Taxonomic descriptions in English and Spanish and a key to 16 closely related species of the Muhlenbergia montana (Nutt.) Hitchc. complex were generated by means of DELTA computer programs, using data gathered from a morphological character list. Data from chromatographic analyses of the flavonoid content of 14 species were recorded in DELTA format and analyzed separately. Both data sets when analyzed independently, and together they suggest that Muhlenbergia virescens (H.B.K.) Kunth is… Expand

ANATOMY OF THE MUHLENBERGIA MONTANA COMPLEX (POACEAE)
TLDR
Results obtained from the phenetic analysis of anatomical data have given independent data to compare with the morphological, phytogeographical, and flavonoid data (previously reported) in determining the relationships of the species. Expand
A LEAF BLADE ANATOMICAL SURVEY OF MUHLENBERGIA (POACEAE: MUHLENBERGIINAE)
M uhlenbergia includes 151 species of mostly New World origin; 133 species are indigenous to North America [although many of these range to Central America (33) and South America (14)]; 38 speciesExpand
A phylogeny and classification of the Muhlenbergiinae (Poaceae: Chloridoideae: Cynodonteae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences.
TLDR
The phylograms suggest that Muhlenbergia originated in North America because the sister (Sohnsia filifolia and Scleropogoninae) is composed of predominantly North American species. Expand
Flavonoids of Lavoisiera, Microlicia and Trembleya (Melastomataceae) and their taxonomic meaning.
TLDR
The data suggest the recognition of Lavoisiera and Microlicia and the lumping of species of Trembleya with either of these genera, and shrubby habits in Microliceae should be regarded as derived from herbaceous ones. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that long-flowers, outcrossing species have evolved in parallel on three separate occasions from short-flowered, more highly selfing species, a trend that is atypical in flowering plants. Expand
Muhlenbergia cualensis and M. michisensis (Poaceae: Eragrostideae): Two New Species from Mexico
TLDR
Two new species of Muhlenbergia cualensis from Jalisco, and M. michisensis from Durango, Mexico, are described and illustrated and a table distinguishing among the new species and related taxa is given. Expand
Flavonoids of the Muhlenbergia montana complex
TLDR
Flavonoid patterns were distinct for all perennial species and identical for the two annual species examined, and Phenetic analysis of the flavonoid characters does not support the inclusion of the annual species M. crispiseta and M. peruviana as part of the M. montana complex. Expand
Phylogenetic systematics of neotropical Hemionitis and Bommeria (Adiantaceae) based on morphology, allozymes, and flavonoids
TLDR
Although none of the results from single-data-set analyses could completely resolve species relationships, cladistic analysis of the combination of all three data sets produced one, dichotomously resolved, hypothetical phylogeny, providing a framework for examining patterns and processes of organismal diversification and character evolution.

TLDR
Four flavonoid geographical races based on twenty flavonol 3-O-glycosides were found to exist in Chenopodium fremontii with those populations from the northern part of the range producing 7-methyl ethers and 3- O-galactosides and glucosides. Expand
