The Genus Epimedium and Other Herbaceous Berberidaceae

  title={The Genus Epimedium and Other Herbaceous Berberidaceae},
  author={William Thomas Stearn},
Plastid genome data provide new insights into the phylogeny and evolution of the genus Epimedium
Exploration of genetic diversity among medicinally important genus Epimedium species based on genomic and EST-SSR marker
It has been concluded that medicinally important species of the genus Epimedium possesses lower intraspecific genetic variation.
The Epimedium wushanense (Berberidaceae) species complex, with one new species from Sichuan, China
Epimedium wushanense (Berberidaceae) as treated in the Flora of China includes four species similar in leaflet shape: E. wushanense , E. ilicifolium , E. jinchengshanense (sp. nov.), and E.
Identification of the genus Epimedium with DNA barcodes
It is concluded that the psbA-trnH region was the better potentially DNA barcode for the genus Epimedium, due to easy amplification, high level of interspecific divergence and well-separated barcoding gap.
A taxonomic revision of unifoliolate Chinese Epimedium L. (Berberidaceae)
Five Chinese species of Epimedium (Berberidaceae) are reviewed based on extensive examination of specimens in herbaria and careful observation in the field and garden, and with the exception of E. elachyphyllum, the taxa are found to have predominantly trifoliolate and only occasionally unifolioate leaves.
Chromosomal localization of 45S and 5S rDNA in 14 species and the implications for genome evolution of genus Epimedium
The stable differentiation in 45S and 5S rDNA FISH patterns between the two sections suggests that chromosomal rearrangements and transpositional events played a role in the splitting of the twosections, and section Diphyllon may be more primitive than section Epimedium.
Karyomorphology of Epimedium (Berberidaceae) and its phylo-genetic implications
The interphase nucleus and mitotic pro-phase chromosomes were found to be of the complex chromocenter type, and the interstitial type, respectively, and probably result in speciation of Epimedium to some extent.
A New Species of Epimedium (Berberidaceae) with 24 Chromosomes from Guizhou, China
The new species Epimedium yinjiangense is described from Guizhou Province, China and is similar to E. acuminatum Franch.
Karyomorphology of eighteen species of genus Epimedium (Berberidaceae) and its phylogenetic implications
All the Epimedium species, investigated in the present research, have a uniform karyotype with two types of chromosome, metacentric and submetacentric, except E. sagittatum, of which the sixth pair of chromosomes were subteleocentric.
A New Species of Epimedium (Berberidaceae) from Hubei, China
A new species of Epimedium L. shennongjiaensis, which is similar to E. epsteinii Stearn but is distinguished by its compact rhizomes, narrowly ovate and acuminate inner sepals, and petals slightly shorter or nearly as long as the outer sepals with straight spurs.
