Data from: Linking DNA methylation with performance in a woody plant species

Rafael G. Albaladejo, Clara Parejo-Farnés, Encarnación Rubio-Pérez, Sofia Nora & Abelardo Aparicio
Epigenetic factors are increasingly being viewed as important mechanisms in organism performance. However, advances in plant epigenetics rely mostly on studies of short-lived model or cultivated species and there is a current gap in knowledge on wild plants, especially on woody plant species, that still needs to be addressed via empirical studies. Through a greenhouse experiment we compared the genetic (microsatellites) and epigenetic (methylation-sensitive amplified polymorphisms) variation in mother plants and their open-pollinated offspring of...

Data from: Two New Species of Aira (Poaceae) from the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands

Maria Angeles Ortiz Herrera, Llorenç Sáez, Javier López-Alvarado, Pere Fraga, Regina Berjano & Carlos Romero-Zarco
Two new diploid species, Aira minoricensis and Aira hercynica are described and illustrated, along with chromosome counts, risk assessment, distribution and habitat, phenology, and comparisons with morphologically similar species. A comparative table and a key for the species of Aira for the Iberian Peninsula and the Balearic Islands are provided to assist in the identification of these overlooked species, and their relationships to other taxa are discussed.
