Red list of the endemic plants of the Caucasus : Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Russia, and Turkey( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With over 2700 endemic plant taxa, including relict species, such as the near threatened Pinus eldarica, the Caucasus region is one of the world's most beautiful and important biodiversity hotspots. The Red List provides the first floristic and conservation analysis of the plants of the region, with assessments for over 60% of the endemic taxa, including top priorities for conservation action. ln addition to the list, profiles of the six countries are provided, detailing the range of climates, habitats, and vegetation and identifying important national plants and their threats. This work will serve as an integral tool for botanists, ecoIogists, and researchers worldwide, working to study and protect the biodiversity heritage of this important region

Molecular phylogenetics of Sarcolaenaceae (Malvales), Madagascar's largest endemic plant family( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : With 72 species belonging to ten genera, Sarcolaenaceae are the largest and most diverse of Madagascar's endemic plant families. Comprising shrubs and trees, with members found in nearly all of this island nation's biogeographic regions, they are characterised by the presence of a distinctive extra‐floral involucre that is more or less accrescent, partially or completely covering or enveloping the fruit. We present the first molecular phylogenetic study of Sarcolaenaceae, using broad sampling that encompasses the family's taxonomic and morphological diversity, including 46 species representing all ten genera and sequence data from one nuclear marker (ITS) and three plastid regions ( psaA‐ORF170, psbA ‐ trnH and rbcL ), to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships using Bayesian inference and maximum likelihood. Results confirm the monophyly of Sarcolaenaceae and of eight of the ten genera; the monophyly of Rhodolaena remains ambiguous, although the taxa sampled were recovered in two well supported clades that are coherent in terms of morphology and geography. Only a single species of Eremolaena was available for study. The phylogenetic backbone of Sarcolaenaceae is not fully resolved, making it difficult to identify potential morphological synapomorphies or ecological preferences between and within genera. In the family, two monophyletic groups were, however, found [ Pentachlaena + Eremolaena + Perrierodendron (Clade A) and Xyloolaena + Leptolaena + Sarcolaena + Mediusella + Xerochlamys (Clade B)] that are consistent with previous results based on morphology. Expanded species sampling and data from additional, more quickly evolving markers will be needed to produce a fully resolved phylogenetic tree for Sarcolaenaceae, which could then serve as a basis for exploring macroevolutionary patterns and processes in this remarkable family and reconstructing its biogeographic history
