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

The atpB and rbcL promoters in plastid DNAs of a wide dicot range
The plastid atp B-rbcL intergene has been analyzed within a wide range of plants covering the major dicot lineages. New sequences from 13 plant species were determined and aligned with threeExpand

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

Comparison of the evolution of ribulose-1, 5-biphosphate carboxylase (rbcL) and atpB-rbcL noncoding spacer sequences in a recent plant group, the tribe Rubieae (Rubiaceae)
Plastid sequences of the atpB-rbcL spacer and rbcL gene itself were used to evaluate their respective potential in reconstructing the phylogeny of 15 taxa from the tribe Rubieae (Rubiaceae). From ourExpand

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

Molecular Phylogeny and Biogeography of the Genus Ilex L. (Aquifoliaceae)
Abstract The chloroplast atpB-rbcL spacer was sequenced for 115 species of Ilex and for Nemopanthus mucronatus (Aquifoliaceae). In addition, rbcL sequences were obtained for 47 selected species.Expand

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
