Phylogenetic relationships of Rutaceae: a cladistic analysis of the subfamilies using evidence from RBC and ATP sequence variation.
Correlation of the molecular phylogenies with biochemical data indicates that chemotaxonomic information is more reliable than fruit type as an indicator of familial and subfamilial circumscriptions. Expand
Phylogeny of Rutaceae based on twononcoding regions from cpDNA.
Primarily known only by the edible fruits of Citrus, Rutaceae comprise a large (c. 160 genera and 1900 species), morphologically diverse, cosmopolitan family. Of its extraordinary array of secondaryExpand
Chilean Pitavia more closely related to Oceania and Old World Rutaceae than to Neotropical groups: evidence from two cpDNA non-coding regions, with a new subfamilial classification of the family
Results showed Pitavia as sister to Flindersia and Lunasia, both genera with species scattered through Australia, Philippines, Moluccas, New Guinea and the Malayan region, and phylogenetically far from other Neotropical Rutaceae, as well as a new circumscription of the subfamilies of Rutaceae is presented and discussed.

An emended description of and new combinations in Raputia (Cuspariinae, Rutaceae)
All three species of the neotropical genusMyllanthus R. Cowan are transferred toRaputia Aublet, resulting in the following new combinations,R. maroana (R. Cowan) Kallunki,R. neblinensis (R. Cowan)Expand
Pollen morphology of the subtribe Cuspariinae (Rutaceae)
The pollen of Hortia, characterized by a psilate exine with rare perforations, a very thick foot-layer, and reduced columellae, is unlike that of any member of the Cuspariinae and offers no support for the transfer of this genus from the Toddalioideae. Expand

Reproductive biology of mixed-species populations of Goodyera (orchidaceae) in northern Michigan
The reproductive biology ofGoodyera oblongifolia, G. repens var.ophioides andG. tesselata is discussed with emphasis on the reproductive isolating mechanisms operating in mixed-species populations.Expand
Almeidea A. St.-Hil. Belongs to Conchocarpus J.C. Mikan (Galipeinae, Rutaceae): Evidence from Morphological and Molecular Data, with a First Analysis of Subtribe Galipeinae
A phylogenetic analysis of Almeidea is performed, using a broader sampling of Galipeee and other Neotropical Rutaceae, the first such study focused on this subtribe, and showed Galipeinae as monophyletic, with the species of AlMEidea also monophylets and nested in a clade with a group of species of Conchocarpus, a non-monophyletics group.

Population studies in Goodyera (Orchidaceae) with emphasis on the hybrid origin of G. Tesselata
Morphological, cytological, and paper Chromatographic studies of populations from northern Michigan and examination of herbarium specimens from throughout North America were used to clarify theExpand
