A species-level phylogenetic study of the Verbena complex (Verbenaceae) indicates two independent intergeneric chloroplast transfers.
The results confirm the inadequacy of non-coding cpDNA in resolving relationships among closely related species due to lack of variation, and suggest that when both cpDNA and nuclear DNA are employed in low-level phylogenetic studies, cpDNA might be very useful to infer organelle evolutionary history and more comprehensively understand the evolutionary history of organisms.

AWTY (are we there yet?): a system for graphical exploration of MCMC convergence in Bayesian phylogenetics
A simple tool is presented that uses the output from MCMC simulations and visualizes a number of properties of primary interest in a Bayesian phylogenetic analysis, such as convergence rates of posterior split probabilities and branch lengths. Expand
Evolution of the madro-tertiary geoflora
Summary1. The Madro-Tertiary Geoflora comprises semiarid live oak-conifer woodland, chaparral, arid subtropic scrub, plains (desert) grassland, and subdesert to desert vegetation.2. The taxonomic andExpand
Genetic divergence of Cirsium scariosum in eastern and western Canada
Molecular analysis of Mingan and western individuals of C. scariosum showed that the Quebec individuals harbour the highest percentage of unique alleles and the lowest percentage of polymorphic loci, suggesting either that hybridization among western species has had a homogenizing effect or that Mingan C.scariosum originated from C. hookerianum.

Maximum likelihood inference of geographic range evolution by dispersal, local extinction, and cladogenesis.
The DEC model is sufficiently similar to character models that it might serve as a gateway through which many existing comparative methods for characters could be imported into the realm of historical biogeography; moreover, it might inspire the conceptual expansion of character models toward inclusion of evolutionary change as directly coincident with cladogenesis events.

Molecular phylogeny of the North American eurybioid asters (Asteraceae, Astereae) based on the nuclear ribosomal internal and external transcribed spacersThis paper is one of a selection of papers published in the Special Issue on Systematics Research.
The eurybioid asters Oreostemma, Herrickia, Eurybia, and Triniteurybia form a complex that is part of the North American clade of tribe Astereae. They comprise 31 species of perennial herbs that ar...
Phylogenetic relationships and floral evolution in the papilionoid legume clade Amorpheae
The phylogeny implies that simplification of the complex papilionoid flower has occurred several times in the history of the Amorpheae, and confirms some relationships inferred using trnK and ITS, but also provides evidence for new arrangements. Expand
Phylogenetics of New World Astragalus: Screening of novel nuclear loci for the reconstruction of phylogenies at low taxonomic levels
Four different patterns of phylogenetic diversification occur in the loci sampled from these genomes of Neo-Astragalus species, and one locus has apparently undergone a cryptic duplication, making it very difficult to diagnose. Expand
