Recent cladistic analyses are revealing the phylogeny of flowering plants in increasing detail, and there is support for the monophyly of many major groups above the family level. With many elements of the major branching sequence of phylogeny established 
Ancient flowering plants: DNA sequences and angiosperm classification
Phylogenetic analyses of gene sequences provide a clear pattern of which extant flowering plant genera diversified earliest. Combined with complete genomic sequences, these data will vastly improveExpand
Tracing History Phylogenetic, Taxonomic, and Biogeographic Research in the Colchicum Family
A phylogeny of 73 taxa representing all genera of Colchicaceae, except the monotypic Kuntheria, shows that the largest number of taxa are related to mitochondria, which is a sign of a “spatially bottleneck” in the family. Expand
Phylogenetic Support and Chloroplast Genome Evolution in Sileneae (Caryophyllaceae)
Two branch support methods, Bayesian posterior probablities and bootstrap frequencies, were evaluated with simulated data and found to be compatible with real-world phylogenies. Expand
Evolution and biodiversity of the Ixoroideae (Rubiaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships within subfamily Ixoroideae of the coffee family are investigated by phylogenetic reconstruction of molecular data, including regions of the chloroplast DNA (matK, ndExpand
The Role of Phylogenetics in Comparative Genetics1
This work has shown that comparative comparisons of plant species or gene sequences in a phylogenetic context can provide the most meaningful insights into biology. Expand
Morphology in current trends of plant systematics
It has become clear that Arnborella is the basalmost genus in angiosperm evolution, followed by the divergent of Nymphaeales and Illiciales, and based on phylogenetic trees, can try studies on character evolution starting from the bas almost plant group toward derived ones. Expand
A genus‐level phylogenetic linear sequence of monocots
The sequence is provided in a numbered list of each of the 1225 genera in 75 monocot families, together with a complementary alphabetical list, which represents a standardized tool for the organisation ofmonocot herbarium collections. Expand
Recent progress in reconstructing angiosperm phylogeny.
This work confirms Amborella as the sister of all other angiosperms, confirming some previously proposed lineages and redefining other groups consistent with their phylogeny, which enables the exploration of both genotypic and phenotypic diversification among angios perms. Expand
Abstract Genetic change is a necessary component of speciation, but the relationship between rates of speciation and molecular evolution remains unclear. We use recent phylogenetic data toExpand
The Complete Chloroplast Genome of Trichopus zeylanicus, And Phylogenetic Analysis with Dioscoreales
Comparative analysis revealed that the IR regions are more conserved than the SC regions, and Phylogenetic analysis gave insight into the evolutionary history of Trichopus zeylanicus. Expand
