Biogeography of the grasses (Poaceae): a phylogenetic approach to reveal evolutionary history in geographical space and geological time
The grasses (Poaceae) are the fifth most diverse family of angiosperms, including 800 genera and more than 10 000 species. Few phylogenetic studies have tried to investigate palaeo-biogeographicalExpand

New grass phylogeny resolves deep evolutionary relationships and discovers C4 origins.
• Grasses rank among the world's most ecologically and economically important plants. Repeated evolution of the C(4) syndrome has made photosynthesis highly efficient in many grasses, inspiringExpand

Genetic variation in Miscanthus × giganteus and the importance of estimating genetic distance thresholds for differentiating clones
Miscanthus × giganteus (Mxg) is an important bioenergy feedstock crop, however, genetic diversity among legacy cultivars may be severely constrained. Only one introduction from Japan to Denmark ofExpand

The origins and diversification of C4 grasses and savanna-adapted ungulates.
C 4 grasses constitute the main component of savannas and are pervasive in other dry tropical ecosystems where they serve as the main diet for grazing animals. Among potential factors driving C 4Expand

Phylogenetics of Panicoideae (Poaceae) based on chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences
Phylogenetic relationships among major subfamilies in Poaceae and among major tribes within Panicoideae were evaluated using parsimony and Bayesian analyses of chloroplast trnL–F and atpβ–rbcL DNAExpand

Development and testing of novel chloroplast microsatellite markers for Lolium perenne and other grasses (Poaceae) from de novo sequencing and in silico sequences
Twelve primers to amplify microsatellite markers from the chloroplast genome of Lolium perenne were designed and optimized using de novo sequencing and in silico sequences. With one exception, eachExpand

Miscanthus : a case study for the utilization of natural genetic variation
Cultivars of Miscanthus used as bioenergy crops or tested in trials are largely clonally propagated, wild sourced genotypes or clonally propagated F1 hybrids. One of the most productive taxa is theExpand

Plastid genome sequencing reveals biogeographical structure and extensive population genetic variation in wild populations of Phalaris arundinacea L. in north‐western Europe
New and comprehensive collections of the perennial rhizomatous reed canary grass (Phalaris arundinacea) were made in NW Europe along north‐to‐south and east‐to‐west clines from Denmark, Germany,Expand

Phylogenetic inference of Badula (Primulaceae), a rare and threatened genus endemic to the Mascarene Archipelago
With 14 species, Badula (Primulaceae) is the most species-rich endemic angiosperm genus of the Mascarene Archipelago. The relationship between Badula and its ally Oncostemum (c. 100 spp; MadagascarExpand
