Population Genetics of Narcissus Species Reveals High Diversity and Multiple Introductions into Kashmir
TLDR
The high diversity observed in the present investigation indicates that the Narcissus species have not gone through any bottleneck due to either multiple introductions or the presence of these species from decades. Expand
The hyperdominant tropical tree Eschweilera coriacea (Lecythidaceae) shows higher genetic heterogeneity than sympatric Eschweilera species in French Guiana
TLDR
A positive trend between demographic abundance of species and allelic richness illustrates that hyperdominants may have a high evolutionary potential and can be tested using more powerful genomic data in combination with tree phenotypic trait variation and characterization of niche breadth. Expand
Species relationship and population structure analysis in Geranium subg. Robertium with the use of ISSR molecular markers
TLDR
The present study revealed that combination of morphological and ISSR data can delimit the species and revealed that the species of subg. Expand
Genetic structure of Leucojum aestivum L. in the Po Valley (N-Italy) drives conservation management actions
TLDR
The levels of population differentiation suggest that fragmentation in L. aestivum populations has occurred, but that an active gene flow between fragmented populations still exists, maintained by flooding events or pollinators, and should be considered when selecting source populations for translocation purposes.

Species delimitation under the general lineage concept: an empirical example using wild North American hops (Cannabaceae: Humulus lupulus).
TLDR
Five different species criteria are examined to ask whether the three taxonomic varieties of Humulus lupulus (hops) native to North America are distinct lineages and support recognition of vars. Expand
Insights into Neogene Mediterranean biogeography based on phylogenetic relationships of mountain and lowland lineages of Narcissus (Amaryllidaceae)
TLDR
The role of three key historical events in Narcissus diversification is pointed to: tectonic shifts of the Alboran domain in the western Mediterranean, the Messinian salinity crisis, and the onset of the Mediterranean climate followed by periods of repeated glaciation. Expand

Species delimitation is an important issue in terms of conservation priorities, especially for narrow endemics under threat of extinction. The Alpine endemics Brassica repanda subsp. glabrescens andExpand
Species Boundaries and Phylogeographic Patterns in Cryptic Taxa Inferred from AFLP Markers: Veronica subgen. Pentasepalae (Scrophulariaceae) in the Western Mediterranean
TLDR
The power of detailed AFLP study to address questions of species delimitation and genetic diversity in morphologically-cryptic plants and karyological studies to explore species boundaries in the Western Mediterranean representatives of Veronica subgen. Expand
AFLP markers provide insights into the evolutionary relationships and diversification of New Caledonian Araucaria species (Araucariaceae).
TLDR
It is shown that genetic divergence among the present New Caledonian Araucaria species is low, suggesting recent diversification rather than pre-existence on Gondwana, and hypothesize that speciation is ongoing and/or there are cryptic species in some genetically (sometimes also morphologically) divergent populations.

Testing species delimitation in sympatric species complexes: the case of an African tropical tree, Carapa spp. (Meliaceae).
TLDR
The results support the use of a population genetics approach, based on ultra-polymorphic markers, to address species delimitation within complex taxonomic groups. Expand
An exploration of species boundaries in turret-building tarantulas of the Mojave Desert (Araneae, Mygalomorphae, Theraphosidae, Aphonopelma).
TLDR
This work employed five different approaches for delimiting species in a group of closely related tarantulas from the Mojave Desert in the southwestern United States, demonstrating that the taxonomy of these spiders as presently defined underestimates actual species-level diversity and the group is in need of revision.

Regional Speciation or Taxonomic Inflation? The Status of Several Narrowly Distributed and Endangered Species of Narcissus Using ISSR and Nuclear Ribosomal ITS Markers
TLDR
ISSR and ITS markers support the taxonomic distinction of N. bugei and N. longispathus in Narcissus section Pseudonarcissi, and suggest that these species could be merged within a single species. Expand

TLDR
The results emphasize the need for dense population sampling and examination of different geographical scales for understanding population genetic structure in habitat specialists restricted to ecological islands. Expand
