Abstract.Sequences of the nuclear region ITS and the variable molecular markers ISSR were used to estimate the phylogeny of the section Melanium of the genus Viola. We confirm that the so-called pansies form a derived and monophyletic group. Two floral characters, the upturned side petals and the large size of pollen grains appear to be synapomorphies in Melanium. The Melanium species are very closely related, as shown by the reduced genetic variation compared to the other sections of Viola… Expand

Intraspecific variation in Viola suavis in Europe: parallel evolution of white-flowered morphotypes.
TLDR
These results suggest that intraspecific variation in V. suavis has been largely shaped by population isolations during the last glaciation and subsequent recolonizations, although cultivation and vegetative spread by humans have affected the present picture as well. Expand
Genetic and morphological variation in Viola suavis s.l. (Violaceae) in the western Balkan Peninsula: two endemic subspecies revealed
TLDR
A study of the western Balkan populations of the polymorphic European species, V. suavis s.l., revealed the presence of four allopatric, genetically and morphologically differentiated lineages within V. adriatica, which are suggested here to be recognized at the subspecific rank. Expand
Comparative palynology and seed morphology in annual pansies (Viola sect. Melanium, Violaceae): implications for species delimitation
  • A. Scoppola, S. Magrini
  • Biology
  • Plant Biosystems - An International Journal Dealing with all Aspects of Plant Biology
  • 2019
TLDR
Seed size was found to be a good delimitating character, especially to distinguish V. kitaibeliana, having the smallest pollen grains, from the others, especially from V. arvensis with the largest ones, and easy to be measured with no need of particular equipment. Expand
Taxonomy of the Hypnum cupressiforme complex in Italy based on ITS and trnL sequences and ISSR markers
TLDR
It is suggested that morphological variation of the H. cupressiforme complex does not always correspond to genetic diversity, and a major molecular divergence of H. jutlandicum within the complex is highlighted. Expand
CULTIVARS (VIOLACEAE): WIDE INTRASPECIFIC HYBRIDIZATION, STERILITY, AND SEXUAL REPRODUCTION 1
TLDR
It is shown that the Parma violet cultivars have their origin within Viola alba and that they are best included in the Mediterranean subsp. Expand
Establishing the phylogenetic origin, history, and age of the narrow endemic Viola guadalupensis (Violaceae).
TLDR
Phylogenetic reconstructions showed that Viola guadalupensis originated through hybridization between unidentified members of subsection Canadenses (paternal parent) and subsection Nuttallianae (maternal parent), suggesting the species evolved after the Guadalupe Mountains formed 12-13 Ma. Expand
Hybridization between insular endemic and widespread species of Viola in non-disturbed environments assessed by nuclear ribosomal and cpDNA sequences
TLDR
The additivity of the ITS sequences, together with the pollen and ovule sterility, suggests that the sampled individuals are primary F1 hybrids, whereas no trace of introgressive hybridization or hybrid zone has been evidenced by the nuclear and plastid markers used. Expand
Identity of the Calcarata species complex in Viola sect. Melanium (Violaceae)
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the lack of phylogenetic resolution in the Calcarata complex may result mainly from frequent hybridization and hybrid speciation, processes that are well documented for Viola and V. Melanium. Expand
Pollen studies in the genus viola (violaceae) from Iran
Abstract Pollen morphology of 17 species of Viola representing five sections, Melanium, Plagiostigma, 'Spathulidium' ined., Sclerosium, and Viola, was studied using light and scanning electronExpand
A Phylogeny of the Violaceae (Malpighiales) Inferred from Plastid DNA Sequences: Implications for Generic Diversity and Intrafamilial Classification
TLDR
The phylogenetic inferences presented in this study illustrate the need to describe new generic segregates and to reinstate other genera, as well as to revise the traditionally accepted intrafamilial classification of the Violaceae. Expand

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Linanthus (Polemoniaceae).
TLDR
The authors' data suggest two separate and well-supported lineages of Linanthus in close association with two other genera-Leptodactylon and Phlox and do not support the traditional classification of the genus as a natural group, nor do they support the sectional classification within the genus. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in Monanthes (Crassulaceae) based on morphological, chloroplast and nuclear DNA variation
TLDR
Combined ITS2 sequences, trnL — trnF sequences and morphological data indicated that the relationships among three types of perennial growth forms, i.e. tiny rosettes, small, branched shrubs and diffuse branches shrublets, are highly dependent on the outgroup used. Expand
Documentation of reticulate evolution in peonies (Paeonia) using internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA: implications for biogeography and concerted evolution.
TLDR
Reconstruction of reticulate evolution with sequence data provides gene records for distributional histories of some of the parental species and demonstrates that the sequence data could be highly informative and accurate for detecting hybridization. Expand
The monophyly and rapid evolution of Gentiana sect. Chondrophyllae Bunge s.l. (Gentianaceae): evidence from the nucleotide sequences of the internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA
The nucleotide sequences of the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA of 24 representative species of sect. Chondrophyllae s.l. have been determined and analysedExpand
Molecular Systematics and Biogeography of the Southeast Asian Genus Caryota (Palmae)
TLDR
Analysis of 49 populations of Caryota and six species from the putative outgroup genera Arenga and Wallichia demonstrated low levels of inter- and intraspecific variation as seen in other groups of palms and long-lived perennials. 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
Chloroplast Dna Polymorphism At The Intrageneric Level And Plant Phylogenies
TLDR
A high variability in divergence rates for two non-coding regions of the chloroplast genome is reported and three non-exclusive hypotheses involving sampling bias, age of common ancestor and variants of the molecular clock, are proposed and discussed. Expand
GENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF VIOLA SPECIES EVALUATED BY RANDOM AMPLIFIED POLYMORPHIC DNA ANALYSIS
TLDR
RAPD analysis can be used for providing an alternative classification system to identify genotypes and morphological characters of Viola species, and it is suggested that these species should be classified into Pinnatae. Expand
Shrinking the Violets: Phylogenetic Relationships of Infrageneric Groups in Viola (Violaceae) Based on Internal Transcribed Spacer DNA Sequences
TLDR
A phylogenetic study of the genus Viola used internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA sequences for 44 taxa representing many infrageneric groups in Viola plus outgroups Hybanthus concolor and Noisettia orchidiflora to find an Andean origin for the genus. Expand
Population structure and genetic diversity of Botrychium pumicola (Ophioglossaceae) based on inter-simple sequence repeats (ISSR).
TLDR
The results suggest that the long-distance dispersal of gemmae is at worst a rare event and high probability that these shared genotypes arose from independent sexual events suggesting they were not clones. Expand
