- EL GÃ‰NERO ERYTHRINA (LEGUMINOSAE) EN ARGENTINA. Lozano, Evangelina Carmen; Zapater, María Alicia // Darwiniana;dic2010, Vol. 48 Issue 2, p179
The genus Erythrina in Argentina is composed of three native species: E. crista-galli var. cristagalli, E. falcata and E. dominguezi, the first two taxa are morphologically very similar and it is difficult to identify them based on herbarium material. The aim of this contribution is to review...
- THE BEGONIA OF VERACRUZ: ADDITIONS AND REVISIONS. McMillan, Patrick D.; Wyatt, Graham; Morris, Rekha // Acta Botanica Mexicana;2006, Issue 75, p77
Field explorations and examination of herbarium specimens were utilized to document the diversity of Begonia species found within the state of Veracruz. Thirty species were found to be of native occurrence in the state. one species, Begonia involucrata is reported as new to Mexico and is...
- Phytolacca rivinoides (Phytolaccaceae), its presence in Argentina. Guaglianone, Encarnacion Rosa // Darwiniana;1996, Vol. 34 Issue 1/2, p399
In this note, Phytolacca rivinoides Kunth et BouchÃ© (Phytolaccaceae) is described and illustrated, showing the characters useful for its identification. The genus is represented in Argentina for 5 species, one of them introduced.
- Morphological and genetic variation within and among four Quercus petraea and Q. robur natural populations. YÜCEDAĞ, Cengiz; GAILING, Oliver // Turkish Journal of Botany;Jul2013, Vol. 37 Issue 4, p619
Numeric-taxonomical and molecular techniques [nuclear simple sequence repeats (nSSRs), expressed sequence tag (EST) SSRs, and chloroplast SSRs] were used to estimate morphological and genetic differentiation within and among 4 Quercus petraea and Q. robur natural populations in Turkey. Canonical...
- Elucidating the native sources of an invasive tree species, Acacia pycnantha, reveals unexpected native range diversity and structure. Ndlovu, Joice; Richardson, David M.; Wilson, John R. U.; O'Leary, Martin; Le Roux, Johannes J. // Annals of Botany;May2013, Vol. 111 Issue 5, p895
Background and Aims Understanding the introduction history of invasive plant species is important for their management and identifying effective host-specific biological control agents. However, uncertain taxonomy, intra- and interspecific hybridization, and cryptic speciation may obscure...
- Morphological, karyological, and molecular analysis in Aster spp. (Asteraceae). Tornadore, Noemi; Bonomi, Marta; Marcucci, Rossella; Barcaccia, Gianni; Parrini, Paolo; Lucchin, Margherita // Israel Journal of Plant Sciences;2003, Vol. 51 Issue 2, p109
Two species of the genus Aster L. from Nepal have been studied and compared with a common European species A. alpinus L. The aim was to verify the specific taxonomic classification and to characterize the aster populations on the basis of morphological, karyological, and molecular analysis.
- GEUM VERNUM, SPRING AVENS (ROSACEAE): A NEW, POTENTIALLY WEEDY SPECIES IN BERKSHIRE COUNTY, MASSACHUSETTS. Frost, Karro A.; Searcy, Karen B. // Rhodora;2009, Vol. 111 Issue 945, p120
The article provides an overview on Geum vernum, wildlife weedy species found in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. It reveals that in 2006, a population of Geum vernum in the Schenob Brook Fen watershed was discovered. The population is composed of hundred individuals in flower and fruit. It...
- Lessons from successful plant eradications in Galapagos: commitment is crucial. Buddenhagen, Christopher; Tye, Alan // Biological Invasions;Oct2015, Vol. 17 Issue 10, p2893
We analyse introduced plant eradication projects in Galapagos. 8 (38 %) of 21 initiated projects have succeeded. Evaluation of project progress, feasibility and costs suggests that for
- Differential levels of genetic diversity and divergence among populations of an ancient Australian rainforest conifer, Araucaria cunninghamii. Pye, Matthew; Henwood, Murray; Gadek, Paul // Plant Systematics & Evolution;Feb2009, Vol. 277 Issue 3/4, p173
Historical fragmentation and subsequent isolation has affected the levels of genetic diversity in many lineages of ancient plant taxa. This study investigated the effects of historical processes on Araucaria cunninghamii (Hoop Pine), Araucariaceae, using both RAPD and ISSR markers. While most...
