Phylogenetics and the evolution of major structural characters in the giant genus Euphorbia L. (Euphorbiaceae).
Euphorbia is among the largest genera of angiosperms, with about 2000 species that are renowned for their remarkably diverse growth forms. To clarify phylogenetic relationships in the genus, we usedExpand

Phylogenetic Analysis of the Plastid Inverted Repeat for 244 Species: Insights into Deeper-Level Angiosperm Relationships from a Long, Slowly Evolving Sequence Region
Recent plastid phylogenomic studies have helped clarify the backbone phylogeny of angiosperms. However, the relatively limited taxon sampling in these studies has precluded strongly supportedExpand
