DNA sequences from the ITS region of the nuclear genome and Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat markers (ISSR) were used to estimate genetic diversity among and within populations of the Frankincense tree Boswellia sacra from Dhofar, Oman. This is a culturally and ecologically relevant species that is showing symptoms of decline due to anthropic factors and, possibly, global warming. ITS sequences were 511 bp long and showed low (6.4%) variation among geographically different populations. The four… Expand

TLDR
Using 10 Inter-Simple Sequence Repeat markers, patterns of genetic diversity and genetic differentiation among eight out of the c. Expand
nalysis of genetic structure of Ranunculus baudotii in a editerranean wetland . Implications for selection of seeds and eedlings for conservation
Seed collection and storage of wild species in ex-situ seed banks should be continued as an integrated tool for the conservation of plants in their habitats. Although seed-bank facilities are widelyExpand
A probable anthropic origin of Nerium oleander L. (Apocynaceae) population in Montecristo island (Italy, Tuscany): evidence from loci polymorphism and ISSR analysis
TLDR
The results indicate a probable anthropic origin for the population of Montecristo, which share several characters close to the anthropic reference population, such as a relatively high polymorphism detected and a close ISSR profile. Expand
Genetic Diversity and Differentiation Among Species and Populations of Boswellia
TLDR
Overall, a reasonable level of genetic diversity is observed in all the populations, but some populations showed high levels of genetic variations and high genetic and geographic distances (Thumrait, Dowkha and Mughsil). Expand
Increasing Boswellia sacra seeds’ germination viability and genetic variability utilizing various methods
TLDR
Stimulation of seeds to germinate under various conditions at Kibbutz Ketura, Israel was attempted in order to increase genetic variability and conspicuous correlation with Boswellia sacra's extremely low germination rate is discussed. Expand
Analysis of genetic structure of Ranunculus baudotii in a Mediterranean wetland. Implications for selection of seeds and seedlings for conservation
TLDR
The results highlight the importance of planning mixed propagation lines which can be obtained through the use of a range of germination conditions to exploit a novel source of genetic variability which may otherwise remain hidden within the seed collection. Expand
Endophytic Fungi from Frankincense Tree Improves Host Growth and Produces Extracellular Enzymes and Indole Acetic Acid
TLDR
It is concluded that endophytic microbial resources producing extracellular enzymes and auxin could establish a unique niche for ecological adaptation during symbiosis with the host Frankincense tree. Expand
CONSERVATION OF OMANI FRANKINCENSE (BOSWELLIA SACRA, BURSERACEAE) THROUGH PLANT TISSUE CULTURE APPROACH
TLDR
In vitro plant tissue culture stringency for Omani frankincense is established for the first time, and it is revealed that 2,4-D at 2, 5 and 10 mg/L can induce the callus from leaf explants, whereas, IAA 2 and 10mg/L induce theCallus. Expand

Strong genetic differentiation of the East-Himalayan Megacodon stylophorus (Gentianaceae) detected by Inter-Simple Sequence Repeats (ISSR)
TLDR
The observed genetic structure of the populations implies that as many populations as possible should be considered for any in situ and ex situ conservation practice on this species. Expand
Analysis of genetic diversity in Eucalyptus grandis (Hill ex Maiden) seed sources using inter simple sequence repeats (ISSR) molecular markers.
TLDR
ISSR-PCR technology is a reliable, rapid (high throughput) and cost effective marker system that can be used to study genetic variation and genetic relationships among E. grandis seed sources. Expand
Analysis of genetic diversity in the endangered tropical tree species Hagenia abyssinica using ISSR markers
TLDR
Both within-population and between-population diversity estimates are typical of outcrossing, longlived and late successional species, suggesting that recent anthropogenic disturbances have not yet had much impact on population genetic parameters. Expand
ISSR analysis of genetic diversity of the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau endemic, Rhodiola chrysanthemifolia (Crassulaceae)
TLDR
The high genetic differentiation of populations indicates the necessity of conserving the maximum possible number of populations, and inter-simple sequence repeat markers were used to estimate genetic diversity within and among 10 populations of Rhodiola chrysanthemifolia. Expand
Genetic diversity and geographic differentiation in endangered Ammopiptanthus (Leguminosae) populations in desert regions of northwest China as revealed by ISSR analysis.
TLDR
The significant genetic difference between the two species might be due to a possible vicariant evolutionary event from a single common ancestor through the fragmentation of their common ancestor's range. Expand
ISSR Analysis of the Genetic Diversity of the Endangered Species Sinopodophyllum hexandrum (Royle) Ying from Western Sichuan Province, China
TLDR
Based on the genetic and ecological information available for S. hexandrum, some appropriate strategies for the conservation of the endangered medicinal species are proposed, namely rescuing and conserving the core populations for in situ conservation and sampling and preserving more populations with fewer individuals from each population for ex situ conservation.

Genetic diversity inferred from AFLP fingerprinting in populations of Onosma echioides (Boraginaceae) from serpentine and calcareous soils
TLDR
Molecular data suggested isolation as the key factor shaping the infraspecific genetic structure of O. echioides, which may be in relation with the short-distance, zoochorous systems of seed dispersal and pollination of this species. Expand
ISSR markers show differentiation among Italian populations of Asparagus acutifolius L
TLDR
The results suggest that ISSR markers are useful in distinguishing the populations of A. acutifolius according to geographical origin, and confirm the importance of genetic studies for designing germplasm conservation strategies. Expand
Genetic variation in five Mediterranean populations of Juniperus phoenicea as revealed by inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers.
TLDR
The results indicate that geographical isolation has represented a major barrier to gene flow in Juniperus phoenicea, a first step towards a full genetic characterization of a conifer from the Mediterranean, a world biodiversity hotspot confronted with climate change. Expand
Genetic diversity analysis and conservation implications for the Iberian threatened populations of the irano-turanian relict Krascheninnikovia ceratoides (Chenopodiaceae)
TLDR
The genetic data suggest that the high levels of genetic diversity and the strong genetic structure found among the northern Iberian populations and ranges of K. ceratoides might result from the summed effects of its tetraploidy, its outbreeding nature, and its success in colonizing newly altered areas.
