: The infrafamilial relationships of Podostemaceae were deduced from nucleotide sequences of the chloroplast matK gene. The matK phylogenetic analyses show that Podostemaceae are composed of two major clades that correspond to the subfamily Tristichoideae sensu stricto and Weddellina and the subfamily Podostemoideae. Weddellina, which has long been recognized as a member of the Tristichoideae, is sister to the Podostemoideae, supporting the classification that recognized a third subfamily… Expand
Systematics and Phylogeny of Neotropical Riverweeds (Podostemaceae: Podostemoideae)
TLDR
An unexpected clade of morphologically diverse genera, including members of Apinagia, Jenmaniella, Lophogyne, Marathrum, and Monostylis, resolved with strong support but uncertain morphological integrity, as sister to all ingroup taxa except Mourera. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationship and Morphology of Dalzellia gracilis (Podostemaceae, Subfamily Tristichoideae) with Proposal of a New Genus
TLDR
A new genus Indodalzellia is described for D. gracilis to draw attention to the remarkable morphological differences compared to the inconspicuous morphological diversity in Tristicha and Terniopsis and between the two genera. Expand
Molecular Phylogeny of Cladopus and Hydrobryum (Podostemaceae, Podostemoideae) with Implications for their Biogeography in East Asia
TLDR
The DIVA results suggest that the disjunctive distribution of Hydrobryum japonicum was formed by two dispersal events from Kyushu to Yunnan and to northern Thailand, and the clock-constrained maximum-likelihood tree suggests that the divergence events of the temperate lineages from their tropical sisters occurred coevally in the two genera.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Podostemaceae: implications for taxonomy of major groups
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of matK sequences for 657 samples showed that plants of Tristicha (Tristichoideae) and of Weddellina (Weddellinoideae), which are currently treated as monospecific, had great matK differentiation equivalent to at least interspecific variation. Expand
Systematics and Phylogeny of Neotropical Riverweeds
New World Podostemaceae (riverweeds) comprise approximately 135 species in 21 genera, most of which are of tropical distribution, shed pollen in monads, and belong to subfamily Podostemoideae. WeExpand
Combined Morphological and Molecular Phylogeny of the Clusioid Clade (Malpighiales) and the Placement of the Ancient Rosid Macrofossil Paleoclusia
TLDR
The phylogeny inferred from morphology alone was poorly supported but largely in agreement with molecular data, and the combined analyses were much better supported and largely confirm taxonomic hypotheses regarding relationships of extant taxa newly included here. Expand
How to get off the mismatch at the generic rank in African Podostemaceae?
TLDR
The Podostemaceae are highly enigmatic plants which are restricted to submerged river-rock habitats and the availability of new material from continental Africa prompted this new study, which proposes restricting Ledermanniella to the species of the former subgenus Ledermannilla, resurrecting Monandriella as monotypic genus, and accepting the genus name Inversodicraea. Expand
Developmental Morphology of the Controversial Ramulus Organ of Tristicha trifaria (Subfamily Tristichoideae, Podostemaceae): Implications for Evolution of a Unique Body Plan in Podostemaceae
TLDR
The ramulus of Tristicha is interpreted to be the determinate shoot portion of a sympodially branched shoot system, as in Terniopsis, not as a leaf or a leaf-stem fuzzy organ. Expand
A taxonomic study of Podostemaceae subfamily Podostemoideae of Laos with phylogenetic analyses of Cladopus, Paracladopus and Polypleurum
SummaryThe Podostemaceae of Laos are much less understood than those of adjacent Thailand. Comparative morphology using new materials, together with the latest molecular phylogenetic studies, haveExpand
Comparative morphology and molecular systematics of Indian Podostemaceae
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis reveals that the Indian Podostemoideae is subdivided into two subclades; one represented by Willisia and Podostemum and the other by Zeylanidium, Hydrobryopsis, Griffithella and Polypleurum, and proposes the removal of I. tirunelveliana from the genus Indotristicha. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of the enigmatic angiosperm family Podostemaceae inferred from 18S rDNA and rbcL sequence data.
TLDR
The authors' analyses indicate that Podostemaceae are not closely allied with Crassulaceae or with other members of the Saxifragales clade; their closest relatives, although still uncertain, appear to lie elsewhere in the rosids. Expand
THE PHYLOGENETIC POSITION OF RIVER-WEEDS (PODOSTEMACEAE) : INSIGHTS FROM RBCL SEQUENCE DATA
TLDR
The phylogeny of river-weeds is investigated by comparing DNA sequences of the chloroplast encoded rbc L gene for eight river-weed genera together with 84 other angiosperm and 11 non-flowering seed plant taxa and a tentative hypothesis is that the Hydrostachyaceae and Podostemaceae are sister taxa whose closest relatives are the rosid families Crassulaceae and Haloragaceae. Expand
Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of Cornaceae and close relatives inferred from matK and rbcL sequences.
TLDR
Comparisons of matK and rbcL sequences based on one of the most parsimonious rBCL-matK trees indicate that matK has a much higher A-T content and a lower transition:transversion ratio and among- lineages rates of nucleotide substitutions in r bcL are basically homogeneous throughout Cornales, but are more heterogeneous in matK.

Phylogeny of the eudicots : a nearly complete familial analysis based on rbcL gene sequences
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of 589 plastid rbcL gene sequences representing nearly all eudicot families was performed, and bootstrap re-sampling was used to assess support for clades. Expand

Abstract The taxonomy and distribution of the Podostemaceae of Kerala are described with figures and maps. Nine genera and 13 species are included. Kerala is the southwestern state of India. MostExpand
Comparative morphology of the vegetative structures of Tristicha trifaria, Indotristicha ramosissima and Dalzellia ceylanica (Podostemaceae, Tristichoideae): a review
TLDR
The discussions herein confirm the view of a general conformity of the morphological features of Indotristicha ramosissima, Tristicha trifaria and Dalzellia ceylanica with common features of angiosperms, and support the applicability of the classical root-shoot model to these plants. Expand
Timing the eastern Asian-eastern North American floristic disjunction: molecular clock corroborates paleontological estimates.
TLDR
The results suggest that the isolation of most morphologically similar disjunct species in eastern Asia and eastern North America occurred during the global climatic cooling period that took place throughout the late Tertiary and Quaternary. Expand
Structural and developmental diversity in Podostemaceae (river-weeds)
TLDR
The structural categories of typical flowering plants are transcended in the Podostemaceae due to developmental changes and saltational evolution. Expand
Embryological and floral studies in Weddellina squamulosa Tul. (Podostemaceae, Tristichoideae)
TLDR
New data favour a re-establishment of the former subfamily Weddellinoideae, as well as the development of the male and female gametophyte, the nucellar plasmodium, embryogenesis and seed structure, which is marked by characteristic deviations from the usual pattern of angiosperms. Expand
