Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
Abstract A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA (1855 bp), rbcL (1428 bp), and atpB (1450 bp) representing a total ofExpand

Direct estimation of the mutation rate at dinucleotide microsatellite loci in Arabidopsis thaliana (Brassicaceae)
The mutation rate at 54 perfect (uninterrupted) dinucleotide microsatellite loci is estimated by direct genotyping of 96 Arabidopsis thaliana mutation accumulation lines. The estimated rate differsExpand

Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of Crassulaceae inferred from matK sequence data.
Chloroplast gene matK sequence data were used to estimate the phylogeny of 112 species of Crassulaceae sampled from 33 genera and all six recognized subfamilies. Our analyses suggest that five of sixExpand

Timing and Tempo of Early and Successive Adaptive Radiations in Macaronesia
The flora of Macaronesia, which encompasses five Atlantic archipelagos (Azores, Canaries, Madeira, Cape Verde, and Salvage), is exceptionally rich and diverse. Spectacular radiation of numerousExpand

Inferring phylogeny at low taxonomic levels: utility of rapidly evolving cpDNA and nuclear ITS loci.
Plant molecular systematic studies of closely related taxa have relied heavily on sequence data from nuclear ITS and cpDNA. Positive attributes of using ITS sequence data include the rapid rate ofExpand

Phylogenetics and Evolution of the Macaronesian Clade of Crassulaceae Inferred from Nuclear and Chloroplast Sequence Data
Abstract The Macaronesian clade of Crassulaceae comprises four genera (Aichryson, Aeonium, Greenovia, and Monanthes) that are largely endemic to Macaronesia, a region encompassing the Azores,Expand

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,Expand

Molecular phylogeny of the Acre clade (Crassulaceae): dealing with the lack of definitions for Echeveria and Sedum.
The phylogenetic relationships within many clades of the Crassulaceae are still uncertain, therefore in this study attention was focused on the "Acre clade", a group comprised of approximately 526Expand

Phylogeny of Coreopsideae (Asteraceae) inferred from nuclear and plastid DNA sequences
A phylogenetic study of tribe Coreopsideae (Asteraceae) was conducted using sequences from two plastid regions matK and the trnL-trnF spacer, and nuclear ITS. Analyses of the plastid and ITS datasetsExpand
