Abstract.As part of an ongoing project on the phylogeny and taxonomy of Chenopodiaceae with emphasis on the evolution of photosynthetic pathways, we sequenced the nuclear ribosomal ITS region and two chloroplast DNA regions (atpB-rbcL and psbB-psbH) of 43 taxa belonging to subfamily Suaedoideae (Chenopodiaceae). Our sampling covered 41 of c. 82 known species and subspecies of Suaeda, beside several taxa not yet described, the monotypic genera Bienertia and Borszczowia as well as some… 

Phylogenetic Relationships in the Salicornioideae / Suaedoideae / Salsoloideae s.l. (Chenopodiaceae) Clade and a Clarification of the Phylogenetic Position of Bienertia and Alexandra Using Multiple DNA Sequence Datasets

This study focused on the relationships of the main lineages within this clade with an emphasis on the placement of the single cell functioning C4 genus Bienertia using maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian inference phylogenetic analyses of the nuclear ribosomal ITS and five chloroplast DNA regions.

Monophyly and infrageneric variation of Corispermum L. (Chenopodiaceae), evidence from sequence data psbB-psbH, rbcL and ITS

The phylogenetic trees confirm that the tribe Corispermeae is monophyletic, Corispermum and Agriophyllum have a close relationship, and the evolution of morphological characters for fruit wing and apex is consistent with the sectional division of Cor ispermum, especially to the East Asian and Chinese taxa.

New insights in Salicornia L. and allied genera (Chenopodiaceae) inferred from nrDNA sequence data

The phylogenetic analysis based on ITS results distinguished two groups of Salicornia species which fitted with ploidy level: one group consisted of diploid species, and the second of tetraploid ones, with polyploidy arising independently in the two groups.

Phylogenetic analysis of the Australian Salicornioideae (Chenopodiaceae) based on morphology and nuclear DNA

The current tribal classification of the Salicornioideae was not supported in the molecular analysis and three major clades received strong bootstrap support: Microcnemum+Arthrocnemum, Sarcocornia+Salicornia, and the endemic Australian genera.

Diversification of the Old World Salsoleae s.l. (Chenopodiaceae): Molecular Phylogenetic Analysis of Nuclear and Chloroplast Data Sets and a Revised Classification

A first comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of tribe Salsoleae s.l. (Salsoloideae: Chenopodiaceae) is presented based on maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood analysis of nuclear ribosomal

Phylogenetic relationships and genetic diversity of the Salicornieae (Chenopodiaceae) native to the Atlantic coasts of France

Conflicting nuclear versus plastid phylogenetic positions of some tetraploid samples, referred to as S. fragilis, indicate that they most likely derive from a reticulate evolution.

Radiation of the Australian Salicornioideae (Chenopodiaceae)--based on evidence from nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences.

It is hypothesized that the expansion of the Australian endemic Salicornioideae most likely occurred during the Late Miocene to Pliocene, when increasing aridity caused the formation of extensive salt lakes along endorheic paleodrainage channels.

The complete chloroplast genome of Suaeda physophora Pall. (Chenopodiaceae)

A complete chloroplast genome of S. physophora was sequenced and assembled and the genus Suaeda forms a monophyletic taxon, and S. Physophora is closely related to S. eltonica.

Molecular phylogeny of Atripliceae (Chenopodioideae, Chenopodiaceae): Implications for systematics, biogeography, flower and fruit evolution, and the origin of C4 photosynthesis.

UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Atripliceae (Chenopodiaceae), including Atriplex (300 spp.) as the largest genus of the family, are an ecologically important group of steppes and semideserts

Phylogeny of Salsoleae s.l. (Chenopodiaceae) based on DNA sequence data from ITS, psbB–psbH, and rbcL, with emphasis on taxa of northwestern China

To reconstruct phylogeny and verify the monophyly of major subgroups, a total of 52 species representing almost all species of Salsoleae s.l. in China were sampled, with analysis based on three molecular markers using maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian inference methods.



Leaf anatomy and subgeneric affiliations of C3 and C4 species of Suaeda (Chenopodiaceae) in North America.

North American species of this genus were investigated to determine whether C3 and C4 leaf anatomy are consistent within the two sections of Suaeda, Chenopodina and Limbogermen, present on this continent, and these findings throw new light on the infrageneric taxonomy ofThis genus.

A remarkable new leaf type with unusual photosynthetic tissue in a central Asiatic genus of Chenopodiaceae.

A new leaf type with 1-layered chlorenchyma is described as “borszczovoid” and compared with other leaf types in subfamily Salsoloideae and a13C values are given for the first time from eight species of Chenopodiaceae.

Bienertia cycloptera Bunge ex Boiss., Chenopodiaceae, another C4 Plant without Kranz Tissues286

The hypothesis is developed that in species or groups of taxa specific leakages of their C4 systems do occur and this corresponds well with the variance in data from different individuals and populations.

Photosynthetic pathways inChenopodiaceae from Africa, Asia and Europe with their ecological, phytogeographical and taxonomical importance

Close taxonomic relationships between photosynthetic pathways and infrageneric classification in genera with both types of C3 and C4, like Atriplex andSuaeda are found.

A new species of Suaeda (Chenopodiaceae) from the Altai, Central Asia

The species is of particular interest for the phylogeny of the genus because of its rare diploid chromosome number of 2n = 18 and is endemic to high-mountain semideserts in the Russian Altai and to the Gobi Altai in Mongolia.

Contributions to the Flora of Iraq: XIII. Notes on some genera of Chenopodiaceae

The key to Iraqi Cornulaca devised is published here to be of service since the volume of the 'Flora of Iraq' in which the Chenopodiaceae will appear will not be published for several years yet.

A new species

The only previously known species of Myrsidea from bulbuls, M. warwicki ex Ixos philippinus, is redescribed and sixteen new species are described; they and their type hosts are described.

Sequence variation of non-coding regions of chloroplast DNA of soybean and related wild species and its implications for the evolution of different chloroplast haplotypes

The different cpDNA types may not have originated monophyletically, but rather may have differentiated from a common ancestor in different evolutionary directions.

Direct amplification of the entire ITS region from poorly preserved plant material using recombinant PCR.

This recombinant PCR approach, taking into account the +A bases added by several Taq DNA polymerases, will also be useful with other marker regions used in molecular phylogenetics.
