Abstract Phylogenetic interrelationships among all 18 families of Poales were assessed by cladistic analysis of chloroplast DNA rbcL and atpB sequences from 65 species. There are two well‐supported main clades; the graminoid clade with Poaceae (grasses), Anarthriaceae, Centrolepidaceae, Ecdeiocoleaceae, Flagellariaceae, Joinvilleaceae, and Restionaceae; and the cyperoid clade with Cyperaceae, Juncaceae, and Thurniaceae. A sister group relationship between Poaceae and Ecdeiocoleaceae is… 
Molecular phylogenetics of the genus Costularia (Schoeneae, Cyperaceae) reveals multiple distinct evolutionary lineages.
We investigated the monophyly of Costularia (25 species), a genus of tribe Schoeneae (Cyperaceae) that illustrates a remarkable distribution pattern from southeastern Africa, over Madagascar, the
Multi-gene region phylogenetic analyses suggest reticulate evolution and a clade of Australian origin among paleotropical woody bamboos (Poaceae: Bambusoideae: Bambuseae)
TLDR
The distinction of the climbing-scrambling bamboo lineages from the core Bambusinae and Racemobambosinae suggests directions for investigating the possible existence of further subtribes with increased taxon and geographical sampling.
Divergence Time Estimation of Aloes and Allies (Xanthorrhoeaceae) Based on Three Marker Genes
TLDR
Age estimates for alooids in Xanthorrhoeaceae provide a starting point for future studies on the historical biogeography of this family of succulent plants which are important for ethnomedicine, and as ornamental and horticultural plants.
Plastome phylogenomics of Poaceae: alternate topologies depend on alignment gaps
TLDR
Knowledge of the deep PACMAD topology explicitly impacts the understanding of the radiation ofPACMAD grasses into open habitats, and the fact that the aristidoid sister hypothesis was retrieved largely when gapped positions were included suggests that this result might be artefactual.
Worldwide long‐distance dispersal favored by epizoochorous traits in the biogeographic history of Omphalodeae (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
The aim is to reconstruct the biogeographical history of the Omphalodeae and to investigate the role of diaspore traits favoring LDD and current geographic distributions, which result is that epizoochorous traits have been the ancestral state of LDD syndromes in most clades.
A 313 plastome phylogenomic analysis of Pooideae: Exploring relationships among the largest subfamily of grasses.
TLDR
This study analyzed 313 plastid genomes of Poaceae and produced a robust phylogenomic reconstruction for the subfamily Pooideae, which included all but two supergeneric taxa (Calothecinae and Duthieeae).
Eocene “Chusquea” fossil from Patagonia is a conifer, not a bamboo

TLDR
Chusquea joins a growing list of living New World genera that are no longer included in Paleogene Patagonian floras, whose extant relatives are primarily concentrated in Australasia and Malesia via the ancient Gondwanan route through Antarctica.
Molecular Dating of the Emergence of Anaerobic Rumen Fungi and the Impact of Laterally Acquired Genes
TLDR
The concordance of independent estimations suggests that AGF have been important in shaping the success of mammalian herbivory transition by improving the efficiency of energy acquisition from recalcitrant plant materials.
Floral organogenesis and vasculature in Mayacaceae, an enigmatic family of Poales
TLDR
The reduction (loss) of the inner stamen whorl and gynoecium development from an annular primordium link Mayacaceae to the cyperids (Poales) and a high similarity in respect to floral vasculature was observed between Mayac Families and Commelinaceae (Commelinales).

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.
Phylogeny and subfamilial classification of the grasses (Poaceae)
TLDR
A large collaborative effort has yiel(led a comprehensive study of the phylogeny and a new suhfanilial classification of the grass family (Poaceae/Graminieae) and 1 new subfamily (Danthonioideae) is proposed.
MOLECULAR EVOLUTION, ADAPTIVE RADIATION, AND GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSIFICATION IN THE AMPHIATLANTIC FAMILY RAPATEACEAE: EVIDENCE FROM ndhF SEQUENCES AND MORPHOLOGY
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for representatives of 14 genera, based on sequence variation in the chloroplast‐encoded ndhF gene, suggests that infrequent long‐distance dispersal combined with vicariance accounts for speciation atop tepuis in the Stegolepis alliance.
Chloroplast DNA inversions and the origin of the grass family (Poaceae).
TLDR
These inversions provide a nested set of phylogenetic characters, indicating a hierarchy of relationships in the grasses and allies, with Joinvilleaceae identified as the likely sister group to the Poaceae.
Polyphyly and convergent morphological evolution in Commelinales and Commelinidae: evidence from rbcL sequence data.
TLDR
The numbers of species in families of the revised Commelinidae are related partly to the extent of adaptive radiation in those families, but seem more strongly related to nonadaptive features promoting speciation, such as restricted seed dispersal, polyploidy, aneuploidsy, and apomixis.

Angiosperm divergence times are estimated using non–parametric rate smoothing and a three–gene dataset covering ca.
Age and biogeography of major clades in Liliales.
TLDR
A robust phylogeny of 40 genera and all seven families of the Liliales based on rbcL sequences was dated, supporting the Campynemataceae as a monophyletic group and aspects of historical biogeography were investigated by dispersal-vicariance analysis.
Patterns of Gondwana plant colonisation anddiversification

TLDR
Plastid DNA rbcL sequences and eight reference fossils indicate that approximately 14 of the extant monocot lineages may have diverged from each other during the Early Cretaceous >100 million years B.P.
The Evolutionary History of the Poales/Restionales: A Hypothesis
TLDR
In the light of the cladogram of the families, and of the generic groups in the Restionaceae, as well as the biology of the extant taxa and the fossil pollen, an evolutionary scenario of the order is presented.
