Phylogenetic relationships within tribe Phyllantheae, the largest tribe of the family Phyllanthaceae, were examined with special emphasis on the large genus Phyllanthus. Nuclear ribosomal ITS and plastid matK DNA sequence data for 95 species of tribe Phyllantheae, including representatives of all subgenera of Phyllanthus (except Cyclanthera) and several hitherto unplaced infrageneric groups, were analyzed. Results for ITS and matK are generally concordant, although some species are placed… 
Molecular phylogenetics of tribe Poranthereae (Phyllanthaceae; Euphorbiaceae sensu lato).
A molecular phylogenetic analysis of the newly circumscribed and expanded tribe Poranthereae (Phyllanthaceae) is presented, supporting the recognition of Andrachne and Leptopus as distinct genera.
Systematic wood anatomy of the tribe Phyllantheae (Phyllanthaceae, Euphorbiaceae s.l.) from India: implication in reinstatement of Phyllanthus, Glochidion and allies.
The present paper provides a comprehensive wood anatomical survey of sixteen Indian species belonging to six genera, viz. Breynia, Flueggea, Glochidion, Leptopus, Margaritaria and Phyllanthus, of
Phylogenetic Relationships and Character Evolution in Neotropical Phyllanthus (Phyllanthaceae), with a Focus on the Cuban and Caribbean Taxa
The majority of species in the Caribbean belong to a single clade that has evolved from Neotropical ancestors, well circumscribed with morphology and corresponds to subgenus Xylophylla, the concept of which is adjusted here to be monophyletic.
A taxonomic revision of Phyllanthus subgenus Macraea (Phyllanthaceae)
Within the morphologically diverse pantropical genus Phyllanthus, many subgenera, sections and subsections are recognized and a new species from the Philippines, PhyllAnthus ridsdalei, is described.
The rise and fall of Sauropus (Phyllanthaceae) : a molecular phylogenetic analysis of Sauropus and allies
The molecular phylogenetic analyses show that Sauropus in the broad sense is composed of two distinct groups, the former Australian Synostemon and the Southeast Asian SauropUS in the strict sense with the monophyletic Breynia embedded in the latter.
Chloroplast Genome of Phyllanthus Emblica and Leptopus Cordifolius: Comparative Analysis and Phylogenetic within Family Phyllanthaceae
High variability was seen in number of oligonucleotide repeats while analysis of guanine-cytosine (GC) content, codon usage, amino acid frequency, simple sequence repeats analysis, synonymous and non-synonymous substitutions, and transition and transversion substitutions showed similarities in all Phyllanthaceae species.
Phylogeny and proposed circumscription of Breynia, Sauropus and Synostemon (Phyllanthaceae), based on chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences
The results supported reinstatement of Synostemon, previously included in Sauropus s.str.
Nuclear ITS Sequences Help Disentangle Phyllanthus reticulatus (Phyllanthaceae), an Asian Species not Occurring in Africa, but Introduced to Jamaica
A maximum likelihood tree for accessions of P. reticulatus from throughout its supposed range (plus relevant outgroups) shows that the Jamaican plants represent the Asian species, and identical ITS sequences in Asian and Jamaican P.reticULatus indicate a recent introduction.
Taxonomic revision of Phyllanthus (Phyllanthaceae) in Madagascar and the Comoro Islands I: synopsis and subgenera Isocladus, Betsileani, Kirganelia and Tenellanthus
The taxonomic treatment in this paper includes the 11 species, four subspecies and two varieties of subgenera Isocladus G. L. Webster and Tenellanthus Jean F. Brunel in Madagascar and the Comoro Islands.
Delimitation of Sauropus (Phyllanthaceae) based on plastid matK and nuclear ribosomal ITS DNA Sequence data.
Molecular data indicate that Synostemon should be reinstated at the same level as Sauropus s.s. and that Sauropu s.


Molecular phylogenetic analysis of Phyllanthaceae (Phyllanthoideae pro parte, Euphorbiaceae sensu lato) using plastid RBCL DNA sequences.
Analysis of plastid rbcL DNA sequence data of the pantropical family Phyllanthaceae and related biovulate lineages of Euphorbiaceae sensu lato is presented and Antidesma, Bischofia, Hymenocardia, Martretia, and Uapaca, all of which have previously been placed in monogeneric families, are confirmed as members of PhyllAnthaceae.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of uniovulate Euphorbiaceae (Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto) using plastid RBCL and TRNL-F DNA sequences.
Parsimony and Bayesian analyses of plastid rbcL and trnL-F DNA sequence data of the pantropical family Euphorbiaceae sensu stricto (s.s.) show that two subfamilies, 14 tribes, and 10 genera were found to be para- or polyphyletic.
Systematic Foliar Morphology of Phyllanthoideae (Euphorbiaceae).
Results indicated that several major tribes recognized in the most recent classification of the Phyllanthoideae subfamily are essentially monophyletic, including Aporuseae, Bridelieae, Drypeteae, and most of WielandieAE, whereas others, notably Antidesmeae, are probably paraphy- letic.
Molecular phylogenetics of Phyllanthaceae: evidence from plastid MATK and nuclear PHYC sequences.
Plastid matK and a fragment of the low-copy nuclear gene PHYC were sequenced for 30 genera of Phyllanthaceae to evaluate tribal and generic delimitation and DNA sequence data for Keayodendron and Zimmermanniopsis are presented for the first time.
Pollen morphology and phylogenetic relationships in neotropical Phyllanthus (Euphorbiaceae)
Pollen morphological data suggest that the neotropical taxa of Phyllanthus have arisen following colonization from Africa and Asia (subgenus Emblica).

Abstract: A revision of Phyllanthus sect. Hylaeanthus (subg. Conami) treats seven species, mostly with a primarily Amazonian distribution, as well as one species of uncertain affinity. The section
Subtribal and generic relationships of Maxillarieae (Orchidaceae) with emphasis on Stanhopeinae: combined molecular evidence.
The monophyly of and phylogenetic relationships within the orchid tribe Maxillarieae Pfitzer were evaluated using parsimony analyses of combined nuclear ribosomal and plastid DNA sequence data of ITS
A Revision of Phyllanthus (Euphorbiaceae) in Eastern Melanesia
The aim of this paper is to review the species of eastern Melanesia, defined in approximately the circumscriptions of Good (1974) and van Balgooy (1971) as including the Santa Cruz Islands, New Hebrides, Fiji, Tonga, and Niue, and to describe two new species belonging to the section Gomphidium.
Molecular systematics of Iridaceae: evidence from four plastid DNA regions.
In the combined tree, all subfamilies were resolved as monophyletic, except Nivenioidae that formed a grade in which Ixioideae were embedded, and this subfamily also lacks clear morphological synapomorphies and is highly heterogeneous, so it is difficult to develop a strong case on nonmolecular grounds for their monophyly.
