300 million years of diversification: elucidating the patterns of orthopteran evolution based on comprehensive taxon and gene sampling
A robust phylogeny of Orthoptera is established including 36 of 40 families representing all 15 currently recognized superfamilies and based on complete mitochondrial genomes and four nuclear loci, in order to test previous phylogenetic hypotheses and to provide a framework for a natural classification and a reference for studying the pattern of divergence and diversification.
DNA Barcoding and Species Boundary Delimitation of Selected Species of Chinese Acridoidea (Orthoptera: Caelifera)
The results demonstrated that the COI barcode region performed better in phylogenetic reconstruction at genus and species levels than at higher-levels, but showed a little improvement in resolving the higher-level relationships when the third base data or both first and third baseData were excluded.
Origin and diversification of leucine-rich repeat receptor-like protein kinase (LRR-RLK) genes in plants
Phylogenetic analyses revealed that plant LRR-RLKs belong to 19 subfamilies, eighteen of which were established in early land plants, and one of which evolved in flowering plants, while maximum likelihood analyses showed that some sites within four subfam families were under positive selection.
The phylogeny of the Orthoptera (Insecta) as deduced from mitogenomic gene sequences
The findings suggest that the best phylogenetic inferences can be made when moderately divergent nucleotide data from mitogenomes are analyzed, and that the NADH dataset was suited for studying orthopteran phylogenetic relationships at different taxonomic levels.
The mitochondrial genome of Ruspolia dubia (Orthoptera: Conocephalidae) contains a short A+T-rich region of 70 bp in length.
The complete sequence of the Ruspolia dubia mitochondrial genome was determined and annotated and a short, highly conserved polythymidine stretch that was previously described in Orthoptera and Diptera was also present in the A+T-rich region.
Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Teleogryllus emma (Orthoptera: Gryllidae) with a New Gene Order in Orthoptera
The complete sequence of Teleogryllus emma mitochondrial genome was determined using long PCR and conserved primer walking approaches. The results showed that the entire mitochondrial genome of T.
Sequence and phylogenetic analysis of complete mitochondrial DNA genomes of two grasshopper species Gomphocerus rufus (Linnaeus, 1758) and Primnoa arctica (Zhang and Jin, 1985) (Orthoptera:
A general law on the composition of the caeliferan mitogenome is summarized, which suggests that within Caelifera, the subfamily Gomphocerinae appears to be a paraphyletic group in the analyses of the protein-coding gene (PCG) dataset and a monophyleticgroup in the analysis of rRNA dataset.
The phylogeny of Galerucinae (Coleoptera: Chrysomelidae) and the performance of mitochondrial genomes in phylogenetic inference compared to nuclear rRNA genes
The results show that the mitogenome is phylogenetically informative from subtribe to family level, and the per‐nucleotide contribution to nodal support is higher than that of rRNA genes, and suggest a new classification system of Galerucini with eight subtribes.
Complete mitochondrial genome of Oxya chinensis (Orthoptera, Acridoidea).
The result of phylogenetic analysis based on the dataset containing 12 concatenated protein sequences confirms the close relationship of O. chinensis with L. migratoria.
The phylogeny of Orthoptera inferred from mtDNA and description of Elimaea cheni (Tettigoniidae: Phaneropterinae) mitogenome.
The phylogeny of Orthoptera based on different mtDNA datasets were analyzed with maximum likelihood (ML) and Bayesian inference and suggest that the best phylogenetic inferences were ML and BI methods based on total mtDNA.
