A molecular phylogeny and new subgeneric classification of Sporobolus (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Sporobolinae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis provides weak to moderate support for a paraphyletic Sporobolus that includes Calamovilfa, Crypsis, Spartina, and Thellungia, and the molecular results support the recognition of 11 sections and 11 subsections. Expand
(2332) Proposal to conserve the name Sporobolus against Spartina, Crypsis, Ponceletia , and Heleochloa ( Poaceae : Chloridoideae : Sporobolinae )
TLDR
This poster presents a probabilistic assessment of the phytochemical properties of the fruit fly, which has the potential to provide clues to the origin of infectious disease and its mode of transmission. Expand
A molecular phylogeny and classification of the Cteniinae, Farragininae, Gouiniinae, Gymnopogoninae, Perotidinae, and Trichoneurinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae)
TLDR
The goals of this study were to reconstruct the evolutionary history of the tribe Cynodonteae, emphasizing these twenty genera using molecular data with increased species sampling and the recognition of six subtribes. Expand
A molecular phylogeny and classification of the Cynodonteae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae) with four new genera: Orthacanthus, Triplasiella, Tripogonella, and Zaqiqah; three new subtribes:
TLDR
In the most recent classification of the grasses, the sub­ family Chloridoideae Kunth ex Beilschm includes five tribes: Centropodieae P.M.Peterson, Eragrostideae Stapf, Zoysieae Benth. Expand
A molecular phylogeny and classification of the Eleusininae with a new genus, Micrachne (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae)
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny and classification of the Eleusininae with a new genus, Micrachne, finds about 212 species in 31 genera found primarily in low latitudes in Africa, Asia, Australia, and the Americas. Expand
Phylogeny and subgeneric classification of Bouteloua with a new species, B. herrera‐arrietae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae: Boutelouinae)
TLDR
The goals of this study were to reconstruct the evolutionary history among the species of Bouteloua using molecular data with increased species sampling compared to previous studies, and to describe a new species from Nuevo León, BoutelOUa herrera‐arrietae. Expand
MUHLENBERGIINAE (POACEAE: CHLORIDOIDEAE: CYNODONTEAE): FROM NORTHEASTERN MÉXICO
TLDR
A taxonomic treatment of the subtribe Muhlenbergiinae for northeastern Mexico (Coahuila, Nuevo Leon, and Tamaulipas) is given and a brief discussion indicating relationships among all species of MuhLenbergia in northeastern Mexico are provided. Expand
Four new subtribes: Allolepiinae, Jouveinae, Kaliniinae, and Sohnsiinae in the Cynodonteae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae)
TLDR
Since Allolepis, Jouvea, Kalinia, and Sohnsia do not align within any of the 21 existing Cynodonteae subtribes, they are described as new. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the subtribe Sporobolinae and a classification of the subfamily Chloridoideae (Poaceae)
TLDR
The goal of this study was to reconstruct the evolutionary history of the Sporobolinae using molecular data with increased species sampling, and the maximum likelihood phylogram provides moderate support for a paraphyleticSporobolus that includes Calamovilfa, Crypsis, Spartina, and Thellungia. Expand
Poa Matri-occidentalis (Poaceae: Pooideae: Poeae: Poinae), a New Species from Mexico
TLDR
The new species is morphologically similar to Poa kelloggii but differs by having leaf sheaths that are closed near the base 2/3 to 4/5 their length, entire ligules that are 3.5-6 mm long, nodding panicles, ovate lemmas with obtuse to acute apices, and non-visible rachilla internodes. Expand
