Genome size (GS) is an important characteristic that may be helpful in delimitation of taxa, and multiple studies have shown correlations between intraspecific GS variation and morphological or environmental factors, as well as its geographical segregation. We estimated a relative GS (RGS) of 707 individuals from 162 populations of Dianthus sylvest...

The Balkan Peninsula played an important role in the evolution of many Mediterranean plants and served as a major source for post-Pleistocene colonisation of central and northern Europe. Its complex geo-climatic history and environmental heterogeneity significantly influenced spatiotemporal diversification and resulted in intricate phylogeographic...

The genus Festuca is one of the largest genera within the grass family. It is characterized by a complex taxonomy resulting from morphological complexity that includes, not only heteromorphism, but also convergent morphology of different species inhabiting similar environments. Additional taxonomical confusion is caused by the fact that some specie...

Alyssum austrodalmaticum was originally described as an endemic species from southern Croatia. It has been considered a dubious taxon because its holotype specimen got lost and because of the scant information contained in the protologue.

Project
Southeast Europe is one of the major centers of European biodiversity, primarily due to the fact that the Apennine and Balkan Peninsulas acted as the main glacial refuges of plant and animal species during the cyclical glacial and interglacial changes in the Quaternary. The influence of Pleistocene climate changes on the formation of intraspecific genetic variability of taxa on these peninsulas is still not sufficiently known, although recent research has confirmed the existence of the so-called. microrefusion for some plant groups in the Balkans (“refuges within refuges” hypothesis). As part of this project, we propose a comparative phylogeographic research that combines traditional (morphology and plastid DNA sequences) and modern approaches, such as next-generation sequencing "Restriction-site associated DNA sequencing", RADseq) and Habitat suitability modeling to discover the mechanisms that have contributed to the great biodiversity of southern Europe. The main goal of the proposed project is to investigate the evolutionary pathways and diversification of three ecologically divergent plant groups distributed on both sides of the Adriatic (amphi-Adriatic), ie on two southern European glacial refuges, the Apennine and Balkan Peninsulas. The project consists of four interconnected components. We will first reconstruct individual phylogeographies of Aurinia leucadea, A. sinuata, Festuca bosniaca, and Dianthus sylvestris groups on both peninsulas to gain insight into their evolution and reveal detailed patterns of genetic diversity of divergent lines. Aside from, we will investigate whether ecologically different groups responded uniformly or differently to Pleistocene climate change. Second, we will identify morphological variations in the study groups and examine whether morphological divergence corresponds to their genetic diversity and / or current taxonomy. Third, we will assess the ecological niches of the studied groups to discover their potential prevalence in the present and past, which indicates possible locations of refuges, and we will investigate the relationships between genetic and ecological differences of the observed plant groups. Fourth, we will examine the spatial and temporal congruence between the reconstructed phylogeographies and compare the obtained locations of glacial refuges as well as the trajectories of postglacial expansion pathways. Namely, we wonder if there are similar microrefusions in the Apennines like those discovered in the Western Balkans and the Iberian Peninsula, and whether the genetic structure and migration routes across the Adriatic Sea were consistent or different in ecologically different groups. The importance and strength of the proposed project is as follows: 1) the obtained high-resolution RADseq data will enable a comprehensive examination of natural variations in a wide natural environment, 2) the obtained results will be a direct contribution to the management and conservation of endemic and endangered species, and 3) Habitat benefit modeling will contribute to addressing intriguing questions that go beyond the study groups: how biodiversity originated in the Balkans and the Apennines, and what processes were involved in its creation.
Project
The proposed research aims are to explore evolutionary patterns within three amphi-Adriatic plant groups. We will thus reconstruct (1) genome size evolution within the exclusively diploid genus Aurinia (Brassicaceae), and explore polyploid evolution and genome size variation within (2) the Dianthus sylvestris group and (3) the Cerastium tomentosum group (both Caryophyllaceae). In addition, we will assess how the observed genome size variation is correlated with the distribution of the three species groups and phylogenetic lineages inferred with molecular data. All three species groups have their center of diversity in south-eastern Europe and exhibit an amphi-Adriatic distribution, but occupy different habitats and are found on diverse altitudinal ranges. To this end, climatic niche modelling will be used to explore how the past and present climates have influenced the distribution patterns and genetic diversification within the three groups. Our objectives within the proposed project are thus to 1) explore the variation of genome size in the genus Aurinia and to search for different cytotypes in the Dianthus sylvestris and the Cerastium tomentosum groups, 2) analyze genome size variation among and within the studied taxa and reconstruct its evolution on inferred phylogenies, 3) investigate geographical patterns of cytotype distributions as well as possible ecological correlations
Project
Here we propose a comparative phylogeographic study that combines traditional and brand-new approaches taking advantage of next-generation sequencing (Restriction-site associated DNA sequencing, RADseq) in order to uncover mechanisms that contributed to the high levels of south European biodiversity. Specifically, we aim to explore the origin and diversification of all species within the endemic south-eastern European plant genus Aurinia (Brassicaceae).
