Article
Full-text available
A morphological description is provided for Chenopodium ucrainicum Mosyakin & Mandák (Chenopodiaceae / Amaranthaceae sensu APG), a new species allied to C. suecicum and C. ficifolium. At present this new species is reliably known from several localities in Ukraine (three areas in Kyiv city, one in Kyiv Region, one in Rivne Region), but it is probab...

Background Camelina sativa (gold-of-pleasure) is a traditional European oilseed crop and emerging biofuel source with high levels of desirable fatty acids. A twentieth century germplasm bottleneck depleted genetic diversity in the crop, leading to recent interest in using wild relatives for crop improvement. However, little is known about seed oil...

Full-text available
Climatic fluctuations in the Pleistocene caused glacial expansion-retraction cycles in Eurasia and other areas of the world. Consequences of these cycles, such as population expansion and subsequent subdivision, have been studied in many taxa at intraspecific population level across much of the Northern Hemisphere. However, the consequences for the...

Smith and Figueiredo, in their recent articles, raised important issues of getting rid of colonial legacy in botanical nomenclature. Some other politically motivated claims and proposals to amend the International Code of Nomenclature for algae, fungi, and plants (ICN) have also been published or discussed by some other authors. In particular, Smit...

New information is provided on the close dates of publication of the two generic names, Osmelia Thwaites (Nov 1858) and Stachycrater Turcz. (Sep-Oct 1858). We propose to conserve the name Osmelia against Stachycrater under Art. 14 of the ICN because we think that decision would best serve nomenclatural stability and would allow continued usage of t...

A formal proposal to conserve the name Aria against Chamaemespilus and Torminalis (all formerly treated in Sorbus s.l., Rosaceae). If this proposal is accepted, the name Aria will be the correct name for a combined genus including Chamaemespilus and Torminalis, but it will not preclude the use of the two latter generic names for those who would pre...

Some years ago, I visited the Kyiv Defense Line of 1941. I have drafted a poem about the Great Battle of Kyiv 1941. Now it is actual, again. Sorry, this poem is in Russian (my second native language, as well as Ukrainian), but I will try to translate it in English later. No surrender. We will stand. Period.

This is from my impressions of Chornobyl (Chernobyl) in 1987. In the village of Kopachi (which I visited with researchers of Dmytro Grodzinsky's team) there was a peculiar and impressive cherry tree in bloom, with several zones clearly visible on the tree: one (protected by the roof of a house) with numerous flowers, another with young leaves but a...

Chenopodium rugosum was described by Aellen in 1928, based on a specimen collected in Siberia by Arnell and deposited in the US Herbarium. For a long time, this Aellen's name was forgotten or ignored by the researchers, mainly because of the uncertain identity of that taxon and unavailability of its type. We report here the holotype of C. rugosum r...

Modern ideas about the role of epigenetic systems in the regulation of gene expression allow us to understand the mechanisms of vital activities in plants, such as genomic imprinting. It is important that genomic imprinting is known first and foremost for the endosperm, which not only provides an embryo with necessary nutrients, but also plays a sp...
