Phylogenetics of Chloridoideae (Gramineae): a Preliminary Study Based on Nuclear Ribosomal Internal Transcribed Spacer and Chloroplast trnL–F Sequences
TLDR
The phylogeny of Chloridoideae (Gramineae) was inferred from parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from two genomes, and suggested significant homoplasy in morphological traits, including inflorescence type, number of florets per spikelet, and number of lemma nerves.
Phylogenetic relationships in subtribe Poinae (Poaceae, Poeae) based on nuclear ITS and plastid trnT-trnL-trnF sequences
TLDR
Generic boundaries and relationships among genera of Poinae using nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer data (ITS) and plastid trnT–trnL-trnF (TLF) sequence data are explored.
Molecular Phylogeny of Dissanthelium (Poaceae: Pooideae) and Its Taxonomic Implications
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses and DNA sequences suggest that Dissanthelium is not monophyletic and is nested within Poa, however, ten species form a strongly supported clade in the ITS tree and it is proposed to be treated as taxonomic synonyms of Poa.
Bromus ayacuchensis (Poaceae: Pooideae: Bromeae), a new species from Peru, with a key to Bromus in Peru
TLDR
Bromus ayacuchensis, a new species from Departamento Ayacucho, Peru, is described and illustrated and is similar to species in Bromus sect.
The chromosome number of Schaffnerella gracilis (Gramineae, Chloridoideae)
The first ever chromosome report for the monotypic genus Schaffnerella (Gramineae, Chloridoideae) is 2n = 20 (10 II) from pollen parent cells at diakinesis, which indicates diploidy and a base number
