The mountains of the southeast Iberian Peninsula harbor several narrowly endemic species belonging to Narcissus section Pseudonarcissi (N. alcaracensis, N. bugei, N. enemeritoi, N. longispathus, N. nevadensis, N. segurensis, and N. yepesii) that are protected by regional Spanish laws. Most of these trumpet daffodils show a very similar overall morphology, and the correct identification of species is difficult unless the geographical origins of the accessions are known. ISSR (Inter-Simple… Expand

Population Genetics Methods Applied to a Species Delimitation Problem: Endemic Trumpet Daffodils (Narcissus Section Pseudonarcissi) from the Southern Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
Genetically, geographically, and ecologically well-defined lineages of the Pseudonarcissi section occur throughout the southern mountains of the Iberian Peninsula, generally supporting the traditional taxonomical delimitation of this lineage and qualifying as separate units of conservation. 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
Genetic Diversity of some Daffodil (Narcissus L. spp.) Genotypes in Turkey by Using SRAP Markers
TLDR
It can be concluded that genetic variation of Narcissus species can be used for daffodil breeding programs. 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
New data on daffodils of the Narcissus nevadensis complex (Amaryllidaceae) in SE Spain: N. nevadensis subsp. herrerae subsp. nov., and N. nevadensis subsp. longispathus comb. nov.
TLDR
The Iberian Peninsula is the centre of diversity for N. Pseudonarcissus, with N. nevadensis Pugsley (1933: 62) being proposed as the ancestral species of this group (Fernandes 1951), and recently, after molecular analyses, this species has been separated into an independent section. Expand
Molecular characterisation of the genus Papaver section Oxytona using ISSR markers
TLDR
The inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) molecular marker system can be used for the classification of section Oxytona, which is found widely in the native flora of Turkey and is commercially important for high alkaloid content. Expand
Multivariate morphometric analysis and taxa delimitation in two narrow Greek endemics: Astragalus maniaticus and Aethionema saxatile subsp. corinthiacum
TLDR
Several multivariate morphometric analyses revealed that Astragalus maniaticus cannot be distinguished from A. suberosus subsp. Expand
Seed germination in Narcissus yepesii (Amaryllidaceae): clinal variation in the morphophysiological dormancy levels
TLDR
The results demonstrate a cline in these levels in response to both an environmental gradient and genetic differences, which strongly suggests an evolutionary gradient, which connects the intermediate complexMPD with the non-deep complex MPD in southern Iberian daffodils. Expand
Evolution of alkaloid biosynthesis in the genus Narcissus.
TLDR
The results indicate that the first alkaloids to evolve in the genus Narcissus were of the lyCorine- and homolycorine-type, and the alkaloid pattern of the Nevadensis section supports its recent separation from the Pseudonarcissus section. Expand
In Vitro Preservation of Spanish Biodiversity
TLDR
The knowledge and experience accumulated during the last decades in micropropagation, slow growth, and cryopreservation for Spanish plant wild species are reviewed and their application in the development ex situ collections and their contribution toward an integrated system to conserve threatened species are discussed.

Phylogenetic Relationships and Biogeography within the Eurasian Clade of Amaryllidaceae Based on Plastid ndhF and nrDNA ITS Sequences: Lineage Sorting in a Reticulate Area?
TLDR
It is hypothesized that lineage sorting took place after the divergence of Galantheae and Narcisseae/Pancratium from a common genepool with Hannonia, Lapiedra, and Vagaria retaining a mosaic of the ancestral haplotypes, and North Africa and the Iberian Peninsula are the most likely areas of origin for the rest of the clade. Expand
Isolated populations or isolated taxa? A case study in narrowly-distributed snapdragons (Antirrhinum sect. Sempervirentia) using RAPD markers
TLDR
Although A. valentinum appeared the most closely related species to A. subbaeticum, molecular data suggested that this species merits taxonomic distinction, suggesting that isolation by distance is responsible for the distribution of genetic variation among Antirrhinum populations. Expand
Mating patterns and genetic diversity in the wild Daffodil Narcissus longispathus (Amaryllidaceae)
TLDR
Selfing rates and levels of genetic diversity at allozyme loci in six populations of Narcissus longispathus, a self-compatible daffodil endemic to a few mountain ranges in southeastern Spain, indicate that few selfed offspring survive to maturity because of inbreeding depression. Expand
Phylogenetic reconstruction of the evolution of stylar polymorphisms in Narcissus (Amaryllidaceae).
TLDR
Concentrated-changes tests indicate that a long, narrow floral tube may have been associated with the emergence of stigma-height dimorphism and that this type of tube, in combination with a deep corona, likely promoted, or at least was associated with, the parallel origins of heterostyly. Expand
Assessing hybridization in natural populations of Penstemon (Scrophulariaceae) using hypervariable intersimple sequence repeat (ISSR) bands
TLDR
The results do not support the hybrid origin of P. spectabilis, but do support the hypothesis that P. clevelandii is a diploid hybrid species derived from P. centranthifolius, and demonstrate that pollen‐mediated gene flow via hummingbird vectors is prevalent in the hybrid complex. Expand
Assessment of genome origins and genetic diversity in the genus Eleusine with DNA markers.
TLDR
Comparison of RFLP, RAPD, and ISSR technologies, in terms of the quantity and quality of data output, indicated that ISSRs are particularly promising for the analysis of plant genome diversity. Expand
The origin of cultivation and wild ancestors of daffodils (Narcissus subgenus Ajax) (Amaryllidaceae) from an analysis of early illustrations
TLDR
A comparison of early descriptions, localities, and illustrations with currently wild species confirmed that several Iberian Peninsula endemics were cultivated in Central European gardens between the 16th and 18th centuries. Expand
Collapse of species boundaries in the wild potatoSolanum brevicaule complex (Solanaceae, S. sect.Petota): Molecular data
TLDR
The molecular results suggest that the Solanum brevicaule complex is paraphyletic as currently circumscribed, and many species of the S. brevicAUle complex should be relegated to synonymy. Expand
Convergent evolution of flower polymorphism in Narcissus (Amaryllidaceae)
TLDR
It is concluded that the two heterostylous species of NarcISSus have independent origins, supporting previous hypothesis of convergence of heterostyly in Narcissus and remarkable resemblance of flower features between both species indicates that pollinator activity might have driven flower convergence. Expand
Genetic relationships among species of the genus Diplotaxis (Brassicaceae) using inter-simple sequence repeat markers
TLDR
The genetic relationships among the ten Diplotaxis species estimated by the polymorphism of ISSR markers are in agreement with those previously inferred by other morphological, biochemical and molecular data, indicating the reliability of the ISSR approach for this purpose. Expand
