Earlier plant flowering in spring as a response to global warming in the Washington, DC, area
Evidence for global warming is inferred from spring advances in first-flowering in plants. The trend of average first-flowering times per year for the study group shows a significant advance of 2.4Expand

Dated historical biogeography of the temperate Loliinae (Poaceae, Pooideae) grasses in the northern and southern hemispheres.
Divergence times and biogeographical analyses have been conducted within the Loliinae, one of the largest subtribes of temperate grasses. New sequence data from representatives of the almostExpand

Systematics and evolution of the needle grasses (Poaceae: Pooideae: Stipeae) based on analysis of multiple chloroplast loci, ITS, and lemma micromorphology
We conducted a molecular phylogenetic study of the tribe Stipeae using nine plastid DNA sequences (trnK-matK, matK, trnH-psbA, trnL-F, rps3, ndhF, rpl32-trnL, rps16-trnK, rps16 intron), the nuclearExpand

A classification of the Chloridoideae (Poaceae) based on multi-gene phylogenetic trees.
We conducted a molecular phylogenetic study of the subfamily Chloridoideae using six plastid DNA sequences (ndhA intron, ndhF, rps16-trnK, rps16 intron, rps3, and rpl32-trnL) and a single nuclear ITSExpand

A 250 plastome phylogeny of the grass family (Poaceae): topological support under different data partitions
The systematics of grasses has advanced through applications of plastome phylogenomics, although studies have been largely limited to subfamilies or other subgroups of Poaceae. Here we present aExpand

MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE AMERICAN STIPEAE (POACEAE) RESOLVES JARAVA SENSU LATO POLYPHYLETIC: EVIDENCE FOR A NEW GENUS, PAPPOSTIPA
A molecular phylogenetic analysis based on plastid ( trnK-matK , matK, trnH-psbA, and trnL-trnF regions) and nuclear ITS DNA sequences of 68 species representing 11 genera suggests an entirely newExpand

Phylogenetics of Stipeae (Poaceae: Pooideae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences
The Stipeae tribe is a group of 400−600 grass species of worldwide distribution that are currently placed in 21 genera. The ‘needlegrasses’ are characterized by having single-flowered spikelets andExpand
