Comprehensive Summaries of Uppsala Dissertations from the Faculty of Science and Technology 761. 50 pp. Uppsala. ISBN 91-554-5436-4. This thesis deals with evolutionary relationships within the asterids, a group of plants comprising about one-third of all flowering plants. Two new families are recognised: Pennantiaceae and Stemonuraceae. The woody Pennantia from New Zealand and Australia is the sole… 



Studies in the Alseuosmiaceae

The association of different morphological and anatomical floral features supports the contention that primitive characters tend to be associated with one another in their distribution throughout the members of a taxon.

Phylogenetic Studies in the Euasterids II: With Particular Reference to Asterales and Escalloniaceae

Using the recently developed Bayesian approach to phylogenetic reconstruction, in combination with a dataset consisting of the atpB, ndhF and rbcL nucleotide sequences, a resolved and fairly well supported phylogeny of the Euasterids II could be reconstructed.

Vegetative anatomy and the affinities of Aquifoliaceae, Sphenostemon, Phelline, and Oncotheca

The anatomy of leaf, node, twig, and bark of Ilex, Nemopanthus, Oncotheca, Phelline, and Sphenostemon is described, together with the wood anatomy of the 4 latter genera, and it is concluded that Phellines each merit family status, and have affinities with Aquifoliaceae and Icacinaceae of the Celastrales.

Reinstatement of Alseuosmia quercifolia (Atseuosmiaceae) from New Zealand

Abstract Alseuosmia quercifolia A.Cunn., previously treated as a hybrid (A. ×quercifolia) or as an entity informally known as A. sp. “Hakarimata”, is reinstated as a distinct species. This species

Relationships among "ancient araliads" and their significance for the systematics of Apiales.

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.

Materials towards the knowledge of the Icacinaceae of Asia, Malesia, and adjacent areas

Details are given of the genera formerly included in Asiatic-Malesian Icacinaceae, representing the basis of the forthcoming treatment of the family in ‘Flora Malesiana’ in which full descriptions of the Malesian genera and species will be given.

The history of Ilex (Aquifoliaceae) with special reference to Australia: Evidence from pollen

The south-east Asian region has had one of the most stable climates and is a refuge for ancient angiosperms, regardless of place of origin, and the fossil record does not support this hypothesis although it is not sufficient to pinpoint its origin.

An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IV

A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided and the use of bracketing families that could be included optionally in broader circumscriptions with other related families are expanded.

Clarification of the relationship beteen Apiaceae and Araliaceae based on matK and rbcL sequence data.

There are two well-defined "families" of Apiaceae and Araliaceae, both of which may have been derived from a lineage (or lineages) or pro-araliads that may still have extant taxa.

The asteralean affinity of the Mauritian Roussea (Rousseaceae)

The monotypic Rousseaceae is merged with Carpodetaceae into Rousseaceae s.l, characterized by many-locular ovaries and similarities in the appearance of the petals, which exhibit a disjunct distribution in Mauritius, East Australia, New Zealand and New Guinea.
