We present here a revised classification of Santalales, an angiosperm order that contains 18 families, 160 genera, and over 2200 species. Both nonparasitic and parasitic flowering plants occur in the traditionally circumscribed family Olacaceae whereas all other families are composed entirely of parasites. The five evolutionary radiations of aerial parasitism produced mistletoes that constitute most of the generic and specific diversity seen in the order. This classification, although based… Expand
Lacomucinaea , a new monotypic genus in Thesiaceae (Santalales)
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic analysis using nuclear ribosomal ITS and the chloroplast trnLF spacer for representatives of all genera in Thesiaceae showed that Lacomucinaea is sister to Osyridicarpos, further supporting this relationship suggested by stem anatomy characters. Expand
Phylogeny and a new tribal classification of Opiliaceae (Santalales) based on molecular and morphological evidence
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of the family and its close relatives using a combined dataset of the nuclear ribosomal and chloroplast rbcL, matK, and trnL‐F regions strongly supported the monophyly of Opiliaceae. Expand
A taxonomic revision of Thesium section Hagnothesium (Santalaceae) and description of a new species, T. quartzicolum
Abstract Thesium L., section Hagnothesium is endemic to the Greater Cape Floristic Region (GCFR), South Africa. In the past there has been a propensity in revisionary work of the section HagnothesiumExpand
A taxonomic evaluation of the Thesium confine species complex (Santalaceae)
TLDR
Thesium spartioides is synonymised under T. confine, T. durum is retained as a separate species and typification, nomenclature, descriptions and distribution ranges of the studied species were updated. Expand
Families and genera of Chinese angiosperms: a synoptic classification based on APG III
TLDR
This study investigates circumscriptions of families and genera of native and introduced angiosperms in China according to the APG III classification system and recent phylogenetic studies and found that there are 258 native and 55 introduced families, and 2,872 introduced genera in China. Expand
Thesiumnautimontanum, a new species of Thesiaceae (Santalales) from South Africa
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses using nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer sequences place this taxon as sister to all African, Madagascan and South American Thesium species. Expand
Inflorescence evolution in Santalales: integrating morphological characters and molecular phylogenetics.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY The sandalwood order (Santalales) includes members that present a diverse array of inflorescence types, some of which are unique among angiosperms. This diversity presents notExpand
A taxonomic revision of the Thesium scirpioides species complex (Subgenus Frisea, Santalaceae) near endemic to South Africa
TLDR
A comprehensive taxonomic revision of the T. scirpioides complex is presented, including an identification key, updated nomenclature and typifications, descriptions, diagnostic characters, distribution maps and conservation notes. Expand
Revisión taxonómica del género sudamericano Quinchamalium (Schoepfiaceae)
TLDR
A taxonomic treatment of the monospecific genus Quinchamalium is presented, and 28 names of species or infraspecific taxa are reduced to synonymy of Q. chilense for the first time. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Evolutionary Trends in Orobanchaceae
TLDR
Molecular data support phylogenetic placement of the major weedy species as suggested by morphology, but so far failed in identifying their most closely related wild congeners. Expand

A Molecular Phylogeny of Santalaceae (Santalales)
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses of all genera of Santalaceae, as well as Viscaceae and selected Opiliaceae, using DNA sequences from nuclear small-subunit ribosomal DNA and chloroplast DNA reveal that the family is polyphyletic and that the genera, as traditionally classified, occur in nine well-supported clades.

A classification for extant ferns
We present a revised classification for extant ferns, with emphasis on ordinal and familial ranks, and a synopsis of included genera. Our classification reflects recently published phylogeneticExpand
Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships of Olacaceae and Related Santalales
TLDR
The present molecular phylogenetic study has obtained DNA sequence data for all but two of the 28 genera in the family Olacaceae and resolved seven clades, well-supported by molecular and morphological characters. Expand
A Morphological Cladistic Analysis of Olacaceae
TLDR
Optimization of trophic mode on the consensus tree shows that root hemiparasitism had a single origin in Santalales, and Examination of character transformations confirms several assumptions of evolutionary trends within Olacaceae and Santalale, but others appear to be more complex than expected.

A Molecular Phylogeny of the Feathery Mistletoe Misodendrum
TLDR
Six species of aerial hemiparasites endemic to temperate forests of Chile and Argentina that parasitize Nothofagus and one subgenera, Misodendrum, generally agree with previous taxonomic classifications. Expand

Evolutionary relationships in the showy mistletoe family (Loranthaceae).
TLDR
The three root parasites, Nuytsia, Atkinsonia, and Gaiadendron, are supported as successive sister taxa to the remaining genera, resulting in a monophyletic group of aerial parasites. Expand
The classification of the generic segregates of Phrygilanthus (= Notanthera) of the Loranthaceae
TLDR
Analyses of floral morphology, inflorescence structure, life form, fruit type, and especially chromosome numbers indicate that Phrygilanthus is a highly heterogeneous and artificial assemblage containing elements now referable to the following ten genera: Cecarria, Desmaria, Gaiadendron, Ligaria, Muellerina, Notanthera, Psittacanthus, Struthanthus, Tripodanthus, andTristerix.

A revision of the Loranthaceae of Australia and New Zealand
TLDR
The Australian Loranthaceae comprise 10 genera, 62 species, 13 subspecies, and 4 varieties and the above endemism figures are based on the assumption that the species is not present in New Zealand. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Santalales and relatives
TLDR
These data provide the first nucleotide sequences for any parasitic flowering plant and support the contention that rRNA sequence analysis can result in robust phylogenetic comparisons at the family level and above. Expand
