    Abstract : This thesis deals with phylogenetic relationships at different taxonomic levels. All the plants studied are or have been included in the order Gentianales, which comprises about 17 200 species. READ MORE

  3. 3. Phylogeny and Taxonomy of Subfamily Zygophylloideae (Zygophyllaceae) with Special Reference to the Genus Fagonia

    Author : Björn-Axel Beier; Mats Thulin; Brian Schrire; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Biology; Phylogeny; Taxonomy; Zygophylloideae; Fagonia; Biogeography; Biologi; Biology; Biologi;

    Abstract : Members of Zygophylloideae are shrubs, shrublets and herbs of arid and semiarid areas of almost all continents, and many of the species are major components of the vegetation in their areas of distribution. A phylogenetic analysis of Zygophylloideae based on noncoding trnL plastid DNA sequences and morphological data, indicates that the currently recognised genera Augea, Tetraena, and Fagonia, are embedded in Zygophyllum.

  4. 4. Snake Gourds, Parasites and Mother Roasting : Medicinal plants, plant repellents, and Trichosanthes (Cucurbitaceae) in Lao PDR

    Author : Hugo J. de Boer; Lars Björk; Mats Thulin; Thomas Jaenson; Victoria Reyes-Garcia; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Trichosanthes; Ethnobotany; Similarity of Knowledge; Biogeography; Molecular Dating; Brou; Saek; Kry; Mother roasting; Postpartum healthcare; Parturition; Childbirth; Traditional Medicine; Plant repellents; Fermented fish; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik; Biology with specialization in Systematics;

    Abstract : Background. Traditional plant use was studied in Lao PDR. Research focused on medicinal plant use by the Brou, Saek and Kry ethnic groups, traditional plant repellents against parasitic arthropods and leeches, and the phylogeny and biogeography of the medicinally-important snake gourd genus (Trichosanthes, Cucurbitaceae).  Methods.

  5. 5. Taxonomy and Reticulate Phylogeny of Heliosperma and Related Genera (Sileneae, Caryophyllaceae)

    Author : Božo Frajman; Bengt Oxelman; Mats Thulin; Christian Brochmann; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sileneae; Silene; Heliosperma; Atocion; Viscaria; taxonomy; phylogenetics; relative dating; reticulate evolution; chloroplast capture; homoploid hybridisation; BEAST; r8s; PATHd8; Prometheus; RPA2; RPB2; RPD2a; RPD2b; Balkan Peninsula; endemics; Systematics and phylogenetics; Systematik och fylogeni;

    Abstract : Heliosperma (nom. cons prop.) comprises 15—20 taxa, most of them endemic to the Balkan Peninsula. DNA sequences from the chloroplast (rps16 intron, psbE-petG spacer) and the nuclear genome (ITS and four putatively unlinked RNA polymerase genes) are used to elucidate phylogenetic relationships within Heliosperma, and its position within Sileneae.
