Hydatellaceae identified as a new branch near the base of the angiosperm phylogenetic tree
TLDR
It is shown that Hydatellaceae, a small family of dwarf aquatics that were formerly interpreted as monocots, are instead a highly modified and previously unrecognized ancient lineage of angiosperms, indicating that water lilies are part of a larger lineage that evolved more extreme and diverse modifications for life in an aquatic habitat than previously recognized.
Phylogeny of Cyperaceae based on DNA sequence data - a new rbcL analysis
TLDR
A parsimony analysis was carried out using all rbcL sequences currently available for Cyperaceae, including data for two new genera, with one outcome may be that only two subfamilies, Mapanioideae and Cyperoideae, are recognized.
Phylogenetic analysis of Pinguicula (Lentibulariaceae): chloroplast DNA sequences and morphology support several geographically distinct radiations.
TLDR
Five well-supported, major lineages within the genus Pinguicula are revealed, which largely reflect radiations in clearly defined geographic regions, whereas most previously recognized sections of the genus are shown to be para- or polyphyletic.
Morphological and molecular data for Australian Hebeloma species do not support the generic status of Anamika
The first collection of a macrofungal agaric species, with morphological features similar to already described Anamika species, has been found in association with animal bones in north Queensland,
Phylogeny of Abildgaardieae (Cyperaceae) inferred from its and trnL-F data
TLDR
The relationships and limits of tribes Abildgaardieae and Arthrostylideae and their genera were evaluated across 49 representative species using parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses of ITS (nuclear ribosomal) and trnL-F (plastid) DNA sequence data separately and combined.
Phylogenetic relationships of Carpha and its relatives (Schoeneae, Cyperaceae) inferred from chloroplast trnL intron and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer sequences.
TLDR
Cl cladistic analyses based on chloroplast trnL intron and trnF intergenic spacer sequence data were undertaken to estimate phylogenetic relationships in and around Carpha and revealed the non-monophyletic status of Costularia and of Schoenus, and indicated the phylogenetically relationships of species within Carpha.
Ecdeiocoleaceae and Joinvilleaceae, sisters of Poaceae (Poales): evidence from rbcL and matK data
TLDR
Data is provided to support the alternative topology of (Ecdeiocoleaceae, Joinvilleaceae) as sister to Poaceae and also help to resolve the position of Flagellariaceae.
Characterization of 11 Juglandaceae Genotypes Based on Morphology, cpDNA, and RAPD
TLDR
The chloroplast DNA in the trnL-trnF region indicated a close relationship between Juglans species, and the close- ness of the investigated spe cies predicts interspecifi c graft not only within the Asian and American groups, but also between them.
