Abstract The order Poales comprises a substantial portion of plant life (7% of all angiosperms and 33% of monocots) and includes taxa of enormous economic and ecological significance. Molecular and morphological studies over the past two decades, however, leave uncertain many relationships within Poales and among allied commelinid orders. Here we present the results of an initial project by the Monocot AToL (Angiosperm Tree of Life) team on phylogeny and evolution in Poales, using sequence data… 
Evolution of Angiosperm Pollen. 3. Monocots1
TLDR
The most rapid rate of state changes in pollen characters, in the evolutionary history of monocots, is estimated to have occurred during the Albian-Turonian stage and may provide insights into the identification of enigmatic fossil pollen grains from this geological time.
A new classification of Cyperaceae (Poales) supported by phylogenomic data
Cyperaceae (sedges) are the third largest monocot family and are of considerable economic and ecological importance. Sedges represent an ideal model family to study evolutionary biology due to their
Plastid genomes and deep relationships among the commelinid monocot angiosperms
TLDR
Cumulative analyses of genes ranked by decreasing numbers of informative characters indicated continued fluctuation in support, even as small genes were added to a nearly complete matrix, contrary to the expected pattern of stabilization in support.
Multilocus phylogeny and phylogenomics of Eriochrysis P. Beauv. (Poaceae-Andropogoneae): Taxonomic implications and evidence of interspecific hybridization.
TLDR
The set of low-copy nuclear genes used in this study seems to be sufficient to resolve phylogenetic relationships and define the circumscriptions of other species complexes in the grass family and relatives, even in the presence of polyploidy and reticulate evolution.
First plastid phylogenomic study reveals potential cyto-nuclear discordance in the evolutionary history of Ficus L. (Moraceae).
TLDR
It is shown that the use of a de novo assembled plastome from within the genus provides less ambiguity and higher coverage across the 59 Ficus and 6 outgroup plASTome assemblies compared to using the nearest available reference plasts outside the genus resulting in improved resolution and higher support of the phylogenetic relationships within Ficus inferred from plastomes data.
Plastid phylogenomics and molecular evolution of Alismatales
TLDR
Ancestral‐state reconstructions support four convergent losses of a functional NADH dehydrogenase complex in Alismatales, including a single loss in Tofieldiaceae, and investigates the molecular evolution of plastid NADH dehydration, a large enzymatic complex that may play a role in photooxidative stress responses.
A 250 plastome phylogeny of the grass family (Poaceae): topological support under different data partitions
TLDR
resolution of these and other critical branch points in the phylogeny of Poaceae will help to better understand the selective forces that drove the radiation of the BOP and PACMAD clades comprising more than 99.9% of grass diversity.
Inference of phylogenetic relationships among the subfamilies of grasses (Poaceae: Poales) using meso-scale exemplar-based sampling of the plastid genome.
TLDR
To clarify phylogenetic relationships among grass (Poaceae) subfamilies and to better resolve the placement of Poaceae in Poales, a survey of plastid genes and associated noncoding regions found general concordance in relationships and support levels among gene regions and data partitions across analyses.
Phylogeny, adaptive radiation, and historical biogeography in Bromeliaceae: insights from an eight-locus plastid phylogeny.
TLDR
A bromeliad phylogeny based on eight plastid regions is used to analyze relationships within the family, test a new, eight-subfamily classification, infer the chronology of b romeliad evolution and invasion of different regions, and provide the basis for future analyses of trait evolution and rates of diversification.
A few-gene plastid phylogenetic framework for mycoheterotrophic monocots.
TLDR
Most mycoheterotrophs can be readily integrated into the broad picture of plant phylogeny using several plastid genes and broad taxonomic sampling, and long branches/elevated substitution rates, missing genes, and occasional contaminants are challenges for plastsid-based phylogenetic inference with full my coheterotrophic taxa.

Large multi-gene phylogenetic trees of the grasses (Poaceae): progress towards complete tribal and generic level sampling.
TLDR
A fully resolved phylogenetic summary tree for the grass family at subfamily level is produced and the most likely relationships of all included tribes in the authors' analysis are indicated.
Identifying the basal angiosperm node in chloroplast genome phylogenies: sampling one's way out of the Felsenstein zone.
TLDR
Whereas long sequences reduce variance in branch lengths and molecular dating estimates, the impact of improved taxon sampling on the rooting of the angiosperm phylogeny together with the results of parametric bootstrap analyses demonstrate how long-branch attraction might mislead genome-scale phylogenetic analyses.
The chloroplast genome of Nymphaea alba: whole-genome analyses and the problem of identifying the most basal angiosperm.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the chloroplast DNA of Nymphaea alba revealed consistent support for Nympholia being a divergent member of a monophyletic dicot assemblage and observations suggesting that the monocot lineage leading to the grasses has the strongest phylogenetic affinity to gymnosperms have general implications for studies of substitution model specification and analyses of concatenated genome data.
Analysis of 81 genes from 64 plastid genomes resolves relationships in angiosperms and identifies genome-scale evolutionary patterns
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees from multiple methods provide strong support for the position of Amborella as the earliest diverging lineage of flowering plants, followed by Nymphaeales and Austrobaileyales, and the plastid genome trees also provide strongSupport for a sister relationship between eudicots and monocots, and this group is sister to a clade that includes Chloranthales and magnoliids.
Phylogeny and subfamilial classification of the grasses (Poaceae)
TLDR
A large collaborative effort has yiel(led a comprehensive study of the phylogeny and a new suhfanilial classification of the grass family (Poaceae/Graminieae) and 1 new subfamily (Danthonioideae) is proposed.
Complete plastid genome sequences of Drimys, Liriodendron, and Piper: implications for the phylogenetic relationships of magnoliids
TLDR
Evolutionary comparisons of three new magnoliid plastid genome sequences confirm that GC content is unevenly distributed across the genome by location, codon position, and functional group, and phylogenetic analyses provide the strongest support so far for the hypothesis that the magnoliids are sister to a large clade that includes both monocots and eudicots.
Hydatellaceae identified as a new branch near the base of the angiosperm phylogenetic tree
TLDR
It is shown that Hydatellaceae, a small family of dwarf aquatics that were formerly interpreted as monocots, are instead a highly modified and previously unrecognized ancient lineage of angiosperms, indicating that water lilies are part of a larger lineage that evolved more extreme and diverse modifications for life in an aquatic habitat than previously recognized.
Phylogenetic Analyses of Basal Angiosperms Based on Nine Plastid, Mitochondrial, and Nuclear Genes
TLDR
This study indicates caution in total evidence approaches in that some of the genes employed added signal that conflicted with the other genes in resolving certain parts of the phylogenetic tree.
Unraveling the evolutionary radiation of the families of the Zingiberales using morphological and molecular evidence.
TLDR
Evidence from branch lengths in the parsimony analyses and from the fossil record suggests that the Zingiberales originated in the Early Cretaceous and underwent a rapid radiation in the mid-Cretaceous, by which time most extant family lineages had diverged.
A Phylogeny of the Grass Family (Poaceae) Based on ndhF Sequence Data
TLDR
Results confirm that certain elements within the Bambusoideae s.l. are basal within the Poaceae and contrast with previous hypotheses that the Pooideae represent a basal or near-basal branch, and indicate that reevaluation of intrafamilial classification is necessary.
