A phylogeny of the chloroplast gene rbcL in the Leguminosae: taxonomic correlations and insights into the evolution of nodulation.
Phylogenetic analysis of the chloroplast-encoded rbcL gene in Leguminosae are consistent with previous hypotheses in suggesting that the family as a whole is monophyletic, but that only two of itsExpand
rbcL and Legume Phylogeny, with Particular Reference to Phaseoleae, Millettieae, and Allies
Abstract A parsimony analysis was conducted on 319 rbcL sequences, comprising 242 from 194 genera of Leguminosae and 77 from other families. Results support earlier conclusions from rbcL and otherExpand
Systematics and biogeography of Lathyrus (Leguminosae) based on internal transcribed spacer and cpDNA sequence data.
Lathyrus (Leguminosae; Papilionoideae) is the largest genus in tribe Fabeae and exhibits an intriguing extratropical distribution. We studied the systematics and biogeography of Lathyrus usingExpand
Phylogenetic relationships of Salix (Salicaceae) based on rbcL sequence data.
Nucleotide sequences of the chloroplast-encoded rbcL gene were used to examine phylogenetic relationships of the genus Salix together with other allied genera of the family Salicaceae. PhylogeneticExpand
Oceanic currents, not land masses, maintain the genetic structure of the mangrove Rhizophora mucronata Lam. (Rhizophoraceae) in Southeast Asia
Aim Mangroves are intertidal plants with sea-dispersed propagules, hence their population structure can offer valuable insights into the biogeographical processes driving population subdivision inExpand
Legume phylogeny and classification in the 21st century: Progress, prospects and lessons for other species-rich clades
The Leguminosae, the third-largest angiosperm family, has a global distribution and high ecological and economic importance. We examine how the legume systematic research community might join forcesExpand
Molecular phylogeny of Dipetrocarpaceae in Southeast Asia based on nucleotide sequences of matK, trnL intron, and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer region in chloroplast DNA.
To obtain a refined molecular phylogeny of dipterocarp species in Southeast Asia, nucleotide sequences of matK, the intron of trnL, and intergenic spacer region between trnL and trnF in chloroplastExpand
Strong genetic structure over the American continents and transoceanic dispersal in the mangrove genus Rhizophora (Rhizophoraceae) revealed by broad-scale nuclear and chloroplast DNA analysis.
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY The global distribution of mangroves is attributed to interactions between long-distance propagule dispersal and geographical barriers, which are manifest inExpand
Origin and evolution of the colonial volvocales (Chlorophyceae) as inferred from multiple, chloroplast gene sequences.
A combined data set of DNA sequences (6021 bp) from five protein-coding genes of the chloroplast genome (rbcL, atpB, psaA, psaB, and psbC genes) were analyzed for 42 strains representing 30 speciesExpand
Molecular Phylogeny of the Sacoglossa, With a Discussion of Gain and Loss of Kleptoplasty in the Evolution of the Group
Sacoglossan sea slugs retain the chloroplasts from food algae in their cells (kleptoplasty) and obtain the photosynthetic products, but the capability of kleptoplasty differs among species. OneExpand
