In order to construct a molecular phylogeny of Indonesian Dipterocarpoideae (Dipterocarpaceae), PCR-RFLP of the chloroplast regions rbcL, petB, psbA, psaA, and trnL-F was performed with seven restriction enzymes in 129 samples including 58 species from nine genera. In the strict consensus tree with Monotes kerstingii as outgroup Indonesian Dipterocarpaceae were divided into two major clades. One clade (bootstrap value=71) consisted of Upuna, Cotylelobium, Anisoptera, Vatica, Dipterocarpus… 

DNA sequence-based Identification and molecular phylogeni within subfamily Dipterocarpoideae (Dipterocarpaceae)

The phylogenetic relationships of the members of the subfamily Dipterocarpoideae are inferred and the suitability of the two barcoding regions will be evaluated to develop a taxonomic identification key based on the phylogenetic analysis for species identification purposes.

Secondary Structures of Chloroplast trnL Intron in Dipterocarpaceae and its Implication for the Phylogenetic Reconstruction

Results indicated that inclusion of such structures yielded more resoved topologies, and that none of the stemloop structures were homoplasious.

Phylogenomics and a revised tribal classification of subfamily Dipterocarpoideae (Dipterocarpaceae)

This study presents a comprehensive phylogenomic hypothesis for Dipterocarpoideae, based on the analyses of plastome and nuclear cistron (NRC) data, and provides an in-depth review on the validity of morphological characters underlying the new tribal classification proposed here for the subfamily.

Integrating DNA Barcoding and Traditional Taxonomy for the Identification of Dipterocarps in Remnant Lowland Forests of Sumatra

The results of the molecular data were mostly in agreement with the morphological identification for the clades of Anthoshorea, Hopea, Richetia, Parashorea, and Anisoptera, nonetheless these markers were inefficient to resolve the relationships within the Rubroshorea group.

Investigation of the nature of groupings within Tengkawang and their relatedness based on phenotypic traits and molecular data found that the Bornean endemic Shorea section Pachycarpae was a monophyletic group located at the terminal cladogram.

Genetic variation at AFLPs for the Dipterocarpaceae and its relation to molecular phylogenies and taxonomic subdivisions

Results are in accordance with the topology of molecular phylogenetic trees derived from PCR–restriction fragment length polymorphism analysis of chloroplast DNA and generally support the traditional taxonomic assessments.

Comparative and phylogenetic analyses of eleven complete chloroplast genomes of Dipterocarpoideae

Dipterocarpoideae had similar cp genomic features and psbM, rbcL, psbH may function in the growth of Dipterocaroideae, and Phylogenetic analysis suggested new taxon treatment is needed for this subfamily indentification.


Genus Vatica L. is one of the largest groups in the family Dipterocarpaceae with 71 species have been botanically described, distributed from India, Sri Lanka to Myanmar, Indochina, Sumatra, Borneo

Leaf micro-morphological characteristics of selected Vatica species (Dipterocarpaceae) from Kubah National Park, Sarawak

Results show that leaf micro morphology characteristics are significantly useful to differentiate the species level and intra-specific level of Vatica species from Kubah National Park.



Molecular phylogeny of Dipterocarpaceae in Southeast Asia using RFLP of PCR-amplified chloroplast genes

Dipterocarpaceae is the dominant family of Southeast Asia's climax tropical rain forest region, and it contains the region's most important commercial timber species. A molecular phylogeny of the

Phylogeny of the tropical tree family Dipterocarpaceae based on nucleotide sequences of the chloroplast RBCL gene.

The consensus tree resulting from parsimony analyses shows that the members of Dipterocarpaceae, including Monotes and Pakaraimaea, form a monophyletic group closely related to the family Sarcolaenaceae and are allied to Malvales.

Molecular phylogeny of Sri Lankan Dipterocarpaceae in relation to other Asian Dipterocarpaceae based on chloroplast DNA sequences

Sri Lankan Dipterocarpaceae evolved independently after Sri Lanka became geographically isolated from the Indo- Malaysian region, and their relationship with other Asian members of the family is still unknown.

Phylogeny and biosystematics ofPseudomonotes (Dipterocarpaceae) based on molecular and morphological data

The phylogeny of Pseudomonotes and other putatively related taxa are reconstructed usingrbcL sequence data using data from 20 taxa belonging to 15 genera and eight families and a single most parsimonious tree is recovered.

Molecular phylogeny of Dipetrocarpaceae in Southeast Asia based on nucleotide sequences of matK, trnL intron, and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer region in chloroplast DNA.

This result suggests that the chromosome number changed from x = 11 to x = 7 after Dipterocarpus branched in the latter cluster, and other evolutionary changes of morphological characters are also discussed.

Molecular phylogeny of dipterocarp species using nucleotide sequences of two non-coding regions in chloroplast DNA

Phylogenetic analysis showed the Selangan Batu, Yellow Meranti and White Meranti of the genus Shorea were monophyletic, while the Red Meranti was divided into three natural clades and more divergent than the other genera.

Phylogeny of PgiC gene in Shorea and its closely related genera (Dipterocarpaceae), the dominant trees in Southeast Asian tropical rain forests.

Partial sequences of the PgiC gene from species of Shorea, Hopea, Neobalanocarpus, and Parashorea were determined to elucidate phylogenetic relationships among the species of these genera and generated a gene tree with better resolution than previous cpDNA trees.

Generic relationships of Parashorea chinensis Wang Hsie (Dipterocarpaceae) based on cpDNA sequences

The systematic position of Parashorea chinensis (Dipterocarpaceae) was investigated by using maximum parsimony analysis of nucleotide sequences of matK,trnL intron, and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer region of chloroplast DNA to indicate that P. chinensis belongs within Parash Korea (80% bootstrap) rather than within Shorea.

Circumscription of the Malvales and relationships to other Rosidae: evidence from rbcL sequence data.

A two-step parsimony analysis on 125 rbcL sequences to clarify the composition of Malvales, to determine the relationships of some controversial families, and to identify the placement of the MalVales within Rosidae strongly support the monophyly of the core malvalean families.

The last common ancestor of Sarcolaenaceae and Asian dipterocarp trees was ectomycorrhizal before the India–Madagascar separation, about 88 million years ago

Phylogenetic studies comparing the Dipterocarpaceae and the Sarcolaenaceae, a tree family endemic to Madagascar, have shown that the Sarcolaenaceae share a common ancestor with Asian dipterocarps.
