Apiaceae and Araliaceae (Apiales) represent a particularly troublesome example of the difficulty in understanding evolutionary relationships between tropical-temperate family pairs. Previous studies based on rbcL sequence data provided insights at higher levels, but were unable to resolve fully the family-pair relationship. In this study, sequence data from a more rapidly evolving gene, matK, was employed to provide greater resolution. In Apiales, matK sequences evolve an average of about two… Expand

Relationships of the genus Azorella (Apiaceae) and other hydrocotyloids inferred from sequence variation in three plastid markers
TLDR
The results confirm previous observations that the hydrocotyloids are an unnatural assemblage of taxa from at least four different groups, of which one belongs to Araliaceae and the remaining ones to Apiaceae. Expand
Relationships among "ancient araliads" and their significance for the systematics of Apiales.
TLDR
To reevaluate the phylogenetic position of the "intermediate" araliad genera, molecular data were collected from nuclear (rDNA ITS) and plastid sequences from a complete or near-complete sampling of species in each genus, and relationships among the species within these clades are largely supported by morphological and anatomical data. Expand
Major lineages within Apiaceae subfamily Apioideae: a comparison of chloroplast restriction site and DNA sequence data.
TLDR
Six lineages and one paraphyletic grade are provisionally recognized as informal groups and can serve as the starting point for future, more intensive studies of the subfamily Apioideae. Expand
Evolution in Apiales: nuclear and chloroplast markers together in (almost) perfect harmony
TLDR
Results from this study confirm that Apiales comprise five major lineages: core Apiaceae, core Araliaceae, Pittosporaceae, the Mackinlaya group and the Myodocarpus group, and the nature and extent of the polyphyly is confirmed. Expand
The phylogenetic and taxonomic position of Lilaeopsis (Apiaceae), with notes on the applicability of ITS sequence data for phylogenetic reconstruction
TLDR
As alignment of the ITS sequences is problematic even within the Oenanthe clade, the reliability of phylogenies on the basis of ITS data of higher taxonomic levels in the Apiaceae is questioned, but for phylogenetic analysis within Lilaeopsis ITS sequences may prove useful and unproblematic. Expand
Sympetaly in Apiales (Apiaceae, Araliaceae, Pittosporaceae)
TLDR
Molecular data suggest that the subfamily Hydrocotyloideae is polyphyletic, withHydrocotyle belonging to the lineage not placed within Apiaceae but more closely related to Araliaceae, a position fitting well with the mode of formation of the corolla. Expand
The phylogenetic and taxonomic position of Lilaeopsis (Apiaceae), with notes on the applicability of ITS sequence data for phylogenetic reconstruction
TLDR
The relationships of the genus Lilaeopsis Greene have been difficult to determine primarily due to its simple morphology with entire, linear to spathulate leaves, simple umbels and lack of carpophore, but the reliability of phylogenies on the basis of ITS data of higher taxonomic levels in the Apiaceae is questioned. Expand
The demise of subfamily Hydrocotyloideae (Apiaceae) and the re-alignment of its genera across the entire order Apiales.
TLDR
Plastid data suggest that many former hydrocotyloid genera are non-monophyletic (e.g., Azorella, Schizeilema, and Eremocharis) and are in dire need of additional phylogenetic and taxonomic studies. Expand
Phylogenetic Inference in Sapindaceae sensu lato Using Plastid matK and rbcL DNA Sequences
TLDR
Although many of the current tribes appear paraphyletic or polyphyletic, there is support for the monophyly of some core groups of genera that suggest realignments of tribal concepts that would render them more informative of relationships. Expand
Recent advances in understanding Apiales and a revised classification
TLDR
A unified picture of relationships has now emerged regarding the delimitation of Apiales, which includes the recognition of the new suborder Apiineae (comprising the four core families) and two new subfamilies within Apiaceae (Azorelloideae and Mackinlayoideae). Expand

Higher level relationships of Apiales (Apiaceae and Araliaceae) based on phylogenetic analysis of rbcL sequences
TLDR
Clarification of phylogenetic relationships has concomitantly provided insights into trends of morphological evolution, and suggests that the ancestral apialean taxon was probably bicarpellate, simple-leaved, woody, and paleotropical. Expand
Phylogenetic analyses of Polemoniaceae using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene matK
TLDR
The family as a whole was monophyletic with no support for the segregate family Cobaeaceae, and several well supported groups allowed us to test hypotheses of relationship within Polemoniaceae. Expand
Monophyly and generic relationships of polemoniaceae based on matK Sequences
TLDR
Comparison of chloroplast gene matK sequences places Polemoniaceae apart from Solanaceae near Fouquieriaceae, Ericaceae, Sarraceniaceae, and Diapensiaceae and suggests that Ipomopsis and Linanthus are also polyphyletic. Expand
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. Expand
POLLEN OF KLOTZSCHIA (UMBELLIFERAE): A POSSIBLE LINK TO ARALIACEAE
TLDR
This report presents an example of an umbelliferous genus (Klotzschia) the pollen morphology of which appears to form a link between Umbelliferae and Araliaceae and application of scanning electron microscopy to pollen morphology promises to shed new light on phylogenetic relationships in these two families. Expand
Combining Data in Phylogenetic Systematics: An Empirical Approach Using Three Molecular Data Sets in the Solanaceae
TLDR
Data from sequences of two chloroplast DNA genes, ndhV and rbcL, and from restriction site mapping studies of the entire chloroplane genome were analyzed for the same set of 17 species of Solanaceae and the outgroup Ipomoea, finding the "X = 12" dade is the most well-supported dade within the family. Expand
a molecular phylogeny of apiaceae subfamily Apioideae: evidence from nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer sequences
TLDR
IT sequences are useful for phylogenetic inference among closely related members of Apioideae but, owing to high rates of nucleotide substitution, are less useful in resolving relationships among the more ancestral nodes of the phylogeny. Expand
A Phylogenetic Analysis of Epilobium (Onagraceae) Based on Nuclear Ribosomal DNA Sequences
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny is compatible with some important independent characters and is useful for interpreting morphological and cytological evolution in Epilobium. Expand
Phylogenetics of seed plants : An analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid gene rbcL
TLDR
Two exploratory parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from 475 and 499 species of seed plants, respectively, representing all major taxonomic groups indicate that rbcL sequence variation contains historical evidence appropriate for phylogenetic analysis at this taxonomic level of sampling. Expand
