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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Božo Frajman; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : 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; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Systematics and phylogenetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi 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.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Syftet med föreliggande undersökningar var att söka nå en mer fullständig kunskap om barn och ungas eldsanläggelse; att undersöka hur frekvent förekommande det är, samt om det, i experimentella studier, kan relateras till frustration eller leda och till personlighetsdrag som optimism, pessimism och kreativitet. Avhandlingen består av fyra studier, två intervjuundersökningar och två experimentella studier. READ MORE

  4. 4. Systematics in Sileneae (Caryophyllaceae) – Taxonomy and Phylogenetic patterns

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Frida Eggens; Uppsala universitet.; [2006]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sileneae; Silene; RNAP; psbE-petG; ITS; rps16; relative dating; Rigidulae; Heliosperma; Arenosae; phylogeny; homoploid reticulate evolution; Silene linearis Decne.; Silene polyphylla L.; Hawaiian Silene; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Systematics and phylogenetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Systematik och fylogeni;

    Abstract : The focus for the first part of the thesis is on the systematics of species belonging to Silene subgenus Silene. Phylogenetic relationships are inferred from DNA sequences from both the plastid (the rps16 intron) and the nuclear (ITS, intron of the RPB2 gene) genomes. READ MORE
