Everywhere but Antarctica: using a supertree to understand the diversity and distribution of the Compositae.
The results of molecular phylogenetic studies of members of tribes Helenieae, Heliantheae, and Eupatorieae (Asteraceae) and General systematics and proposed taxonomic changes in current classification are presented. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the orange subfamily(Rutaceae: Aurantioideae) using nine cpDNA sequences.
The breeding of new, high-quality citrus cultivars depends on dependable information about the relationships of taxa within the tribe Citreae; therefore, it is important to have a well-supportedExpand
Phylogeny of Australian Gnaphalieae (Asteraceae) Based on Chloroplast and Nuclear Sequences, the trnL Intron, trnL/trnF Intergenic Spacer, matK, and ETS
A phylogeny of the Australian Gnaphalieae is reconstructed using sequence data from thetrnL intron, trnL/trnF intergenic spacer, matK, and ETS to indicate that the subtribes Angianthinae and Cassiniinae are non-monophyletic as currently circumscribed. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships in Sarraceniaceae Based on rbcL and ITS Sequences
P phylogenetic relationships in the family are investigated using sequences of the internal transcribed spacer regions of nuclear ribosomal DNA (ITS) and of the chloroplast gene rbcL to demonstrate that Sarracenia and Heliamphora form a monophyletic group that is the sister group of Darlingtonia. Expand
Circumscription and phylogeny of the Orthotrichales (Bryopsida) inferred from RBCL sequence analyses.
The contribution of rbcL sequence data to bryophyte systematics is illustrated and, particularly, in determining the affinities of taxa lacking a peristome, whose characters are central to the classification of mosses. Expand
Molecular phylogeny, diversification and character evolution in Lupinus (Fabaceae) with special attention to Mediterranean and African lupines
The ITS phylogeny suggests a rapid initial radiation of the lupines subsequent to their divergence from a common ancestor and indicates that the annual and perennial habits have evolved many times in Lupinus and suggest a role for generation time in affecting the evolutionary history of l upines. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of Acacia (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae) based on the chloroplast MATK coding sequence and flanking TRNK intron spacer regions.
The tribe Acacieae (Fabaceae: Mimosoideae) contains two genera, the monotypic African Faidherbia and the pantropical Acacia, which comprise about 1200 species with over 950 confined to Australia. AsExpand
Phylogeny and Biogeography of Tsuga (Pinaceae) Inferred from Nuclear Ribosomal Its and Chloroplast DNA Sequence Data
Hemlock, Tsuga, has a disjunct distribution in North America and Asia and phylogenetic relationships among multiple accessions of all nine species inferred using chloroplast DNA sequences and multiple cloned sequences of the nuclear ribosomal ITS region infers an Eocene basal crown group diversification and an initial widespread circumpolar distribution with subsequent vicariance and extinction events leading to the current disJunct distribution. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in Lupinus (Fabaceae: Papilionoideae) based on internal transcribed spacer sequences (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA.
Internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA from 44 taxa of the genus Lupinus and five outgroup taxa were used for phylogenetic analysis, revealing an unexpectedly close relationship between the diverse sections Angustifoli and Lutei. Expand
