Abstract Kadereit, G., Hohmann, S. & Kadereit, J. W.: A synopsis of Chenopodiaceae subfam. Betoideae and notes on the taxonomy of Beta. — Willdenowia 36 (Special Issue): 9–19. — ISSN 0511-9618; © 2006 BGBM Berlin-Dahlem. doi:10.3372/wi.36.36101 (available via http://dx.doi.org/) A synopsis of the phylogeny and systematics of subfamily Betoideae of the Chenopodiaceae is provided and a modified subfamilial classification proposed. Betoideae contain five or six genera, i.e. Beta, Patellifolia… 

Identity of Tetragonia pentandra and taxonomy and distribution of Patellifolia (Chenopodiaceae)

It is proposed that all members of the Patellifolia clade are treated as a single variable species, P. procumbens, which is strongly supported as monophyletic and weakly supported as sister to a clade with Aphanisma, Oreobliton and Beta.

Understanding Mediterranean-Californian disjunctions: molecular evidence from Chenopodiaceae-Betoideae

The western Eurasian-western North American disjunction of Oreobliton/Aphanisma is more likely to have resulted from the fragmentation of a Beringian than a North Atlantic ancestral range, and it is postulate that the evolution into dry habitats of OreOBliton and Aphanisma took place in parallel in western Eurasia and western North America.

A taxonomic backbone for the global synthesis of species diversity in the angiosperm order Caryophyllales

A taxonomic backbone at the genus level is provided that reflects the current state of knowledge and accepts 749 genera for the Caryophyllales, a major lineage of flowering plants with approximately 12500 species in 39 families.

Evolutionary and Biogeographic Insights on the Macaronesian Beta-Patellifolia Species (Amaranthaceae) from a Time-Scaled Molecular Phylogeny

The results support the Betoideae as a monophyletic group and provide a detailed inference of relationships within this subfamily, revealing a deep genetic differentiation between Beta and Patellifolia species, indicating that the Mediterranean species probably differentiated by the end of the Miocene.

Genetic diversity and differentiation in Patellifolia (Amaranthaceae) in the Macaronesian archipelagos and the Iberian Peninsula and implications for genetic conservation programmes

The genetic data suggest that P. patellaris reproduces mainly by self-fertilisation while P. webbiana have the signature of out-breeders, which is particularly suited to conserve the genetic diversity of the species.

Chloroplastic and nuclear diversity of wild beets at a large geographical scale: Insights into the evolutionary history of the Beta section

The nucleotide diversity of chloroplastic and nuclear sequences on a representative sampling of species and subspecies of the Beta section is analyzed to assess their genetic relationships through phylogenetic and multivariate analyses, relate their genetic diversity to their mating system, and reconsider the ploidy status and the origin of the Canarian Beta macrocarpa.

Plants of Sabkha Ecosystems of the Arabian Peninsula

Sabkhas are unique ecosystems that are highly saline and where specially adapted plants are able to grow, flower, and fruit. In general, saline environments are poor in species – for the Arabian

Evidence for a Common Origin of Homomorphic and Heteromorphic Sex Chromosomes in Distinct Spinacia Species

The data suggest that the Spinacia genus may serve as a good model for investigation of evolutionary mechanisms underlying the emergence of heteromorphic sex chromosome pairs from ancestral homomorphic pairs.

Halophytes of Southwest Asia

Halophytes in SW Asia constitute about half the number of halophyte taxa (and families) recorded for the world and are poor in species.

Phylogeny of Amaranthaceae and Chenopodiaceae and the Evolution of C4 Photosynthesis

A phylogenetic analysis of Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae using sequence variation of the chloroplast gene rbcL indicates that the two families form a well‐supported monophyletic clade that is sister to Achatocarpaceae.

Phylogenetic Relationships

Analysis of characters of Cnemiornis, Euryanas, and the extinct New Zealand swan Cygnus sumnerensis are presented and a revised classification of these taxa is proposed, and selected evolutionary and biogeographic implications are discussed.

Phylogenetics of amaranthaceae based on matK/trnK sequence data-evidence from parsimony, likelihood, and bayesian analyses

Amaranthaceae and Chenopodiaceae together represent the most species-rich monophyletic group in the angiosperm order Caryophyllales and the complex stellate pore ornamentation was reconstructed as having evolved at least twice in parallel.

Sequence data of the plastid ndhF gene were used to reconstruct a phytogeny of the Chenopodiaceae-Amaranthaceae alliance using maximum parsimony, Bayesian, maximum likelihood, and distance based analyses to reveal a monophyletic Chenopodieae-Atripliceae-Sclerolaeneae-Camphorosmeae alliance.

Beta section Beta : biogeographical patterns of variation, and taxonomy

Based on the experimental evidence described in Chapters 2 and 3 conclusions are drawn with respect to the classification of section Beta, and the number of infraspecific taxa in B. vulgaris is extensively reduced, the greatest allozyme diversity is met in accessions originating from the Mediterranean Basin.

Taxonomy of Beta Section Beta

Allozyme studies indicate that the development of self-compatibility and autogamy might have been important in the formation of taxa, and a morphometric analysis of variation, research on the patterns of allozyme differentiation, and studies of available herbarium specimens are included.

Variation in wild populations of annual beet (Beta, Chenopodiaceae)

Among the morphological variation in wild annual populations of sect.Beta only tepal characters show a geographic pattern, and hence can be used to distinguish different taxa. Two morphological types

Taxonomy and cultonomy of beet (Beta vulgaris L.)

The paper includes a short description of concept and rules of the new system for the nomenclature of cultivated plants, as published in the 1995 International Code of Nomenclatures for Cultivated Plants or Cultivated Plant Code, and a proposal to distinguish four cultivar groups.

Observations of fruit shape and other characters in the species of the section Patellares, genus Beta

The complete interfertility and intergradation of morphological characters between B. webbiana and B. procumbens suggests them to be two extremes of a single ecospecies, which has significance in studies of hybridization between sugar beet and the members of this section.
