This is the first comprehensive palynological investigation of the genus Lamium. The pollen morphology of 48 taxa (including species, subspecies and varieties) of the genus Lamium was investigated and documented using light microscopy (LM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Lamium pollen is small to medium sized (I) = 21.65-39.96 mu m), oblate-spheroidal to subprolate in shape and tricolpate. Three major exine sculpturing patterns (reticulate, granulate and microreticulate) were observed. The results indicated that the exine sculpturing pattern of Lamium is systematically informative at sectional level, but not at the species and infraspecific levels. In the present study, the palynological data are compared with available phylogenetic studies to evaluate the systematic value of pollen characters in the genus. Analysis show that; (1) Mennema's infrageneric classification is partly corroborated by our palynological data, (2) recent phylogenetic analysis on the genus and our results are partly corroborated, and (3) pollen morphology supports the inclusion of L. galeobdolon (=Galeobdolon), L. orientale and L. multifidum (=Wiedemannia) in Lamium. (4) Variation in exine sculpturing pattern have systematic importance particularly at sectional level. (C) 2016 Elsevier GmbH. All rights reserved.

Systematic significance of anatomy and trichome morphology in Lamium (Lamioideae; Lamiaceae)
Atalay, Zeynep; CELEP, FERHAT; Bara, Fatma; Doğan, Musa (2016-11-01)
Lamium (Lamiaceae, Lamioideae) is a widespread and taxonomically complex genus. A comparative anatomical study of the root, stem, leaf and petioles in 33 taxa assigned to this genus is carried out in order to address generic delimitation, subgeneric classification and species delimitation. Using light and scanning electrone microscopy, anatomical features and indumentum characteristics are investigated. In addition, the phylogenetic implication of the observed variations are discussed. Anatomical characters...
Pollen morphology of some taxa of Vicia L. subgenus Vicilla (Schur) Rouy (Fabaceae) from Turkey
Binzat, Okan Kaan; KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Doğan, Musa (2014-10-01)
The pollen morphology of the ten taxa belonging to Cassubicae Radzhi, Cracca Dumort., Ervilia (Link) Koch, Lentopsis Kupicha, Trigonellopsis Rech. f. and Variegatae Radzhi sections of the genus Vicia L. subgenus Vicilla (Schur) Rouy (Fabeae, Fabaceae) in Turkey has been examined by use of light microscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Twelve morphometric characters are analysed with one-way analysis of variance and Tukey's honestly significant difference test for multiple comparisons. Polar axis and equ...

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...
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of Juniperus L. species in Turkey and their relations with other junipers based on cpDNA
Güvendiren, Aysun Demet; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2015)
Evolutionary relationships within and among two sections and three subsections of Juniperus species (Section Juniperus, subsections Juniperus, Oxycedrus and Caryocedrus, Section Sabina) naturally distributed in Turkey were investigated with molecular variations of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA). This study revealed the phylogenetic relation of 66 individuals from 7 native Turkish Juniperus L. species based upon DNA sequence of trnL intron (trnL5’-L3’) , trnL3’- F(GAA) (trnL-F intergenic spacer), trnV intron and ma...
Pollen morphology of 10 taxa belonging to Prangos Lindl. and Ekimia H. Duman & M.F. Watson (Umbelliferae) from turkey and its taxonomic significance
Pehlivan, Sevil; Baser, Birol; Cabi, Evren (Bangladesh Journals Online (JOL), 2009-12-5)
Pollen grains of nine taxa of Prangos Lindl. and one of Ekimia H. Duman & M.F. Watson (Umbelliferae) were examined with LM (light microscope) and SEM (scanning electron microscope), and of them four with TEM (transmission electron microscope). The quantitative data were also subjected to cluster analysis. The obtained phenogram revealed that Ekimia bornmuelleri (Hub.-Mor. & Reese) H. Duman & M.F. Watson is strictly different from the taxa of Prangos regarding their quantitative pollen profile; except ...
