A molecular phylogeny and classification of the Cynodonteae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae) with four new genera: Orthacanthus, Triplasiella, Tripogonella, and Zaqiqah; three new subtribes: Dactylocteniinae, Orininae, and Zaqiqahinae; and a subgeneric classification of Distichlis.

In the most recent classification of the grasses, the sub­ family Chloridoideae Kunth ex Beilschm. includes five tribes: Centropodieae P.M.Peterson & al., Triraphideae P.M.Peterson, Eragrostideae Stapf, Zoysieae Benth., and the Cynodonteae Dumort. (Soreng & al., 2015, 2016; Peterson & al., in press). The Cynodonteae currently includes 839 species in 96 genera and 18 subtribes (Peterson & al., 2014a, 2015a, b, in press; Soreng & al., 2015), and it has received high support as a A molecular… Expand
A worldwide phylogenetic classification of the Poaceae (Gramineae) II: An update and a comparison of two 2015 classifications
TLDR
A new worldwide phylogenetic classification of 11 506 grass species in 768 genera, 12 subfamilies, seven supert tribes, 52 tribes, five supersubtribes, and 90 subtribes is presented and a radial tree illustrating the hierarchical relationships among the subtribes, tribes, and subfam families is included.

Revision of Muhlenbergia (Poaceae, Chloridoideae, Cynodonteae, Muhlenbergiinae) in Peru: classification, phylogeny, and a new species, M.romaschenkoi
TLDR
A taxonomic treatment, phylogeny based on analysis of six DNA sequence markers and classification of Muhlenbergia for Peru is given, finding that the type of Podosemumangustatum clearly aligns with what was referring to as the hybrid between this species and M.rigida. Expand
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.

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. Expand
A phylogeny of species near Agrostis supporting the recognition of two new genera, Agrostula and Alpagrostis (Poaceae, Pooideae, Agrostidinae) from Europe.
TLDR
Two new genera are described and a key separating Agrostula and Alpagrostis from Agrostis s.s. (including the type and most species of Neoschischkinia), that separates into two clades corresponding to A. AgrostIS and A. Vilfa is provided. Expand
Monograph of Diplachne (Poaceae, Chloridoideae, Cynodonteae)
TLDR
This monograph provides detailed descriptions of all taxa, a key to the species and subspecies, geographic distributions and information on the anatomy of leaves, stems, lemmatal micromorphology and discussions of the chromosome numbers. Expand
Diversity, systematics, and evolution of Cynodonteae inflorescences (Chloridoideae – Poaceae)
TLDR
Ancestral reconstructions of morphological characters allowed us to suggest that the ancestor of the group might have had an inflorescence with the form of a raceme of spikelets, non-truncated and bearing first-order branches, which might have diverged this lineage. Expand
Checklist of the grasses of India
A checklist of the grasses of India is presented, as compiled from survey of all available literature. Of the twelve subfamilies of grasses, ten are represented in India. Most subfamilies have beenExpand
A 250 plastome phylogeny of the grass family (Poaceae): topological support under different data partitions
TLDR
resolution of these and other critical branch points in the phylogeny of Poaceae will help to better understand the selective forces that drove the radiation of the BOP and PACMAD clades comprising more than 99.9% of grass diversity. Expand
Extremely low nucleotide diversity among thirty-six new chloroplast genome sequences from Aldama (Heliantheae, Asteraceae) and comparative chloroplast genomics analyses with closely related genera
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis shows that Aldama is not monophyletic due to the position of the Mexican species A. dentata, and all Brazilian species form a strongly supported clade. Expand
