Phylogeny and classification of the subfamily Rubioideae (Rubiaceae)
We performed phylogenetic analyses of the subfamily Rubioideae (Rubiaceae) based on three different pieces of chloroplast DNA, the protein codingrbcL gene, the spacer sequence betweenatpB andrbcLExpand
Phylogeny ofRubiaceae-Rubieae inferred from the sequence of a cpDNA intergene region
A phylogenetic analysis of 25 species, representing eight genera of theRubieae tribe (Rubiaceae), has been made using the DNA sequence of the chloroplastatp B-rbc L intergene region. Six tropicalExpand
The use of herbarium specimens in DNA phylogenetics: Evaluation and improvement
During the last few years we have been confronted with the need to use herbarium specimens in the molecular phylogeny studies, since it is generally difficult to obtain living material of some rareExpand
The history of extant Ilex species (Aquifoliaceae): evidence of hybridization within a Miocene radiation.
The history and diversification of the genus Ilex (Aquifoliaceae), based on 108 different species (116 specimens), are inferred from the analysis of two nuclear (ITS and nepGS) and three plastidExpand
A plastid gene phylogeny of the non-photosynthetic parasitic Orobanche (Orobanchaceae) and related genera
The phylogenetic relationships of the non-photosynthetic Orobanche sensu lato (Orobanchaceae), which includes some of the economically most important parasitic weeds, remain insufficiently understoodExpand
Microsatellites from archaeological Vitis vinifera seeds allow a tentative assignment of the geographical origin of ancient cultivars
Six charred or waterlogged archaeological specimens of Vitis vinifera seeds from different European sites, dating from 2600 to 1700 years, were tested for the PCR amplification and theExpand
Horizontal gene transfer of a plastid gene in the non-photosynthetic flowering plants Orobanche and Phelipanche (Orobanchaceae).
Plastid sequences are among the most widely used in phylogenetic and phylogeographic studies in flowering plants, where they are usually assumed to evolve like non-recombining, uniparentallyExpand
Phylogeny and intraspecific variability of holoparasitic Orobanche (Orobanchaceae) inferred from plastid rbcL sequences.
The rbcL sequences of 106 specimens representing 28 species of the four recognized sections of Orobanche were analyzed and compared. Most sequences represent pseudogenes with premature stop codons.Expand
