A molecular phylogenetic analysis based on plastid ( trnK-matK , matK, trnH-psbA, and trnL-trnF regions) and nuclear ITS DNA sequences of 68 species representing 11 genera suggests an entirely new hypothesis for the evolutionary history within the tribe. Piptochaetium, Anatherostipa, Ptilagrostis and Hesperostipa are basal lineages that diverge independently from a clade that includes a monophyletic Jarava subg. Pappostipa (rendering Jarava s.l. polyphyletic) that is sister group to Austrostipa…

Phylogenetics of Stipeae (Poaceae: Pooideae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences

The Stipeae tribe is a group of 400−600 grass species of worldwide distribution that are currently placed in 21 genera. The ‘needlegrasses’ are characterized by having single-flowered spikelets and

Systematics and evolution of the needle grasses (Poaceae: Pooideae: Stipeae) based on analysis of multiple chloroplast loci, ITS, and lemma micromorphology

The phylogenetic hypothesis supports the recognition of the following genera and groups and monophyly of Phaenospermateae including Duthieinae is demonstrated, and its inclusion within or treatment as sister to Stipeae is rejected.

An expanded phylogenetic analysis of Austrostipa (Poaceae: Stipeae) to test infrageneric relationships

A phylogeny of the Australasian grass genus Austrostipa is determined and the inferred phylogeny hints at gene duplication, chloroplast capture, or deep coalescence in the evolutionary history of Aust Frostipa.

Molecular phylogenetics and micromorphology of Australasian Stipeae (Poaceae), and the interrelation of whole-genome duplication and evolutionary radiations in this grass tribe

These genera are most abundant in Central and Eastern Asia, which makes a colonization of Australian and New Zealand from this region more likely, perhaps via long-distance dispersal, than colonization of Australia from southern South America via Antarctica as previously invoked.

Molecular Phylogenetics and Micromorphology of Australasian Stipeae (Poaceae, Subfamily Pooideae), and the Interrelation of Whole-Genome Duplication and Evolutionary Radiations in This Grass Tribe

A rather coherent picture of chromosome number variation underlines the enormous phylogenetic and evolutionary significance of this frequently ignored character.

Phylogenetics of Piptatherum s.l. (Poaceae: Stipeae): Evidence for a new genus, Piptatheropsis, and resurrection of Patis

A phylogenetic analysis of 53 species that have been associated with the Oryzopsis/Piptatherum complex using four plastid regions in combination with lemma micromorphology to infer evolutionary relationships is conducted and a new genus, Piptatheropsis, is proposed to include five North American species.

Phylogeny of Nassella (Stipeae, Pooideae, Poaceae) Based on Analyses of Chloroplast and Nuclear Ribosomal DNA and Morphology

The DNA data alone and combined with morphology showed Nassella to be paraphyletic with respect to a monophyletic Amelichloa, and none of the groups previously circumscribed as subgenera of Stipa, that are now considered to be composed of species in NassellA, were recovered as monophylete.

Duthieeae, a new tribe of grasses (Poaceae) identified among the early diverging lineages of subfamily Pooideae: molecular phylogenetics, morphological delineation, cytogenetics and biogeography

Morphological, cytogenetic and biogeographical analyses point to warm and humid conditions as the ancestral bioclimatic niche of Phaenosperma and Duthieeae, whereas adaptation to cold and drought occurred only in a part of DuthIEeae but was obviously less successful than in the widespread and much more species-rich tribe Stipeae.

Molecules and Morphology in South American Stipeae (Poaceae)

Evaluated alternative generic treatments of the South American Stipeae, all of which are based on morphological and anatomical information, provided strong support for the monophyly of only two currently recognized genera, Piptochaetium and Hesperostipa.

Phylogenetic Relationships of the Genus Piptochaetium (Poaceae, Pooideae, Stipeae): Evidence from Morphological Data

A systematic treatment of the entire genus Piptochaetium, which complements that of Cialdella and Arriaga for the South American species, is presented herein and a phylogenetic hypothesis for the genus is proposed based on morphological and anatomical characters.

A phylogenetic analysis of Poaceae, tribe Poeae sensu lato based on morphological characters and sequence data from three plastid-encoded genes: evidence for reticulation, and a new classification for the tribe

Results suggest the possibility of wide hybrid origins for some groups, especially the subtribe Airinae, with all previously recognised tribes subsumed within a broadly circumscribed Poeae sensu lato, in which accepted genera are accommodated in 21 subtribes.

Paraphyly of Tarasa (Malvaceae) and Diverse Origins of the Polyploid Species

It is suggested that the unusual morphological features of the tetraploids are the result of convergent evolution and not shared ancestry, and neither the nuclear nor the chloroplast phylogeny supports monophyly of Tarasa as currently circumscribed.

Phylogeny and biogeography of Juglans (Juglandaceae) based on matK and ITS sequence data.

These analyses consistently supported Juglans as a monophyletic group and as the sister group to the genus Pterocarya and the fossil record suggests that the butternuts had evolved by the early Oligocene in North America.

Systematics of the Tribe Stipeae (Gramineae) Using Molecular Data

Internal transcribed spacer (ITS) sequences have been determined for a wide range of stipoid grasses (Poaceae, Pooideae, Stipeae). Nardus was confirmed as the most appropriate outgroup. Anisopogon is

Paleoeriocoma (Gramineae, Stipeae) from the Miocene of Nebraska: Taxonomic and Phylogenetic Significance

It is shown that the epidermal patterns of the lemma in the fossil and modern taxa of the Stipeae reflect evolutionary trends dating from the late Miocene (Thomasson 1978b).

Phylogeny of Poaceae Inferred from matK Sequences

Results obtained using malk sequences are largely consistent with oilier phytogenies based on mole 1 data, particularly in thai r i unclear.

Chloroplast DNA phylogeny, reticulate evolution, and biogeography of Paeonia (Paeoniaceae).

A refined hypothesis of species phylogeny of section Paeonia was proposed by considering the discordance between the nuclear and cpDNA phylogenies to be results of hybrid speciation followed by inheritance of cpDNA of one parent and fixation of ITS sequences of another parent.

Ptilagrostis in North America and its relationship to other Stipeae (Gramineae)

Numerical analyses of morphological similarities among various supraspecific taxa of Stipeae support previous suggestions that the generic limits within the tribe, particularly as interpreted in North America, should be re- evaluated.

A PRELIMINARY PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE GRASS SUBFAMILY POOIDEAE (POACEAE), WITH ATTENTION TO STRUCTURAL FEATURES OF THE PLASTID AND NUCLEAR GENOMES, INCLUDING AN INTRON LOSS IN GBSSI

The results support a novel set of relationships among Ihe tribes of Pooideae, including the placement of Brachypodieae, Bromeae, Triticeae, and Poeae s.l. within a clade for which a three-nucleotide inversion in ndhF is interpreted as a synapomorphy.
