Almost forgotten or latest practice? AFLP applications, analyses and advances.
Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) DNA fingerprinting is a firmly established molecular marker technique, with broad applications in population genetics, shallow phylogenetics, linkageExpand

Piecing together the "new" Plantaginaceae.
Scrophulariaceae is one of the families that has been divided extensively due to the results of DNA sequence studies. One of its segregates is a vastly enlarged Plantaginaceae. In a phylogeneticExpand

Optimizing automated AFLP scoring parameters to improve phylogenetic resolution.
The amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique is an increasingly popular component of the phylogenetic toolbox, particularly for plant species. Technological advances in capillaryExpand

Species delimitation and phylogeny of a New Zealand plant species radiation
BackgroundDelimiting species boundaries and reconstructing the evolutionary relationships of late Tertiary and Quaternary species radiations is difficult. One recent approach emphasizes the use ofExpand

Bayesian inference of phylogenetic networks from bi-allelic genetic markers
Phylogenetic networks are rooted, directed, acyclic graphs that model reticulate evolutionary histories. Recently, statistical methods were devised for inferring such networks from either gene treeExpand

Phylogeny of Veronica in the Southern and Northern Hemispheres based on plastid, nuclear ribosomal and nuclear low-copy DNA.
The cosmopolitan and ecologically diverse genus Veronica with approximately 450 species is the largest genus of the newly circumscribed Plantaginaceae. Previous analyses of Veronica DNA sequencesExpand

Phylogeographic patterns in the Australasian genus Chionohebe (Veronica s.l., Plantaginaceae) based on AFLP and chloroplast DNA sequences.
The alpine genus Chionohebe is one of seven genera in the southern hemisphere Hebe complex. The main aims of this study were to infer the evolutionary relationships and assess phylogeographicExpand

First phylogenetic and biogeographical study of the southern bluebells (Wahlenbergia, Campanulaceae).
Wahlenbergia is a largely southern hemisphere genus of at least 260 species; within Campanulaceae only Campanula is larger. This first phylogeny of Wahlenbergia was reconstructed using about 20% ofExpand

A taxonomic revision of native New Zealand Plantago (Plantaginaceae)
Species delimitation is challenging in New Zealand Plantago because of a complex polyploid evolutionary history, few taxonomically useful characters due to reduced habit and wind-pollinated flowers,Expand

DNA sequences from three genomes reveal multiple long-distance dispersals and non-monophyly of sections in Australasian Plantago (Plantaginaceae)
We examined the geographic origins and taxonomic placements of New Zealand and Australian Plantago (Plantaginaceae) by using molecular phylogenetic data. Plantago comprises over 200 speciesExpand
