Following (1) the large-scale molecular phylogeny of seed plants based on plastid rbcL gene sequences (published in 1993 by Chase et al., Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 80:528-580) and (2) the 18S nuclear phylogeny of flowering plants (published in 1997 by Soltis et al., Ann. Missouri Bot. Gard. 84:1-49), we present a phylogenetic analysis of flowering plants based on a second plastid gene, atpB, analyzed separately and in combination with rbcL sequences for 357 taxa. Despite some discrepancies, the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Molecular phylogenetics of Caryophyllales based on nuclear 18S rDNA and plastid rbcL, atpB, and matK DNA sequences.
TLDR
Two additional lineages are potentially appropriate to be elevated to the family level in the future: the genera Lophiocarpus and Corbichonia form a well-supported clade on the basis of molecular and chemical evidence, and Limeum appears to be separated from other Molluginaceae based on both molecular and ultrastructural data.
Systematics of Vitaceae from the viewpoint of plastid rbcL DNA sequence data
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of plastid rbcL DNA sequences for 20 species of Vitaceae s.l. (including Leeaceae) and eight outgroups from Dilleniaceae and Santalales is presented, showing a good correspondence with hypothesized floral and vegetative ontogenetic trends.
Analysis of 81 genes from 64 plastid genomes resolves relationships in angiosperms and identifies genome-scale evolutionary patterns
TLDR
Phylogenetic trees from multiple methods provide strong support for the position of Amborella as the earliest diverging lineage of flowering plants, followed by Nymphaeales and Austrobaileyales, and the plastid genome trees also provide strongSupport for a sister relationship between eudicots and monocots, and this group is sister to a clade that includes Chloranthales and magnoliids.
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.
Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from multiple genes as a tool for comparative biology
TLDR
The results of parsimony analyses of DNA sequences of the plastid genes rbcL and atpB and the nuclear 18S rDNA for 560 species of angiosperms and seven non-flowering seed plants are reported and show a well-resolved and well-supported phylogenetic tree for the angios perms for use in comparative biology.
Phylogenetic Analyses of Basal Angiosperms Based on Nine Plastid, Mitochondrial, and Nuclear Genes
TLDR
This study indicates caution in total evidence approaches in that some of the genes employed added signal that conflicted with the other genes in resolving certain parts of the phylogenetic tree.
Molecular phylogeny and character evolution of carnivorous plant families in Caryophyllales--revisited.
TLDR
Based on reliable tree topologies it is hypothesized that pitfall traps of Nepenthes and snap traps typical for Aldrovanda and Dionaea were derived from a common ancestor with adhesive flypaper traps.
Malpighiales phylogenetics: Gaining ground on one of the most recalcitrant clades in the angiosperm tree of life.
TLDR
These data provide greatly increased support for the recent additions of Aneulophus, Bhesa, Centroplacus, Ploiarium, and Rafflesiaceae to Malpighiales; sister relations of Phyllanthaceae + Picrodendraceae, monophyly of Hypericaceae, and polyphyly of Clusiaceae.
Phylogeny of seed plants based on evidence from eight genes.
TLDR
A data set of four plastid genes, three mitochondrial genes, and one nuclear gene for 19 exemplars representing the five groups of living seed plants revealed a gymnosperm clade that is sister to angiosperms and the preferred topology based on the LR test is that Gnetales are sister to Pseudotsuga.

Phylogenetics of seed plants : An analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid gene rbcL
TLDR
Two exploratory parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from 475 and 499 species of seed plants, respectively, representing all major taxonomic groups indicate that rbcL sequence variation contains historical evidence appropriate for phylogenetic analysis at this taxonomic level of sampling.
Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from multiple genes as a tool for comparative biology
TLDR
The results of parsimony analyses of DNA sequences of the plastid genes rbcL and atpB and the nuclear 18S rDNA for 560 species of angiosperms and seven non-flowering seed plants are reported and show a well-resolved and well-supported phylogenetic tree for the angios perms for use in comparative biology.
Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships Among Angiosperms: An Overview Based on rbcL and 18S rDNA Sequences
TLDR
18S rDNA sequence analysis confirms the rbcL-based inferences that Droseraceae and Nepenthaceae are closely related to the Caryophyllidae and that a number of members of Rosidae and Dilleniidae have as their closest relatives members of Asteridae.

TLDR
The results indicate that rbcL sequences may be too divergent to test phylogenetic relationships among major groups of green plants and may be beneficial to include more taxa in subsequent analyses, but there are indications that historical extinctions will prevent adequate sampling of some groups, such as the bryophytes and fern allies.
Molecular Phylogenetics of the Magnoliidae: Cladistic Analyses of Nucleotide Sequences of the Plastid Gene rbcL
TLDR
Six magnoliids formed five major groups, roughly corresponding to the Magnoliales, Laurales, Aristolochiaceae/Piperales, Nymphaeales, and Ranunculales/Papaverales; Ceratophyllum (CeratophyLLaceae) was found to be sister to all other angiosperms.
Evolutionary Analysis of Plant DNA Sequences
TLDR
Comparisons among maize, teosinte, and Tripsacum suggest that the rate of gene exchange associated with concerted evolution is not rapid, and it is concluded that DNA sequence comparisons of chloroplast-encoded genes will be particularly useful in phylogenetic analyses of higher taxonomic categories.
Molecular Phylogeny of the Papilionoideae (Family Leguminosae): RbcL Gene Sequences versus Chemical Taxonomy
TLDR
RbcL phylogeny is compared with profiles of alkaloids and other natural products and results indicate that secondary metabolite profiles, if compared with morphology or rbcL sequences, are of limited value as a taxonomic marker.

TLDR
Cl cladistic analysis of the combined molecular data sets for all three genes provides important new data with which to test previous hypotheses of inter-familial relationships in the angiosperm subclass Ranunculidae.

A Perspective on the Contribution of Plastid rbcL DNA Sequences to Angiosperm Phylogenetics
TLDR
By late 1991, the stage had been set for a dramatic increase in the amount of molecular data available on a wide range of seed plants, and this put workers focusing on rbcL in a position to discuss a large-scale analysis.
