The present study is concerned with the evolutionary relationships among the Euasterids II, a group of angiosperms that includes the orders Apiales, Aquifoliales, Asterales, and Dipsacales together with several small, poorly known families yet unplaced as to order.Parsimony analysis of nucleotide sequence data from the chloroplast genes atpB, ndhF and rbcL together with morphological data are used to construct a phylogeny of the order Asterals, which in the present sense includes 11 families… 

Evolutionary Studies in Asterids Emphasising Euasterids II

TLDR
This thesis deals with evolutionary relationships within the asterids, a group of plants comprising about one-third of all flowering plants, and identifies two new families: Pennantiaceae and Stemonuraceae, which were formerly included in Icacinaceae.

Phylogeny and Phylogenetic Nomenclature of the Campanulidae Based on an Expanded Sample of Genes and Taxa

TLDR
A phylogenetic classification of Campanulidae with phylogenetic definitions for all well-supported major clades is provided and a number of enigmatic taxa are confidently placed, some whose relationships were previously unresolved and some never before included.

Evolution of the Australasian families Alseuosmiaceae , Argophyllaceae , and Phellinaceae

TLDR
This thesis deals with evolutionary relationships within the asterids, a group of plants comprising about one-third of all flowering plants, and identifies two new families: Pennantiaceae and Stemonuraceae, which were formerly included in Icacinaceae.

An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IV

TLDR
A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided and the use of bracketing families that could be included optionally in broader circumscriptions with other related families are expanded.

Towards a phylogenetic nomenclature of Tracheophyta

TLDR
Criteria and approaches used here to choose among competing preexisting names for a clade, to select a definition type, to choose appropriate specifiers, and to restrict the use of a name to certain phylogenetic contexts may be widely applicable when naming other clades.

An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants:

TLDR
A revised and updated classification for the families of flowering plants is provided, with a number of newly adopted orders.

Phylogenetics of Escallonia (Escalloniaceae) based on plastid DNA sequence data

TLDR
Five strongly supported clades that are geographically structured are recovered, suggesting that the evolutionary history of the Escallonia genus may be linked to historical processes, including the uplift of mountainous systems in South America.

A survey of tricolpate (eudicot) phylogenetic relationships.

TLDR
The phylogenetic structure of the tricolpate clade (or eudicots) is presented through a survey of their major subclades, each of which is briefly characterized, and the support for the monophyly of each clade is assessed through citation of the pertinent molecular phylogenetic literature.

Phylogenetics and diversification of Escallonia (Escalloniaceae)

TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses revealed that Escallonia is monophyletic, a remarkable level of geographical phylogenetic structure, and a widespread absence of species-level monophyly, consistent with the hypothesis that geography played an important role in the early history ofEscallonia by separating populations, which later diversified rapidly and/or recently in isolation.

RELATIONSHIP OF THE ORDER APIALES TO SUBCLASS ASTERIDAE : A RE[hyphen]EVALUATION OF MORPHOLOGICAL CHARACTERS BASED ON INSIGHTS FROM MOLECULAR DATA

TLDR
Recent contributions from molecular analyses are reviewed and combined using a ‘supertree’ approach to test traditional hypotheses of relationships involving Apiales, and to re-evaluate assumptions of character-state evolution in the order.

Phylogeny of the eudicots : a nearly complete familial analysis based on rbcL gene sequences

TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of 589 plastid rbcL gene sequences representing nearly all eudicot families was performed, and bootstrap re-sampling was used to assess support for clades.

Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences

TLDR
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.

Evolution of the Australasian families Alseuosmiaceae, Argophyllaceae, and Phellinaceae

Based on results from cladistic analyses of morphology and DNA sequences (the two chlo- roplast genes rbcL and ndhF), the three Australasian families Alseuosmiaceae, Argophyllaceae, and Phelli-

The circumscription and systematic position of Carpodetaceae

TLDR
Parsimony analyses of matrices comprising rbcL sequences of 80 taxa sampled from the entire Asteridae and Rosidae provide support for a sister group relationship between Carpodetus and a clade comprising the closely related Australian genera Abrophyllum and Cuttsia.

Polyphyletism of Celastrales deduced from a chloroplast noncoding DNA region.

TLDR
Several additional dicots are added, sampled from 6 of the 7 families of Celastrales sensu Cronquist and 19 putatively related genera, based on chloroplast rbcL 5' flanking sequences.

Phylogeny and generic interrelationships of the Stylidiaceae (Asterales), with a possible extreme case of floral paedomorphosis.

TLDR
Cladistic analyses of Stylidiaceae (Asterales), using Donatiaceae as outgroup and with both morphological and molecular characters, produced two equally parsimonious cladograms that indicate that Levenhookia and Stylidium are sister groups and that Ore- ostylidium is nested within Stylidia.

Monophyly of the Asteridae and Identification of Their Major Lineages Inferred From DNA Sequences of rbcL

A parsimony analysis of 57 angiosperm rbcL sequences was conducted to test the monophyly of the Asteridae and to identify major lineages within the Asteridae. Three major clades, the Caryophyllidae,

Multiple origin of the tropical forest tree family Icacinaceae.

TLDR
Analyses of DNA sequences from four genes and morphological data show that the members of the tropical forest tree family Icacinaceae do not have a common origin.

Phylogenetic Implications of Pollen Morphology and Ultrastructure in The Barnadesioideae (Asteraceae)

TLDR
Palynological characters, when placed in the context of current phylogenies for the Barnadesioideae, suggest additional phylogenetic analyses are needed to re-evaluate intergeneric relationships within the subfamily.
