A DNA barcode for land plants
The 2-locus combination of rbcL+matK will provide a universal framework for the routine use of DNA sequence data to identify specimens and contribute toward the discovery of overlooked species of land plants.
An updated classification of Orchidaceae
A revised classification of Orchidaceae is presented including a list of all 736 currently recognized genera, and three new tribes are recognized within Epidendroideae, which has been much clarified by analyses of multiple plastid DNA regions and the low-copy nuclear gene Xdh.
DNA data and archidaceae systematics: A new phylogenetic classification
A new phylogenetic classification of Orchidaceae is proposed that accords with these newly discovered relationships and should help to focus other areas of orchid research and stimulate the creation of new hypotheses that will direct orchid researchers to new questions.
A phylogenetic analysis of the Orchidaceae: evidence from rbcL nucleotide.
RbcL fails to provide strong support for the interrelationships of the subfamilies of the Orchidaceae, and the cladograms presented here should serve as a standard to which future morphological and molecular studies can be compared.
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.
A proposal for a standardised protocol to barcode all land plants
A proposal for a standardised protocol to barcode all land plants is presented in Taxon, 56, (2), 295-299.
Orchid phylogenomics and multiple drivers of their extraordinary diversification
A phylogeny based on 75 chloroplast genes for 39 species representing all orchid subfamilies and 16 of 17 tribes, time-calibrated against 17 angiosperm fossils shows that orchids appear to have undergone one significant acceleration of net species diversification in the orchidoids, and two accelerations and one deceleration in the upper epidendroids.
A phylogenetic analysis of Diurideae (Orchidaceae) based on plastid DNA sequence data.
DNA sequence data from plastid matK and trnL-F regions were used in phylogenetic analyses of Diurideae, which indicate that Diurideae are not monophyletic as currently delimited. However, if

  • 1 June 2004
This study is the first to document the utility of psaB sequences for phylogenetic studies of plants below the family level and recovers the five monophyletic subfamilial clades currently recognized in Orchidaceae.
Molecular Phylogenetics of Lentibulariaceae Inferred from Plastid rps16 Intron and trnL-F DNA Sequences: Implications for Character Evolution and Biogeography
Phylogenetic analysis of DNA sequences from the plastid rps16 intron and the trnL-F region demonstrates patterns commonly associated with the boreotropics hypothesis and limits the spatial origin of Lentibulariaceae to temperate Eurasia or tropical America.
