Subfamily Cliloridoideae (Poaceae) in tlie New World includes 72 genera (61 native, 11 introduced), 678 species (607 native), and, including intraspecific taxa, 817 total taxa. The five largest genera are Muhlenbergia (147 species), Eragrostis (111), Sporobolus (76), Bouteloua (57), and Chloris (35). Three tribes are recognized in this study: Cynodonteae, Eragrostideae, and Zoysieae, with ten, three, and two subtribes, respectively. Cynodonteae, the largest tribe, comprise 58 genera and 451… Expand

A Phylogeny of Chloridoideae (Poaceae) Based on matK Sequences
TLDR
DNA sequences of the plastid gene matK for 74 species representing 56 chloridoid genera and all tribes and subtribes were used to reconstruct a phylogeny for the Chloridoideae, providing a framework for further studies at the tribal and generic levels. Expand
A chloroplast DNA analysis of Chaboissaea (Poaceae: Eragrostideae)
TLDR
Cladistic analysis indicates that Chaboissaea subbiflora is the sister to the remaining three species in the genus, followed by C. atacamensis and C. ligulata, both of which are extremely closely related and differ by only four autapomorphies in the latter. Expand
Studies on the origin, evolution, and distribution of the Gramineae. III. The tribes of the subfamily Eragrostoideae
TLDR
Geographical and taxonomic evidence indicates that the Eragrostoideae may have originated in tropical or subtropical Africa at least as early as the Oligocene and suggests that the subfamily is a very old one. Expand
An expanded circumscription of Bouteloua (Gramineae: Choridoideae): new combinations and names
TLDR
The circumscription of Bouteloua was expanded to include species formerly positioned in the satellite genera Buchloe, Buchlomimus, Cathestecum, Cyclostachya, Pentarrhaphis, Pringleochloa, and Soderstromia, resulting in 57 species that are monophyletic and comprises 57 species. Expand
GONDWANAN EVOLUTION OF THE GRASS ALLIANCE OF FAMILIES (POALES)

  • Evolution; international journal of organic evolution
  • 2002
TLDR
Phylogenetic interrelationships among all 18 families of Poales were assessed by cladistic analysis of chloroplast DNA rbcL and atpB sequences from 65 species, showing well-supported main clades and sister group relationships that help in elucidating the evolution of grasses and the grass spikelet. Expand
A revision of Blepharoneuron (Poaceae: Eragrostideae)
TLDR
The present revision is based on field work, combined with laboratory and herbarium studies of morphology and chromosome numbers, and suggests that M. shepherdii is more closely related to B. tricholepis than to other species of Muhlenbergia and belongs in Blepharoneuron. Expand
CLADISTIC PARSIMONY ANALYSIS OF INTERNAL TRANSCRIBED SPACER REGION (NRDNA)SEQUENCES OF BOUTELOUA AND RELATIVES (GRAMINEAE : CHLORIDOIDEAE)
TLDR
The phylogeny of Boute/oua and relatives (Gramineae: Chloridoideae) employing cladistic parsimony analysis of nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer region was estimated using PAUP and suggested homoplasy in morphological, anatomical, and breeding system traits. Expand
Phylogenetics and character evolution in the grass family (Poaceae): Simultaneous analysis of morphological and Chloroplast DNA restriction site character sets
A phylogenetic analysis of the grass family (Poaceae) was conducted using two character sets, one representing variation in 364 mapped and cladistically informative restriction sites from all regionsExpand
Photosynthetic pathways and the geographical distribution of grasses in South West Africa/Namibia.
TLDR
Within the aspartate forming group the results show that it is specifically the NAD-me type of species which dominate in areas of very low precipitation, notably in the Namib and pre-Namib areas where rainfall is less than 200 mm/yr. Expand
Neotropical Floristic Diversity: Phytogeographical Connections Between Central and South America, Pleistocene Climatic Fluctuations, or an Accident of the Andean Orogeny?
TLDR
The geological background is reviewed, the composition of the extant Neotropical flora is summarized, the striking ecological consistency of many taxa and life forms is pointed out, and how some of the present phytogeographical patterns have developed from the interplay of these factors are suggested.
