A DNA barcode for land plants
DNA barcoding involves sequencing a standard region of DNA as a tool for species identification. However, there has been no agreement on which region(s) should be used for barcoding land plants. ToExpand

An expanded plastid DNA phylogeny of Orchidaceae and analysis of jackknife branch support strategy.
An expanded plastid DNA phylogeny for Orchidaceae was generated from sequences of rbcL and matK for representatives of all five subfamilies. The data were analyzed using equally weighted parsimony,Expand

An overview of the phylogenetic relationships within Epidendroideae inferred from multiple DNA regions and recircumscription of Epidendreae and Arethuseae (Orchidaceae).
Phylogenetic relationships within the epidendroid orchids with emphasis on tribes Epidendreae and Arethuseae were assessed with parsimony and model-based analyses of individual and combined DNAExpand

A phylogenetic study of Laeliinae (Orchidaceae) based on combined nuclear and plastid DNA sequences.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Laeliinae are a neotropical orchid subtribe with approx. 1500 species in 50 genera. In this study, an attempt is made to assess generic alliances based on molecular phylogeneticExpand

A preliminary study of genetic variation in populations of Monstera adansonii var. klotzschiana (Araceae) from North-East Brazil, estimated with AFLP molecular markers.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS This study sought genetic evidence of long-term isolation in populations of Monstera adansonii var. klotzschiana (Araceae), a herbaceous, probably outbreeding, humid forestExpand

Molecular and cytological examination of Calopogon (Orchidaceae, Epidendroideae): circumscription, phylogeny, polyploidy, and possible hybrid speciation.
The orchid genus Calopogon R.Br. (Orchidaceae), native to eastern North America and the northern Caribbean, currently contains five species and up to three varieties. Using nuclear internalExpand
