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
The distribution and phylogenetic significance of a 50-kb chloroplast DNA inversion in the flowering plant family Leguminosae.
Species in 9 of the approximately 650 genera of the flowering plant family Leguminosae are known to possess a large (50-kb) inversion in their chloroplast genomes, relative to the gene order foundExpand
Polymorphism for the Presence of the rpL2 Intron in Chloroplast Genomes of Bauhinia (Leguminosae)
The intron of the chloroplast gene rpl2 is absent from relatively few lineages of angiosperms, and is thus potentially a useful phylogenetic character. A previous extensive survey of LeguminosaeExpand
