MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF MONOCOT RELATIONSHIPS : A SUMMARY
We present an analysis of supra-familial relationships of monocots based on a combined matrix of nuclear ISS and partial 26S rONA, plastid atpB, matK, ndhF, and rbcL, and mitochondrial atpl DNAExpand
Multigene Analyses of Monocot Relationships
TLDR
Analysis of supra-familial relationships of monocots based on a combined matrix of nuclear 18S and partial 26S rDNA, plastid atpB, matK, ndhF, and rbcL, and mitochondrial atpl DNA sequences provides higher bootstrap support for nearly all relationships than in previously published analyses. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of monocotyledons inferred from combined analysis of plastid matK and rbcL gene sequences
TLDR
Using matK and rbcL sequences from 113 genera of 45 families, a combined analysis to contribute to the understanding of major evolutionary relationships in the monocotyledons finds that Acorus (Acorales) is a sister group to the rest of themonocots, which receives 100% bootstrap support. Expand
HETEROPOLYGONATUM, A NEW GENUS OF THE TRIBE POLYGONATEAE (CONVALLARIACEAE)FROM WEST CHINA
TLDR
A new genus of the tribe Polygonateae (Convallariaceae) from West China is described and named Heteropolygonatum, which differs from it in having short outer stamens and long inner ones, imbricate tepals, and both terminal and axillary inflorescences. Expand
A Phylogenetic Analysis of the Plastid matK Gene with Emphasis on Melanthiaceae sensu lato
TLDR
The presented matK tree primarily agrees well with the previously presented rbcL tree and combined rBCL +atpB + 18SrDNA tree topologies, and the stop codon position of the matK gene appears to be highly variable among the monocotyledons, especially in the Liliales. Expand
Biosystematic studies on the genus Polygonatum (Convallariaceae) IV. Molecular phylogenetic analysis based on restriction site mapping of the chloroplast gene trnK
TLDR
It was found that Disporopsis and Heteropolygonatum should be distinguished from Polygonatum at generic level, and that P. polygonatum can be recognized as a monophyletic group. Expand
Phylogenetic analyses and chromosome evolution in Convallarieae (Ruscaceae sensu lato), with some taxonomic treatments
TLDR
The character-state distribution in the molecular tree showed that the Convallaria type is plesiomorphic, from which was derived the Tupistra type and subsequently the Aspidistra-elatior type. Expand
Biosystematic studies on the genus Polygonatum (Liliaceae). I, Karyotype analysis of species indigenous to Japan and its adjacent regions
TLDR
Thirteen species, including six varieties and one form, of the genus Polygonatum of Japan, Taiwan, and Cheju Island, Korea, were examined karyologically and the status of each taxon and previous taxonomic treatments were discussed. Expand
Biosystematic studies on the family Tofieldiaceae I. Phylogeny and circumscription of the family inferred from DNA sequences of matK and rbcL.
TLDR
It is found that Tofieldia, Triantha, Pleea, and Harperocallis form the same clade, which receives 100% bootstrap support, and Isidrogalvia should be transferred from T ofieldiaceae to Nartheciaceae. Expand
