  author={Yun Feng and Sang-Hun Oh and Paul S Manos},
Abstract Phylogenetic analyses of DNA sequences of six species of Platanus were conducted to estimate species relationships and analyze biogeographic history. On the basis of a broader analysis of the third exon of the nuclear gene LEAFY, the root node for the genus was confirmed to fall between subg. Castaneophyllum (P. kerrii) and the species of subg. Platanus. Separate phylogenetic analyses of the nuclear ribosomal ITS region, the 3′ region of the second intron of LEAFY, and the chloroplast… 

Molecular systematics of the parasitic genus Conopholis (Orobanchaceae) inferred from plastid and nuclear sequences.

These analyses recovered three distinct lineages indicating that there could be a minimum of three species within the genus Conopholis, which is clearly paraphyletic and shows evidence of belonging to at least two separate lineages.

Phylogenetics and genomic patterns of speciation in Pinus with an empahsis on subgenus Strobus

It is demonstrated that Pinus chiapensis is a distinct species, but that taxonomy is not universally accepted, and the absence of allelic coalescence is a severe constraint in the application of phylogenetic methods in Pinus.

Phylogenetics of Taxus Using the Internal Transcribed Spacers of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA and Plastid trnL-F Regions

P phylogenetic analyses were conducted on DNA sequences using Maximum Likelihood, Bayesian Inference and TCS haplotype networks on single and combined gene regions obtained for the nuclear ribosomal ITS region and the plastid trnL intron andtrnL-F intergenic spacer to address differences in taxonomic circumscription.

Plastid DNA sequencing and nuclear SNP genotyping help resolve the puzzle of central American Platanus.

BACKGROUND AND AIMS Recent research on the history of Platanus reveals that hybridization phenomena occurred in the central American species. This study has two goals: to help resolve the evolutive

Phylogeographic pattern of the plane leaf miner, Phyllonorycter platani (STAUDINGER, 1870) (Lepidoptera: Gracillariidae) in Europe

Both post-glacial recolonization and recent expansion events influenced the present genetic structure of P. platani, showing at least two refugia during the last ice age: one in the Balkan Peninsula and the other in the Caucasus region.

Its evolution in Platanus (Platanaceae): homoeologues, pseudogenes and ancient hybridization.

It was found that putative non-functional ITS copies ('pseudogenes') form distinct groups in phylograms and splits graphs, and that pseudogenous lineages reflect ancient hybridization events conserved in the ITS.

ITS Evolution in Platanus (Platanaceae): Homoeologues, Pseudogenes

It was found that putative non-functional ITS copies ('pseudogenes') form distinct groups in phylo- grams and splits graphs, and that pseudogenous lineages reflect ancient hybridization events conserved in the ITS.

Molecular phylogenetics and cupule evolution in Fagaceae as inferred from nuclear CRABS CLAW sequences

This work used CRABS CLAW, a single-copy nuclear gene, to generate over 2,900 base pairs of new sequence data, and combined it with previously collected molecular data to examine morphological evolution in the Fagaceae, and proposed a new hypothesis to explain the evolution of the unusual cupules of Asian Lithocarpus and Chrysolepis.

Widespread genealogical nonmonophyly in species of Pinus subgenus Strobus.

It is felt that incomplete lineage sorting remains the best explanation for the polymorphisms shared among species, and taxa sharing similar life history traits with Pinus are likely to show species nonmonophyly using nuclear markers.



Phylogeny and Biogeography of Cercis (Fabaceae): Evidence from Nuclear Ribosomal ITS and Chloroplast ndhF Sequence Data

Calibration of branch lengths with the fossil record suggests that the North American and western Eurasian lineages diverged between 6 and 32 million years ago, which is consistent with both the Madrean-Tethyan hypothesis and dispersion across a North Atlantic land bridge connecting Europe to North America.

Phylogeny and biogeography of the flowering plant genus Styrax (Styracaceae) based on chloroplast DNA restriction sites and DNA sequences of the internal transcribed spacer region.

The monophyly of the group of species from western North America and western Eurasia provides qualified support for the Madrean-Tethyan hypothesis, which posits a Tertiary floristic connection among the semiarid regions in which these taxa occur.

The relationships of the southern African Proteaceae as elucidated by internal transcribed spacer (ITS) DNA sequence data

DNA sequence data of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region is utilised to elucidate relationships of the genera and species of Cape Proteaceae and results indicate that the present generic delimitation between Sorocephalus and Spatalla is spurious, and that Vexatorella is a specialised lineage within Paranomus.

Phylogeny and Biogeography of the Arbutoideae (Ericaceae): Implications for the Madrean-Tethyan Hypothesis

Calibration of branch lengths with the fossil record suggests that a vicariance event occurred among members of the Arbutoideae between western North America and the Mediterranean Basin at the Paleogene/Neogene boundary, consistent with the Madrean-Tethyan hypothesis.

Phylogeny and biogeography of Juglans (Juglandaceae) based on matK and ITS sequence data.

These analyses consistently supported Juglans as a monophyletic group and as the sister group to the genus Pterocarya and the fossil record suggests that the butternuts had evolved by the early Oligocene in North America.

Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences

A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms.

Historical biogeography and the origin of stomatal distributions in Banksia and Dryandra (Proteaceae) based on their cpDNA phylogeny.

A phylogeny for Banksia and Dryandra is derived and the hypothesis that sclerophylly preadapted the plants to xeromorphy is supported in the case of shallow stomatal pits and deepStomatal crypts, but not narrow, needle-like leaves.

Revision of the Mexican and Guatemalan Species of Platanus (Platanaceae)

A discussion of the morphological characters, biogeography, infrageneric phylogeny and speciation of Platanus in North America is presented in light of the greater understanding of the taxa afforded by this study.

Isozyme analysis of intercontinental disjuncts within Styrax (Styracaceae): implications for the Madrean —Tethyan hypothesis

Evidence presented here and in other recent studies casts substantial doubt on the Madrean-Tethyan hypothesis as a general explanation for the presence ofMadrean and Tethyan taxa similar in overall appearance.

Phylogenetics and Biogeography of Alnus (Betulaceae) Inferred from Sequences of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA ITS Region

Long and short branching pattern, sessile winter bud, and 2‐yr phenology are plesiomorphies in Alnus, while 1‐yr floral phenology and fall blooming are derived features.
