The diverse and species‐rich order Ericales has found considerable interest among systematists in recent years. Molecular phylogenetic studies not only have convincingly demonstrated the monophyly of the order, comprising 23 families formerly placed in three different subclasses (Asteridae, Dilleniidae, and Rosidae), but have also resolved Ericales as sister to euasterids. Most ericalean families are well circumscribed and have been or are currently subject to intrafamilial phylogenetic studies… Expand
Revised infrafamilial classification of Symplocaceae based on phylogenetic data from DNA sequences and morphology
TLDR
Optization of the morphological characters onto one of the trees from the combined morphological and molecular analysis suggests that all nine recognized taxa correspond to clades that have at least two morphological synapomorphies, although for two of these clades support is provided by only ambiguous characters. Expand
Evolution And Diversification Of Brook Weeds (Samolus, Samolaceae, Ericales)
TLDR
The phylogeny of Samolus is reconstructed using parsimony and Bayesian analyses of DNA sequences from three plastid gene regions and the nuclear ITS ribosomal region to interpret S. latifolius as being a lineage of hybrid origin within the American clade. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of Nymphaeales using fast-evolving and noncoding chloroplast markers
TLDR
A comprehensive study of phylogenetic relationships within the Nymphaeales from a dataset containing 24 representatives of the order, including all currently recognized genera and all subgenera of the genus Nymphaea, plus 5 outgroup taxa, underscores that more diverse genera, if not clearly known to be monophyletic, should be represented by all major lineages.

Diversity and evolution of floral structure among early diverging lineages in the Ericales
This is a combination of review and original data on floral structure and diversity in the two earliest diverging lineages of the Ericales, i.e. the balsaminoids, comprising Balsaminaceae,Expand
A multi-locus plastid phylogenetic analysis of the pantropical genus Diospyros (Ebenaceae), with an emphasis on the radiation and biogeographic origins of the New Caledonian endemic species.
TLDR
Results from this study confirmed the monophyly of Diospyros with good support and provided a clearer picture of the relationships within the genus than in previous studies. Expand
Phylogenetics and biogeography of Theaceae based on sequences of plastid genes
TLDR
DNA sequences of multiple plastid genes from 27 species of Theaceae representing all genera except Laplacea are gathered, phylogenetic analyses using parsimony, likelihood, and Bayesian methods, and estimated divergence times within a Bayesian framework are conducted with fossil calibrations and molecular data. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA suggests at least 11 origins of parasitism in angiosperms and reveals genomic chimerism in parasitic plants
TLDR
The results of a phylogenetic analysis of 102 species of seed plants indicate that the parasitic lifestyle has arisen repeatedly in angiosperm evolutionary history and results in increasing parasite genomic chimerism over time. Expand
Generic delimitation and relationships in Ebenaceae sensu lato: evidence from six plastid DNA regions.
TLDR
A western Gondwanan origin of family is supported and indicates that both vicariant and long-distance dispersal events played an important role in attaining current distributions. Expand
The first complete plastome sequence of the basal asterid family Styracaceae (Ericales) reveals a large inversion
TLDR
Phylogenetic results inferred from ML and MP analyses of 66 plastid genes and 26 taxa reveal that the Styracaceae are sister to a clade including Actinidiaceae and Ericaceae and suggest that complete plastomes are likely to be very helpful in resolving the basal relationships among Ericales families, which have resisted resolution in smaller phylogenetic data sets. Expand
The role of wood anatomy in phylogeny reconstruction of Ericales
TLDR
The systematic significance of wood anatomical characters within Ericales is evaluated using separate and combined parsimony analyses including 23 wood characters and 3945 informative molecular characters, suggesting that phylogenetic information from the limited number of morphological characters is not completely swamped by an overwhelming amount of molecular data.

Phylogeny of Theophrastaceae (Ericales s. lat.)
TLDR
A total evidence parsimony analysis shows that the herbaceous genus Samolus is sister to all other Theophrastaceae, and proposes that J. paludicola and J. longifolia, together with the orange‐red‐flowered Jacquinia, be recognized as a separate genus, Bonellia. Expand
Patterns of Embryological and Biochemical Evolution in the Asterids
TLDR
The phylogenetic tree based on the recent phylogenetic analysis of four genes was used to elucidate the evolutionary patterns of the ovule and the diversification of iridoid biosynthesis in the asterids and showed high correlation of unitegmic-tenuinucellate ovules with iridoids synthesis. Expand

MOLECULAR EVOLUTION, ADAPTIVE RADIATION, AND GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSIFICATION IN THE AMPHIATLANTIC FAMILY RAPATEACEAE: EVIDENCE FROM ndhF SEQUENCES AND MORPHOLOGY
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for representatives of 14 genera, based on sequence variation in the chloroplast‐encoded ndhF gene, suggests that infrequent long‐distance dispersal combined with vicariance accounts for speciation atop tepuis in the Stegolepis alliance. Expand
Generic realignment in primuloid families of the Ericales s.l.: a phylogenetic analysis based on DNA sequences from three chloroplast genes and morphology.
TLDR
The phylogenetic interrelationships in Primulaceae, Myrsinaceae, and Theophrastaceae were investigated using DNA sequence data from the chloroplast genes atpB, ndhF, and rbcL and it is shown that Maesa is sister to all other taxa from the three families. Expand
Phylogeny of Diapensiaceae Based on Molecular Data and Morphology
TLDR
The results indicate that the first diversification in the Diapensiaceae occurred in North America with a subsequent diversification of the genera Galax and Pyxidanthera, respectively, and that the ancestor of the remaining genera had an eastern distribution. Expand
Phylogeny of Malpighiaceae: evidence from chloroplast ndhF and trnl-F nucleotide sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of chloroplast DNA nucleotide sequences were analyzed to help resolve the phylogeny of Malpighiaceae, finding genera with dorsal-winged samaras are fairly well resolved, while the resolution of taxa with lateral- Wing-fruitedSamaras is poor. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of Rhododendroideae (Ericaceae).

TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of these sequences using Actinidia chinensis as the outgroup indicate that the Rhododendroideae are paraphyletic, and trees obtained in the analyses indicate an expanded rhododendroid clade that includes four major subclades - empetroid, rhodo, ericoid, and phyllodocoid.
