A Preliminary Approach to the Phylogeny of the Genus Paspalum (Poaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships among the species of Paspalum L. belonging to the informal groups Notata/Linearia and Dilatata are clarified, and some preliminary hypotheses on the phylogeny of the genus as a whole are raised. Expand
Studies on diversity and evolution of Iridaceae species in southern Brazil
The main goal of this review is to compile published information about South American Iridaceae, and to discuss the evolution and genetic diversity of the family presenting their own research data in the light of the published literature. Expand
Overview of the phylogenetic relationships of some southern Brazilian species from section Torva and related sections of “spiny Solanum” (Solanum subgenus Leptostemonum, Solanaceae)
This work presents a taxonomic overview of Solanum section Torva, from South Brazil, which still poorly understood, and questions on evolution concerning phylogenetic relationships in this section and other related sections of subgenus Leptostemonum were investigated to clarify the species circumscription and taxonomic issues.

Genetic Relationships and Variation among Biotypes of Dallisgrass (Paspalum dilatatum Poir.) and Related Species Using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA Markers
The present work confirms that the RAPD technique can be used to determine genetic relationships between the taxa belonging to the Dilatata group and shows some clusters corresponding to the same taxa. Expand
Isolation and characterization of microsatellite loci in Sisyrinchium (Iridaceae) and cross amplification in other genera.
These developed microsatellite markers can be used as an efficient tool for characterization of genetic variability in species belonging to Iridoideae, as well as for studies on population dynamics, genetic structure, and mating system in other Sisyrinchium species. Expand
