Congruence of a phylogeny of Cordiaceae (Boraginales) inferred from ITS1 sequence data with morphology, ecology, and biogeography.
A set of ancestral characters (including apomorphies and plesiomorphies) is reconstructed for Cordiaceae based on lie phylogenetic hypotheses as inferred from the congruence between morphological and ITSI data.
Phylogeny of the neotropical moth tribe Josiini (Notodontidae: Dioptinae): comparing and combining evidence from DNA sequences and morphology
It is concluded that the best supported phylogenetic hypothesis is the one derived from combined analysis, or by a consensus of separate trees generated from DNA and morphology.
Cytotoxic triterpenoid saponins of Albizia gummifera from the Madagascar rain forest.
Three new cytotoxic oleanane-type triterpenoid saponins, gummiferaosides A-C, showed cytotoxicity against the A2780 human ovarian cancer cell line with IC50 values of 0.8, 1.5, and 0.6 microg/mL, respectively.
Generic classification in the Cordiaceae (Boraginales): resurrection of the genus Varronia P. Br.
Generic delimitation of the traditional Cordioideae is reviewed and Cordiaceae comprise three genera, all of which are monophyletic and consistent with vegetative, floral, and pollen morphology.
A novel cytotoxic guttiferone analogue from Garcinia macrophylla from the Suriname rainforest.
Bioassay-guided fractionation of the EtOAc extract of the twigs of Garcinia macrophylla from Suriname produced the known benzophenone, guttiferone A (1), and a new guttiferone analogue, guttiferone G
Generic Revision of the Dioptinae (Lepidoptera: Noctuoidea: Notodontidae) Part 1: Dioptini
A phylogenetic hypothesis provides the framework for a revised classification of the Dioptinae, and an illustrated overview of dioptine morphology is presented, demonstrating remarkable variation in a wide range of structures.
