A phylogeny and classification of the Muhlenbergiinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences.

TLDR
The phylograms suggest that Muhlenbergia originated in North America because the sister (Sohnsia filifolia and Scleropogoninae) is composed of predominantly North American species.

Centropodieae and Ellisochloa, a new tribe and genus in Chloridoideae (Poaceae)

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of 127 species using seven plastid regions to infer the evolutionary relationships of Centropodia, M. papposa, and M. rangei shows they are sister to the remaining tribes in Chloridoideae and provides the carbon isotope ratios for four species indicating that Merxmuellera pappos and M- rangei are photosynthetically C3, and CentropODia glauca and C. mossamdensis are C4.

A molecular phylogeny and classification of Leptochloa (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Chlorideae) sensu lato and related genera.

TLDR
The molecular results support the dissolution of Leptochloa s.l. is polyphyletic and strong support was found for five lineages.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis resolves Trisetum (Poaceae: Pooideae: Koeleriinae) polyphyletic: Evidence for a new genus, Sibirotrisetum and resurrection of Acrospelion

To investigate the evolutionary relationships among the species of Trisetum and other members of subtribe Koeleriinae, a phylogeny based on DNA sequences from four gene regions (ITS, rpl32‐trnL

Systematics and evolution of the needle grasses (Poaceae: Pooideae: Stipeae) based on analysis of multiple chloroplast loci, ITS, and lemma micromorphology

TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis supports the recognition of the following genera and groups and monophyly of Phaenospermateae including Duthieinae is demonstrated, and its inclusion within or treatment as sister to Stipeae is rejected.

Phylogenomics and Plastome Evolution of the Chloridoid Grasses (Chloridoideae: Poaceae)

TLDR
It is indicated that the increase in phylogenetic information in sequences of entire plastomes well resolves and strongly supports relationships among tribes and genera of chloridoid grasses.

Comparative Plastomes and Phylogenetic Analysis of Cleistogenes and Closely Related Genera (Poaceae)

TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of complete plastomes indicated that Cleistogenes is sister to a clade composed of Orinus and Triodia, whereas it did not support the sister relationship between the recently proposed subtribe Orininae (Cleistogenedes and Orinus) andTriodia.

A molecular phylogeny of Eragrostis (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Eragrostideae): making lovegrass monophyletic in Australia

TLDR
A phylogeny based on four DNA molecular markers, consistent with recognition of an expanded Eragrostis Wolf in Australia, is presented and the following new combinations for Australian taxa are proposed: E.Peterson and Sporobolus ramigerus (F.K.Simon) R.L.Barrett & P.M. peterson, E. petersen and schultzii var.

A Phylogeny of Chloridoideae (Poaceae) Based on matK Sequences

TLDR
DNA sequences of the plastid gene matK for 74 species representing 56 chloridoid genera and all tribes and subtribes were used to reconstruct a phylogeny for the Chloridoideae, providing a framework for further studies at the tribal and generic levels.

Phylogenetics of Chloridoideae (Gramineae): a Preliminary Study Based on Nuclear Ribosomal Internal Transcribed Spacer and Chloroplast trnL–F Sequences

TLDR
The phylogeny of Chloridoideae (Gramineae) was inferred from parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from two genomes, and suggested significant homoplasy in morphological traits, including inflorescence type, number of florets per spikelet, and number of lemma nerves.

A phylogeny and classification of the Muhlenbergiinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences.

TLDR
The phylograms suggest that Muhlenbergia originated in North America because the sister (Sohnsia filifolia and Scleropogoninae) is composed of predominantly North American species.

Phylogenetics of Muhlenbergiinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae, Cynodonteae) based on ITS and trnL-F DNA sequences

TLDR
A phylogenetic study of Muhlenbergiinae based on parsimony analysis of DNA sequences of the nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer region and chloroplast suggests two subtypes of C4 photosynthesis, NADME and PCK, are thought to occur in Mhlenbergia.

A Molecular Phylogeny of the Grass Family (Poaceae) Based on the Sequences of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA (ITS)

TLDR
The ITS phylogeny of the grass family, and evidence from the chloroplast genome, cytogenetics, fossil records, biogeography, and plate tectonic theory, suggest that the origin of the Grasses is probably ‘out of South America’.

Is Eragrostis (Poaceae) Monophyletic? Insights from Nuclear and Plastid Sequence Data

TLDR
Erichrostis is a monophyletic group with the inclusion of four segregate genera: Acamptoclados, Diandrochloa, Neeragrostis, and Pogonarthria, and the placement of Cladoraphis and Stiburus is uncertain.

Large multi-gene phylogenetic trees of the grasses (Poaceae): progress towards complete tribal and generic level sampling.

Phylogenetic relationships in Southern African chloridoid grasses (Poaceae) based on nuclear and chloroplast sequence data

TLDR
In this analysis, the chloridoid grasses were monophyletic and two large groups, corresponding to the tribes Eragrostideae and Cynodonteae, were polyphyletic; Erag Frostis, the largest genus in the subfamily, was polyphylettic; Otherwise, high support levels were found at species and generic level.

A molecular phylogeny of the grass subfamily Panicoideae (Poaceae) shows multiple origins of C4 photosynthesis.

TLDR
Based on this sample of species, it is inferred that C(4) photosynthesis has evolved independently several times, although a single origin with multiple reversals and several reacquisitions is only slightly less parsimonious.

Phylogenetic structure of the grass subfamily Pooideae based on comparison of plastid matK gene-3'trnK exon and nuclear ITS sequences

TLDR
The results do not reveal a significant role of past hybridisation, plastid lineage sorting or reticulation in the evolutionary diversification of the major lineages of the grass subfamily Pooideae and a largely well-supported pattern of divergence is results in.
