Phylogeny of Capparaceae and Brassicaceae based on chloroplast sequence data.
Capparaceae and Brassicaceae have long been known to be closely related families, with the monophyly of Capparaceae more recently questioned. To elucidate the relationship between Brassicaceae andExpand

Urticalean rosids: circumscription, rosid ancestry, and phylogenetics based on rbcL, trnL-F, and ndhF sequences.
To address the composition of the urticalean rosids, the relationships of the component families (maximally Cannabaceae, Cecropiaceae, Celtidaceae, Moraceae, Ulmaceae, and Urticaceae) and analyzeExpand

Phialide arrangement and character evolution in the helotialean anamorph genera Cadophora and Phialocephala
The dematiaceous hyphomycete genera Cadophora and Phialocephala are anamorphs associated with mollisioid inoperculate discomycetes (Helotiales) and are delineated based on the complexity of theExpand

Molecular Phylogenetics of Core Brassicales, Placement of Orphan Genera Emblingia, Forchhammeria, Tirania, and Character Evolution
Abstract Many genera previously placed in the traditionally circumscribed Capparaceae are either unrelated or, more commonly, isolated lineages in the order Brassicales. This study examines theExpand

Phylogenetic relationships and biogeography of Fuchsia (Onagraceae) based on noncoding nuclear and chloroplast DNA data.
To examine relationships and test previous sectional delimitations within Fuchsia, this study used parsimony and maximum likelihood analyses with nuclear ITS and chloroplast trnL-F and rpl16 sequenceExpand

A phylogenetic investigation of Carthamus combining sequence and microsatellite data
Carthamus (Asteraceae) includes both crop (Carthamus tinctorius, safflower) and weedy species. Despite previous studies, many outstanding questions remain regarding the phylogenetic surroundings ofExpand

Evolutionary dynamics of genes controlling floral development.
Advances in the understanding of floral developmental genetics in model species such as Arabidopsis continue to provide an important foundation for comparative studies in other flowering plants. InExpand

Studies in the Cleomaceae I. On the Separate Recognition of Capparaceae, Cleomaceae, and Brassicaceae1
Abstract Molecular data support the recognition of three monophyletic families, Capparaceae s. str., Cleomaceae, and Brassicaceae, instead of an all-encompassing Brassicaceae or a paraphyleticExpand

Green fluorescent protein and its derivatives as versatile markers for gene expression in living Drosophila melanogaster, plant and mammalian cells.
We have investigated the utility of the green fluorescent protein (GFP) as a marker for gene expression in living adult Drosophila melanogaster (Dm) and cultured plant and mammalian cells. Using Dm,Expand

Developmental Basis of an Anatomical Novelty: Heteroarthrocarpy in Cakile lanceolata and Erucaria erucarioides (Brassicaceae)
To understand the developmental basis of a novel anatomical feature, we present a comparative developmental study of an ecologically significant novelty in fruit morphology. Most members of the tribeExpand
