Transfer of Dodecatheon to Primula (Primulaceae)

, : Transfer of Dodecatheon to Primula (Primulaceae). Brittonia 59(1): 79-82

Phylogenies inferred from both chloroplast and nuclear DNA regions have placed the small genus Dodecatheon (the shooting stars; 17 spp.) among the descendants of the most recent common ancestor of Primula (the primroses; ca. 430 spp.). This is congruent with conclusions previously derived from morphology and cytology. We illustrate how failure to formalize this information in the circumscription of Primula might have impeded understanding of the evolution of distyly (as seen in Primula) and buzz-pollination (as seen in Dodecatheon). To avoid future confusion, we make new combinations for Dodecatheon in Primula, and erect Primula sect. Dodecatheon in Primula subgenus Auriculastrum for the taxa from Dodecatheon.

A pathological study of tibial bone characteristics in broiler chickens was undertaken by feeding different levels of calcium (Ca 6, 7, 8, and 9 g/kg diet) and non-phytin phosphorus (NPP 3, 3.5, 4 and 4.5 g/kg diet) from day 1 to 21 days of age.

Hemagglutinin (H) gene of two CDV isolates, the Haku93 and Haku00 strains, from masked palm civets was molecularly analyzed. H genes of both two CDVs contained one open reading frame encoding 607 amino acids. Nucleotide and predicted amino acid se...
