A new subtribal classification of the tribe Anthemideae (Compositae)
TLDR
A new subtribal classification of the Compositae-Anthemideae is presented based on phylogenetic reconstructions for sequence information of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) for 103 of the 111 accepted genera of the tribe.
Temporal and spatial diversification of Circum‐Mediterranean Compositae‐Anthemideae
TLDR
The reconstructions suggest that the ancestor of this clade diverged from the basal African lineages in the late Early Miocene, presumably in conjunction with the collision of the African and Eurasian platform through the Arabian plate.
A phylogenetic analysis of Primulaceae s.l. based on internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA sequence data
TLDR
The phylogenetic reconstructions based on plastid gene sequences found the Primulaceae family to be paraphyletic and resolved the positions of some genera, but there is evidence against the monophyly of the large genera Primula, Androsace, and Lysimachia.
A phylogenetic analysis of Chamaemelum Mill. (Compositae: Anthemideae) and related genera based upon nrDNA ITS and cpDNA trnL/trnF IGS sequence variation
TLDR
The results suggest that Chamaemelum in its traditional circumscription is at best paraphyletic, with Cladanthus arabicus consistently nested within it and the correct classification of Santolina africana as a member of the genus Santolina is further demonstrated.
On the origin of European lilies: phylogenetic analysis of Lilium section Liriotypus (Liliaceae) using sequences of the nuclear ribosomal transcribed spacers
TLDR
The sequences of the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region were analysed for 28 representatives of Lilium, one Nomocharis species and three outgroup taxa of Lilieae (Notholirion, Fritillaria and Cardiocrinum) and confirmed that L. Liriotypus is monophyletic only if L. bulbiferum is excluded and placed in L. sect.
The position ofCastrilanthemum Vogt & Oberprieler and the phylogeny of Mediterranean Anthemideae (Compositae) as inferred from nrDNA ITS and cpDNAtrnL/trnF IGS sequence variation
TLDR
Results demonstrate that subtribes Achilleinae, Leucantheminae, and Matricariinae sensu Bremer & Humphries are non-monophyletic and a W Mediterranean centre of diversification is suggested, however, its sister-group relationships within the basal grade of generic groups remain unclear.
Evolutionary history, biogeography and eco-climatological differentiation of the genus Anthemis L. (Compositae, Anthemideae) in the circum-Mediterranean area.
TLDR
Large-scale differentiation patterns triggered by geological forces appear to have influenced the evolutionary history of the genus Anthemis in a rather constant manner over the last 12 Myr, whereas climatic forces seem to have played an important role in two phases of the radiation process.
Genetic diversity in natural and anthropogenic inland populations of salt‐tolerant plants: random amplified polymorphic DNA analyses of Aster tripolium L. (Compositae) and Salicornia ramosissima
TLDR
Eight populations of Aster tripolium and six of Salicornia ramosissima from inland, naturally salt‐contaminated habitats and anthropogenic salt‐polluted sites in central Germany were analysed using random amplified polymorphic DNA markers to investigate the patterns of genetic variation.
Phylogenetic relationships in Anthemis L. (Compositae, Anthemideae) based on nrDNA ITS sequence variation
TLDR
The results suggest that the genus Anthemis, in its traditional circumscription, is not monophyletic due to the consistent placement of a member of Tripleurospermum amidst the Anthemis representatives.
