Abstract The genus Amaranthus (pigweeds) is a group of ∼74 monoecious or dioecious annual species native to every continent but Antarctica, frequently associated with natural and human disturbance, with several economically important domesticated and weedy species. We set out to reconstruct the phylogeny of Amaranthus, with broad geographic sampling, in order to answer questions about biogeographic relationships in the genus and the monophyly of the subgenera. Fifty-eight species were included… Expand
Nomenclatural survey of the genus Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae s.s.). 8. About Amaranthus polygonoides s.l. and A. anderssonii, two related taxa described from the tropical regions of America with notes on their taxonomy
TLDR
The morphological study of leaves and seeds, as well as data about the distribution and the available phylogenetic analyses, show that the taxa can be distinguished at infraspecific ranks. Expand
Draft Genomes of Amaranthus tuberculatus, Amaranthus hybridus, and Amaranthus palmeri
TLDR
A combination of Pacific Biosciences long-read sequencing and chromatin contact mapping information was utilized to assemble and order sequences of A. palmeri to near-chromosome-level resolution and to resolve the issues of heterozygosity and coassembly of alleles in diploid species. Expand
Comparative analysis of the complete chloroplast genome sequences of three Amaranthus species
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on 62 protein-coding genes showed that the core Caryophyllales were monophyletic and Amaranthoideae formed a sister group with the BetoideAE and Chenopodioideae clade and was considered to be useful molecular markers for further phylogenetic studies. Expand
Species identification, phylogenetic analysis and detection of herbicide-resistant biotypes of Amaranthus based on ALS and ITS
TLDR
The ALS gene is important for species identification, investigating population genetic diversity and understanding resistant evolution within the genus Amaranthus. Expand
Nomenclatural survey of the genus Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae). 11. Dioecious Amaranthus species belonging to the sect. Saueranthus
A nomenclatural study of Amaranthus names, linked to the dioecious taxa belonging to the sect. Saueranthus (subgen. Acnida), was carried out. All studied names are validly published but in need ofExpand
Arid Australia as a source of plant diversity: the origin and climatic evolution of Ptilotus (Amaranthaceae)
TLDR
The hypothesis that a pre-adaptation to aridity and early arrival in an aridifying Australia were integral to the success of Ptilotus is supported and the Eremaean has been a source of biodiversity in the genus and for independent radiations into neighbouring climatic zones. Expand
Male-specific Y-chromosomal regions in waterhemp (Amaranthus tuberculatus) and Palmer amaranth (Amaranthus palmeri).
TLDR
With lists of candidate genes for sex determination containing fewer than 200 in each species, future research can address whether sex determination is controlled via similar physiological pathways and whether dioecy has indeed evolved independently in these species. Expand
Phylogenomics With Hyb-Seq Unravels Korean Hosta Evolution
TLDR
This study provides the most comprehensive genomic resources to be used in phylogenetic, population, and conservation studies of Hosta, as well as for unraveling the origin of many cultivars. Expand
Genetic diversity of leafy amaranth (Amaranthus tricolor L.) resources in Vietnam
TLDR
The STRUCTURE and FST analysis indicated a positive relationship between geographic distance and genetic differentiation among most of the overseas groups and the Vietnamese collection, but not among geographic groups within the VietnameseCollection. Expand
Genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships among and within Amaranthus spp. using RAPD markers
TLDR
The results showed that the polymorphism in cultivated species was lower than that in wild ones, reflecting the selection pressures of domestication on genetic diversity in cultivated species. Expand

Analysis of phylogenetic relationships and genome size evolution of the Amaranthus genus using GBS indicates the ancestors of an ancient crop.
TLDR
With the exception of two lineages, genome sizes are quite similar and indicate that polyploidization did not play a major role in the history of the genus. Expand

TLDR
This study has demonstrated that both AFLP and double-primer fluorescent ISSR have a great potential for generating a large number of informative characters for phylogenetic analysis of closely related species, especially when ITS diversity is insufficient. Expand
Phylogenetics of amaranthaceae based on matK/trnK sequence data-evidence from parsimony, likelihood, and bayesian analyses
TLDR
Amaranthaceae and Chenopodiaceae together represent the most species-rich monophyletic group in the angiosperm order Caryophyllales and the complex stellate pore ornamentation was reconstructed as having evolved at least twice in parallel. Expand
Relationships between the weedy Amaranthus hybridus (Amaranthaceae) and the grain amaranths.
TLDR
Two hundred fifty-eight individuals from 56 taxa represent ing the three grain amaranth species and two putative weedy progenitors were sampled from their native species’ ranges and subjected to microsatellite testing, finding a distinct A. quitensis group. Expand
Taxonomic revision of the genus Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae) in Italy
TLDR
A taxonomic revision of the genus Amaranthus (Amaranthaceae) in Italy is here presented, with a list of the seven hybrids recorded and their main morphological characteristics. Expand
Floral morphology and taxonomic relations among the genera of Amaranthaceae in the New World and the Hawaiian Islands
TLDR
It is suggested that the type of staminal tubes found in Pseudogomphrena and Froelichia can be derived from that in Alternanthera and froelichiella by reduction of filament length and a fusion of pseudostaminodia with the filaments. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of restriction-site variation in wild and cultivated Amaranthus species (Amaranthaceae)
TLDR
Relationships among wild and cultivated Amaranthus species were examined based upon restriction-site variation in two chloroplast DNA regions and in a nuclear DNA region, suggesting drought tolerance evolved independently several times. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics of Caryophyllales based on nuclear 18S rDNA and plastid rbcL, atpB, and matK DNA sequences.
TLDR
Two additional lineages are potentially appropriate to be elevated to the family level in the future: the genera Lophiocarpus and Corbichonia form a well-supported clade on the basis of molecular and chemical evidence, and Limeum appears to be separated from other Molluginaceae based on both molecular and ultrastructural data.

Phylogeny of Amaranthaceae and Chenopodiaceae and the Evolution of C4 Photosynthesis
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae using sequence variation of the chloroplast gene rbcL indicates that the two families form a well‐supported monophyletic clade that is sister to Achatocarpaceae. Expand
Eritreo-Arabian Affinities of the Socotran Flora as Revealed from the Molecular Phylogeny of Aerva (Amaranthaceae)
TLDR
The data point towards colonization via dispersal, rather than a vicariance origin of the island elements, and the overall biogeographic patterns of Aerva show only limited concordance with other taxonomic groups distributed on Indian Ocean islands. Expand
