Phylogenetic classification of Ericaceae: Molecular and morphological evidence
A new classification of Ericaceae is presented based on phylogenetic analyses of nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequence data, morphology, anatomy, and embryology. Eight subfamilies and 20 tribes areExpand

An ordinal classification for the families of flowering plants
Recent cladistic analyses are revealing the phylogeny of flowering plants in increasing detail, and there is support for the monophyly of many major groups above the family level. With many elementsExpand

Relationships within Cupressaceae sensu lato: a combined morphological and molecular approach.
Parsimony analysis of matK and rbcL sequence data, together with a nonmolecular database, yielded a well-resolved phylogeny of Cupressaceae sensu lato. Monophyly of Cupressaceae sensu stricto is wellExpand

Relationships within Myrtaceae sensu lato based on a matK phylogeny
Abstract.Parsimony analysis of matK sequence data from 81 taxa representing 68 genera of Myrtaceae sensu lato, and a representative of each of three related families as outgroups, produced anExpand

Sapindales:Molecular delimitation and infraordinal groups
An analysis of rbcL sequence data for representatives of families of putative sapindalean/rutalean affinity identified a robust clade of core "sapindalean" taxa that is sister to representatives ofExpand

Myrtaceae revisited: a reassessment of infrafamilial groups.
Cladistic analyses are presented of matK sequence data as well as a nonmolecular database for an identical set of exemplar species chosen to represent the core genera or groups of genera inExpand

Pericarp structure and generic affinities in the Anacardiaceae
Pericarp structure is surveyed in 29 genera. Homologous regions termed exocarp, mesocarp and endocarp are established. While exocarp and mesocarp structure show some uniformity, there are two veryExpand

Familiar concepts and relationships in the conifers based on rbcL and matK sequence comparisons
Analysis of sequence data for the chloroplast encoded genes rbcL and matK for 40 taxa representing all conifer families and subfamilies, rooted on Ginkgo biloba, provides robust support for theExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships among the Genera of Taxodiaceae and Cupressaceae: Evidence from rbcL Sequences
DNA sequences from the plastid gene rbcL were used to assess relationships among genera of the conifer families Taxodiaceae and Cupressaceae s. str. Phylogenetic analyses produced four mostExpand

Generic relationships within and between the gymnosperm families Podocarpaceae and Phyllocladaceae based on an analysis of the chloroplast gene rbcL.
Analysis of sequences of the chloroplast gene rbcL for 76 taxa of Podocarpaceae (representing all genera except Parasitaxus) and five species of Phyllocladaceae were undertaken with respect to theirExpand
