Key MethodWe used nucleotide sequences from the internal transcribed spacers and 5.8S gene of nuclear ribosomal DNA to test competing phylogenetic and biogeographic hypotheses in Gleditsia. Eleven of 13 Gleditsia species were sampled, along with two species of its sister genus, Gymnocladus. Analyses of ITS data and of a combined data set that included sequences of ITS and two chloroplast genes supported several conclusions that were interpreted in light of fossil data and current legume phylogeny…Expand
Phylogenetic Systematics of Strophostyles (Fabaceae): A North American Temperate Genus Within a Neotropical Diversification
TLDR
A combined parsimony analysis of cpDNA trnK, nrDNA ITS/5.8S, and morphology reveals that the genus Strophostyles is monophyletic, suggesting a recent and rapid range expansion throughout eastern North America.
Relationships Among Resin-Producing Detarieae s.l. (Leguminosae) as Inferred by Molecular Data
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships as inferred from molecular data resolved the intergeneric affinities but the main clades obtained are different from the groupings proposed by classifications based primarily on morphological characters.
Genetic relationships among American species of the genus Prosopis (Mimosoideae, Leguminosae) inferred from ITS sequences: evidence for long-distance dispersal
TLDR
The phylogeny, DIVA analysis, and the pattern of genetic distances indicate that the ancestral area for the American Prosopis sections was wide, from south-western USA to Central and northern Argentina.
Molecular evidence for an Asian origin and a unique westward migration of species in the genus Castanea via Europe to North America.
TLDR
To infer the biogeographical history of the genusCastanea, the phylogeny of Castanea was estimated using DNA sequence data from different regions of the chloroplast genome to support the genus castanea as a monophyletic group with CastaneA crenata as basal.
Phylogenetic Relationships of the Northeastern South American Brownea Clade of Tribe Detarieae (Leguminosae: Caesalpinioideae) Based on Morphology and Molecular Data
TLDR
Traditional generic, species, and intraspecies boundaries are assessed and reevaluated using the results of the combined phylogenetic analysis of selected members of the Brownea clade.
Systematic Position of the Anomalous Genus Cadia and the Phylogeny of the Tribe Podalyrieae (Fabaceae)
TLDR
It is proposed that Cadia be transferred to Podalyrieae from the paraphyletic tribe Sophoreae, indicating that a major radiation has taken place during the middle to late Miocene and early Pliocene and nonsprouting species have a higher rate of molecular evolution than sprouting species.
Phylogeography of Schotia (Fabaceae): Recent Evolutionary Processes in an Ancient Thicket Biome Lineage
TLDR
DNA sequence data from the chloroplast and nuclear genomes are used to infer interspecific phylogenetic relationships, elucidate the evolutionary history of Schotia, and to extrapolate findings to the history of the thicket biome.
Floral Morphology in Caesalpinioid Legumes: Testing the Monophyly of the “Umtiza Clade”
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses of data from the chloroplast trnL intron and trnF spacer resulted in a single most parsimonious tree in which Umtiza is grouped with six other small caesalpinioid genera in an association of taxonomically and biogeographically disparate taxa.
Conservation genetics and evolutionary history of Gleditsia caspica: Inferences from allozyme diversity in populations from Azerbaijan
TLDR
Using allozyme markers to investigate genetic diversity within two populations from Azerbaijan, it was discovered that a population from a protected nature reserve was composedlargely of first-generation hybrids between G. caspica and G. triacanthos, a derivative of G. japonica, a widely distributed species of eastern Asia.
Biogeographic analysis of the woody plants of the Southern Appalachians: Implications for the origins of a regional flora.
TLDR
Divergence time data suggest that climate change in the Late Miocene to Early Pliocene generated disjunct patterns within North America, and continuous splitting times during the last 45 million years support the hypothesis that widespread distributions formed repeatedly during favorable periods, with serial cooling trends producing pseudocongruent area disjunctions between eastern North America and eastern Asia.

Cladistic biogeography of Gleditsia (Leguminosae) based on ndhF and rpl16 chloroplast gene sequences.
TLDR
Cl cladistic analysis of chloroplast gene sequences was used to test biogeographic hypotheses in the woody genus Gleditsia, finding that there is a fundamental division of the genus into three clades, only one of which contains both Asian and North American species.
ORIGIN AND BIOGEOGRAPHY OF AESCULUS L. (HIPPOCASTANACEAE): A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENETIC PERSPECTIVE
TLDR
It is inferred that Aesculus originated during the transition from the Cretaceous to the Tertiary (~65 M.Y.B.P.) at a high latitude in eastern Asia and spread into North America and Europe as an element of the “boreotropical flora”; the current disjunct distribution of the genus resulted from geological and climatic changes during theTertiary.
Phylogenetic Relationships of Pogoniinae (Vanilloideae, Orchidaceae): An Herbaceous Example of the Eastern North America-Eastern Asia Phytogeographic Disjunction
TLDR
The structure of the cladograms and the high levels of bootstrap support strongly indicate that the genus Cleistes is paraphyletic and this phylogenetic study adds an additional herbaceous example to the growing list of plants that demonstrate this classical biogeographic pattern.
Phylogeny of Weigela and Diervilla (Caprifoliaceae) Based on Nuclear rDNA ITS Sequences: Biogeographic and Taxonomic Implications
TLDR
Substantial morphological differences between Diervilla and Weigela middendorffiana do not support the morphological stasis concept which has been considered as a general evolutionary mode among the Asian and North American disjunct taxa.
Phylogenetic relationships and evolution in Chrysosplenium (Saxifragaceae) based on matK sequence data.
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences of the chloroplast gene matK for species of Chrysosplenium to elucidate relationships, test Hara's biogeographic hypothesis for the genus, and examine chromosomal and gynoecial diversification revealed that both sections Oppositifolia and Alternifolia are monophyletic and form two large sister clades.
Phylogeny and Biogeography of Corylus (Betulaceae): Inferences from ITS Sequences
Abstract Nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) regions were used to address questions about the taxonomy, phylogeny, and biogeography of the hazelnut genus, Corylus (Betulaceae). The
Molecular evolution of the Leguminosae: phylogeny of the three subfamilies based on rbcL-sequences
TLDR
Using Polygalaceae as an outgroup, the analysis of rbcL sequences showed that the tribes Detarieae/Amherstieae and Cercideae appear to have diverged earlier than the remaining tribes of Caesalpinioideae and might deserve a subfamily rank.
Phylogeny and biogeography of Juglans (Juglandaceae) based on matK and ITS sequence data.
TLDR
These analyses consistently supported Juglans as a monophyletic group and as the sister group to the genus Pterocarya and the fossil record suggests that the butternuts had evolved by the early Oligocene in North America.
Zea systematics: ribosomal ITS evidence.
TLDR
The ITS data indicated a near contemporary divergence of domesticated maize and its two closest wild relatives.
A phylogenetic and biogeographic study of Hamamelis (Hamamelidaceae), an eastern Asian and eastern North American disjunct genus
TLDR
Fossil evidence supported the Bering land bridge hypothesis as the explanation for the formation of the disjunct pattern in Hamamelis, and the need for a taxonomic reexamination is suggested.
