Determination of genetic relationships between evergreen azalea cultivars in China using AFLP markers
Cluster analysis revealed that cultivars in the West and Summer groups were quite distinct from other groups in the four-group classification system and that the East and Hairy groups should be redefined.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the north-temperate Labrador Teas (Ericaceae: Rhododendron Subsect. Ledum) suggests a complex genetic history
Analysis of evolutionary history and preliminary consideration of some species boundaries in the Labrador teas using DNA sequence data from five molecular markers to generate a preliminary phylogeny of R. Ledum suggests that taxa combined in recent treatments should be recognized as distinct instead of included within more broadly defined species.
Contribution of the Rhododendron ripense Makino Chloroplast Genome to the Development of Evergreen Azalea Cultivars
This paper aims to demonstrate the efforts towards in-situ applicability of nanofiltration technology in the field of agriculture and its applications in the context of climate change.


Systematics of the Ericaceae, Empetraceae, Epacridaceae and Related Taxa Based Upon rbcL Sequence Data
Parsimony analyses indicate a monophyletic, broadly defined Ericaceae that includes Empetraceae and Epacridaceae and is distinguished from Ericaceae by anthers that open by slits rather than pores.
A revision of Rhododendron VI. Subgenus Pentanthera (Sections Sciadorhodion, Rhodora and Viscidula )
A revision of the seven species of Rhododendron sections Sciadorhodion, Viscidula and Rhodora (of subgenus Pentanthera ; Ericaceae) is presented, and a cladistic analysis results in the recognition of four sections.
Cultivar Identification of Evergreen Azalea with RAPD Method
To use RAPD method for the identification of evergreen azalea cultivars, the optimum method for DNA extraction in Rhododendron spp. was investigated. Of almost all Rhododendron species native to
A revision of Rhododendron . IV Subgenus Tsutsusi
A revision of Rhododendron subgenus Tsutsusi is presented: section Tsutsusi with 66 species is equivalent to series Azalea subser. Obtusum ; and section Brachycalyx with 15 species includes some
A classification of the Ericaceae: subfamilies and tribes
The variation shown by 60 characters (morphological, anatomical, embryological, chemical and cytological) is tabulated for the whole of the Ericaceae. The reliability of the characters and the
The systematic implications of the complexity of leaf flavonoids in the bromeliaceae
The analyses indicate that Saxifraga is polyphyletic, comprising two welldifferentiated clades, and suggests that the floral features used to define Sax ifraga may simply be symplesiomorphic in these well-separated SaxIfraga lineages.
Phylogenetic analyses of Polemoniaceae using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene matK
The family as a whole was monophyletic with no support for the segregate family Cobaeaceae, and several well supported groups allowed us to test hypotheses of relationship within Polemoniaceae.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Empetraceae, Epacridaceae, Ericaceae, Monotropaceae, and Pyrolaceae: Evidence from Nuclear Ribosomal 18s Sequence Data

Results of these analyses indicate strong support for the recognition of a monophyletic Ericaceae that includes Empetraceae, Epacridaceae, Pyrolaceae, and Monotropaceae.
