To estimate the evolutionary history of the mustard family (Brassicaceae or Cruciferae), we sampled 113 species, representing 101 of the roughly 350 genera and 17 of the 19 tribes of the family, for the chloroplast gene ndhF. The included accessions increase the number of genera sampled over previous phylogenetic studies by four-fold. Using parsimony, likelihood, and Bayesian methods, we reconstructed the phylogeny of the gene and used the Shimodaira–Hasegawa test (S–H test) to compare the…

Phylogeny and Trichome Evolution in the Plant Family Brassicaceae
To estimate the evolutionary history of the mustard family, 113 species were sampled, representing 101 of the roughly 350 genera and 17 of the 19 tribes of the family, for the chloroplast gene ndhF and the Shimodaira–Hasegawa test (S-H test) was used to examine the utility of trichome branching patterns for describing monophyletic groups in the ndhf phylogeny.
Phylogeny of the Stachys coccinea (Lamiaceae) Complex Based on Molecular and Morphological Data
It is found that morphological variation in this complex insufficiently circumscribed members of the complex, possibly caused by plasticity of diagnostic morphological characters.
Editorial: Evolution and phylogeny of the Brassicaceae
The papers included in this Special Volume of Plant Systematics and Evolution were pre-sented during the XVII International Botani-cal Congress in Vienna, insymposium 8.9 ‘‘Systematics and evolution in Brassicaceae’’ and it is suggested the time is more than ripe to summarize recent progress.
Molecular Phylogenetics and Taxonomy of the Genus Thysanocarpus (Brassicaceae)
The relationships and taxonomy of the genus Thysanocarpus is reassessed based on molecular phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ribosomal and chloroplast sequences and a critical re-examination of morphology and nomenclatural types, but no illuminating phylogenetic structure is found within the tribe Thelypodieae.
Zuloagocardamum (Brassicaceae: Thelypodieae) a New Genus from the Andes Highlands of Northern Argentina
A new genus and species of Brassicaceae from fujuy Province in Argentina, Zuloagocardamum jujuyensis is described and illustrated, and its phylogenetic relationships to nearest relatives are demonstrated.
The structure of leaf trichomes in Proteaceae: taxonomic value, ecology and development
Plant trichomes have many functions including interactions with ecological factors such as solar radiance, drought and predators, and have evolved certain adaptations to these types of habitats, resulting in special trichome structure and density.
Molecules and migration: biogeographical studies in cruciferous plants
An overview on the various biogeographic and phylogeographic studies using various molecular markers and methodological approaches to analyse them is presented, concentrating on studies done with representatives of the Brassicaceae family.
Molecular Systematic of Some Brassicaceae Taxa in Egypt Based on Electrophoretic Isoenzymes Pattern and RAPD Markers
Molecular systematic for twenty two taxa belonging to 9 tribes of Brassicaceae in Egypt was studied by using electrophoretic pattern of three isoenzymes and DNA (RAPD) markers to show that esterase and acid phosphatase could be considered as positive markers while, peroxidase was detected as a negative marker.
A Synopsis Of An Expanded Solms-laubachia (Brassicaceae), and the Description Of Four New Species From Western China1
Abstract Sequence data from the nuclear ribosomal ITS region and the chloroplast trnL-F were used to examine the generic delimitations of Solms-laubachia Muschl., Christolea Cambess., Desideria


Phylogeny of Sisymbrium (Brassicaceae) based on ITS sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA
Using sequence data from the internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA and the 5.8S rRNA gene, this work examined the evolutionary relationships of Old and New World Sisymbrium species with its segregate genera and the validity of O.E. Schulz's classical sectional treatment of SisyMBrium.
Evaluation of Draba oligosperma, D. pectinipila, and D. juniperina complex (Cruciferae)
A proposal to give Draba pectinipila Rollins protection under the Endangered Species Act prompted extensive field studies on this and two closely related taxa, which clarified the status of these three taxa.
Conspectus der „Thlaspi”-Arten Europas, Afrikas und Vorderasiens
As the result of critical investigations in the „Thlaspi”-species of Europe, Africa, and the Near East those species remaining in the genus ThlaspI L. are named and regrouped according to the existing descendance-communities.
How plants split hairs.
The unicellular three-branched trichomes, or 'hairs', of Arabidopsis provide a model system for studying cell morphogenesis in plants and have led to a new view of how trichome morphogenesis might be controlled.
