The phylogenetic relationships of Costaceae, a tropical monocotyledonous family sister to the gingers (Zingiberaceae), were investigated with a combination of two chloroplast loci (the trnL-F locus, including the trnL intron, the 3'trnL exon, and the trnL-F intergenic spacer, and the trnK locus, including the trnK intron and the matK coding region) and one nuclear locus (ITS1-5.8s-ITS2). The resulting parsimony analysis of selected taxa that demonstrate the range of floral morphological…

Systematics and Evolution of the Tropical Monocot Family Costaceae (Zingiberales): A Multiple Dataset Approach
Abstract A phylogenetic analysis of molecular (ITS, trnL-F, trnK including the matK coding region) and morphological data is presented for the pantropical monocot family Costaceae (Zingiberales),
A new phylogeny-based generic classification of Costaceae (Zingiberales)
TLDR
The large pantropical genus Costus is found to be polyphyletic and is divided into four genera, three of which are new and has now a more concise generic concept including morphological synapomorphies previously absent due to the polymorphic nature of the prior nonmonophyletic assemble.
The phylogeny and a new classification of the gingers (Zingiberaceae): evidence from molecular data.
TLDR
New phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences of the nuclear internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and plastid matK regions suggest that at least some of these morphological traits are homoplasious and three of the tribes are paraphyletic.
Between cancer and capricorn: phylogeny, evolution and ecology of the primarily tropical Zingiberales.
TLDR
The phylogenetic diversification and biogeographic dispersal of the Zingiberales was in part driven by the evolutionary radiation and diversification of their associated animal pollinators, which include bats, birds, non-flying mammals, and insects.
Evolution of species diversity in the genus Chamaecostus (Costaceae): molecular phylogenetics and morphometric approaches
TLDR
The results show that while Chamaecostus is strongly monophyletic, C. cuspidatus is found to be sister to a clade of some but not all samples of C. subsessilis, making it necessary to acknowledge more than one species in the C.substantialis complex.
The evolutionary and biogeographic origin and diversification of the tropical monocot order zingiberales
TLDR
Ancestral Gondwanan vicariance combined with a potential Laurasian distribution and multiple secondary dispersal events within families during the Tertiary can explain the main biogeographic events leading to the current pantropical distribution of this tropical order.

Gondwanan Vicariance or Dispersal in the Tropics? The Biogeographic History of the Tropical Monocot Family Costaceae (Zingiberales)
TLDR
The results of the temporal analysis based on extant taxa indicate that the initial diversification within Costaceae occurred approximately 65 million years ago, long after the final break up of the Gondwanan supercontinent.

Unraveling the evolutionary radiation of the families of the Zingiberales using morphological and molecular evidence.
TLDR
Evidence from branch lengths in the parsimony analyses and from the fossil record suggests that the Zingiberales originated in the Early Cretaceous and underwent a rapid radiation in the mid-Cretaceous, by which time most extant family lineages had diverged.
The phylogeny and a new classification of the gingers (Zingiberaceae): evidence from molecular data.
TLDR
New phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences of the nuclear internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and plastid matK regions suggest that at least some of these morphological traits are homoplasious and three of the tribes are paraphyletic.
The Phyllotaxy of Costus (Costaceae)
TLDR
A morphological and developmental study of three species of Costus revealed a number of facts about this unusual phyllotactic pattern, including that in all three species, the cataphylls and foliage leaves have tubular sheaths, while the inflorescence bracts are nonsheathing and spiromonostichy is only loosely correlated with closed leaf sheaths.
Biogeography and floral evolution of baobabs (Adansonia, Bombacaceae) as inferred from multiple data sets.
TLDR
The phylogeny does not permit unambiguous reconstruction of floral evolution but suggests the plausible hypothesis that hawkmoth pollination was ancestral in Adansonia and that there were two parallel switches to pollination by mammals in the genus.
THE PHYLOGENY OF ELATEROIDEA (COLEOPTERA), OR WHICH TREE IS BEST TODAY?

  • 1995
TLDR
The conflict found between the results obtained here and those presented by other workers using a large suite of larval characters were shown to be caused by an incongruent data matrix used in the latter study—the larval data set resulted in a polyphyletic ingroup and suggests relationships quite different from adult data alone.
PHYLOGENY OF THE SCITAMINEAE—MORPHOLOGICAL AND ANATOMICAL CONSIDERATIONS
TLDR
This article is a brief summary of the major results from recent studies on the anatomy and morphology of the vegetative organs of the Scitamineae, and permits an introduction of ideas which originated only as the survey was completed.
A Concern for Evidence and a Phylogenetic Hypothesis of Relationships among Epicrates (Boidae, Serpentes)
TLDR
High levels of character congruence were observed among 89 biochemical and morphological synapomorphies scored on 10 species of Epicrates, and the consensus cladogram was consistent with the phylogenetic interpretation attached to the resulting hypothesis, which is a consensus of two equally parsimonious cladograms.
THE LIMITS OF AMINO ACID SEQUENCE DATA IN ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENETIC RECONSTRUCTION
  • K. Bremer
  • Biology
    Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 1988
TLDR
Cladistic analysis of amino acid sequence data, including evaluation of all equally or almost equally parsimonious cladograms, shows that much homoplasy (parallelisms and reversals) is present and that few or no well supported monophyletic groups of families can be demonstrated.
Phylogenetic congruence and discordance among one morphological and three molecular data sets from Pontederiaceae.
TLDR
A morphological data set and three sources of data from the chloroplast genome were used to reconstruct the phylogenetic history of the pickerelweed family Pontederiaceae, and several statistical tests of incongruence indicate significant heterogeneity between molecules and morphology.
