The earliest angiosperms: evidence from mitochondrial, plastid and nuclear genomes
Angiosperms have dominated the Earth's vegetation since the mid-Cretaceous (90 million years ago), providing much of our food, fibre, medicine and timber, yet their origin and early evolution haveExpand

Molecular evolution and phylogenetic implications of internal transcribed spacer sequences of Ribosomal DNA in Winteraceae
The internal transcribed spacers and the 5.8S coding region of nuclear ribosomal DNA were sequenced and analyzed to address questions of generic relationships in Winteraceae. The molecular dataExpand

Phylogeny of Basal Angiosperms: Analyses of Five Genes from Three Genomes1
DNA sequences of five mitochondrial, plastid, and nuclear genes from 105 species (103 genera and 63 families) representing all major lineages of gymnosperms and basal angiosperms were analyzed usingExpand

Phylogenetic relationships in the Gesnerioideae (Gesneriaceae) based on nrDNA ITS and cpDNA trnL‐F and trnE‐T spacer region sequences†
The Gesnerioideae includes most of the New World members of the Gesneriaceae family and is currently considered to include five tribes: Beslerieae, Episcieae, Gesnerieae, Gloxinieae, and Napeantheae.Expand
