Background Rutaceae subfamily Rutoideae (46 genera, c. 660 species) is diverse in both rainforests and sclerophyll vegetation of Australasia. Australia and New Caledonia are centres of endemism with a number of genera and species distributed disjunctly between the two regions. Our aim was to generate a high-level molecular phylogeny for the Australasian Rutoideae and identify major clades as a framework for assessing morphological and biogeographic patterns and taxonomy.

Phylogeny of Acronychia (Rutaceae) and First Insights into Its Historical Biogeography and the Evolution of Fruit Characters

The results indicate that the South-East Asian genus Maclurodendron is nested phylogenetically within Acronychia and must be synonymized to render AcronYchia monophyletic.

A chloroplast phylogeny of Zieria (Rutaceae) in Australia and New Caledonia shows widespread incongruence with species-level taxonomy

The cpDNA phylogeny provides useful insight into the evolution of Zieria but, because of its complexity, does not provide a clear basis for assessing phylogenetic relationships and monophyly of taxa.

Incongruent patterns of nuclear and chloroplast variation in Correa (Rutaceae): introgression and biogeography in south-eastern Australia

Correa (family Rutaceae) is a genus endemic to southern Australia, in which chloroplast introgression between species has previously been inferred. The current study aimed to document the extent of

Phylogenetic placement of Ivodea and biogeographic affinities of Malagasy Rutaceae

Ivodea and Vepris provide another example of closely related pairs of Rutaceous groups that have drupaceous and capsular/follicular fruits, thus further confirming that fruit types are not suited to delimit subfamilies in Rutaceae, as has often been done in the past.

Historical biogeography of Melicope (Rutaceae) and its close relatives with a special emphasis on Pacific dispersals

Wider ecological niches and adaptations to bird‐dispersal likely account for the much higher species richness in the Acronychia‐Melicope clade compared to the Euodia clade.

Phylogenetic relationships of Zieria (Rutaceae) inferred from chloroplast, nuclear, and morphological data

The Maximum-parsimony and the Bayesian analyses of the combined morphological and molecular datasets indicate a lack of support for any of these six major taxon groups of Zieria.

Molecular phylogenetic relationships reveal taxonomic and biogeographic clades in Dianella (flax lilies; Asphodelaceae, Hemerocallidoideae)

The phylogenetic results indicate the need for taxonomic revision, particularly revision of the species ‘complexes’ D. longifolia and D. caerulea in Australia, and recognition of more than one species within D. ensifolia.

Phylogeny, classification and biogeography of Halfordia (Rutaceae) in Australia and New Caledonia

Divergences among eastern Australia populations are best explained by vicariance and correlate with geographic breaks documented for other taxa (ranging in estimated ages from the mid-late Miocene to the Pleistocene).

Phylogenetic Relationships and Evolution of the Androecia in Ruteae (Rutaceae)

The ancestral state reconstruction indicates this character can serve as a synapomorphy of the Ruteae-Aurantioideae clade, and shed light on the evolution of the androecium in Rutaceae, as the obdiplostemony of this group is clearly derived from haplostemoney in the ancestral genera in Rut Families and has develop into polyandry by increasing antepetalous stamens.



Phylogeny and infrageneric classification of Correa Andrews (Rutaceae) on the basis of nuclear and chloroplast DNA

The phylogenies based on nuclear DNA should reflect species relations better than the chloroplast phylogeny in Correa, and a new subgeneric classification of the genus is proposed on the basis of the ITS-based phylogeny and morphology.

Phylogeny of Rutaceae based on twononcoding regions from cpDNA.

Primarily known only by the edible fruits of Citrus, Rutaceae comprise a large (c. 160 genera and 1900 species), morphologically diverse, cosmopolitan family. Of its extraordinary array of secondary

Phylogenetic relationships among New Caledonian Sapotaceae (Ericales): molecular evidence for generic polyphyly and repeated dispersal.

There is need for a revision of generic boundaries in Chrysophylleae, including Leptostylis, Niemeyera, Pichonia, Pouteria pro parte, and Pycnandra, including Section Oligotheca have been recognized as the separate genus Planchonella, a monophyletic group that needs to be resurrected.

The age and biogeography of Citrus and the orange subfamily (Rutaceae: Aurantioideae) in Australasia and New Caledonia.

It is concluded that the Rutaceae crown diverged in the Eocene (36.4-56.8 Ma, mean 47.6), whereas the Aurantioideae crown originated in the early Miocene (12.1-28.2 Ma), suggesting that Gondwanan vicariance does not explain the distributions of extant Aurantiaideae.

Molecular phylogeny of Phebalium (Rutaceae: Boronieae) and related genera based on the nrDNA regions ITS 1+2

Parsimony analyses of the internal transcribed spacer regions of nuclear ribosomal DNA for 38 taxa sampled from the Phebalium group confirm that, with the exception of PheBalium sensu stricto and Rhadinothamnus, six of the currently recognised genera within the group are monophyletic.

A molecular phylogeny of the orange subfamily(Rutaceae: Aurantioideae) using nine cpDNA sequences.

The breeding of new, high-quality citrus cultivars depends on dependable information about the relationships of taxa within the tribe Citreae; therefore, it is important to have a well-supported

Congruence of Molecular, Morphological, and Biochemical Profiles in Rutaceae: a Cladistic Analysis of the Subfamilies Rutoideae and Toddalioideae

The inferred phylogeny lends support to merging these two subfamilies established by Engler based on different fruit types and shows that members of Euodia sensu lato should be placed in three different genera: Tetradium, EUodia, and Melicope.

Molecular analyses suggest a need for a significant rearrangement of Rutaceae subfamilies and a minor reassessment of species relationships withinFlindersia

Analysis of sequence data for five Rutaceae subfamilies has shown that there is no molecular support for the current subfamily classifications within the Rutaceae, suggesting a reassessment of the subfamily classification is necessary.

Phylogenetic relationships of Rutaceae: a cladistic analysis of the subfamilies using evidence from RBC and ATP sequence variation.

Correlation of the molecular phylogenies with biochemical data indicates that chemotaxonomic information is more reliable than fruit type as an indicator of familial and subfamilial circumscriptions.
