PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS WITHIN CLADOPHORALES (ULVOPHYCEAE, CHLOROPHYTA) INFERRED FROM 18S rRNA GENE SEQUENCES, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO AEGAGROPILA LINNAEI  1
TLDR
Freshwater species, included in the analysis, were located in two distantly related lineages, indicating that adaptation from a marine to a freshwater habitat has happened at least twice independently in the Cladophorales. Expand
Chloroplast DNA phylogeography of Fagus crenata (Fagaceae) in Japan
TLDR
The distribution of the two major cpDNA clades suggests that there were two migration routes in the history of F. crenata; one along the Japan Sea and the other along the Pacific Ocean side of the Japanese Islands. Expand
Evolution and divergence of the MADS-box gene family based on genome-wide expression analyses.
TLDR
The global phylogenetic analyses of MADS-box genes did not support the previous classification of MADs- box genes into type I and II groups, based on smaller scale analyses, and suggests that most M-type genes are pseudogenes, although further experiments are necessary to confirm this possibility. Expand
BIOGEOGRAPHY AND TAXONOMY OF BATRACHOSPERMUM HELMINTHOSUM (BATRACHOSPERMALES, RHODOPHYTA) IN JAPAN INFERRED FROM RBCL GENE SEQUENCES 1
TLDR
It is suggested that several taxonomic characteristics (sexuality, point of origin of carpogonium‐bearing branches, and trichogynes with or without basal knobs or branching) is not fixed genetically but is affected by environmental conditions. Expand
The chloroplast genome from a lycophyte (microphyllophyte), Selaginella uncinata, has a unique inversion, transpositions and many gene losses
TLDR
The organization of the S. uncinata chloroplast genome provides a new insight into the evolution of lycophytes, which were separated from euphyllophytes approximately 400 million years ago. Expand
Chloroplast phylogeny indicates that bryophytes are monophyletic.
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses using 51 genes from the entire chloroplast genome sequences of 20 representative green plant species indicated that extant bryophytes form a monophyletic group with high statistical confidence and that extantBryophyte monophytes are likely sisters to extant vascular plants, although the support for monophy letic vascular plants was not strong.

Further Analysis of Intraspecific Sequence Variation of Chloroplast DNA in Primula cuneifolia Ledeb. (Primulaceae): Implications for Biogeography of the Japanese Alpine Flora
TLDR
It is concluded that the cpDNA haplotypes of the three clades in P. cuneifolia arose and assumed the present distribution areas through several cycles of glacial advance and retreat in the Pleistocene. Expand
Extensive Mitochondrial Introgression from Pinus pumila to P. parviflora var. pentaphylla (Pinaceae)
TLDR
The present study detected extensive mtDNA capture in populations of P. pentaphylla located in the southern and middle parts of the Ohu Mountains, Tohoku, Japan and suggests that seed flow could be an effective medium for interspecific gene exchange. Expand
Intraspecific sequence variation of chloroplast DNA inPedicularis chamissonis Steven (Scrophulariaceae) and geographic structuring of the Japanese “Alpine” plants
TLDR
It is concluded that the haplotypes of the Northern and Southern clades in P. chamissonis might have traveled down to Japanese Archipelago from the north in not a single glacial period. Expand
Characterization of a FLORICAULA/LEAFY Homologue of Gnetum parvifolium and Its Implications for the Evolution of Reproductive Organs in Seed Plants
TLDR
The results indicate that the inductive pathway from the FLO/LFY gene to the MADS‐box genes already existed in the common ancestor of angiosperms and gymnosperms. Expand
