Molecular phylogeny of Macaranga, Mallotus, and related genera (Euphorbiaceae s.s.): insights from plastid and nuclear DNA sequence data.
TLDR
The analyses demonstrated the monophyly of Macaranga and the paraphyly of Mallotus and revealed three highly supported main clades, suggesting migrations or dispersals from Asia to Africa and Madagascar.
Twenty-three microsatellite primer pairs for Betula pendula (Betulaceae)
TLDR
This paper reports the development of microsatellite primers for a widespread birch species Betula pendula by screening genomic libraries with (TC)10 and (TG)10 probes, of which 23 proved to be polymorphic.
Linkage map of birch, Betula pendula Roth, based on microsatellites and amplified fragment length polymorphisms.
TLDR
The first genetic linkage map for silver birch, Betula pendula Roth, was constructed by using a pseudo-testcross mapping strategy and integration of linkage data from 3 unrelated 2-generation pedigrees by simultaneously comparing the performance of CRI-MAP and OUTMAP packages.
Re-shaping Mallotus [Part 2]: inclusion of Neotrewia, Octospermum and Trewia in Mallotus s.s. (Euphorbiaceae s.s.)
TLDR
It is shown that three small Asiatic genera are clearly part of a strongly supported main Mallotus clade (Mallotus s.s. clade), rendering the genus paraphyletic, and these genera, Neotrewia, Octospermum and Trewia are merged with mallotus.
The phylogeny of Mallotus s.str. (Euphorbiaceae) inferred from DNA sequence and morphological data
TLDR
An analysis of quantitative morphological data, in combination with qualitative morphological and molecular datasets resulted in almost completely resolved phylogenies and increased support values, however, the higher-level relationships between the clades are not supported in the authors' analyses and the position of many taxa is still ambiguous.
RESURRECTION OF HANCEA ANd LECTOTYPIFICATION OF AdISCA (EUPHORbIACEAE)
TLDR
Based on phylogenetic studies with DNA sequence data, the formerly monotypic genus Cordemoya is reduced to Hancea and the subgenus and section Diplochlamys from Asia are renamed to Hancesa.
Themorphological range in Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae) and a taxonomic revision ofits section Rottleropsis (including Axenfeldia) in Malesia, Thailand and Africa .
TLDR
This paper concludes a series of taxonomic revisions of the genus Mallotus in Malesia and Thailand with a taxonomic revision of 38 species of sect.
How to tackle revisions of large genera: lessons from Macaranga and Mallotus (Euphorbiaceae).
TLDR
Two approaches to revise large genera are discussed, one of which can be done by a single person, who revises the genus area after area, and another by a team that revises per infrageneric taxon.
Revision of the genus Cleidion (Euphorbiaceae) in Malesia
A revision of the Malesian species in the genus Cleidion is presented. Cleidion javanicum is shown to be the correct name for the widespread type species (instead of the name C. spiciflorum). A new
Leaf anatomy of Mallotus and the related genera Blumeodendron and Hancea (Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto)
TLDR
In this study, leaf anatomy is used to discuss the infrageneric delimitation of Mallotus and Hancea and to compare these genera with the more distantly related Blumeodendron.
