Phylogeny and classification of Rosaceae
Phylogenetic relationships among 88 genera of Rosaceae were investigated using nucleotide sequence data from six nuclear (18S, gbssi1, gbssi2, ITS, pgip, and ppo) and four chloroplast (matK, ndhF,Expand

Time Tree of Rubiaceae: Phylogeny and Dating the Family, Subfamilies, and Tribes
Rubiaceae are one of the largest families of plants, with ∼13,000 species. In this study, we have estimated the phylogeny for 534 Rubiaceae taxa from 329 genera with up to five different chloroplastExpand

The Phylogeny of Rosoideae (Rosaceae) Based on Sequences of the Internal Transcribed Spacers (ITS) of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA and the trnL/F Region of Chloroplast DNA
The phylogeny of Rosoideae was investigated using 44 species. Here we report new sequence data from the chloroplast trnL/F region as well as an increased sample of species. The analysis of these newExpand

Assessing calibration uncertainty in molecular dating: the assignment of fossils to alternative calibration points.
Although recent methodological advances have allowed the incorporation of rate variation in molecular dating analyses, the calibration procedure, performed mainly through fossils, remains resistantExpand

Molecular phylogeny of the extinct cave lion Panthera leo spelaea.
To reconstruct the phylogenetic position of the extinct cave lion (Panthera leo spelaea), we sequenced 1 kb of the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene from two Pleistocene cave lion DNA samples (47 andExpand

Phylogenetic analysis ofPotentilla using DNA sequences of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacers (ITS), and implications for the classification ofRosoideae (Rosaceae)
The circumscription ofPotentilla has varied widely. To investigate the monophyly ofPotentilla and the phylogenetic relationships of associated genera we used nuclear ribosomal internal transcribedExpand
