Pollen analysis and parsimony-based phylogenetic analyses of the genera Cistus and Halimium, two Mediterranean shrubs typical of Mediterranean vegetation, were undertaken, on the basis of cpDNA sequence data from the trnL-trnF, and trnS-trnG regions, to evaluate limits between the genera. [...] Key Result Neither of the two genera examined formed a monophyletic group. Several monophyletic clades were recognized for the ingroup.Expand

Intraspecific Genetic Diversity of Cistus creticus L. and Evolutionary Relationships to Cistus albidus L. (Cistaceae): Meeting of the Generations?
DNA sequence data from one nuclear region (ITS) and two chloroplast regions were used to test the intraspecific genetic diversity of C. creticus and its evolutionary relationships to the closely related C. albidus. Expand
Singpuria, a new genus of Eudicot flower from the latest Cretaceous Deccan Intertrappean Beds of India
A new bisexual flower, Singpuria kapgatei, gen. et sp. nov., is described from chert of latest Cretaceous age from the Deccan Intertrappean Beds at Singpur, Madhya Pradesh, in central India. TheExpand
Pollen morphology of Helianthemum caput-felis Boiss. (Cistaceae)
The pollen data demonstrate that the populations of North Africa, as well as one population of the Spanish island of Majorca, show similar micro-reticulate exine ornamentation, and suggest an evolutive differentiation by the geographical isolation of the species within the Mediterranean Basin.

Phylogeny of the Rosidae: A dense taxon sampling analysis
This study combines sequences from 9300 species, representing 2775 genera, 138 families, and 17 orders into a supermatrix, and shows the value of a botanically informed bioinformatics approach and dense taxonomic sampling for resolving rosid relationships. Expand
Halimium as an ectomycorrhizal symbiont: new records and an appreciation of known fungal diversity
A large proportion of Halimium fungal species are shared with other host plants in various ecological settings, suggesting a critical role of common mycorrhizal networks in the function played by this shrub in various Mediterranean ecosystems. Expand
Scleroderma meridionale ectomycorrhizae on Halimium halimifolium: expanding the Mediterranean symbiotic repertoire
The morpho-anatomical features of the ectomycorrhizae formed by Scleroderma meridionale on Halimium halimifolium, a cistaceous plant belonging to a small group of woody shrubs occurring in open vegetation types in the Mediterranean region, are described. Expand
Differentiation between Cistus L. (Sub-) Species (Cistaceae) Using NMR Metabolic Fingerprinting.
The present work was able to identify discriminators and specific markers for the investigated Cistus (sub-) species by examining the NMR profiles of these extracts, and this work can be considered a robust model and might be used for future differentiation between Cistu ( sub-) species. Expand
Island ontogenies, syngameons, and the origins and evolution of genetic diversity in the Canarian endemic flora
A hypothetical framework that updates the Surfing Syngameon Hypothesis to explain the origins of the high genetic diversity of this flora is proposed in connection with the General Dynamic Model of Island Ontogeny and the available knowledge on the geology of the islands. Expand
Polyphenol Diversity and Antioxidant Activity of European Cistus creticus L. (Cistaceae) Compared to Six Further, Partly Sympatric Cistus Species
This investigation focused on the qualitative and quantitative composition of polyphenolic compounds of Mediterranean northern shore Cistus creticus and six further, partly sympatric Cistus speciesExpand
Two new Terfezia species from Southern Europe
Two new species of Terfezia are documented from Spain and Greece, based on morphology and ITS-rDNA sequence data, which are discussed in relation to similar species in this genus and their host plants. Expand


Systematics, character evolution, and biogeography of Cistus L. (Cistaceae) based on ITS, trnL-trnF, and matK sequences.
This paper presents the first phylogenetic hypotheses for the 20 species of Cistus based on plastid (trnL-trnF, matK) and nuclear (ITS) DNA sequence data. Phylogenetic relationships reveal that: (1)Expand
Historical biogeography and character evolution of Cistaceae (Malvales) based on analysis of plastid rbcL and trnL-trnF sequences
Reconstructing the evolution of ovule position supports anatropous ovules as the ancestral condition within the Cistaceae, which is currently found only in Fumana. Expand
Adaptive Radiation in Mediterranean Cistus (Cistaceae)
It is argued that the diverse ecological conditions of Mediterranean habitats played a key role in directing the evolution of alternative leaf strategies in this plant group, and key innovation of morphological characteristics is supported by the dated phylogeny. Expand
Intergeneric Relationships within the Caricaceae‐Moringaceae Clade (Brassicales) and Potential Morphological Synapomorphies of the Clade and Its Families

  • 2002
Parsimony analysis of DNA sequence variation in the chloroplast gene rbcL supports the monophyly of both families and attempts to identify morphological synapomorphies of the two‐family clade and of each family. Expand
Abstract Phylogenetic relationships between derived subfamilies of Apocynaceae s.l. as well as within the subfamily Secamonoideae have been inferred using maximum parsimony and Bayesian analyses.Expand
The phylogeny and a new classification of the gingers (Zingiberaceae): evidence from molecular data.
New phylogenetic analyses based on DNA sequences of the nuclear internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and plastid matK regions suggest that at least some of these morphological traits are homoplasious and three of the tribes are paraphyletic. Expand
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. Expand
Critical reexamination of palynological characters used to delimit Asclepiadaceae in comparison to the molecular phylogeny obtained from plastid matK sequences.
The family Asclepiadaceae (Dicotyledones) was created by Brown in 1810 by splitting in two the family Apocynaceae of Jussieu established in 1789. The morphological characters used to make thisExpand
Pollen Morphology of the Family Cistaceae in Relation to its Taxonomy
The palynological data presented here agrees well with the systems suggested by Janchen (1925) and Takhtajan (1987) in which the family Cistaceae is divided into three tribes, namely Cisteae, Hudsonieae and Lechidieae. Expand
Allozyme diversity in three endemic species of Cistus (Cistaceae) from the Canary Islands: intraspecific and interspecific comparisons and implications for genetic conservation.
Interpretation of neighbor-joining trees in the light of geological data substantiates the hypothesis that C. symphytifolius (or a very close relative) might be the ancestor of the other stands of Cistus in the islands and gives conservation priority on ecological grounds despite their genetic depauperation.
