Taxonomic study on the genus Eremopyrum (Ledeb.) Jaub. et Spach (Poaceae) in Turkey

Cabi, Evren
Doğan, Musa
In this study, we examined whether a satisfactory infrageneric grouping in Eremopyrum (Ledeb.) Jaub. & Spach can be achieved with the help of cluster analysis based on external vegetative and floral morphological characters of specimens either gathered from the field or borrowed from various herbaria. Twenty morphological characters were chosen and scored for 36 populations representing the genus. The data were subjected to numerical taxonomic analyses, and a phenogram was obtained by applying Gower general similarity index. The results of this study suggest that there are basically five species in Turkey, namely E. triticeum (Gaertner) Nevski, E. orientale (L.) Jaub. & Spach, E. distans (K. Koch) Nevski, E. bonaepartis (Sprengel) Nevski, and E. confusum Melderis. For the first time a new variety, E. bonaepartis (Sprengel) Nevski. var. aristatum Cabi & Dogan, is proposed along with two new combinations: E. bonaepartis (Sprengel) Nevski. var. sinaicum (Steudel) Cabi & Dogan and E. confusum Melderis var. sublanuginosum (Drob.) Cabi & Dogan. An account of Eremopyrum in Turkey is given, including a key to the species and varieties, and a general indication of their distribution.


DNA fingerprinting and genetic characterization of Anatolian Triticum spp. using AFLP markers
Yildirim, Figen; Akkaya, Mahinur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-08-01)
In this study, genetic analysis of Triticum spp. was carried out using AFLP markers. Six AFLP selective combinations were scored as presence and absence of bands for all the individual samples obtained from a single seed of each accession (70 accessions); T. baeoticum (21), T. monococcum (5), T. urartu (16), T. araraticum (7), T. dicoccoides (16) and T. dicoccon (5), resulting in 506 polymorphic AFLP bands. The phylogenetic tree showed two major clusters; one was composed of T. monococcum (AA) and T. baeoti...
Pollen morphology of some taxa of Vicia L. subgenus Vicia (Fabaceae) from Turkey
KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Binzat, Okan Kaan; Doğan, Musa (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-11-01)
In this study, the pollen morphology of 11 taxa belonging to Atossa (Alef.) Asch. & Graebner, Hypechusa (Alef.) Asch. & Graebner, Peregrinae Kupicha, Wiggersia (Alef.) Maxted, Vicia L. and Narbonensis (Radzhi) Maxted sections of the genus Vicia L. subgenus Vicia (Fabeae, Fabaceae) naturally growing in Turkey has been studied using Light Microscopy (LM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to evaluate the taxonomic relevance of pollen characters. Twelve morphometric characters are analysed with one-way ana...
A numerical taxonomic study of the genus Acantholimon Boiss Plumbaginaceae in Ankara Province Turkey
MUVAFFAK, Aslı; Doğan, Musa; Bilgin, Cemal Can (Laser Pages Publishing Ltd., 2001-01-01)
This study examines whether a satisfactory classification of Acantholimon Boiss. (Plumbaginaceae) species found in Ankara province (Turkey) can be obtained from phenctic clustering based on external vegetative and floral morphological characters of both herbarium and collected specimens, The study is on the following species: A. venustum Boiss., A, halophilium Bokhari., A. acerosum (Willd.) Boiss., A. kotschyi (Jaub. & Spach) Boiss., A. confertiflorum Bokhari., A. glumaceum (Jaub. & Spach) Boiss., A. casare...
A taxonomic revision of the Sempervivum davisii complex (Crassulaceae)
KARAER, FERGAN; CELEP, FERHAT; Eggli, Urs (Wiley, 2011-01-01)
A revision of four Sempervivum species (S. artvinense, S. brevipetalum, S. davisii and S. furseorum) based on field observation and examination of herbarium specimens (including the type specimens of all names) is presented. Examination of critical diagnostic characters showed that S. artvinense, S. brevipetalum and S. furseorum fall within the variability of S. davisii and should be subsumed as synonyms under this name. Sempervivum furseorum shows minor but consistent morphological and ecological differenc...
Evolution of Neuronal and Endothelial Transcriptomes in Primates
Giger, Thomas; Khaitovich, Philipp; Somel, Mehmet; Lorenc, Anna; Lizano, Esther; Harris, Laura W.; Ryan, Margaret M.; Lan, Martin; Wayland, Matthew T.; Bahn, Sabine; Paeaebo, Svante (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-01-01)
The study of gene expression evolution in vertebrates has hitherto focused on the analysis of transcriptomes in tissues of different species. However, because a tissue is made up of different cell types, and cell types differ with respect to their transcriptomes, the analysis of tissues offers a composite picture of transcriptome evolution. The isolation of individual cells from tissue sections opens up the opportunity to study gene expression evolution at the cell type level. We have stained neurons and en...
