Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
Abstract A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA (1855 bp), rbcL (1428 bp), and atpB (1450 bp) representing a total ofExpand

An ordinal classification for the families of flowering plants
Recent cladistic analyses are revealing the phylogeny of flowering plants in increasing detail, and there is support for the monophyly of many major groups above the family level. With many elementsExpand

Phylogenetic Relationships of Capsicum (Solanaceae) Using DNA Sequences from Two Noncoding Regions: The Chloroplast atpB‐rbcL Spacer Region and Nuclear waxy Introns
This study focuses on three phylogenetic problems related to Capsicum (Solanaceae): (1) the monophyly of the genus, (2) species delimitation within the genus, and (3) phylogenetic relationships ofExpand

Sapindales:Molecular delimitation and infraordinal groups
An analysis of rbcL sequence data for representatives of families of putative sapindalean/rutalean affinity identified a robust clade of core "sapindalean" taxa that is sister to representatives ofExpand

Patterns of floral evolution in the early diversification of non-magnoliid dicotyledons (eudicots)
Recent cladistic analyses of angiosperms based on both morphological and molecular sequence data recognize a major clade of dicotyledons defined by triaperturate or triaperturate-derived pollenExpand

Data Congruence and Phylogeny of the Papaveraceae s.l. Based on Four Data Sets: atpB and rbcL Sequences, trnK Restriction Sites, and Morphological Characters
Phylogenetic analyses of various combinations of atpB and rbcL sequence data, trnK restriction sites, and morphological characters of taxa representing the Papaveraceae s.l. (Pteridophyllaceae,Expand

Phylogeny of the Proteaceae Based on atpB and atpB-rbcL Intergenic Spacer Region Sequences
Parsimony analyses were conducted for 46 genera representing all subfamilies and tribes within Proteaceae using two chloroplast sequences: the gene atpB and the noncoding spacer region between atpBExpand

Phylogenetic Patterns in Menispermaceae Based on Multiple Chloroplast Sequence Data
Abstract Menispermaceae, a dioecious, largely pantropical family of vines and lianas, consists of approximately 70 genera. In this paper, we present phylogenies (derived using maximum parsimony,Expand
