Leaf anatomical data from 13 taxa of the Muhlenbergia montana complex were surveyed, and 18 critical characters were found. Results obtained from the phenetic analysis of anatomical data have given independent data to compare with the morphological, phytogeographical, and flavonoid data (previously reported) in determining the relationships of the species. An anatomical dendogram illustrates a close corroboration. Leaf anatomy clearly supports the recognition of a close relationship among the… Expand

A phylogeny and classification of the Muhlenbergiinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylograms suggest that Muhlenbergia originated in North America because the sister (Sohnsia filifolia and Scleropogoninae) is composed of predominantly North American species. Expand

TLDR
Ademas, se realizaron observaciones de the epidermis adaxial en algunas especies sudamericanas, utilizando microscopio electronico de barrido (MEB) y no pueden distinguirse, asi como no es posible distinguir Trisetum de Peyritschia E.Fourn. Expand

TLDR
A phenetic comparison of the morphological and chemical features suggests a different rate of divergence for chemical and morphological characters among species in this closely related group of taxa. Expand

Flavonoids of the Muhlenbergia montana complex
TLDR
Flavonoid patterns were distinct for all perennial species and identical for the two annual species examined, and Phenetic analysis of the flavonoid characters does not support the inclusion of the annual species M. crispiseta and M. peruviana as part of the M. montana complex. Expand
