- ... While a number of studies have suggested that temperate plants typically have larger genome sizes (GS) than tropical ones, recent analyses have not convincingly confirmed this. We have selected the widely distributed Caesalpinia Group (Leguminosae) to test this hypothesis. We used flow cytometry to estimate the amount of DNA in the haploid genome (C-values) of 40 species of the Caesalpinia Group, ...

- ... The Zambezian Floristic Region (ZFR) in south-central Africa experienced major environmental changes in the past and is nowadays home to numerous woody taxa of wet-tropical provenance. Within many taxa, we observe adaptations to multiple habitats, but know little about their environmental drivers. In order to gain knowledge about adaptation and speciation processes in this region, we chose the tre ...
