An updated classification of Orchidaceae
A revised classification of Orchidaceae is presented including a list of all 736 currently recognized genera, and three new tribes are recognized within Epidendroideae, which has been much clarified by analyses of multiple plastid DNA regions and the low-copy nuclear gene Xdh.
DNA data and archidaceae systematics: A new phylogenetic classification
A new phylogenetic classification of Orchidaceae is proposed that accords with these newly discovered relationships and should help to focus other areas of orchid research and stimulate the creation of new hypotheses that will direct orchid researchers to new questions.
An expanded plastid DNA phylogeny of Orchidaceae and analysis of jackknife branch support strategy.
It is found that support values plateau rapidly with increased search effort, and tree bisection-reconnection swapping in a single search replicate per jackknife replicate and saving only two trees resulted in values that were close to those obtained in the most extensive searches.
A Phylogeny of the Monocots, as Inferred from rbcL and atpA Sequence Variation, and a Comparison of Methods for Calculating Jackknife and Bootstrap Values
A phylogenetic analysis of the monocots was conducted on the basis of nucleotide sequence variation in two genes (atpA, encoded in the mitochondrial genome, and rbcL), finding the resolution of a clade comprising four magnoliid lineages (Canellales, Piperales, Magnoliales, and Laurales) as sister of themonocots.
Investigating the path of plastid genome degradation in an early-transitional clade of heterotrophic orchids, and implications for heterotrophic angiosperms.
Corallorhiza spans the early stages of a general model of plastome degradation and has added critical insight for understanding the process of plastsome evolution in heterotrophic angiosperms.
Efficacy and Safety of Isopropanolic Black Cohosh Extract for Climacteric Symptoms
This isopropanolic extract of black cohosh root stock is effective in relieving Climacteric symptoms, especially in early climacteric women.
Phylogenetic relationships in Epidendroideae (Orchidaceae), one of the great flowering plant radiations: progressive specialization and diversification.
Diversification analyses show that epiphytism is most strongly associated with diversification among epidendroids, followed by expansion into the New World and anther characters that are involved with pollinator specificity, namely early anther inflexion, cellular pollinium stalks and the superposedpollinium arrangement.
An overview of the phylogenetic relationships within Epidendroideae inferred from multiple DNA regions and recircumscription of Epidendreae and Arethuseae (Orchidaceae).
Phylogenetic relationships within the epidendroid orchids with emphasis on tribes Epidendreae and Arethuseae were assessed with parsimony and model-based analyses of individual and combined DNA sequence data, finding a well-resolved and supported consensus.
Monophyly and Floral Character Homology of Old World Passiflora (Subgenus Decaloba: Supersection Disemma)
Supersection Disemma is monophyletic, containing two distinct Asian and Australian lineages, and Hollrungia and Tetrapathaea are strongly supported as members of Passiflora, though their exact relationships to each other are not resolved.
Taxonomy and Classification
This chapter provides a description of all plant families and genera that include putative fully mycoheterotrophic species, excluding initial and partial mycoheterotrophs. The overview covers a total
