Magnoliales, consisting of six families of tropical to warm-temperate woody angiosperms, were long considered the most archaic order of flowering plants, but molecular analyses nest them among other eumagnoliids. Based on separate and combined analyses of a morphological matrix (115 characters) and multiple molecular data sets (seven variable chloroplast loci and five more conserved genes; 14 536 aligned nucleotides), phylogenetic relationships were investigated simultaneously within… 
Phylogeny, molecular dating and floral evolution of Magnoliidae (Angiospermae)
TLDR
The goal of this study was to provide new reliable calibration points in order to conduct molecular dating analyses and provide key results on the evolution of Magnoliidae and raises several new questions such as the impact of geological crises on diversification of the group or the influence of pollinators and the environment on the Evolution of floral morphology.
Pollen Diversity and Evolution in Myristicaceae (Magnoliales)
TLDR
New scanning electron microscopy observations on pollen of 13 genera, including all Asian generA, which had previously received very little attention from palynologists are presented, to increase knowledge of the diversity of pollen shapes, aperture shapes, tectal sculpture and microsculpture, and infratectal structure across the family.
Five major shifts of diversification through the long evolutionary history of Magnoliidae (angiosperms)
TLDR
The ages of the main clades of Magnoliidae (above the family level) are older than previously thought, and in several lineages, there were significant increases and decreases in net diversification rates.
Androecium diversity and evolution in Myristicaceae (Magnoliales), with a description of a new Malagasy genus, Doyleanthus gen. nov.
TLDR
The unusual synandrium of Mauloutchia, nested among genera with strictly sessile anthers fused to the column, appears to be secondarily derived, and the diversity of patterns observed within the genus may be interpreted as the result of a stepwise transformation involving reappearance and elongation of filaments, increase of anther number, and modification ofAnther phyllotaxy.
Angiosperm phylogeny: 17 genes, 640 taxa.
TLDR
It is confirmed that with large amounts of sequence data, most deep-level relationships within the angiosperms can be resolved and will be of broad utility for many areas of biology, including physiology, ecology, paleobiology, and genomics.
Phylogenetic analysis of Nymphaeales using fast-evolving and noncoding chloroplast markers
TLDR
A comprehensive study of phylogenetic relationships within the Nymphaeales from a dataset containing 24 representatives of the order, including all currently recognized genera and all subgenera of the genus Nymphaea, plus 5 outgroup taxa, underscores that more diverse genera, if not clearly known to be monophyletic, should be represented by all major lineages.
Evolution of Angiosperm Pollen. 2. The Basal Angiosperms1
TLDR
The systematic significance of pollen morphology in basal angiosperm clades including the ANITA group (Amborellaceae, Nymphaeaceae, Schisandraceae, Trimeniaceae, and Austrobaileyaceae), Ceratophyllales, Chloranthales, and magnoliids is discussed, as well as in related lineages, i.e., monocots and basal eudicots.
Evolution of syncarpy and other morphological characters in African Annonaceae: A posterior mapping approach
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses recovered a fully resolved clade comprising twelve genera endemic to Africa, including Isolona and Monodora, which was nested within the so-called long-branch clade, which is the largest and most species-rich clade of African genera identified to date within Annonaceae.
C HARACTER EVOLUTION IN A NAXAGOREA (A NNONACEAE ) 1
TLDR
A detailed discussion of morphological characters used in a combined morphological and molecular phylogenetic analysis of Anaxagorea is presented, along with implications of the analysis for character evolution in the genus.

Morphological Phylogenetic Analysis of Basal Angiosperms: Comparison and Combination with Molecular Data
TLDR
Combined analyses of morphological and molecular data generally yield the same topologies as molecular analyses, but morphology overcomes weak molecular evidence in indicating that Chloranthaceae belong just above the basal grade, that monocots are related to Piperales, and that Lauraceae are linked with Hernandiaceae.
Molecular Phylogeny of Magnolia (Magnoliaceae) Inferred from cpDNA Sequences and Evolutionary Divergence of the Floral Scents
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of Magnoliaceae was constructed to reveal phylogenetic relationships of taxa by sequencing the trnK intron, psbA-trnH, and atpB-rbcL intergenic spacer regions of chloroplast DNA from 25 Magnolia, two Michelia, and two Liriodendron taxa.
Pollen Diversity and Evolution in Myristicaceae (Magnoliales)
TLDR
New scanning electron microscopy observations on pollen of 13 genera, including all Asian generA, which had previously received very little attention from palynologists are presented, to increase knowledge of the diversity of pollen shapes, aperture shapes, tectal sculpture and microsculpture, and infratectal structure across the family.
Phylogenetic relationships in family Magnoliaceae inferred from ndhF sequences.
TLDR
The molecular data strongly suggest that a taxonomic realignment of infrafamilial delimitations and compositions should be considered in the Magnoliaceae.
Phylogenetic Position and Floral Function of Siparuna (Siparunaceae: Laurales)
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of the molecular and morphological data reveal that Siparuna and its sister taxon, the monotypic West African genus Glossocalyx, are not closely related to the remaining Monimiidae, supporting the view that the Monimiaceae in the wide sense are polyphyletic.
Phylogenetic relationships of the Magnoliaceae inferred from cpDNA matK sequences
TLDR
Molecular evidence from matK sequence data suggests that the phylogenetic positions and the delimitation of the eight genera Magnolia, Michelia, Tsoongiodendron, Paramichelia, Alcimandra, Kmeria, Parakmeria and Manglietiastrum need to be reconsidered.
Phylogeny of Basal Angiosperms: Analyses of Five Genes from Three Genomes1
TLDR
The standard most parsimonious trees search, taxon deletion analyses, and constraint analyses in combination with Kishino‐Hasegawa tests provided a rigorous analytical perspective for identifying Amborella, Nymphaeales, and Illiciales‐Trimeniaceae‐Austrobaileya (ANITA) as the basalmost lineages of extant angiosperms.
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.
Phylogenetic affinities of Monimiaceae based on cpDNA gene and spacer sequences
TLDR
Nucleotide sequence data from the chloroplast rbcL gene and the trnL-trnF intergenic spacer were used to infer the phylogenetic affinities of Monimiaceae to other Laurales, and to assess whether the family in the traditional wide sense is monophyletic.
Utility of 17 chloroplast genes for inferring the phylogeny of the basal angiosperms.
TLDR
Combined data from these 17 genes permit sturdy, well-resolved inference of major aspects of basal angiosperm relationships, demonstrating that the new primers are valuable tools for sorting out the deepest events in flowering plant phylogeny.
