The largest family of flowering plants Asteraceae (Compositae) is found to contain 12 major lineages rather than five as previously suggested. Five of these lineages heretofore had been circumscribedExpand

Molecular evidence for multiple origins of woodiness and a new world biogeographic connection of the Macaronesian island endemic Pericallis (Asteraceae: senecioneae).
The prevalence of woody species in oceanic islands has attracted the attention of evolutionary biologists for more than a century. We used a phylogeny based on sequences of the internal-transcribedExpand

Toward a phylogenetic subfamilial classification for the Compositae (Asteraceae)
Molecular studies of the flowering plant family Compositae (Asteraceae) based on comparative DNA sequence data of chloroplast genes provide new insights into the evolution and radiation of theExpand

Resolution of deep nodes yields an improved backbone phylogeny and a new basal lineage to study early evolution of Asteraceae.
A backbone phylogeny that fully resolves all subfamily and deeper nodes of Asteraceae was constructed using 14 chloroplast DNA loci. The recently named genus Famatinanthus was found to be sister toExpand

Phylogenetic analysis of Silphium and subtribe Engelmanniinae (Asteraceae: Heliantheae) based on ITS and ETS sequence data.
The phylogenetic relationships of Silphium and subtribe Engelmanniinae were examined using DNA sequence data. The internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region and the external transcribed spacer (ETS)Expand

A phylogenetic analysis of Doronicum (Asteraceae, Senecioneae) based on morphological, nuclear ribosomal (ITS), and chloroplast (trnL-F) evidence.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Old World genus Doronicum (26 species, 4 subspecies) based on sequence data of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the nuclear ribosomal DNA, theExpand

Macroevolutionary dynamics in the early diversification of Asteraceae.
Spatial and temporal differences in ecological opportunity can result in disparity of net species diversification rates and consequently uneven distribution of taxon richness across the tree of life.Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of subtribe Ecliptinae (Asteraceae: Heliantheae) based on chloroplast DNA restriction site data.
Phylogenetic analysis of chloroplast DNA restriction site data for 76 of the 302 genera of Heliantheae sensu lato using 16 restriction endonucleases reveals that subtribe Ecliptinae is polyphyleticExpand

Repeated reunions and splits feature the highly dynamic evolution of 5S and 35S ribosomal RNA genes (rDNA) in the Asteraceae family
BackgroundIn flowering plants and animals the most common ribosomal RNA genes (rDNA) organisation is that in which 35S (encoding 18S-5.8S-26S rRNA) and 5S genes are physically separated occupyingExpand

Evidence from chloroplast DNA restriction site analysis on the relationships of Scalesia (Asteraceae: Heliantheae)
Helianthus and later assigned to Helianthopsis. Two other groups considered as potential sister groups based on their geographic distribution in South America were not placed near Scalesia in theExpand
