Taxonomic and biogeographic implications of a phylogenetic analysis of the Campanulaceae based on three chloroplast genes
DNA sequences of the chloroplast genes atpB, matK, and rbcL are used to infer the phylogeny of 102 taxa in 41 genera plus four outgroup taxa of the Campanulaceae, providing strong evidence for two major clades in the family and evidence that the large, inclusive genera Wahlenbergia and Campanula are polyphyletic.
Historical biogeography of the endemic Campanulaceae of Crete
Aim The clade Campanulaceae in the Cretan area is rich in endemics, with c. 50% of its species having restricted distributions. These species are analysed in the context of a larger phylogeny of the…
How to Handle Speciose Clades? Mass Taxon-Sampling as a Strategy towards Illuminating the Natural History of Campanula (Campanuloideae)
A short genomic region with high phylogenetic utility allowed this work to easily generate a comprehensive phylogenetic framework for the speciose Campanula clade and recovered 17 well-supported and circumscribed sub-lineages.
Indigenous diversity of Cassava: Generation, maintenance, use and loss among the Amuesha, Peruvian upper Amazon
For cassava (Manihot esculenta Euphorbiaceae), results from field collection, semistructured interviews, phenetic and cluster analyses, and Global Information Systems (G1S) indicate that cassava…
A global perspective on Campanulaceae: Biogeographic, genomic, and floral evolution.
Ancestral range estimation supports an out-of-Africa diversification following the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event, and Morphological reconstructions support the hypothesis that switches in floral symmetry and anther dehiscence were important in the evolution of secondary pollen presentation mechanisms.
Domesticated Landscapes: The Subsistence Ecology of Plant and Animal Domestication
It makes sense to define human subsistence behavior as an interactive matrix of species and harvesting tactics, that is, as a provisions spreadsheet.

Phylogeny of Campanuloideae (Campanulaceae) with Emphasis on the Utility of Nuclear Pentatricopeptide Repeat (PPR) Genes
This study represents the first inclusion of low-copy nuclear genes for phylogenetic reconstruction in Campanuloideae and reveals potential hybridization events for a number of taxa as well as obtaining support for the placement of two early diverging lineages that have previously been unresolved.

This study addresses the timing and rate of diversification in Tragopogon and shows that subclades of various plant taxa that occur in the same semi‐arid habitats of Eurasia also represent rapid radiations occurring during roughly the same window of time, suggesting similar causal events.
Revision on the genus Phyllagathis (Melastomataceae: Sonerileae). I. The species in Burma, Thailand, Peninsular Malaysia and Sumatra
- N. Cellinese
- Environmental Science
A revision of the genus Phyllagathis Blume is presented under a wider generic concept than used by earlier authors, which includes 10 species, most of which are endemic to Peninsular Malaysia, with only two species endemic to Thailand.
