A phylogenetic analysis of Diurideae (Orchidaceae) based on plastid DNA sequence data.
DNA sequence data from plastid matK and trnL-F regions were used in phylogenetic analyses of Diurideae, which indicate that Diurideae are not monophyletic as currently delimited. However, ifExpand

Molecular phylogenetics of Diseae (Orchidaceae): a contribution from nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences.
We present here the first molecular phylogeny of tribe Diseae (Orchidoideae: Orchidaceae). Nuclear ribosomal ITS1, 5.8S rDNA, and ITS2 sequences were compared for 30 Diseae, 20 Orchideae, and fourExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships of Monocots Based on the Highly Informative Plastid Gene ndhF
We used ndhF sequence variation to reconstruct relationships across 282 taxa representing 78 monocot families and all 12 orders. The resulting tree is highly resolved and places commelinids sister toExpand

Molecular systematics and biogeography of the amphibious genus Littorella (Plantaginaceae).
Littorella (Plantaginaceae) is a disjunct, amphibious genus represented by three closely related species. Littorella uniflora occurs in Europe including Iceland and the Azores, L. americana is foundExpand

Character analysis of the seed coat in Spiranthoideae and Orchidoideae, with special reference to the Diurideae (Orchidaceae)
Previous work on seed types within Orchidaceae has demonstrated that characters associated with the seed coat may have considerable phylogenetic utility. Application of these characters has beenExpand

Repeated evolution of net venation and fleshy fruits among monocots in shaded habitats confirms a priori predictions: evidence from an ndhF phylogeny
We present a well-resolved, highly inclusive phylogeny for monocots, based on ndhF sequence variation, and use it to test a priori hypotheses that net venation and vertebrate-dispersed fleshy fruitsExpand

Aliso 22, pp. 28–51 2006, Rancho Santa Ana Botanic Garden PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF MONOCOTS BASED ON THE HIGHLY INFORMATIVE PLASTID GENE ndhF: EVIDENCE FOR WIDESPREAD CONCERTED CONVERGENCE
We used ndhF sequence variation to reconstruct relationships across 282 taxa representing 78 monocot families and all 12 orders. The resulting tree is highly resolved and places commelinids sister toExpand

Phylogenetics of Arethuseae (Orchidaceae) Based on Plastid matK and rbcL Sequences
Abstract Circumscriptions of Arethuseae have varied since the tribe was first described by John Lindley in 1840, containing over ninety genera among the different authors. The latest system ofExpand
