Article
A revision of the 17 annual species of Astragalus L. occurring in Turkey is presented. A determination key is provided together with complete descriptions, distribution maps, illustrations of diagnostic floral characters, notes on geography and ecology and an enumeration of all Turkish specimens located (© 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Wei...
Article
Astragalus ghanbarianii Maassoumi, Podlech & Zarre and A. nervifolius Maassoumi, Podlech & Zarre, two new species of Astragalus sect. Campylanthus Bunge (Fabaceae) from Iran, are described and illustrated. Because of the considerable changes in the delimitation of this section, a new diagnostic key to its species is presented. Moreover, A. susianus...
Article
Cross sections of petioles in 35 species of Astragalus mainly belonging to sect. Rhacophorus were studied for circumscription of natural groups within the section and reliable characters in delimiting polymorphic species. The following characters were determined to be informative: number of parenchymatous cell layers in pith, diameter of median scl...
Article
Astragalus assadabadensis F. Ghahremani. & Podlech, endemic to Alvand Mt., Hamadan province, Iran, is described as a new species and illustrated. The new species belongs to Astragalus section Hymenostegis and is related to A. bradosticus
Article
While preparing the account of As- tragalus L. (Fabaceae) for the Flora of China, Vol- ume 10, it was noticed that one species, A. yume- nensis S. B. Ho, described from Gansu Province in 1983, was invalidly named because two types (one flowering and one fruiting) were designated. The name is validated here, with the fruiting specimen designated as...
Article
The systematic position of Astragalus semnanensis is studied. Morphological and micromorphological features of this species are not in accordance with the old position of this species as a member of A. sect. Leucocercis. Within A. subgen. Astragalus this species is intermediate between A. sect. Acanthophace and A. sect. Megalocystis, but it shows c...

... The delimitation and subdivision of the genus are currently very confused because of its sheer size (ca. 3000 species) and the large variability of the morphological features, habit and habitats (Maassoumi 1998;Wojciechowski et al. 1999;Taeb et al. 2012;Podlech and Zarre 2013;Chaudhary et al. 2008;Azani et al. 2017;Zarre and Azani 2013). ...
... . Due to the large size of the Astragalus, infrageneric classification can be very helpful for better understanding of the diversity within this genus (Zarre & Podlech, 2001). In first conclusive subgeneric classification of the genus, Bunge described about 791 species in 9 subgenera and 102 sections (Bunge, 1868(Bunge, & 1869. ...
... The section Uliginosi is represented in Turkey with 2 species, namely Astragalus falcatus Lam. and A. odoratus Lam.; in Iran with 1; in the former USSR with 7; in Azerbaijan with 2; in Armenia with 2; in Syria with 1; in China with 3 and in Japan with 2 (Gontscharov et al., 1946;Chamberlain and Matthews, 1970;Maassoumi, 1998) There are some reports of the family Fabaceae based on anatomy (Metcalfe and Chalk, 1957;Çobanoğlu, 1989;Haddad and Barnet, 1989;Evren and Çobanoğlu, 1993;Pirani et al., 2006;Mehrabian et al., 2007;Saghi et al., 2015), palynology (Tewari and Nair, 1979;Perveen and Qaiser, 1998;Simons and Chinnappa, 2004;Akan et al., 2005;Ekici et al., 2005;Pınar et al., 2009;Al-Ghamadi et al., 2013;Çeter et al., 2013;Bagheri et al., 2019) and micromorphology (Vural et al., 2008;Karaman et al., 2009;Mourad and Sharawy, 2010;Grohar et al., 2016;Metin et al., 2018). Mehrabian et al. (2007) studied the petiole anatomy of 24 Astragalus species belonging to the section Incani DC. from Iran and detected that petiole anatomy was an appropriate characteristic for taxonomical differentiation at species level. ...
