Numerical taxonomy of the Genus Salvia (Sage) in East and Southeast Anatolia

This study aims to carry out multivariate statistical analyseson 59 taxa of the genus SalviaL. (sage) naturally found in East and Southeast Anatolia in Turkey based on macromorphological, anatomical, palynological and mericarp micromorphological characteristics, to construct an infrageneric grouping in the genus and tounderstandthephylogeneticrelationships between taxa.For the multivariate correspondence analyses, OTUs (Operational Taxonomic Units) representing different populations of the Salviataxa were investigated and scored on the basis of sixty character states. These analyses were used to obtain dendrograms, applying UPGMA algorithm and the Gower’s General Similarity Coefficient, Percent Similarity and Euclidean Distance. Principle Coordinate Analysis (PCO) utilizing the Gower’s coefficient on standardized data was conducted on the specimens to see their distribution as three-dimensional plots.As a result of the numerical analyses, we obtained the dendrograms, in which we could separate seven major clusters. Respectively, these were as follows: Hemisphace, Drymosphace, Plethiosphace, Aethiopis, Horminum, Hymenosphaceand Salviasections. PCO analysis agreed on the findings of the research. The results obtained from the present study support Bentham (1833) and Boissier’s (1879) taxonomic decisions on infrageneric delimitation of Salvia.

Taxonomic Relationships in Turkish Verbascum L. Group A (Scrophulariaceae): Evidence from SDS-PAGE of Seed Proteins and a Numerical Taxonomic Study
ÇELEBİ KESKİN, AYTEN; Karaveliogullari, Faik Ahmet; AÇIK, LEYLA; Celep, Ferhat (2009-01-01)
Objective: The aim of this study is to clarify the taxonomic relationships of Turkish Verbascum species in Group A by means of seed protein profiles and numerical taxonomic study.
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...
Phylogenetic relationships of Elymus L. and related genera (Poaceae) based on the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer sequences
Dizkirici, Ayten; KAYA, ZEKİ; Cabi, Evren; Doğan, Musa (2010-01-01)
To help in the clarification of the taxonomic status of Elymus L and related genera Agropyron Gaertn Leymus Hochst Hordelymus (Jess) Harz and Brachypodium P Beauv, the sequence diversity in the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of nuclear ribosomal DNA was studied ITS data of 64 Triticeae accessions including 40 Elymus 12 Agropyron 7 Leymus and 4 Hordelymus and 1 Brachypodium as an out group were analysed The molecular diversity statistics Indicated that the most diverse genus is Elymus among the stu...
Turkish Salix species: Molecular phylogeny and morphology
Acar, Pelin; TAŞKIRAN, BİRCAN; ÖZDEMİR DEĞİRMENCİ, FUNDA; Kaya, Zeki (2020-07-01)
This study provides a new insight into Turkish Solix L. systematics, using a molecular phylogeny and numerical morphotnetric analysis approach. Despite its economic importance for bioenergy, there is to date no record of any extensive study on this Turkish willow species. twenty-four Solix species and one hybrid were subjected to molecular and morphometric evaluation, in which one gene region of the external transcribed spacer (ETS) of the 18S-26S nuclear ribosomal DNA and 11 morphologic-al characters were ...
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...
