Abstract Phylogenetic relationships in Mentha were inferred from DNA sequences of the chloroplast (cp) rpl16 intron and trnL-trnF region. [] Key Result Based on cpDNA data, Mentha is strongly supported as monophyletic. The suggestions that M. cervina and M. cunninghamii should be placed in other genera gain no support from this analysis.

Heterogeneity of three molecular data partition phylogenies of mints related to M. x piperita (Mentha; Lamiaceae).

Light is shed on differential of introgression of different genome regions in mint hybrids as well as the potential of three data partitions to reconstruct the phylogeny of mints related to M. x piperita.

A Revised Phylogeny of the Mentha spicata Clade Reveals Cryptic Species

It is found that two of three traditional species in the subsection Spicatae are polyphyletic, as is the subsection as a whole, while the real number of cryptic species was underestimated, and its taxonomic status should be revised.

Phylogeny of the Stachys coccinea (Lamiaceae) Complex Based on Molecular and Morphological Data

It is found that morphological variation in this complex insufficiently circumscribed members of the complex, possibly caused by plasticity of diagnostic morphological characters.

Molecular phylogenetics of Chelonopsis ( Lamiaceae: Gomphostemmateae) as inferred from nuclear and plastid DNA and morphology

The molecular results indicate that the tribe Gomphostemmateae is monophyletic; Bostrychanthera is embedded in Chelonopsis; andChelonopsis comprises two clades, one encompassing the taxa of Chelonopsy subg.

Leaf micromorphology of 19 Mentha taxa

This study included examination of the previously uninvestigated Australian species, M. australis and M. diemenica, to characterise the micromorphology of Mentha leaves and indicates this should be considered when comparing relative cell size between species.

Phylogenetics of selected Mentha species on the basis of rps8, rps11 and rps14 chloroplast genes

It was found that Eam1104I andAlw44I based PCR-RFLP of rps14 gene could serve as a specific marker for Mentha spicataidentification and differentiation, showing considerable level of genetic similarity among the Mentinha species.

Phylogenetische und taxonomische Untersuchungen an der Subtribus Menthinae (Lamiaceae, Nepetoideae, Mentheae) unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Satureja-Komplexes

This work investigates the diversiWcation of Micromeria on the Canary Islands and Madeira at the interand infraspeciWc level using inter simple sequence repeat PCR (ISSR), the trnK-Intron and the trNT-trnL-spacer of the cpDNA and a low copy nuclear gene.

Molecular fingerprinting of peppermint (Mentha piperita) and some Mentha hybrids by sequencing and RFLP analysis of the 5S rRNA Non-Transcribed Spacer (NTS) region

Essential oil composition showed clustering patterns similar to DNA fingerprint, with a clear discrimination between plants producing menthofuran and those containing piperitenone oxide.



Using Molecular Data to Test a Biogeographic Connection of the Macaronesian Genus Bystropogon (Lamiaceae) to the New World: A Case of Conflicting Phylogenies

The strict consensus tree of this analysis shows with moderate bootstrap support that Bystropogon is sister to the Old World taxa Acinos, Ziziphora, and Clinopodium vulgare, and the cpDNA phylogeny strongly supports a relationship of Bystropyogon with a clade of New World mint taxa.

Salvia (Lamiaceae) is not monophyletic: implications for the systematics, radiation, and ecological specializations of Salvia and tribe Mentheae.

In a preliminary investigation of infrageneric relationships within Salvia, the monophyly of the genus and its relationship to other members of the tribe Mentheae were investigated using the chloroplast DNA regions rbcL and trnL-F.

Assessment of genetic relationships in Mentha species

A set of 60 random primers was used to analyse 11accessions from six taxa of Mentha developed byCIMAP. These accessions were maintained in the nationalgene bank for medicinal and aromatic plants at

Hybridization in the section Mentha (Lamiaceae) inferred from AFLP markers.

The authors' AFLP analysis supports taxonomic classification established among Mentha species by conventional (morphological, cytological, and chemical) methods and allows the assessment of phenetic relationships between species and the hybrids M. spicata and M. × piperita, based for the first time on molecular markers.

The tortoise and the hare: choosing between noncoding plastome and nuclear Adh sequences for phylogeny reconstruction in a recently diverged plant group.

The relative utility of seven noncoding cpDNA regions and a pair of homoeologous nuclear genes for resolving recent divergences, using tetraploid cottons (Gossypium) as a model system, is tested, with enhanced resolution obtained using the nuclear genes.

Phylogeny of Rubus (rosaceae) based on nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer region sequences.

Using nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer region sequences to generate the first phylogeny of Rubus based on a large, molecular data set indicates that Rubus plus Dalibarda form a strongly supported clade, and D. repens may nest within Rubus.

Phylogeny inLabiatae s. l., inferred from cpDNA sequences

Sequences ofrbcL andndhF were analysed independently and in combination to resolve phylogenetic relationships inLabiatae s. l. Monophyly ofLabiatae s. l was supported by all three analyses.Congea

Mentha canadensis L. (Lamiaceae): a relict amphidiploid from the Lower Tertiary

Thirty-nine F 1 hybrids of this cross are similar to 23 clones of M canadensis L. from North America and Asia with 2n = 96 when compared by chromosome numbers, morphology, and essential oils.

Pacific Biogeography of the Asteraceae Genus Abrotanella (Senecioneae, Blennospermatinae)

The analysis revealed a convoluted pattern, suggesting several cases of dispersal in the genus Abrotanella, and an underlying pattem in agreement with geology if South America is considered as the sister area to the West Pacific.

Parsimony analysis of cpDNA restriction site variation in subfamily Nepetoideae (Labiatae)

Parsimony analysis of cpDNA restriction site variation supports monophyly of subfamily Nepetoideae, and inferred relationships are congruent with the classification of Cantino, Harley, and Wagstaff (1992, Advances in labiate sciences) but conflict to varying degrees with traditional classifications.
