Article
Full-text available
The analysis of plant elemental composition and the underlying factors affecting its variation are a current hot topic in ecology. Ecological adaptation to atypical soils may shift plant elemental composition. However, no previous studies have evaluated its relevance against other factors such as phylogeny, climate or individual soil conditions. We...

During the last decades, phylogeography has transformed the ways to analyze and understand plant diversity and biogeography. The repeated and increasingly detailed articles made from DNA data with phylogeographical procedures and algorithms have revolutionized biodiversity research, particularly on biodiversity conservation. This paper presents a s...

Unusual dolomite substrates present a phenomenon known as dolomitophily, which refers to the specificity of the flora that grows on them. Within the dolomitic flora, one of the most widespread plants in Spain is the characteristic species Pterocephalus spathulatus (Lag.) Coult., which forms whitish prostrate thymes. The present study focused on the...

Colombia is the country with the highest number of orchid species (4270), whose optimal habitat is cold and humid forests. However, the outlook for conservation is alarming, considering that deforestation is causing the loss of millions of hectares of forests. This situation has led to the existence of 206 endangered orchid species. Therefore, this...

Article
Conservation genetics is a well‐established and essential scientific field in the toolkit of conservation planning, management, and decision‐making. Within its framework, phylogeography allows the definition of conservation strategies, especially in threatened endemic plants. Gypsum and salt-rich outcrops constitute a model example of an edaphic is...

For botanists and ecologists, the close link between some plants and substrates, such as serpentine or gypsum, is well known. However, the relationship between dolomite and its flora has been much less studied, due to various causes. Its diffuse separation from limestone and the use of a vague approach and terminology that, until now, no one has tr...

To be considered “sustainable”, a city must be built with materials whose extraction and processing are not very aggressive with the environment and its ecological footprint palliated as much as possible. One of the materials most used in construction is the plaster. The gypsum outcrops, although traditionally have been poorly valued, have geomorph...

La investigación sobre plantas vasculares asociadas a suelos especiales ha atraído desde hace mucho tiempo el interés de botánicos y ecólogos. La flora asociada a sustratos ultramáficos (serpentinas y otras rocas relacionadas) ha sido una de las más investigadas, probablemente por su riqueza en endemismos, adaptaciones muy marcadas y la posibilidad...

Biodiversity has a spatial basis, this is the reason why a geographical basis at a detailed scale is absolutely essential for this study. In the case of the study of gypsophily (i.e., the link between plants and gypsum soils) at a global scale, a cartography of gypsum outcrops worldwide is essential. In order to compile information on gypsum outcro...

High mountain habitats are particularly susceptible to climate changes, which have been classified as the key drivers of biodiversity extinction. Plant species have proved to be a suitable surrogate for estimating the state of an area’s total biodiversity, and the Red List Index (RLI) is one of the key global Convention on Biological Diversity Indi...

Habitats with alkaline edaphic substrates are often associated with plant speciation and diversification. The tribe Alysseae, in the family Brassicaceae, epitomizes this evolutionary trend. In this lineage, some genera, like Hormathophylla, can serve as a good case for testing the evolutionary framework. This genus is centered in the western Medite...

Plants that show a strict link with gypsum soils, gypsophytes, constitute a major current research topic in the field of plant ecology. Among the hypotheses proposed to explain this close relationship, the nutritional imbalances that this type of soil implies for plants stands out. According to this hypothesis, gypsophytes would be able to accumula...

Our understanding of the richness and uniqueness of the flora growing on gypsum substrates in Italy has grown significantly since the 19th century and, even today, new plant species are still being discovered. However, the plants and plant communities, growing on gypsum substrates in Italy, are still a relatively unknown subject. The main aim of th...

Gypseous substrates are well-recognised as supporting distinctive and unique flora assemblages, including numerous gypsum endemic (gypsophile) species. Along with these, others are also frequent although their presence is not restricted to gypsum; they show a clear preference for them (gypsocline). While this phenomenon (gypsophily) has been studie...

Interest in plants growing on special substrates has increased considerably in recent years. The studies on halophytes (plants restricted to saline soils) and serpentinophytes (those restricted to ultramafic rocks) are good evidence of this trend. Research on the phenomenon of gypsophily has not been developed as widely as the other two before-ment...

Despite the biological, ecological and conservational interest of halo-gypsophytes, which are frequently found in endangered ecosystems, such plant species have received little attention from a phylogeographical point of view.

The relationship between plants and the different types of rocks has been known at least since the sixteenth century when Caesalpino linked the existence of the endemic Alyssum bertolonii to the Italian serpentines. In the seventeenth century, Spanish botanists Asso and Cavanilles also point out the same soil-plant connection in the Iberian gypsum,...

The link between plants and gypsum soil dates back to the 19th century. In recent years, an increasing number of articles have dealt with this very special type of flora from various perspectives. The existence of crusts on the soil, xericity and nutritional imbalances that these plants – some of which are mineral accumulators – are submitted to, h...

The taxonomic status of Hormathophylla baetica and its phylogenetic relationships to other Hormatophylla species are the subject of controversy. As part of an ongoing study on the genus Hormathophylla, we find that molecular, morphological and biogeographical evidence supports the placement of H. baetica as a subspecies of H. cochleata. We also dis...

The strict relationship between plants and particular types of substrate has long been known to botanists and plant ecologists who have dealt with this issue. The peculiar flora growing on Italian gypsum substrates has been underlined since the nineteenth century (1, 2, 3). The concept of plant gypsophily can be defined as the exclusiveness or mark...
