Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms.
Phylogenetics of flowering plants based on combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL gene sequences.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of flowering plants based on a second plastid gene, atpB, analyzed separately and in combination with rbcL sequences for 357 taxa demonstrates that phylogenetics analysis of large matrices is feasible.
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 elements
Phylogenetic Relationships of Capsicum (Solanaceae) Using DNA Sequences from Two Noncoding Regions: The Chloroplast atpB‐rbcL Spacer Region and Nuclear waxy Introns
TLDR
The chloroplast atpB‐rbcL noncoding spacer region was used to derive a phylogeny for seven outgroup genera and 11 species of Capsicum to resolve further questions of species delimitation and phylogenetic relationships of species within Capsicum.
Sapindales:Molecular delimitation and infraordinal groups
TLDR
A robust clade of core "sapindalean" taxa is identified that is sister to representatives of Malvales and there was no support for the recognition of the two more narrowly defined orders, Rutales and Sapindales sensu stricto.
Selection of candidate coding DNA barcoding regions for use on land plants
Ford, C. S., Ayres, K. L., Toomey, N., Haider, N., Stahl, J. V., Kelly, L. J., Wikstrom, N., Hollingsworth, P. M., Duff, R. J., Hoot, S. B., Cowan, R. S., Chase, M. W., Wilkinson, M. J. (2009).
Patterns of floral evolution in the early diversification of non-magnoliid dicotyledons (eudicots)
TLDR
Evidence from morphology and molecular sequence data indicates that extant Ranunculidae as well as “lower” Hamamelididae and several other families are basal in this group of dicotyledons, and cyclic floral architecture is probably basic for eudicots as a whole.
Data Congruence and Phylogeny of the Papaveraceae s.l. Based on Four Data Sets: atpB and rbcL Sequences, trnK Restriction Sites, and Morphological Characters
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of various combinations of atpB and rbcL sequence data, trnK restriction sites, and morphological characters of taxa representing the Papaveraceae s.l. remain monophyletic after the exclusion of Pteridophyl- lum and Fumariaceae.
