A molecular phylogeny of the subtribe Sporobolinae and a classification of the subfamily Chloridoideae (Poaceae)

  title={A molecular phylogeny of the subtribe Sporobolinae and a classification of the subfamily Chloridoideae (Poaceae)},
  author={Paul M. Peterson and Konstantin Romaschenko and Yolanda Herrera Arrieta and Jeffery M. Saarela},
The classi cation of the subtribe Sporobolinae containing the following six genera is poorly understood: Calamovilfa ( ve species endemic to North Amer i ca), Crypsis (11 species endemic to Asia and Africa), Psilolemma (one species endemic to Africa), Spartina (17 species centered in North Amer i ca), Sporobolus (186 species distributed worldwide), and Thellungia (one species from Africa and Asia). The goal of this study was to reconstruct the evolutionary history of the Sporobolinae using… Expand

Application of 5S Ribosomal DNA for Molecular Taxonomy of Subtribe Loliinae (Poaceae)
Abstract The genus Festuca L. (subtribe Loliinae), which encompasses about 500 species, is one of the largest genera of the Poeae tribe and is distributed worldwide. The taxonomy of the genus FestucaExpand
A molecular phylogeny of Eragrostis (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Eragrostideae): making lovegrass monophyletic in Australia
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 250 plastome phylogeny of the grass family (Poaceae): topological support under different data partitions
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
First insight into the phenolic content of Spartina maritima: isolation, characterization and quantification of four C-glycosidic flavonoids
This work constitutes the first phenolic profiling of S. maritima and should provide a foundation for further studies, considering the reported biological activities of C-glycosidic flavonoids, and the lack of knowledge of the phenolic chemistry of the genus Spartina. Expand
