How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Exploration of evolutionary relationships within 'special' plant species 'complexes' - Integration of Molecular, Ecological, Spatial, and Niche Modeling data.
Streptocarpus ionanthus (Gesneriaceae) is endemic to Tanzania and Kenya, distributed in Tanga, Morogoro and Kilifi regions. The species houses nine subspecies characterized by complex morphotypes and poorly understood evolutionary relationships, thus an ideal model for investigating evolutionary dynamics over time. Using multiple methods, we sought...
Streptocarpus ionanthus (Gesneriaceae) comprise nine herbaceous subspecies, endemic to Kenya and Tanzania. The evolution of Str. ionanthus is perceived as complex due to morphological heterogeneity and unresolved phylogenetic relationships. Our study seeks to understand the molecular variation within Str. ionanthus using a phylogenomic approach. We...
Morella salicifolia (Myricaceae) is a dioecious plant of medicinal value. This study sequenced the complete chloroplast genome sequence of Morella salicifolia, the second to be sequenced in Myricaceae. The genome is 159,010 bp in size, composed of two copies of inverted repeat (IR) regions (26,045bp each) separating a large single-copy (LSC) region...
Streptocarpus teitensis (Gesneriaceae) is an endemic species listed as critically endangered in the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) red list of threatened species. However, the sequence and genome information of this species remains to be limited. In this article, we present the complete chloroplast genome structure of Strepto...
The family Balsaminaceae, which consists of the economically important genus Impatiens and the monotypic genus Hydrocera, lacks a reported or published complete chloroplast genome sequence. Therefore, chloroplast genome sequences of the two sister genera are significant to give insight into the phylogenetic position and understanding the evolution...
