Taxonomic revision of Syringa pinetorum complex (Oleaceae)

  title={Taxonomic revision of Syringa pinetorum complex (Oleaceae)},
  author={Jinyi Chen and Zuoshuang Zhang and Deyuan. Hong},
  journal={Journal of Systematics and Evolution},
Five species of the Syringa pinetorum complex described by previous authors are revised. Syringa wardii W. W. Sm., S. mairei (H. Lev.) Rehder, S. rugulosa McKelvey and S. chuanxiensis S. Z. Qu & X. L. Chen are treated as synonyms of S. pinetorum on the basis of population sampling, character analysis and principal coordinate analysis, and S. mairei is a new synonym. Only one variable species, S. pinetorum, is here recognized in the complex. were sampled across northern Yunnan and western… Expand

Polymorphism in Syringa rDNA regions assessed by PCR technique.
The aim of this study was to determine the possi- bility for the identification of genotypic diversity and genetic relationships in the nrDNA sequence of some selected Syringa accessions - part of a collection of the Dendrological Garden in Przelewice (Poland). Expand
Morphological Variation in Leaf Dissection of Rheum palmatum Complex (Polygonaceae)
The statistical analysis showed that the degree of leaf blade dissection is continuous from lobed to parted, and the shape of the lobe is also continuous from broadly triangular to lanceolate both within and between populations. Expand
Phylogenetics and Diversification of Syringa Inferred from Nuclear and Plastid DNA Sequences
DNA sequences of two nuclear and five plastid regions are used to better resolve phylogenetic relationships of Syringa and Ligustrum and support the derivation of LigUSTrum from within SyringA, thus the paraphyly of Syringsa is supported. Expand


Some taxonomic changes in Syringa (Oleaceae), including a revision of series Pubescentes
The preparation of an account of Syringa for the forthcoming English version of the Flora of China, combined with the preparation of a account for the European Garden Flora, has led to a review of the genus and a reassessment of the appropriate rank for some of the previously recognized species or varieties.
