Everywhere but Antarctica: using a supertree to understand the diversity and distribution of the Compositae.
TLDR
The results of molecular phylogenetic studies of members of tribes Helenieae, Heliantheae, and Eupatorieae (Asteraceae) and General systematics and proposed taxonomic changes in current classification are presented.
Generic Delimitation and Phylogeny of the Subtribe Centaureinae (Asteraceae): A Combined Nuclear and Chloroplast DNA Analysis
Abstract Taxonomic complexity has hindered the partitioning of the artificial genus Centaurea, even though it has long been recognized as a polyphyletic assemblage. On the basis of morphology, pollen
Reconstructing the evolution and biogeographic history of tribe Cardueae (Compositae).
TLDR
Most diversification events within Cardueae are related to the continuous cycles of area connection and division between the Anatolian microplate and the western Mediterranean Basin during the Oligocene-Miocene and with the uplift of the Himalayan range from the Miocene onward.
THE CARDUEAE (COMPOSITAE) REVISITED: INSIGHTS FROM ITS, trnL-trnF, AND matK NUCLEAR AND CHLOROPLAST DNA ANALYSIS1, 2
Abstract The new outline of relationships in basal branches of the family Compositae Giseke confirms that the sister group to the tribe Cardueae Cass. are not Mutisieae Cass., but rather a group of
Phylogenetic relationships in tribe Cardueae (Asteraceae) based on ITS sequences
TLDR
DNA sequences of the internal transcribed spacers of the nuclear ribosomal RNA genes of 35 taxa are analyzed to reconstruct the phylogeny of Cardueae and assess the positions of Echinopsidinae and Carlininae, the circumscription of the Carduinae-Centaureinae complex, and the limits of Centaurea and related genera.
Natural Delineation, Molecular Phylogeny and Floral Evolution in Campanula
TLDR
Both Bayesian and Parsimony analyses indicate that the main morphological characters used in classifications, such as flower shape and capsule dehiscence, have arisen in parallel.
Centaurea revisited: A molecular survey of the Jacea group.
TLDR
The results show that the sectional classification in current use needs major revision, with many old sections being merged into larger ones and most recent groups in the eastern Mediterranean clade are not resolved and reticulation in the western Mediterranean group of sections makes phylogenetic relationships within these two groups somewhat obscure.
Taxonomic problems in Carthamus (Asteraceae): RAPD markers and sectional classification
TLDR
The results confirm that methodological problems posed by RAPD markers can be avoided by careful laboratory procedures and appropriate data analyses and suggest that this kind of marker is useful at low taxonomic levels and is, furthermore, complementary to DNA sequence analysis.
