Environmental sensitivities of plant populations and their practical importance. I: A case study on Pinus brutia Ten. Bitki populasyonlarinin cevresel duyarlilik degeri ve uygulamadaki onemi. I: kizilcam ornegi

Six Pinus brutia populations from different origins (Sarılar, Doyran, Murtbeli, Bük, Kapan and Hacıbekar) were planted in 4 common garden experiments located at different heights on the Taurus mountains near Antalya. Tree height at age 6 years and the number of growth cycles during the sixth growing season were measured; using these parameters environmental sensitivities of the populations were calculated. The Murtbeli population had the highest environmental sensitivity.

Molecular phylogenetic position of Turkish abies (pinaceae) based on noncoding trn regions of chloroplast genome
Özdemir Değirmenci, Funda; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2011)
Abies is the second largest genus of family Pinaceae (after Pinus), consisting of about 51 species, all native to the Northern Hemisphere. There are six native taxa belonging to this genus growing in pure and mixed stands in Turkey. Abies cilicica subsp. isaurica, Abies nordmanniana subsp. bornmülleriana, Abies nordmanniana subsp. equi-trojani, Abies x olcayana are endemic and considered as lower risk (LR) species. To determine the genetic relationships in Turkish firs, 18 populations of different subspecie...
Molecular phylogenetics of Turkish Salix L. species
Acar, Pelin; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2017)
Chloroplast (trnT-F, matK and rbcL) and nuclear genome (ITS) regions were used to explore the evolutionary relationships of Salix species which are native to Turkey. Morphological analysis with the utilization of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) was also carried out. Such a combined sequence data from cpDNA and nrDNA genes enabled reliable subgenus-level classification of Turkish willows (subgenus Salix and Vetrix). Morphological and genetic results agree with traditional taxonomic concepts in clustering ...
Genetic Variation in Cold Hardiness and Phenology Between and Within Turkish Red Pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) Populations: Implications for Seed Transfer
Kandemir, Gaye; Kaya, Zeki; TEMEL, FATİH; Önde, Sertaç (2010-01-01)
Wind-pollinated seeds from 40 trees (half-sib families) were collected from each of six Turkish red pine (Pinus brutia Ten.) populations in southern Turkey. Two-year old seedlings were evaluated for growth, phenology and cold resistance in a common garden experiment established in Ankara, located outside the species' natural range. Each family was represented with a six-tree row plot within each of the three replications. The below freezing temperatures (-15.2 degrees C) observed in January and February of ...
Assessment of genetic diversity in picea orientalis (l.) link. in genetic resources by microsatellites
Özdilek, Aslı; Kaya, Zeki; Temel, Fatih; Department of Biology (2015)
Picea comprises about 40 species in the world. One of these species, oriental spruce (Picea orientalis (L.) Link.) is naturally distributed in northeastern Turkey, mostly in Artvin Province and in a part of Georgia close to the coast of the Black Sea region. The limited distribution of species and increased anthropogenic threats to its genetic resources signify the importance of studying genetic diversity of the species to have better conservation and management programs. Here, we report the first high thro...
Plasmalemma from the roots of cucumber: Isolation by two-phase partitioning and characterization
Memon, Abdul Razaque; Sommarin, Marianne; Kylin, Anders (Wiley, 1987-2)
Plasmalemma was isolated from the roots of 2‐week‐old cucumber plants (Cucumis sativus L. cv. Rhensk druv) by utilizing an aqueous polymer two‐phase system with 6.5%:6.5% (w/w) Dextran T500 and polyethylene glycol (PEG) 3350 at pH 7.8. The plasmalemma fraction comprised ca 6% of the membrane proteins contained in the microsomal fraction. The specific activity of the plasma membrane marker enzyme (K+, Mg2+‐ATPase) was 14‐ to 17‐times higher in the upper (PEG‐rich) than in the lower (Dextran‐rich) phase, and ...
