Strong and robust support is found for a sister-group relationship between land plants and one group of streptophyte green algae, the Zygnematophyceae, and suggests that phylogenetic hypotheses used to understand the evolution of fundamental plant traits should be reevaluated.
A genome triplication associated with early diversification of the core eudicots
The rapid radiation of core eudicot lineages that gave rise to nearly 75% of angiosperm species appears to have occurred coincidentally or shortly following the gamma triplication event.

It is found that large expansions of gene families preceded the origins of green plants, land plants and vascular plants, whereas whole-genome duplications are inferred to have occurred repeatedly throughout the evolution of flowering plants and ferns.
DNA Barcoding in the Cycadales: Testing the Potential of Proposed Barcoding Markers for Species Identification of Cycads
A workflow for DNA barcoding is suggested, including database generation and management, which will ultimately be necessary if the authors are to succeed in establishing a universal DNA barcode for plants.
MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF MONOCOT RELATIONSHIPS : A SUMMARY
Analysis of supra-familial relationships of monocots based on a combined matrix of nuclear ISS and partial 26S rONA, plastid atpB, matK, ndhF, and rbcL, and mitochondrial atpl DNA sequences provides higher bootstrap support for nearly all relationships than in previously published analyses.
Multigene Analyses of Monocot Relationships
Analysis of supra-familial relationships of monocots based on a combined matrix of nuclear 18S and partial 26S rDNA, plastid atpB, matK, ndhF, and rbcL, and mitochondrial atpl DNA sequences provides higher bootstrap support for nearly all relationships than in previously published analyses.
A Phylogeny of the Monocots, as Inferred from rbcL and atpA Sequence Variation, and a Comparison of Methods for Calculating Jackknife and Bootstrap Values
A phylogenetic analysis of the monocots was conducted on the basis of nucleotide sequence variation in two genes (atpA, encoded in the mitochondrial genome, and rbcL), finding the resolution of a clade comprising four magnoliid lineages (Canellales, Piperales, Magnoliales, and Laurales) as sister of themonocots.
Assembling the Tree of the Monocotyledons: Plastome Sequence Phylogeny and Evolution of Poales1
The results of an initial project by the Monocot AToL (Angiosperm Tree of Life) team on phylogeny and evolution in Poales are presented, using sequence data for 81 plastid genes from 83 species of angiosperms and recovered highly concordant relationships using maximum likelihood (ML) and maximum parsimony (MP).
