A worldwide phylogenetic classification of the Poaceae (Gramineae)
TLDR
Based on recent molecular and morphological studies, this work presents a modern worldwide phylogenetic classification of the 771 grass genera and divides them into 12 subfamilies.
A worldwide phylogenetic classification of the Poaceae (Gramineae) II: An update and a comparison of two 2015 classifications
TLDR
A new worldwide phylogenetic classification of 11 506 grass species in 768 genera, 12 subfamilies, seven supert tribes, 52 tribes, five supersubtribes, and 90 subtribes is presented and a radial tree illustrating the hierarchical relationships among the subtribes, tribes, and subfam families is included.
Systematics and evolution of the needle grasses (Poaceae: Pooideae: Stipeae) based on analysis of multiple chloroplast loci, ITS, and lemma micromorphology
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis supports the recognition of the following genera and groups and monophyly of Phaenospermateae including Duthieinae is demonstrated, and its inclusion within or treatment as sister to Stipeae is rejected.
A molecular phylogeny and new subgeneric classification of Sporobolus (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Sporobolinae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis provides weak to moderate support for a paraphyletic Sporobolus that includes Calamovilfa, Crypsis, Spartina, and Thellungia, and the molecular results support the recognition of 11 sections and 11 subsections.
Phylogenetics of Stipeae (Poaceae: Pooideae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences
The Stipeae tribe is a group of 400−600 grass species of worldwide distribution that are currently placed in 21 genera. The ‘needlegrasses’ are characterized by having single-flowered spikelets and
A molecular phylogeny and classification of Leptochloa (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Chlorideae) sensu lato and related genera.
TLDR
The molecular results support the dissolution of Leptochloa s.l. is polyphyletic and strong support was found for five lineages.
A phylogeny and classification of the Muhlenbergiinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylograms suggest that Muhlenbergia originated in North America because the sister (Sohnsia filifolia and Scleropogoninae) is composed of predominantly North American species.
Phylogeny of Nassella (Stipeae, Pooideae, Poaceae) Based on Analyses of Chloroplast and Nuclear Ribosomal DNA and Morphology
TLDR
The DNA data alone and combined with morphology showed Nassella to be paraphyletic with respect to a monophyletic Amelichloa, and none of the groups previously circumscribed as subgenera of Stipa, that are now considered to be composed of species in NassellA, were recovered as monophylete.
