BACKGROUND AND AIMS Boragineae is one of the main tribes of Boraginaceae, but delimitation and intergeneric classification of this group are unclear and have not yet been studied using DNA sequences. In particular, phylogenetic relationships in Anchusa s.l. still need to be elucidated in order to assess its taxonomic boundaries with respect to the controversial segregate genera Hormuzakia, Gastrocotyle, Phyllocara and Cynoglottis. METHODS Phylogenetic relationships among 51 taxa of tribe… Expand

Tribe Eritrichieae (Boraginaceae s.str.) in West Asia: a molecular phylogenetic perspective
A selection of Boraginaceae genera was used to obtain a framework for the phylogenetic position of some tribes belong to subfamily Boraginoideae and genera within tribe Eritrichieae (Heterocaryum,Expand
A Broad Phylogenetic Analysis of Boraginaceae: Implications for the Relationships of Mertensia
TLDR
Strong support is recovered for the monophyly of Mertensia and the placement of the monotypic genus Asperugo as its sister in phylogeny reconstructions of Boraginaceae. Expand
Molecular Phylogenetics, Molecular Evolution, and Patterns of Clade Support in Lithospermum (Boraginaceae) and Related Taxa
TLDR
Using 10 cpDNA regions and thorough taxon sampling, a phylogeny is reconstructed for Lithospermum and related members of both Lithospermeae, the tribe to which it is assigned, and Boraginaceae, and the combination of concatenated regions is important. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the monotypic genera Halacsya and Paramoltkia and the origins of serpentine adaptation in circum-mediterranean Lithospermeae (Boraginaceae): insights from ITS and matK DNA sequences
TLDR
Mapping the edaphic preferences of Lithospermeae onto molecular cladograms showed that serpentinophytism as an obligate condition originated separately in the clade of monotypic genera and in that of Onosma-Echium. Expand
Fossil and Extant Western Hemisphere Boragineae, and the Polyphyly of “Trigonotideae” Riedl (Boraginaceae: Boraginoideae)
TLDR
Molecular data show that “Trigonotideae” are polyphyletic, and none of its members is at all closely related to Trigonotis itself, and several fossil taxa from the Cenozoic of North America can be confidently placed into Boragineae. Expand
Karyotype variation, evolution and phylogeny in Borago (Boraginaceae), with emphasis on subgenus Buglossites in the Corso-Sardinian system.
TLDR
Molecular data support the monophyly of Borago, while relationships in subgenus Borago remain unclear, and high ITS1 variation in the tetra- and hypotetraploid races of B. pygmaea suggests a multiple origin. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and morphology support two new genera ( Memoremea and Nihon ) of Boraginaceae s.s.
TLDR
Two new genera are described to accommodate Omphalodes scorpioides from Europe and the Japanese species, and a taxonomic treatment is provided that proposes the lowest number of nomenclature changes, although six new combinations are required. Expand
Phylogeny of Symphytum L. (Boraginaceae) with special emphasis on Turkish species
TLDR
To reinvestigate the sectional delimitation, a phylogenetic analysis was conducted using ITS total and trnL-F and results indicate monophyly, a single origin of Symphytum including Procopiania. Expand
Phylogeny of Symphytum L . ( Boraginaceae ) with special emphasis on Turkish species
The genus Symphytum L. (Boraginaceae tribe Boraginae) comprises perennial mesophytic species. The distribution area of the genus is mainly Euro-Siberian and Mediterranean regions. The whole genusExpand
Molecular phylogeny, morphology and taxonomic re‐circumscription of the generic complex Nonea/Elizaldia/Pulmonaria/Paraskevia (Boraginaceae‐Boragineae)
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of the generic complex Nonea/Elizaldia/Paraskevia/ Pulmonaria (Boraginaceae-Boragineae) using trn L UAA and ITS1 sequences from non-coding plastid and nuclear DNA suggests a rede-finition of Nonea s.l. based on monophyletic groups. Expand

Systematics of Nonea (Boraginaceae-Boragineae): new insights from phenetic and cladistic analyses
TLDR
Principal Component Analysis shows that the enigmatic Greek species, Paraskevia cesatiana (= Nonea ces atiana), is morphologically intermediate between Nonea and Pulmonaria, but closer to the latter due to fruit characters. Expand
Tribes of Boraginoideae (Boraginaceae) and placement of Antiphytum, Echiochilon, Ogastemma and Sericostoma: A phylogenetic analysis based on atpB plastid DNA sequence data
TLDR
The genera Antiphytum, Echiochilon, Ogastemma and Sericostoma, which have been difficult to place within the tribes of the subfamily Boraginoideae (Boraginaceae), are analysed using plastid atpB sequence data and a framework for the phylogenetic position is obtained. Expand

Secondary Structure of the ITS1 Transcript and its Application in a Reconstruction of the Phylogeny of Boraginales
TLDR
A general secondary structure of ITS1 for Boraginales, with four major helices, is proposed here and it is demonstrated that in each subtaxon, derivations from this structure are found. Expand
A reappraisal of the generic status of Gastrocotyle, Hormuzakia and Phyllocara (Boraginaceae) in the light of micromorphological and karyological evidence
TLDR
Along with distinctive traits in inflorescence structure, fruit shape and pollen morphology, karyological and micromorphological characters determine sharp phenetic discontinuities from Anchusa, from which these plants should be kept generically separated. Expand
Removal of Anchusa macedonica from Anchusa (Boraginaceae): evidence from phenetics and karyotypic analysis
TLDR
The occurrence in A. macedonica of a combination of morphological and karyological traits, which are otherwise separately found in unrelated species of Anchusa s.l., highlights the need for a phylogenetic analysis at the tribal level to understand better the systematic relationships and correct taxonomic placement of this species within the tribe.

Evidence from nuclear and choroplast DNA for the placement of Anchusa macedonica in the genus Gastrocotyle (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
Analysis of the trnL(UAA) intron of chloroplast DNA and of the Internal Transcribed Spacer 1 region of nuclear ribosomial DNA of Anchusa macedonica, Gastrocotyle hispida, and allied members of Anchusella, Lycopsis, Cynoglottis strongly supports the placement of A.macedonica in the genus GastrocOTyle, as already suggested by previous micro- morphological studies. Expand
The origins and evolution of the genus Myosotis L. (Boraginaceae).
TLDR
The genetic relationships reported here suggest that the current infrageneric taxonomy of Myosotis does not fully reflect the evolution of the genus and that the important role played by late Tertiary and Quaternary climate change in explaining current floristic diversity is highlighted. Expand
Pollen morphology in theBoragineae (Boraginaceae) in relation to the taxonomy of the tribe
TLDR
Palynological data do not support a broad concept of the genus Anchusa, and point to the autonomy of the ‘satellite’ generaHormuzakia, Gastrocotyle, Phyllocara, Pentaglottis andCynoglottis. Expand
