Phylogeny of the eudicots : a nearly complete familial analysis based on rbcL gene sequences
A phylogenetic analysis of 589 plastid rbcL gene sequences representing nearly all eudicot families was performed, and bootstrap re-sampling was used to assess support for clades.

Phylogenetic trees determined by the parsimony method indicate that Araucariaceae are well defined by rbcL sequences and also that the monophyly of Agathis or Araucaria is well supported by high bootstrap values.
A new subfamily classification of the palm family (Arecaceae): evidence from plastid DNA phylogeny
A new subfamilial classification of the palms is established, in which five subfamilies are recognized, rather than the six that were included in the previous classification, and critical basal nodes are now fully resolved and, in most cases, strongly supported.
Genetic diversity of Tunisian date palms (Phoenixdactylifera L.) revealed by nuclear microsatellite polymprohism.
Fourteen microsatellite loci of Phoenix dactylifera were targeted to examine the genetic diversity in Tunisian date-palms germplasm. They showed a high level of polymorphism in 49 accessions from…
Phylogenetic relationships among arecoid palms (Arecaceae: Arecoideae).
New data sources are required to elucidate ambiguities that remain in phylogenetic relationships among and within the major groups of Arecoideae, as well as within the Areceae, the largest tribe in the palm family.
Nuclear microsatellite markers for the date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.): characterization and utility across the genus Phoenix and in other palm genera
A (GA)n microsatellite-enriched library was constructed and 16 nuclear simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci were characterized in Phoenix dactylifera and are available for cultivar identification, pedigree analysis, germplasm diversity as well as genetic mapping studies.

For decades, palynologists working in tropical South America are using the genus Podocarpus as a climate indicator although without referring to any modern data concerning its distribution and…
Variation in species composition, abundance and microhabitat preferences among western Amazonian terra firme palm communities
Censuses of palm communities along transects, studies of microhabitat preferences of Oenocarpus bataua and documentation of the distribution limit of Astrocaryum species in the intermediate zone provide new insights on the floristic change that is occurring.
Species Delimitation in the Genus Phoenix ( Arecaceae ) Based on SSR Markers , with Emphasis on the Identity of the Date Palm ( Phoenix dactylifera )
Genotyping of Phoenix indicates that the date palm was initially domesticated from wild populations of Phoenix dactylifera itself, with only secondary and localized genetic contributions from other species.
