A phylogeny of the chloroplast gene rbcL in the Leguminosae: taxonomic correlations and insights into the evolution of nodulation.
Phylogenetic analysis of the chloroplast-encoded rbcL gene in Leguminosae are consistent with previous hypotheses in suggesting that the family as a whole is monophyletic, but that only two of itsExpand
rbcL and Legume Phylogeny, with Particular Reference to Phaseoleae, Millettieae, and Allies
Abstract A parsimony analysis was conducted on 319 rbcL sequences, comprising 242 from 194 genera of Leguminosae and 77 from other families. Results support earlier conclusions from rbcL and otherExpand
Generic criteria and an infrageneric system for Hedysarum and related genera (Papilionoideae-Leguminosae)
New generic delimitations for Corethrodendron, Hedysarum, Sulla and Taverniera are proposed together with new infrageneric systems for Hedysarum, with special reference to morphological evidence.Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Lycium (Solanaceae): inferences from chloroplast DNA sequences.
Lycium comprises approximately 70 species and is disjunctly distributed in temperate to subtropical regions in South America, North America, southern Africa, Eurasia, and Australia. Among them, onlyExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of Salix (Salicaceae) based on rbcL sequence data.
Nucleotide sequences of the chloroplast-encoded rbcL gene were used to examine phylogenetic relationships of the genus Salix together with other allied genera of the family Salicaceae. PhylogeneticExpand
Legume phylogeny and classification in the 21st century: Progress, prospects and lessons for other species-rich clades
The Leguminosae, the third-largest angiosperm family, has a global distribution and high ecological and economic importance. We examine how the legume systematic research community might join forcesExpand
Phylogenetic Relationships of New World Vicia (Leguminosae) Inferred from nrDNA Internal Transcribed Spacer Sequences and Floral Characters
Abstract The approximately 27 New World species of Vicia (tribe Fabeae, family Leguminosae) were classified into four stylar type groups as follows: (1) a laterally compressed and evenly hairy stylarExpand
The morphology of styles and stigmas inVicia (Leguminosae), and its systematic implications
The morphology and development of styles and stigmas ofVicia, one of the five genera of tribe Vicieae, were studied by scanning electron microscopy to contribute to a revision of infragenericExpand
The genus Uraria (Leguminosae) in China
Hylodesmum H. Ohashi & R.R. Mill ( Leguminosae or Fabaceae , tribe Desmodieae ), based on Desmodium sect. Podocarpium Benth. (= D. subgen. Podocarpium (Benth.) H. Ohashi), is a replacement nameExpand
