Phylogenetic relationships within Araucariaceae based on rbcL gene sequences.
Phylogenetic relationships were determined in the Araucariaceae, which are now found mainly in the Southern Hemisphere. This conifer family was well diversified and widely distributed in bothExpand
Phylogenetic relationships inCrossostylis (Rhizophoraceae) inferred from restriction site variation of chloroplast DNA
Phylogenetic relationships among the nine species ofCrossostylis (Rhizophoraceae) were elucidated using cladistic analysis of restriction site variations of chloroplast DNA. As a result, this genusExpand
Genetic Differentiation and Genetic Diversity of Castanopsis (Fagaceae), the Dominant Tree Species in Japanese Broadleaved Evergreen Forests, Revealed by Analysis of EST-Associated Microsatellites
The broadleaved evergreen forests of the East Asian warm temperate zone are characterised by their high biodiversity and endemism, and there is therefore a need to extend our understanding of itsExpand
Molecular Phylogeny of Casuarinaceae Based on rbcL and matK Gene Sequences
rbcL (1310 bp) and matK (1014 bp), using 15 species representing the family. The study included analyses of Ticodendron (Ticodendraceae) and three species of Betulaceae as close relatives, and oneExpand
Phylogeny of the family hydrocharitaceae inferred fromrbcL andmatK gene sequence data
The family Hydrocharitaceae, with 15 genera and ca. 80 species, shows a remarkable morphological diversity which presumably developed as an adaptation to their aquatic habitat. This is particularlyExpand
Phylogeography of Cycas revoluta Thunb. (Cycadaceae) on the Ryukyu Islands: very low genetic diversity and geographical structure
Variations in the chloroplast and mitochondrial DNA of Cycas revoluta Thunb. (Cycadaceae) were examined in 22 populations distributed across the Ryukyu Islands and southern Kyushu. Among the 14,130Expand
Refugia of Potentilla matsumurae (Rosaceae) located at high mountains in the Japanese archipelago
Molecular phylogeographic studies have revealed the genetic patterns and glacial–interglacial history of many plant and animal species. To infer the Quaternary history of alpine plants in theExpand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Ainsliaea (Asteraceae) in the Sino-Japanese region based on nuclear rDNA and plastid DNA sequence data.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The flora of the Sino-Japanese plant region of eastern Asia is distinctively rich compared with other floristic regions in the world. However, knowledge of its floristic evolutionExpand
Consistent geographic structure among multiple nuclear sequences and cpDNA polymorphisms of Cardamine nipponica Franch. et Savat. (Brassicaceae)
Molecular phylogeography has inferred the history of differentiation between regions and/or among populations following the Pleistocene climatic oscillations, mostly based on the genetic structure ofExpand
Molecular Phylogeny of Rhizophoraceae Based on rbcL Gene Sequences
rbcL sequences to clarify the inter- and intrarelationships of Rhizophoraceae which have been variously discussed. The analyses included 12 of the 15 genera of Rhizophoraceae (4/7 of Macarisieae, 4/4Expand
