Phylogenetic relationships and taxonomy of the Alyssum montanum - A. repens complex (Brassicaceae)

LPP-0085-06

Duration: 2006–2011

Research and Development Support Agency, Bratislava, Slovak Republic

The main aim of the proposed project is to address and resolve taxonomic questions and phylogenetic relationships within Alyssum montanum (Brassicaceae), which includes several taxa and cytotypes distributed in Europe. The project should clarify also relationships among A. montanum, A. repens and other species within the widely conceived A. montanumA. repens complex. Attention will be paid also to the origin of polyploids of this complex, their single vs. multiple origins, and possible co-occurrence of different cytotypes in mixed populations. Several taxa of this group are local endemics, often endangered due to the decrease of the number of localities and convenient habitats. Detailed knowledge of their taxonomic status, distribution, evolution, etc. is a basic prerequisite for the effective protection. The family Brassicaceae is important from both the economical and scientific points of view. Besides many economically important species, it includes also a model species Arabidopsis thaliana and other taxa, which are currently subject of intensive studies. The genus Alyssum definitely belongs to the less studied ones, in spite of the fact that it comprises numerous species and occupies a wide distribution area.
