Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms.
The largest eukaryotic genome of them all
We report the largest eukaryotic genome to date in the monocot Paris japonica (Melanthiaceae, 1C = 152.23 pg), measured using flow cytometry. This value is 15% larger than any previous estimate and
Phylogenetics of flowering plants based on combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL gene sequences.
A phylogenetic analysis of flowering plants based on a second plastid gene, atpB, analyzed separately and in combination with rbcL sequences for 357 taxa demonstrates that phylogenetics analysis of large matrices is feasible.
Cross‐species transfer of nuclear microsatellite markers: potential and limitations
The potential for successful cross‐species transfer appears highest in species with long generation times, mixed or outcrossing breeding systems, and where genome size in the target species is small compared to the source.
Phylogeny of the eudicots : a nearly complete familial analysis based on rbcL gene sequences
A phylogenetic analysis of 589 plastid rbcL gene sequences representing nearly all eudicot families was performed, and bootstrap re-sampling was used to assess support for clades.
An ordinal classification for the families of flowering plants
Recent cladistic analyses are revealing the phylogeny of flowering plants in increasing detail, and there is support for the monophyly of many major groups above the family level. With many elements
When in doubt, put it in Flacourtiaceae: a molecular phylogenetic analysis based on plastid rbcL DNA sequences
The phylogenetic analysis of plastid rbcL DNA sequences found the family Flacourtiaceae to be composed of two clades that are more closely related to other families in Malpighiales than to each other.
A subfamilial classification for the expanded asparagalean families Amaryllidaceae, Asparagaceae and Xanthorrhoeaceae
A new subfamilial name, Xanthorrhoeoideae, and a new tribal name, Oziroeeae, are proposed, which greatly simplifies the taxonomy of Asparagales and thus makes the teaching of these families much easier.
Genome size diversity in orchids: consequences and evolution.
It is revealed that Orchidaceae are currently the most variable angiosperm family with genome sizes ranging 168-fold (1C = 0.33-55.4 pg) and the importance of obtaining further genome size data given the considerable phylogenetic gaps which have been highlighted by the current study.
