Abstract Total DNA was extracted from 41 species (20 genera) of the subfamily Nepetoideae (family Labiatae). Using rbcL-specific primers, the rbcL gene was amplified by polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and sequenced directly. RbcL sequences were evaluated with character state (maximum parsimony; PAUP) and distance methods (neighbour-joining; MEGA). In agree ment with classical systematics all taxa studied cluster within the Nepetoideae and are clearly distinguished from members of the subfamily…

Phylogenetic Relationships between some Members of the Subfamily Lamioideae (Family Labiatae) Inferred from Nucleotide Sequences of the rbcL Gene
The phylogenetic relationships are discussed with regard to the systematic classification of the subfamilies Lamioideae and Nepetoideae (sensu Erdtman) and in agreement with classical systematics all taxa studied cluster outside the Nepetoidae.
Using Molecular Data to Test a Biogeographic Connection of the Macaronesian Genus Bystropogon (Lamiaceae) to the New World: A Case of Conflicting Phylogenies
The strict consensus tree of this analysis shows with moderate bootstrap support that Bystropogon is sister to the Old World taxa Acinos, Ziziphora, and Clinopodium vulgare, and the cpDNA phylogeny strongly supports a relationship of Bystropyogon with a clade of New World mint taxa.
Phylogeny of New World Salvia subgenus Calosphace (Lamiaceae) based on cpDNA (psbA-trnH) and nrDNA (ITS) sequence data
Mexico is supported as the geographic origin of Calosphace, and no more than seven dispersal events to South America are required to account for current disjunct distributions.
Phylogenetic relationships in Iranian Scutellaria (Lamiaceae) based on nuclear ribosomal ITS and chloroplast trnL-F DNA data
It can be suggested that the sectional classification of both subgenera Apeltanthus and Scutellaria should be revised.
Salvia (Lamiaceae) is not monophyletic: implications for the systematics, radiation, and ecological specializations of Salvia and tribe Mentheae.
In a preliminary investigation of infrageneric relationships within Salvia, the monophyly of the genus and its relationship to other members of the tribe Mentheae were investigated using the chloroplast DNA regions rbcL and trnL-F.
Heterogeneity of three molecular data partition phylogenies of mints related to M. x piperita (Mentha; Lamiaceae).
Light is shed on differential of introgression of different genome regions in mint hybrids as well as the potential of three data partitions to reconstruct the phylogeny of mints related to M. x piperita.
Molecular phylogeny of cycads inferred from rbcL sequences
The rbcL sequences indicate that the colonisation of Madagascar by Cycasthouarsii occurred only recently, and the divergence of the Cycadaceae and Zamiaceae apparently occurred in the Mesozoic, as had previously been assumed.
Genome size and plastid trnK-matK markers give new insights into the evolutionary history of the genus Lavandula L.
The cpDNA tree shows the phylogenetic relationships between subgenus, sections and also elucidates for the first time the relationships between the endemic species of Macaronesia, Morocco and Arabia.
Complex evolutionary relationships in Origanum section Majorana (Lamiaceae)
Both sequence and microsatellite analyses provided evidence for recent hybridization between O.‬syriacum and a third, unknown, Origanum species, and phylogenetic relationships and species boundaries amongst its four taxa are unclear.


Phylogenetics of seed plants : An analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid gene rbcL
Two exploratory parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from 475 and 499 species of seed plants, respectively, representing all major taxonomic groups indicate that rbcL sequence variation contains historical evidence appropriate for phylogenetic analysis at this taxonomic level of sampling.
Subfamilial Classification of Labiatae
Erdtman's subfamilies appear to be the primary phenetic groupings of the Labiatae, but only subfam.
Carnivorous plants: phylogeny and structural evolution.
Phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequence data from the plastic rbcL gene indicates that both carnivory and stereotyped trap forms have arisen independently in different lineages of angiosperms, and demonstrates that flypaper traps share close common ancestry with all other trap forms.
Signal, noise, and reliability in molecular phylogenetic analyses.
This work analyzed 8,000 random data matrices consisting of 10-500 binary or four-state characters and 5-25 taxa to study several options for detecting signal in systematic data bases, finding the skewness of tree-length distributions is closely related to the success of parsimony in finding the true phylogeny.
The neighbor-joining method: a new method for reconstructing phylogenetic trees.
The neighbor-joining method and Sattath and Tversky's method are shown to be generally better than the other methods for reconstructing phylogenetic trees from evolutionary distance data.
