A Bioinformatics Pipeline To Study The Dynamics Of Retrotransposons In Grass Evolution 2017 1317 Transposable elements (TEs) are repetitive sequences found within all eukaryotic genomes and possess the genetic mechanisms necessary to move locations within their host. The repetitive fraction of plant genomes has historically been viewed as “junk ...
Developing Genetic Markers In Vetiver (Chrysopogon Zizanioides) 2017 1818 Vetiver (Chrysopogon zizanioides) is an introduced species that has the potential to become invasive in the U.S. This tropical grass is a member of the tribe Andropogoneae (Poaceae), which contains many aggressive weeds, including Imperata, Miscanthu...
Identifying Evolutionary Significant Units in Spiraea virginiana 2017 789 Spiraea virginiana Brit. (Rosaceae) is a rare clonal shrub found in isolated populations within the Cumberland, Tennessee, and Ohio River drainages. This species has been listed as federally endangered since June 1990 due to anthropogenically induced...
The Development Of Microsatellite Markers For The Culturally And Economically Significant Plant, Allium Tricoccum Ait. 2019 366 Allium tricoccum Ait. is an herbaceous monocot in the Amaryllidaceae family and is most commonly known as a ramp or wild leek. Allium tricoccum is traditionally used in Appalachian cultures, but it has gained the attention of the general public over ...
Development Of Microsatellite Markers To Investigate Recurrent Polyploidy Within The Genus Dicentra 2019 689 The genus Dicentra (Bernhardi 1833) is a small group of herbaceous plants containing approximately 12 species found in North America and eastern Asia. Three species: D. eximia, D. cucullaria, and D. canadensis, display an interesting polyploid series...
Cytogenetic Tools To Investigate The Compilospecies 2018 706 A compilospecies is defined as a genetically aggressive taxa that “steals” or incorporates the genomes of other taxa via introgressive hybridization. This concept was first defined in Bothriochloa, Capillipedium, and Dichanthium (the BCD clade). With...
Assessing Reproductive Potential In A Federally Listed Species: Differential Staining For Pollen Viability In Spiraea Virginiana 2018 523 Spiraea virginiana Britton (Rosaceae) is a rare federally-listed, clonal shrub that inhabits riparian zones within the Ohio River drainage. The species often occurs in areas of high disturbance and predominantly uses asexual reproduction to propagate...
The Development Of A Data Driven Management Plan For The Tater Hill Plant Preserve 2018 451 The Tater Hill Plant Preserve was established to protect rare and state-endangered plant species and their habitats. The acquisition and management of plant habitats have successfully increased population growth and limit external negative anthropoge...
Detecting Augmentation In A Metapopulation Of The Federally Endangered Southern Appalachian Endemic Geum Radiatum Michx. 2023 115 Populations of rare and endemic plants are often small and fragmented, and they face numerous threats to their persistence. Many of these species exhibit lower levels of genetic diversity and are at risk of inbreeding and its downstream consequences....
Conserving & Assessing The Health Of Gray’s Lily (Lilium Grayi S. Watson) 2023 239 Lilium grayi S. Watson (Liliaceae), Gray’s Lily, is a threatened perennial herb endemic to high elevations in the Southern Appalachians of Virginia, North Carolina, and Tennessee, and now restricted to 46 extant occurrences in 15 counties. A Federal ...
Investigations Of The Forgotten Geum: Genetic Diversity And Population Biology Of Geum Geniculatum Michaux, Bent Avens 2019 718 Geum geniculatum Michx., bent avens, is a perennial herb that is endemic to high elevations of three mountaintops between North Carolina and Tennessee. While geographically restricted, some populations have been reported to have thousands of individu...
Comparative Genomics Of Transposable Elements In The Grasses 2020 607 Transposable elements (TE’s) are the most abundant genetic loci found in eukaryotic genomes and often occupy more than 70% of the genome landscape. These genetic elements were first described in maize (Zea mays) and have been found in all eukaryotic ...
