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

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 andExpand

Cross‐species transfer of nuclear microsatellite markers: potential and limitations
Molecular ecologists increasingly require ‘universal’ genetic markers that can easily be transferred between species. The distribution of cross‐species transferability of nuclear microsatellite lociExpand

Phylogenetics of flowering plants based on combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL gene sequences.
Following (1) the large-scale molecular phylogeny of seed plants based on plastid rbcL gene sequences (published in 1993 by Chase et al., Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 80:528-580) and (2) the 18S nuclearExpand

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 (a total of 308 families; seven photosynthetic and four parasitic families are missing) wasExpand

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 elementsExpand

When in doubt, put it in Flacourtiaceae: a molecular phylogenetic analysis based on plastid rbcL DNA sequences
Summary. Circumscription of Flacourtiaceae was investigated with a phylogenetic analysis of plastid rbcL DNA sequences, and the family was found to be composed of two clades that are more closelyExpand

A subfamilial classification for the expanded asparagalean families Amaryllidaceae, Asparagaceae and Xanthorrhoeaceae
We provide here a subfamilial scheme for the expanded asparagalean families Amaryllidaceae, Asparagaceae and Xanthorrhoeaceae. Our recommendation is that the first family has three subfamiliesExpand

Genome size diversity in orchids: consequences and evolution.
BACKGROUND The amount of DNA comprising the genome of an organism (its genome size) varies a remarkable 40 000-fold across eukaryotes, yet most groups are characterized by much narrower ranges (e.g.Expand

Barrier to gene flow between two ecologically divergent Populus species, P. alba (white poplar) and P. tremula (European aspen): the role of ecology and life history in gene introgression
The renewed interest in the use of hybrid zones for studying speciation calls for the identification and study of hybrid zones across a wide range of organisms, especially in long‐lived taxa forExpand
