A molecular phylogeny of Larix comprising 12 species was constructed from the sequence analysis of the paternally inherited cpDNA trnT-trnF region of 46 individuals. The most parsimonious tree split Larix into three sister clades: one clade was composed of two North American species, the other two were short-bracted and long-bracted species of Eurasia respectively except that L. sibirica was clustered in the long-bracted clade. The difference between the present cpDNA phylogeny and previous… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Picea (Pinaceae): implications for phylogeographical studies using cytoplasmic haplotypes.
TLDR
It is suggested that Picea originated in North America, and that its present distribution could stem from two times of dispersal from North America to Asia by the Beringian land bridge, and then from Asia to Europe. Expand
Recolonization and radiation in Larix (Pinaceae): evidence from nuclear ribosomal DNA paralogues
TLDR
This study suggests that the distribution pattern analysis of members of multiple gene family would be very useful in tracking the evolutionary history of some taxa with recent origin or rapid radiation that cannot be resolved by other molecular markers. Expand
Reticulate evolution in Thuja inferred from multiple gene sequences: implications for the study of biogeographical disjunction between eastern Asia and North America.
TLDR
Nucleotide sequences of five cpDNA regions, nrDNA ITS and two low-copy nuclear genes were employed to reconstruct the phylogeny and explore the historical biogeography of Thuja, a typical eastern Asia-North America disjunct genus, and the selection of molecular markers in biogeographic studies was discussed. Expand
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Pseudotsuga (Pinaceae): insights into the floristic relationship between Taiwan and its adjacent areas.
TLDR
It is suggested that Pseudotsuga might have originated from North America and then migrated to eastern Asia by the Bering land bridge during the early Miocene, and Taiwan is closely related to both southwest and east China in flora. Expand
Species-diagnostic markers in Larix spp. based on RAPDs and nuclear, cpDNA, and mtDNA gene sequences, and their phylogenetic implications
TLDR
Genetic markers from the nuclear, chloroplast, and mitochondrial genomes were developed to distinguish unambiguously among four larch species used in intensive forestry in eastern North America, and should be useful for the certification of larch breeding materials and hybrid stocks used inintensive forestry in the northern hemisphere. Expand
Phylogeography of Eurasian Larix species inferred from nucleotide variation in two nuclear genes.
TLDR
The results indicate that more intensive sampling especially from known refugial regions is necessary for inferring correct classification of Eurasian Larix species and inferring their postglacial migration. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Cedrus (Pinaceae) inferred from sequences of seven paternal chloroplast and maternal mitochondrial DNA regions.
TLDR
The results indicate that Cedrus could have an origin in the high latitude area of Eurasia, and its present distribution might result from vicariance of southerly migrated populations during climatic oscillations in the Tertiary and further fragmentation and dispersal of these populations. Expand
Marked Intragenomic Heterogeneity and Geographical Differentiation of nrDNA ITS in Larixpotaninii (Pinaceae)
Nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) of gymnosperms, especially Pinaceae, is characterized by slow concerted evolution and exhibits substantial ITS-region length variation (975–3663 bp), in sharp contrastExpand
Discordant mtDNA and cpDNA phylogenies indicate geographic speciation and reticulation as driving factors for the diversification of the genus Picea
TLDR
The results emphasize the reduced value of cpDNA to infer vertical descent and the speciation history for plants with paternal transmission and high dispersal of their chloroplast genome. Expand
Phylogeny of the Athyriaceae : evidence from chloroplast trnL- F region sequences
TLDR
These trees reveal that: (1) the results of the trnL- F region sequence analyses and those of the rbcL gene sequence analyses are largely congruent ; (2) Neoathyrium crenulatoserrulatum (Makino) Ching & Z. Wang should be transferred to Cornopteris Nakai ; (3) Pseudocystopteris Ching and Kuniwat2 sukia Pic. Expand

Internal transcribed spacer region evolution in Larix and Pseudotsuga (Pinaceae).
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis did not conflict with a stepping stone model of evolution for Pseudotsuga, but a basal lineage could not be inferred for either genus and a slow rate of concerted evolution among nrDNA loci was suggested. Expand
PCR-RFLP ANALYSIS OF THE CHLOROPLAST GENE trn K IN THE PINACEAE, WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO THE SYSTEMATIC POSITION OF CATHAYA
ABSTRACT The molecular phylogeny of the Pinaceae represented by 13 species of 10 genera was constructed from PCR-RFLP analysis of the chloroplast gene trn K, which was approximately 2557 bp long.Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of the genus Lycium (Solanaceae): inferences from chloroplast DNA sequences.
TLDR
To investigate phylogenetic and biogeographic relationships of the genus with emphasis on L. sandwicense, the coding region of matK, the two intergenic spacers trnT (UGU)-trnL (UAA) and trnF (GAA), and the trnL intron of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) were sequenced. Expand
Patterns of nucleotide substitution in angiosperm cpDNA trnL (UAA)-trnF (GAA) regions.
TLDR
Confidence in the link between mutation bias at the polymerase level and the actual fixation of substitutions as recorded on evolutionary trees is strengthened, and base compositions between the regions were highly similar in all six groups, suggesting that the angiosperm trnL-F regions evolve in a pattern different from that generally observed for nuclear and animal mtDNA. Expand
Phylogeny and divergence times in Pinaceae: evidence from three genomes.
TLDR
Intergeneric relationships of Pinaceae using sequences of the chloroplast matK gene, the mitochondrial nad5 gene, and the low-copy nuclear gene 4CL are studied to suggest morphology of both vegetative and reproductive organs has undergone convergent evolution within the pine family. Expand
Molecular phytogeny of conifers using RFLP analysis of PCR-amplified specific chloroplast genes
TLDR
The molecular phylogeny of conifers using restriction endonuclease fragment length polymorphism of six polymerase chain reaction-amplified chloroplast genes indicated that Cupress Families and Taxodiaceae are closely related families and that Sciadopitys verticillata is the basal lineage of Cupressaceae and taxodiaceae. Expand
Phylogenetic use of noncoding regions in the genus Gentiana L.: chloroplast trnL (UAA) intron versus nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer sequences.
TLDR
At the intrageneric level, at least in Gentiana, ITSs (especially ITS2) sequences seem to be more appropriate in the assessment of plant phylogenies and the cpDNA trnL intron seems to be preferable at the intergeneric level. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of extant gymnosperms and seed plant evolution: analysis of nuclear 18S rRNA sequences.

Genetic relationship among Eurasian and American Larix species based on allozymes
TLDR
The resulting phylogeny indicates a clear phylogeny between American and Eurasian species, in agreement with recent palaeontological findings that suggest that gene flow between Americans and Eurasians species has been unlikely since the last glaciation. Expand
Intra- and interspecific allozyme variability in Eurasian Larix Mill. species
TLDR
Far-eastern populations of Larix species, appear to be genetically close to both L. gmelinii and to L. olgensis, suggesting that they originated through introgressive hybridization between these two species. Expand
