Recent phylogenetic studies have shown that Saxifraga, as currently understood, must be divided into two genera: Saxifraga L. sensu stricto and Micranthes Haw. To better understand the evolutionary history of these two genera, we performed phylogenetic analyses inferred from the nuclear ribosomal sequences from the internal transcribed spacer and t...

The orophilous plant, Ranunculus parnassiifolius L., is a polyploid complex that is widespread throughout the southern European mountains, where at least five taxa have traditionally been recognized. The aim of this study was to test whether R. parnassiifolius subsp. cabrerensis should be treated as an independent species of the R. parnassiifolius...

The Cantabrian brown bear population, confined in the Cantabrian mountains of northwestern Spain, is a small and threatened population (300-350 individuals), and isolated from other populations over 300 km. Like other southern subpopulations, these bears are elusive and have a markedly vegetarian diet, including fruit trees, often grown by humans....

A systematic study of Iberian Angelica species (Apiaceae ) based on molecular markers
Article
The Atlantic territories of western Europe and their surrounding areas are cohabited by two different species of ivies (Hedera), which are morphologically very similar, although they present different ploidy levels: Hedera helix (2x) and Hedera hibernica (4x). Concerning the northwest Atlantic Iberian territories and their surrounding areas, there...

The genus Helosciadium has six species of which three have been identified in Portugal: H. nodiflorum, frequent and abundant in much of the territory, and H. inundatum and H. repens, with a scattered distribution in Portugal. In the present study, a new species, Helosciadium milfontinum, a seriously threatened plant endemic, rare and scarce that gr...

Endemicity is a key consideration for conservation, and taxa that are endemic to a single country are vaulable conservation targets. In this study, we investigate endemic species of the genus Campanula in northern Iberian Peninsula based on sequences of nrDNA (internal transcribed spacer, ITS) and plastid regions (rbcL, trnL-F and trnS-G) and addit...
Article
Recent phylogeographical study of Eurasian Nuphar species has revealed that after the subgenus diversificated in eastern Asia, N. pumila and N. lutea extended westwards to Siberia and further into Europe. However, isolated Nuphar populations from southwestern Europe were not included in previous phylogeographic study and their history remained unkn...

A la vista de la información disponible sobre la diver-sidad de los alisos en el ámbito atlántico ibérico, se recogieron muestras de aliso en la mayoría de las cuencas del citado territorio que están siendo estu-diadas por nuestro grupo de trabajo. Un primer aná-lisis de las secuencias de los espaciadores intergéni-cos del ADN cloroplásticos usados...

En Asturias, del género Lemna L. se conocen hasta ahora dos especies: L. gibba L. y L. minor L. (Fernández Prieto et al., 2014a). En el verano del pasado año se localizó en la Charca de Arnao (Castropol, Asturias) otra lenteja de agua de hojas muy pequeñas que ha sido identificada como Lem-na minuta Kunth, in Humboldt et al., Nov. Gen. Sp. 1: 372 (...

Saxifraga cuneifolia L. (sect. Gymnopera, Saxifragaceae) is a plant distributed in the main mountain ranges of southern Europe, from the eastern Pyrenees to the eastern Carpathian. Currently, two subspecies are recognized based on morphological characteristics: S. cuneifolia subsp. cuneifolia grows in the Maritime Alps and North Apennines and S. cu...

River corridors are fundamental elements for the protection of biodiversity. They are ecological connectors, water regulators and are related to several ecosystem services. LIFE Fluvial project aims to improve the grade of conservation of the river corridors in Natura 2000 network of several Atlantic basins of the NW of the Iberian Peninsula. Vario...

Fluvial corridors are fundamental ecological elements of connection between mountain areas and lowlands including the coast. They are essential for the mobility and dispersal of numerous species, favoring the plant and animal species genetic exchange between populations. Fluvial corridors are areas of interest for the networks of protected spaces c...

Genista sanabrensis Valdés Berm., Castrov. & Casaseca (Fabaceae) is an endemic and rare species of the Northwestern Iberian Peninsula. Despite its limited distribution, the species is locally abundant and therefore not categorized by the IUCN criteria as threatened at the national level. However, comprehensive studies on the genetic diversity and s...
Article
The genus Pimpinella L. comprises about 150 species, being one of the largest genera within the family Apiaceae (subfamily Apioideae). Previous molecular phylogenetic studies have shown that Pimpinella is a taxonomically complex group. In this study, evolutionary relationships among representatives from Western Europe have been inferred from phylog...
Article
Background: The disjunct distribution patterns of a taxon may arise when previously continuous distribution ranges are fragmented. The phenomena of vicariance and dispersal, together with hybridisation as an important source of genetic variation in natural populations, can play an important role for structuring the distribution of taxa. Aims: We in...

Major changes in the diagnosis, taxonomy and chorology of Cantabrian brooms with glabrous calyces and pubescent legumes, classified as sect. Spartopsis of the genus Cytisus (Fabaceae), have been recently implemented. Two species of this section occur in the Cantabrian region: Cytisus cantabricus and C. grandiflorus. A detailed study of the plants u...

Carrière in 1890 published 34 names and 33 descriptions of a collection of live ivy plants. In this article we present the analysis of his work from a nomenclatural perspective. As a result, the legitimacy and even the validity of specific and some of the infraspecific names published in the work are questioned. In addition to this, and considering...

Genista anglica represents a widely distributed group of shrubs in the Iberian Peninsula, as well as in the North of the Moroccan Mountains, the South of Italy and in most oceanic territories of Western Europe, with its northern limit in Sweden. Up to five different species within the group have been described in these territories: Genista ancistro...

The infrageneric taxonomy and evolution of Ranunculus are still not well understood. In this regard, we investigated the origin and genetic diversity of the Iberian endemic plant Ranunculus bupleuroides s.l. by analysis of nuclear internal transcribed spacers (ITS) and plastid (rpl32-trnL, rps16-trnQ, trnK-matK, ycf6-psbM) sequence data. Phylogenet...

Petrocoptis is a small genus of chasmophytic plants endemic to the Iberian Peninsula, with some localized populations in the French Pyrenees. Within the genus, a dozen species have been recognized based on morphological diversity, most of them with limited distribution area, in small populations and frequently with potential threats to their surviv...

Como resultado preliminar de estas prospecciones se colige que Ulmus laevis aparece naturalizado en la cuenca del Narcea en una población continua desde las proximidades de Cangas del Narcea hasta su desembocadura en el Nalón siendo más abundante en las proximidades de Corias, en donde aparenta tener un comportamiento agresivo. Como ejemplo, en una...

The Cantabrian Fringe, in northern Spain, is a narrow strip of mountainous territory stretching along approximately 600 km from the Pyrenees in Navarre to the northwestern corner of the Iberian Peninsula (Galicia). It has a temperate climate (with summer rainfall) and biogeographically it is related to the Atlantic and Central Europe (Eurosiberian...

The Balkan Peninsula, characterized by high rates of endemism, is recognised as one of the most diverse and species-rich areas of Europe. However, little is known about the origin of Balkan endemics. The present study addresses the phylogenetic position of the Balkan endemic Ranunculus wettsteinii, as well as its taxonomic status and relationship w...
