DNA sequences for the plastid locus that encodes the large subunit of ribulose 1,5-bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (rbcL) were determined for 18 species of monocotyledons in 15 families. These data were analyzed together with sequences for 60 other monocot species in a total of 52 families by the maximum likelihood method producing one, presumably optimal, topology. An additional 26 species were added (104 total monocot species) and analyzed by the parsimony method with an outgroup of 18… 
Phylogenetic Relationships of Amaryllidaceae Based on matK Sequence Data
The result supports the hypothesis that the Amaryllidaceae evolved in Africa and subsequently spread to other continents, further suggesting that South America is the center of secondary diversification.
Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms.
Examination of subfamilial phylogeny in Bromeliaceae using comparative sequencing of the plastid locus ndhF.
Parsimony analysis of 31 sequences of the chloroplast locus ndhF was used to address questions of subfamilial phylogeny in Bromeliaceae, and data suggest that Brocchinia (Pitcairnioideae) is the sister group to the remainder of Bromeli Families.
A Set of 100 Chloroplast DNA Primer Pairs to Study Population Genetics and Phylogeny in Monocotyledons
Through the analysis of the genetic structure of a wild-cultivated species complex in Dioscorea, it is demonstrated that this new set of primers optimized for amplification in Monocotyledons is of great interest for population genetics and it is anticipated that it will also be useful for phylogeny and bar-coding studies.
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.
Assembling the Tree of the Monocotyledons: Plastome Sequence Phylogeny and Evolution of Poales1
The results of an initial project by the Monocot AToL (Angiosperm Tree of Life) team on phylogeny and evolution in Poales are presented, using sequence data for 81 plastid genes from 83 species of angiosperms and recovered highly concordant relationships using maximum likelihood (ML) and maximum parsimony (MP).
Molecular systematics of Iridaceae: evidence from four plastid DNA regions.
In the combined tree, all subfamilies were resolved as monophyletic, except Nivenioidae that formed a grade in which Ixioideae were embedded, and this subfamily also lacks clear morphological synapomorphies and is highly heterogeneous, so it is difficult to develop a strong case on nonmolecular grounds for their monophyly.
A Phylogeny of the Monocots, as Inferred from rbcL and atpA Sequence Variation, and a Comparison of Methods for Calculating Jackknife and Bootstrap Values
A phylogenetic analysis of the monocots was conducted on the basis of nucleotide sequence variation in two genes (atpA, encoded in the mitochondrial genome, and rbcL), finding the resolution of a clade comprising four magnoliid lineages (Canellales, Piperales, Magnoliales, and Laurales) as sister of themonocots.
The phylogenetic relationships of Asparagales in Korea based on five plastid DNA regions
A phylogenetic analysis of 13 families of Asparagales sensu APG III, including 59 Korean taxa representing 10 families based on five plastid regions sequences, clearly suggests that the subfamily Nolinoideae of AsParagaceae s.l. exhibits different character states than the other subfamilies.
Phylogenetic analysis ofIridaceae with parsimony and distance methods using the plastid generps4
A molecular phylogeny of the familyIridaceae based on the plastid generps4 was obtained using both parsimony and distance methods, and shows that the family is monophyletic, and that Isophysis is likely to be the earliest emerging genus.
