Phylogeny, adaptive radiation, and historical biogeography in Bromeliaceae: insights from an eight-locus plastid phylogeny.
TLDR
A bromeliad phylogeny based on eight plastid regions is used to analyze relationships within the family, test a new, eight-subfamily classification, infer the chronology of b romeliad evolution and invasion of different regions, and provide the basis for future analyses of trait evolution and rates of diversification.
PHYLOGENY, ADAPTIVE RADIATION, AND HISTORICAL BIOGEOGRAPHY OF BROMELIACEAE INFERRED FROM ndhF SEQUENCE DATA
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of ndhf sequences identifies eight major bromeliad clades arranged in ladderlike fashion, and Hechtia, Abromeitiella-Deuterocohnia-Dyckia-Encholirium, and Puya exhibit a remarkable pattern of concerted convergence in six anatomical and physiological leaf traits adapted to drought.
Ancient Vicariance or Recent Long‐Distance Dispersal? Inferences about Phylogeny and South American–African Disjunctions in Rapateaceae and Bromeliaceae Based on ndhF Sequence Data
TLDR
Both Rapateaceae and Bromeliaceae appear to have arisen at low elevations in the Guayana Shield, experienced accelerated speciation after invading dissected mountainous terrain, and undergone long‐distance dispersal to west Africa recently.
Adaptive radiation, correlated and contingent evolution, and net species diversification in Bromeliaceae.
Molecular phylogenetics of the giant genus Croton and tribe Crotoneae (Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto) using ITS and TRNL-TRNF DNA sequence data.
TLDR
This study establishes a phylogenetic framework for future studies in the hyper-diverse genus Croton, indicates a New World origin for the genus, and will soon be used to evaluate wood anatomical, cytological, and morphological data in the Crotoneae tribe.
A revised infrageneric classification and molecular phylogeny of New World Croton (Euphorbiaceae)
TLDR
The infrageneric classification of the New World species of Croton is updated with new evidence from phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequence data from all three genomes, and relationships of species that were previously placed in conflicting positions by nuclear and chloroplast data are resolved.
