Phylogeny and classification of Pinus
We used chloroplast DNA sequences from matK and rbcL to infer the phylogeny for 101 of the approximately 111 species of Pinus (Pinaceae). At the level of subsection and above, the cpDNA tree isExpand

Fossil calibration of molecular divergence infers a moderate mutation rate and recent radiations for pinus.
Silent mutation rate estimates for Pinus vary 50-fold, ranging from angiosperm-like to among the slowest reported for plants. These differences either reflect extraordinary genomic processes orExpand

Multiplex sequencing of plant chloroplast genomes using Solexa sequencing-by-synthesis technology
Organellar DNA sequences are widely used in evolutionary and population genetic studies, however, the conservative nature of chloroplast gene and genome evolution often limits phylogenetic resolutionExpand

Use of simultaneous analyses to guide fossil-based calibrations of Pinaceae phylogeny
Uncertainties in the age and phylogenetic position of Pinaceae fossils present significant obstacles to our understanding of the timing of diversification in the family. We demonstrate thatExpand

Variation in the nrDNA ITS of Pinus subsection Cembroides: implications for molecular systematic studies of pine species complexes.
The pinyon pines (Pinus subsection Cembroides), distributed in semiarid regions of the western United States and Mexico, include a mixture of relictual and more recently evolved taxa. To investigateExpand

Phylogenetics of Helotiales and Rhytismatales based on partial small subunit nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences
Abstract The evolutionary sequence leading to the differentiation of ascomatal and ascal types in the Euascomycetes remains poorly understood. To investigate the placement of the inoperculateExpand

Internal transcribed spacer region evolution in Larix and Pseudotsuga (Pinaceae).
The nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region has been characterized in the sister genera Larix and Pseudotsuga (Pinaceae). Complete sequences were obtained for sevenExpand

Phylogenetics of Pinus Subsections Cembroides and Nelsoniae Inferred from cpDNA Sequences
Abstract We sequenced chloroplast DNA from the matK, rbcL, and rpl16 regions to infer interrelationships within the pinyon pines (Pinus subsections Cembroides and Nelsoniae). Pinyons, together withExpand

Remote sensing data can improve predictions of species richness by stacked species distribution models: a case study for Mexican pines
Aim Remote sensing data have been used in a growing number of studies to directly predict species richness or to improve the performance of species distribution models (SDMs), but their suitabilityExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships and Species Delimitation in Pinus Section Trifoliae Inferrred from Plastid DNA
Recent diversification followed by secondary contact and hybridization may explain complex patterns of intra- and interspecific morphological and genetic variation in the North American hard pinesExpand
