Phylogeny of Saxifragales (angiosperms, eudicots): analysis of a rapid, ancient radiation.
TLDR
It is shown that estimated branch lengths during the initial diversification of Saxifragales are exceedingly short, and it is estimated that acquiring sufficient sequence data to resolve these relationships would require an extraordinary effort, and a limit to achievable branch support is suggested.
THE MAJOR CLADES
Phylogenetic analyses of Loasaceae that apply DNA sequence data from the plastid trnL-trnF region and matK gene in both maximum-parsimony and maximum-likelihood searches are presented. The results
Phylogenetic Relationships in Sarraceniaceae Based on rbcL and ITS Sequences
TLDR
P phylogenetic relationships in the family are investigated using sequences of the internal transcribed spacer regions of nuclear ribosomal DNA (ITS) and of the chloroplast gene rbcL to demonstrate that Sarracenia and Heliamphora form a monophyletic group that is the sister group of Darlingtonia.
Elucidating deep-level phylogenetic relationships in Saxifragaceae using sequences for six chloroplastic and nuclear DNA regions
To elucidate relationships at deep levels within Saxifragaceae we analyzed phylogenetically a data set of sequences for six DNA regions, four representing the chloroplast genome (rbcL, matK,
Relationships and evolution of Hydrangeaceae based on RBCl sequence data
TLDR
Analysis of rbcL sequences suggests that Fendlera and Jamesia are sister to the remainder of the family, lending support to the hypothesis that at least some Carpenterieae are basal in the family and that Hydrangeaceae may have originated in xeric habitats.
The major clades of Loasaceae: phylogenetic analysis using the plastid matK and trnL-trnF regions.
Phylogenetic analyses of Loasaceae that apply DNA sequence data from the plastid trnL-trnF region and matK gene in both maximum-parsimony and maximum-likelihood searches are presented. The results
Homoplasy. The Recurrence of Similarity in Evolution.
TLDR
The results confirmed that nonfloral homoplasy and evolutionary scenarios in living and fossil land plants, R.R. Donoghue and M.J. Doyle, the relationship be-tween homoplASY and confidence in a phylogenetic tree, and L. Sanderson and S. Hufford, the measurement of homoplassy - a stochastic view.
Rosidae and their relationships to other nonmagnoliid dicotyledons : a phylogenetic analysis using morphological and chemical data
TLDR
Parsimony analysis was used to develop phylogenetic hypotheses for Rosidae and other nonmagnoliid dicotyledons, especially Asteridae, and the problematic Columellia was placed among Asteridae as the sister group of Caprifoliaceae.
A Phylogenetic Analysis of Hydrangeaceae Based on Morphological Data

    International Journal of Plant Sciences
  • 1 September 1997
TLDR
The results indicate that classifications of Hydrangeaceae require extensive revision to provide greater utility and reasonable insights on evolutionary relationships and indicate that Hutchinson's tribe Carpenterieae is paraphyletic.
A phylogenetic analysis of Cunoniaceae
TLDR
The Cunoniaceae appear positioned at a critical transitional point in the evolution of higher dicotyledonous groups (see also Ehrendorfer 1977; EhrendOrfer et al. 1984) and, therefore, assume considerable phylogenetic importance.
