Abstract The Commelinaceae are a pantropical family of monocotyledonous herbs. Previous phylogenies in Commelinaceae have emphasized sampling among genera. We extended this previous work by sampling multiple species within some of the largest genera of Commelinaceae (especially Commelina and Tradescantia, and also including Callisia, Cyanotis, Gibasis, and Murdannia), and by sequencing noncoding regions both of the nuclear ribosomal DNA region, 5S NTS, and the chloroplast region, trnL-trnF… Expand
Insights into phylogenetic relationships and genome evolution of subfamily Commelinoideae (Commelinaceae Mirb.) inferred from complete chloroplast genomes
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis using 77 chloroplast protein-coding genes with maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian inference suggests that Palisota is most closely related to tribe Commelineae, supported by high support values, which differs significantly from the current classification of Commelinaceae. Expand
Phylogenetics and infrafamilial classification of Commelinaceae (Commelinales)
TLDR
A new classification is proposed for Commelinaceae, consisting of two subfamilies, six tribes, seven subtribes and 37 genera, with Palisotinae and Streptoliriinae raised to tribal rank and Porandra, Belosynapsis, Anthericopsis are synonymized under Amischotolype, Cyanotis and Murdannia, respectively.

Systematics and Evolution of Inflorescence Structure in the Tradescantia Alliance (Commelinaceae)
TLDR
The presence of self compatible and incompatible species allowed us to test the hypothesis that self compatible species will have condensed inflorescences, as less allocation to floral display is necessary, and no correlation was found. Expand
Polen de Commelinaceae y Pontederiaceae (Commelinales) de humedales rioplatenses (Argentina)
TLDR
Ornamentation varies in different taxonomic levels: allows distinction among of tribes and genera of the studied Commelinaceae, and is a species trait in the Pontederiaceae from the area. Expand
Morphological phylogeny of Tradescantia L. (Commelinaceae) sheds light on a new infrageneric classification for the genus and novelties on the systematics of subtribe Tradescantiinae
TLDR
The first morphology-based evolutionary hypothesis for Tradescantia is presented, based on the total evidence of the present morphological phylogeny, in accordance to the previously published molecular data. Expand
Seedling Morphology of some selected members of Commelinaceae and its bearing in taxonomic studies
TLDR
The affinity of the investigated taxa as revealed through multivariate analysis supports some of the relationships inferred by pollen morphology, floral morphology and DNA. Expand
Taxonomic and geographic notes on the neotropical Commelina (Commelinaceae)
TLDR
This work re-establishs C. dielsii, a yellow-flowered species only known from the type collected in north-eastern Argentina, which is morphologically allied to C. erecta and re-established C. tuberosa in Chile, which are also the first records of the occurrence of a native Commelina species in this country.

Wandering throughout South America: Taxonomic revision of Tradescantia subg. Austrotradescantia (D.R.Hunt) M.Pell. (Commelinaceae)
TLDR
The troublesome weed T. fluminensis has its specific limits clarified and its native range is presented so it can serve as a basis to better understanding its ecological requirements and to help control it throughout its invasive range. Expand
Wandering throughout South America: Taxonomic revision of Tradescantia subg. Austrotradescantia (D.R.Hunt) M.Pell. (Commelinaceae)
TLDR

Heteromorphism of stamens in monoclinous flowers of Tinantia erecta (Jacq.) Fenzl as an example of high variability of the androecium in the Commelinaceae family
TLDR
The morphological, anatomical, and cytological analyses of the androecium as well as the analysis of the microsporogenesis process and the formation of the male gametophyte in Tinantia erecta have demonstrated that the morphologically diverse stamens in this species do not differ anatomically.

Phylogenetic Relationships in the Commelinaceae: II. A Cladistic Analysis of rbcL Sequences and Morphology
TLDR
The phylogeny supports the most recent classification of the family with monophyletic tribes Tradescantieae (minus Palisota) and Commelineae, but is highly incongruent with a morphology-based phylogeny. Expand
Polyphyly and convergent morphological evolution in Commelinales and Commelinidae: evidence from rbcL sequence data.
TLDR
The numbers of species in families of the revised Commelinidae are related partly to the extent of adaptive radiation in those families, but seem more strongly related to nonadaptive features promoting speciation, such as restricted seed dispersal, polyploidy, aneuploidsy, and apomixis. Expand
Subtribal Relationships in Tribe Tradescantieae (Commelinaceae)Based on Molecular and Morphological Data
TLDR
P phylogenetic analysis of nucleotide sequence data from the chloroplast-encoded ndhF and rbcL genes, as well as 47 morphological and anatomical characters, were used to evaluate relationships within and among the subtribes of Tradescantieae and suggest the following. Expand

TLDR
Anatomical characters show promise for resolving phylogenetic relationships within the Commelinaceae, based upon their agreement with the most recent classification. Expand

Unraveling the evolutionary radiation of the families of the Zingiberales using morphological and molecular evidence.
TLDR
Evidence from branch lengths in the parsimony analyses and from the fossil record suggests that the Zingiberales originated in the Early Cretaceous and underwent a rapid radiation in the mid-Cretaceous, by which time most extant family lineages had diverged. Expand
The complex history of the genus Ilex L. (Aquifoliaceae): evidence from the comparison of plastid and nuclear DNA sequences and from fossil data
TLDR
During its history, the genus Ilex probably experienced frequent lineage sorting and interlineage hybridization with subsequent nuclear or cytoplasmic introgression, making the study of its history very complex. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the Bromeliiflorae-Commeliniflorae-Zingiberiflorae complex of monocots based on rbcL sequence comparisons
TLDR
Four cladistic hypotheses were constructed for Dahlgren's Bromeliiflorae-Commeliniflor Jaegerae-Zingiberiflorai- Zingiberales complex, primarily from suggestions of affinities according to morphology-based treatments, that the complex is monophyletic, with the Arecaceae as the closest outgroup.

Chloroplast DNA phylogeny, reticulate evolution, and biogeography of Paeonia (Paeoniaceae).
TLDR
A refined hypothesis of species phylogeny of section Paeonia was proposed by considering the discordance between the nuclear and cpDNA phylogenies to be results of hybrid speciation followed by inheritance of cpDNA of one parent and fixation of ITS sequences of another parent. Expand
