The Carex acuta L. complex, as defined by Standley, comprises 12 species from section Phacocystis Dumort., one of the largest sections within the genus Carex L. The species of the complex were originally distinguished by their nerved, stipitate perigynia with torulose bases adnate to iridescent achenes. [] Key Result The C. acuta complex was found to be paraphyletic as circumscribed.

Phylogeny and patterns of convergence in Carex section Ovales (cyperaceae): evidence from ITS and 5.8S sequences

Carex L. sect. Ovales Kunth, with approximately 85 species worldwide, is one of the largest sections in the genus and the largest in Carex subg. Vignea (P. Beauv. ex T. Lestib.) Peterm. (ca. 400

Systematics of the Carex aquatilis and C. lenticularis lineages: Geographically and ecologically divergent sister clades of Carex section Phacocystis (Cyperaceae).

Phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ITS and ETS 1f and chloroplast psbA-trnH DNA sequences support the monophyly of a broadly defined Carex aquatilis-Carex lenticularis lineage, which includes C. aquatILis and C. lenticularIS and their allies within section Phacocystis, but neither taxon is monophyletic as currently circumscribed.

Taxonomic delimitation and drivers of speciation in the Ibero-North African Carex sect. Phacocystis river-shore group (Cyperaceae).

The widespread C. elata was found to be a genetically poorly differentiated taxon, whereas the local C. reuteriana displayed geographical structuring, andGeographical factors seem to be the main driver of differentiation for both taxa.

Phylogeny and Classification of Carex Section Ovales (Cyperaceae)

Developing a comprehensive infrasectional classification with a phylogenetic basis would be complicated by the fact that most of the novel morphological characters in the section have evolved within relatively small, independent clades.

Ecological and Evolutionary Diversification within the Genus Carex (Cyperaceae): Consequences for Community Assembly in Subarctic Fens

It is suggested that niche differentiation during the evolution and diversification of a clade of wetland Carex species over the past few million years has resulted in diverse sedge communities that share space and resources in harsh northern peatland habitats.

Toward an accurate taxonomic interpretation of Carex fossil fruits (Cyperaceae): a case study in section Phacocystis in the Western Palearctic.

PREMISE OF THE STUDY Despite growing interest in the systematics and evolution of the hyperdiverse genus Carex, few studies have focused on its evolution using an absolute time framework. This is

Carex cespitosa: reappraisal of its distribution in Europe

A critical revision of the distribution of C. cespitosa in Europe W of the former USSR is presented, based on herbarium material and literature, and it is confirmed the presence of the species in 19 European countries, while its occurrence is considered as doubtful in another five countries.

Genetically diverse but with surprisingly little geographical structure: the complex history of the widespread herb Carex nigra (Cyperaceae)

The genetic structure of the recently colonized northern areas and the long‐standing southern areas are compared, and the potential genetic basis of suggested taxonomic divisions at the rank of species and below are assessed.

DNA Barcoding the Canadian Arctic Flora: Core Plastid Barcodes (rbcL + matK) for 490 Vascular Plant Species

DNA barcodes for the core plastid barcode loci were generated for 490 vascular plant species, representing nearly half of the Canadian Arctic flora and 93% of the flora of theCanadian Arctic Archipelago.

Phylogenetic Relationships in Cariceae (Cyperaceae) Based on ITS (nrDNA) and trnT-L-F (cpDNA) Region Sequences: Assessment of Subgeneric and Sectional Relationships in Carex with Emphasis on Section Acrocystis

A molecular phylogenetic study employing nrDNA ITS and cpDNA trnT-L-F spacer sequences assesses relationships within Carex section Acrocystis and identifies a monophyletic group for more detailed study, suggesting that Cymophyllus, Kobresia, Schoenoxiphium, and Uncinia are nested within carex.

Molecular Systematics of Cyperaceae Tribe Cariceae Based on Two Chloroplast DNA Regions: ndhF and trnL Intron-intergenic Spacer

The results indicate that genus Carex is paraphyletic with respect to Kobresia, Cymophyllus, and Uncinia, and several unispicate Carex species, and a monophyletic Cariceae with 100% bootstrap support is revealed.

The phylogenetic position of Carex section Phyllostachys and its implications for phylogeny and subgeneric circumscription in Carex (Cyperaceae).

Phylogenetic theories inferred from the presence or abnormal growth of the rachilla were not supported by tree topologies, and difficult sectional circumscriptions, such as the separation of sections Laxiflorae and Careyanae, were strongly upheld by sequence data.

Evolution in sedges (Carex, Cyperaceae)

The often suggested connection between Uncinia and unispicate Carex is shown, based on rachilla morphology, to be founded on incorrect interpretation of homology.

Analysis of morphological data using histograms, clustering techniques, and principal components analysis indicate that both species are variable but monotypic in eastern North America.

Anatomical and Chromosomal Studies of Carex Section Phacocystis in Eastern North America

Anatomical, micromorphological, and chromosomal characters were useful in elucidating phenetic relationships among species and in defining subgroups within the section, although these do not correspond to the existing subsectional classifications.

Phylogenetic relationships of 10 grass species: an assessment of phylogenetic utility of the internal transcribed spacer region in nuclear ribosomal DNA in monocots.

Phylogenetic trees of the 10 grass species generated from the ITS sequence data were in general agreement with phylogenies based on molecular data from ribosomal RNA and chloroplast DNA of similar grass taxa.

Phylogenetic analysis of Sorghum and related taxa using internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA

The phylogenetic relationships of the genus Sorghum and related genera were studied by sequencing the nuclear ribosomal DNA (rDNA) internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) and it is indicated that S. arundinaceum race aethiopicum may be the closest wild relatives of cultivated sorghum.
