The circumscription and phylogenetic position of the tribe Durioneae (Bombacaceae or /Malvaceae/Helicteroideae) was investigated by supplementing a previously publishedndhF data set. The present analysis supports a narrow conception of Durioneae (excludingCamptostemon andPapuodendron) and confirms a close relationship withHelicteres, Reevesia, Ungeria, andTriplochiton (all of traditional Sterculiaceae). Phylogenetic relationships within Durioneae were inferred from a combined analysis ofndhF… 
A synopsis of Coelostegia (Bombacaceae/Malvaceae: Helicteroideae: Durioneae) and new records from Borneo
Gross morphological and micromorphological characters show that the genus Coelostegia can be readily distinguished from other genera in the Durioneae-group by the epicalyx being much shorter than the calyx, the induplicatesaccate calyx character and the ovary being partly enclosed by the receptacle.
Phylogenetic relationships of Malvatheca (Bombacoideae and Malvoideae; Malvaceae sensu lato) as inferred from plastid DNA sequences.
The results suggest that the Malvoideae originated in the Neotropics and that a mangrove taxon dispersed across the Pacific from South America to Australasia and later radiated out of Australasia to give rise to the ca.
Phylogenetic analysis of the Malvadendrina clade (Malvaceae s.l.) based on plastid DNA sequences
On the relevance of molecular tools for taxonomic revision in Malvales, Malvaceae s.l., and Dombeyoideae.
An overview of changes to the taxonomy of Malvales is presented, and three possible taxonomic schemes as part of an ongoing revision of the Mascarene Dombeyoideae are proposed.
Phylogenomics resolves deep subfamilial relationships in Malvaceae s.l.
A well-supported phylogenetic framework is presented for Malvaceae s.l. that will aid downstream revisions and evolutionary studies of this economically important plant family.
Comparative study of three species of Malvatheca (Bombacoideae and Malvoideae (Malvaceae sensu lato)using Morphological, Anatomical and RAPD-PCR analyses.
Three species are selected because they are commonly present in Egypt, and exhibit high medicinal values and contain cotton Silk fiber in their fruits which is valuable in fabric industry and investigated their genomic DNA banding patterns using randomly amplified bands (RAPD- PCR).
Paleocene Malvaceae from northern South America and their biogeographical implications.
The abundance of eumalvoid leaves and of bombacoid pollen in the midlate Paleocene of Colombia suggests that the Malvatheca group (Malvoideae + Bombacoideae) was already a common element in neotropical forests and does not support an Australasian origin for Eumalvoides.
Paraphyletic Syringa (Oleaceae): Evidence from Sequences of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA ITS and ETS Regions
Abstract Sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA ITS and ETS regions were used to examine phylogenetic relationships of Syringa and Ligustrum. Twenty-seven samples were included in parsimony analyses,
Phylogenetic Relationships within the Subfamily Sterculioideae (Malvaceae/Sterculiaceae-Sterculieae) Using the Chloroplast Gene ndhF
A parsimony analysis of ndhF nucleotide sequences representing 24 species and 13 genera of Sterculioideae strongly supports the monophyly of the group and suggests the recognition of Argyrodendron as separate from Heritiera, supports Acropogon as different from Sterculia, and Tarrietia as part of heritiera.


Support for an expanded family concept of Malvaceae within a recircumscribed order Malvales: a combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL DNA sequences
Sequence analyses of the plastid genes atp B and rbc L support an expanded order Malvales and propose to merge Sterculiaceae, Tiliaceae and Bombacaceae with Malvaceae and subdivide this enlarged family Malvoideae into nine subfamilies based on molecular, morphological, and biogeographical data.
Phylogenetic Relationships and Floral Evolution of the Byttnerioideae (“Sterculiaceae” or Malvaceae s.l.) Based on Sequences of the Chloroplast Gene, ndhF
Results imply that the unusual hooded petals of many Byttnerioideae are plesiomorphic for the clade, with subsequent transitions to large, flat petals or small, scale-like petals that lack a distinct hood.
Circumscription of the Malvales and relationships to other Rosidae: evidence from rbcL sequence data.
A two-step parsimony analysis on 125 rbcL sequences to clarify the composition of Malvales, to determine the relationships of some controversial families, and to identify the placement of the MalVales within Rosidae strongly support the monophyly of the core malvalean families.
Phylogeny of the core Malvales: evidence from ndhF sequence data.
There has been extensive homoplasy in characters previously used to delineate major taxonomic groups in core Malvales, and it is suggested that /Malvatheca do not have as a synapormophy monothecate anthers, as has been previously supposed but, instead, may be united by dithecate, transversely septate (polysporangiate) anothers.
Biogeography and floral evolution of baobabs (Adansonia, Bombacaceae) as inferred from multiple data sets.
The phylogeny does not permit unambiguous reconstruction of floral evolution but suggests the plausible hypothesis that hawkmoth pollination was ancestral in Adansonia and that there were two parallel switches to pollination by mammals in the genus.
A Phylogenetic Analysis of Epilobium (Onagraceae) Based on Nuclear Ribosomal DNA Sequences
The molecular phylogeny is compatible with some important independent characters and is useful for interpreting morphological and cytological evolution in Epilobium.
It will be seen that the Malvales are well defined by characters other than purely floristic ones; they form a very natural order.
Trends in the evolution of dicotyledonous seeds based on character associations, with special reference to pachychalazy and recalcitrance
Consideration of currently accepted dicta on seed character state polarity, suggests a reversal in the evolutionary status of pachychalazy and large seed size.
Combining Data in Phylogenetic Systematics: An Empirical Approach Using Three Molecular Data Sets in the Solanaceae
Data from sequences of two chloroplast DNA genes, ndhV and rbcL, and from restriction site mapping studies of the entire chloroplane genome were analyzed for the same set of 17 species of Solanaceae and the outgroup Ipomoea, finding the "X = 12" dade is the most well-supported dade within the family.
