Phylogeny of Capparaceae and Brassicaceae based on chloroplast sequence data.
TLDR
Results of parsimony and likelihood analyses strongly support the monophyly of Brassicaceae plus Capparaceae, excluding Forchhammeria, and suggest the recognition of three primary clades-Cappar Families subfamily (subf.) Capparoideae, Cleomoidesae, and Br Jurassicaceae.
Zea nicaraguensis (Poaceae), a new teosinte from Pacific Coastal Nicaragua.
The geographically isolated annual teosinte from the coastal plain and embayments/estuaries near the Gulf of Fonseca, Nicaragua, is differentiated from Zea luxurians from southeastern Guatemala by
TAXONOMY OF ZEA (GRAMINEAE). II. SUBSPECIFIC CATEGORIES IN THE ZEA MAYS COMPLEX AND A GENERIC SYNOPSIS
TLDR
A compromise classification of the genus Zea, reflecting both phylogeny and practical needs, recognizes six taxa, which are distinguished by smaller spikelets and rachis joints, the varieties by different habitats, blooming dates and their genetic behavior in relation to cultivated Zea mays.
TAXONOMY OF ZEA (GRAMINEAE). I. A SUBGENERIC CLASSIFICATION WITH KEY TO TAXA
TLDR
A consideration of the phylogeny of Zea within the conceptual framework offered by this new sectioning of the genus points convincingly to annual teosinte (Z. mays ssp. mexicana) as the ancestor of cultivated maize.
Molecular Phylogenetics of Core Brassicales, Placement of Orphan Genera Emblingia, Forchhammeria, Tirania, and Character Evolution
TLDR
The core Brassicales is a biogeographically dispersed lineage that is comprised of many small and morphologically distinct clades plus the large crown group Brassicaceae s.
Zea diploperennis (Gramineae): A New Teosinte from Mexico
A perennial teosinte or "wild maize" endemic to the Cerro de San Miguel, Sierra de Manantlan, Jalisco, Mexico differs from Zea perennis by dimorphic rhizomes, robust habit, and a larger number of

  • 25 November 1983
TLDR
Maize, the only cereal with unisexual inflorescences, evolved through a sudden epigenetic sexual transmutation involving condensation of primary branches, which brought their tassels into the zone of female expression, leading to strong apical dominance and a catastrophic shift in nutrient allocation.
Atlas of the Wisconsin Prairie and Savanna Flora.
This Atlas of theWisconsin Prairie and Savanna Flora treats most of the native vascular plants of Wisconsin grasslands and savannas from the standpoint of floristics and phytogeography. Included are
Studies in the Capparidaceae—IV. Polanisia Raf
TLDR
The purpose of this pape r is to redefine Polanisia, and to elucidate certain of its taxonomic, morphological and phylogenetic-geographic problems par t icular ly those of the group of taxa that are here combined into Polan isia dodecandra sensu lato.
