Molecular phylogeny and systematics of the tribe Chorisporeae (Brassicaceae)

Support is obtained for uniting Pseudoclausia, Clausia podlechii, and Achoriphragma with Parrya and transferring P. beketovii and P. saposhnikovii to Leiospora (Euclidieae), and for splitting Chorispora into two geographically defined groups.

Molecular Phylogenetics and Taxonomy of the Genus Boechera and Related Genera (Brassicaceae: Boechereae)

P phylogenetic analyses of Boechereae indicate that Boechera, as currently circumscribed, is polyphyletic, comprising three main clades.

One or three species in Megadenia (Brassicaceae): insight from molecular studies

A dating analysis shows that the genus Megadenia is of Miocene origin and diversification within the genus, which has led to the three extant lineages, most likely occurred during the Early–Middle Pleistocene, in agreement with the vicariance pattern.

Deep phylogeographic splits but no taxonomic structure in the disjointly distributed Draba pacheri (Brassicaceae), a subendemic of the Eastern Alps

The deep and geographically strongly structured splits of D. pacheri likely are the result of isolation in several Pleistocene refugia and warrant that conservation efforts should involve populations from each of the main geographic subgroups.

Secondary Structure Analyses of the Nuclear rRNA Internal Transcribed Spacers and Assessment of Its Phylogenetic Utility across the Brassicaceae (Mustards)

These analyses of ITS1 and ITS2 for 50 species suggest that both sequences are instead under selective constraints to preserve proper secondary structure, likely to maintain complete self-splicing functions, and thus are not neutrally-evolving phylogenetic markers.



Molecular phylogenetics ofCochlearia (Brassicaceae) and allied genera based on nuclear ribosomal ITS DNA sequence analysis contradict traditional concepts of their evolutionary relationship

The molecular data indicate that subtribal arrangements in tribeLepidieae are artificial and do not reflect evolutionary history, and the genusCochlearia is represented by sections Cochlearia andGlaucocochlearIA andThe genusIonopsidium should be integrated intoCochLearia.

Molecular Phylogenetics and Taxonomy of the Genus Thysanocarpus (Brassicaceae)

The relationships and taxonomy of the genus Thysanocarpus is reassessed based on molecular phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ribosomal and chloroplast sequences and a critical re-examination of morphology and nomenclatural types, but no illuminating phylogenetic structure is found within the tribe Thelypodieae.

Molecular Data Indicate Complex Intra- and Intercontinental Differentiation of American Draba (Brassicaceae)

The present phylogenetic study is based on analyses of the ITS (internal transcribed spacer) regions of the nuclear ribosomal DNA and the chloroplast trnL-intron and spacer sequences from 72 American Draba taxa and 6 European Draba species and demonstrates that the genus Erophila has to be integrated into Draba.

A molecular-morphological approach solves taxonomic controversy in arctic Draba (Brassicaceae)

A combined molecular and morphological approach was used to solve a long-term controversy in the taxo- nomically complex genus Draba L. (Brassicaceae) : the delimitation of Draba lactea Adams versus Draba fladnizensis Wulfen, which gave conclusive evidence on the origin of this widespread arctic hexaploid.

A Phylogenetic Analysis of Western North American Draba (Brassicaceae) Based on Nuclear Ribosomal DNA Sequences from the ITS Region

A molecular phylogeny using nucleotide sequences from both internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA and the 5.8S rRNA gene reveals the taxonomic limitations of flower color, chromosome base number, and growth habit for predicting relationships within the genus Draba.

Toward a global phylogeny of the Brassicaceae.

Results from parsimony ratchet and Bayesian analyses recovered little support for the backbone of the phylogeny, suggesting that many lineages of Brassicaceae have undergone rapid radiations that may ultimately be difficult to resolve with any single locus.

Molecular evidence for allopolyploid speciation and a single origin of the narrow endemic Draba ladina (Brassicaceae).

Results suggest that D. ladina is a relatively young, presumably postglacial, taxon with a single allopolyploid origin, supporting the hypothesis of an allotetraploids origin.

Phylogeny and systematics of Achillea (Asteraceae-Anthemideae) inferred from nrITS and plastid trnL-F DNA sequences

Here and in other groups of Achillea, various instances of conflicting evidence from nrITS, plastid trnL-F, and morphology point to hybridization and lineage sorting.

Pattern of Variation and Systematics of Nymphaea odorata: II. Sequence Information from ITS and trnL-trnF

Abstract Sequence data from the nuclear internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and the plastid trnL-trnF regions were used to assess relationships among populations of N. odorata across its North American
