Premise of research. Toadflaxes (Linaria Mill., ∼150 spp. from the Palearctic region) constitute the largest genus of the snapdragon lineage (tribe Antirrhineae). Here we provide the first extensive phylogenetic testing of systematic and evolutionary hypotheses about toadflaxes. Methodology. Internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences were obtained for 94 species representing all sections of Linaria recognized by recent taxonomic treatments, as well as three species of the morphologically… Expand
Subgeneric classification of Linaria (Plantaginaceae; Antirrhineae): molecular phylogeny and morphology revisited
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) and chloroplast DNA sequence data reveal Linaria-Nuttallanthus as a monophyletic group composed of seven supported major clades that match partly with the current subgeneric treatment of the genus. Expand
Quaternary radiation of bifid toadflaxes (Linaria sect. Versicolores) in the Iberian Peninsula: low taxonomic signal but high geographic structure of plastid DNA lineages
TLDR
Interestingly, a high geographic structure of plastid DNA lineages was revealed, with a major genetic discontinuity separating south-eastern populations from those of the rest of Iberia, and a role of edaphic specialization in differentiation of the two major clades is hypothesized. Expand
A phylogenetic study of the tribe Antirrhineae: Genome duplications and long-distance dispersals from the Old World to the New World.
TLDR
On an updated Antirrhineae phylogeny, it was showed that the three out of four dispersals from the Old World to the New World were coupled with changes in ploidy levels, suggesting that increases in ploidsy levels may facilitate dispersing into new environments. Expand
A synopsis of the Iberian clade of Linaria subsect. Versicolores (Antirrhineae, Plantaginaceae) based on integrative taxonomy
TLDR
A taxonomic synopsis of the Iberian clade of Linaria subsect based on recently published morphometric and phylogenomic data will provide the basis for future research on speciation and evolution of the clade. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the mainly Mediterranean genera Chaenorhinum, Kickxia and Nanorrhinum (Plantaginaceae, tribe Antirrhineae), with focus on taxa in the Flora Iranica region
TLDR
To examine the monophyly, relationships and rank of Kickxia, Nanorrhinum and Chaenorhinum, a phylogenetic analyses of the nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) and chloroplast DNA (rpl32-trnL) sequence data was conducted, with special focus on the Flora Iranica region. Expand
Corolla morphology influences diversification rates in bifid toadflaxes (Linaria sect. Versicolores).
TLDR
It is confirmed that different forms of floral specialization can lead to dissimilar evolutionary success in terms of diversification and suggested that opposing individual-level and species-level selection pressures may have driven the evolution of pollinator-restrictive traits in bifid toadflaxes. Expand
Testing the biogeographical congruence of palaeofloras using molecular phylogenetics: snapdragons and the Madrean–Tethyan flora
TLDR
Eight Mediterranean/Californian sister-group lineages displayed a Miocene divergence, including considerable biogeographical congruence within Antirrhineae (four independent lineages) and Cistaceae (two lineages). Expand
Congruence between distribution modelling and phylogeographical analyses reveals Quaternary survival of a toadflax species (Linaria elegans) in oceanic climate areas of a mountain ring range.
TLDR
The Atlantic distribution of inferred refugia suggests that the oceanic (buffered)-continental (harsh) gradient may have played a key and previously unrecognized role in determining Quaternary distribution shifts of Mediterranean plants. Expand
Narrow endemics to Mediterranean islands: Moderate genetic diversity but narrow climatic niche of the ancient, critically endangered Naufraga (Apiaceae)
TLDR
The results indicate that a multidisciplinary approach provides powerful tools to develop conservation strategies for evolutionarily singular lineages in Naufraga balearica. Expand
arrow endemics to Mediterranean islands : Moderate genetic iversity but narrow climatic niche of the ancient , critically ndangered Naufraga ( Apiaceae )
Narrow endemics constitute the cornerstone of Mediterranean plant diversity. Naufraga balearica (Apiaceae) is a critically endangered, extremely narrow endemic plant from the western MediterraneanExpand

Phylogenetic relationships of North American Antirrhinum (Veronicaceae).
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region of nuclear ribosomal DNA were conducted and confirmed the monophyly of Antirrhinum given the inclusion of the small genus Mohavea and exclusion of A. cyathiferum. Expand
Documentation of reticulate evolution in peonies (Paeonia) using internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA: implications for biogeography and concerted evolution.
TLDR
Reconstruction of reticulate evolution with sequence data provides gene records for distributional histories of some of the parental species and demonstrates that the sequence data could be highly informative and accurate for detecting hybridization. Expand
Molecular evidence for naturalness of genera in the tribe Antirrhineae (Scrophulariaceae) and three independent evolutionary lineages from the New World and the Old
TLDR
Parsimony (cladistics), distance-based (Neighbor-Joining), and Bayesian inference reveal that the tribe is a natural group and genera such as Linaria, Schweinfurthia, Kickxia, and Antirrhinum also form natural groups. Expand
Piecing together the "new" Plantaginaceae.
TLDR
In a phylogenetic study of 47 members of Plantaginaceae and seven outgroups based on 3561 aligned characters from four DNA regions, the relationships within this clade were analyzed and the results from parsimony and Bayesian analyses support the removal of the Lindernieae from Gratioleae to a position outsideplantaginaceae.

Phylogeny of the tribe Antirrhineae (Scrophulariaceae) based on morphological andndhF sequence data
TLDR
It is concluded that hummingbirdpollination has evolved independently within Antirrhineae at least three times from bee-pollinated ancestors. Expand
Historical Isolation versus Recent Long-Distance Connections between Europe and Africa in Bifid Toadflaxes (Linaria sect. Versicolores)
TLDR
Four events of post-Messinian colonization following long-distance dispersal from northern Africa to the Iberian Peninsula, Sicily and Greece are strongly inferred, providing new evidence for the biogeographic complexity of the Mediterranean region. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of Sorghum and related taxa using internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of the genus Sorghum and related genera were studied by sequencing the nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA) internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) and it is indicated that S. arundinaceum race aethiopicum may be the closest wild relatives of cultivated sorghum. Expand
Coalescent Simulations Reveal Hybridization and Incomplete Lineage Sorting in Mediterranean Linaria
TLDR
This methodology is presented as a functional tool to disclose the evolutionary history of species complexes that have experienced both hybridization and incomplete lineage sorting, including the Quaternary-type climatic oscillations in the Mediterranean flora. Expand
A Comparison of Antirrhinoside Distribution in the Organs of Two Related Plantaginaceae Species with Different Reproductive Strategies
TLDR
Findings are consistent with Optimal Defense Theory (ODT) and further work on the distribution of antirrhinoside and the effect of insect herbivory on plant fitness in other related species is needed. Expand
Characterization of Linaria KNOX genes suggests a role in petal-spur development.
TLDR
A model in which KNOX gene expression during early petal-spur development promotes and maintains further morphogenetic potential of the petal, as previously described, is proposed, indicating that petal spurs could have evolved by changes in regulatory gene expression that cause rapid and potentially saltational phenotypic modifications.
