A phylogenetic analysis of Chenopodiaceae and Amaranthaceae was carried out using sequence variation of the chloroplast gene rbcL. Our sampling included 108 species of these two families along with 29 species of Caryophyllales serving as outgroups. Phylogeny inferences with maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood indicate that the two families form a well‐supported monophyletic clade that is sister to Achatocarpaceae. Despite extensive sampling, we found that the relationship between… Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the Australian Salicornioideae (Chenopodiaceae) based on morphology and nuclear DNA
TLDR
The current tribal classification of the Salicornioideae was not supported in the molecular analysis and three major clades received strong bootstrap support: Microcnemum+Arthrocnemum, Sarcocornia+Salicornia, and the endemic Australian genera. Expand
trnL-F and rpl16 Sequence Data and Dense Taxon Sampling Reveal Monophyly of Unilocular Anthered Gomphrenoideae (Amaranthaceae) and an Improved Picture of Their Internal Relationships
TLDR
Parsimony and Bayesian analyses of trnL-F and rpl16 sequence data show that the subfamily Gomphrenoideae is monophyletic, which represents a large and diverse radiation of the Amaranthaceae in the New World. Expand
Towards a species level tree of the globally diverse genus Chenopodium (Chenopodiaceae).
TLDR
The tribe Dysphanieae with three genera Dysphania, Teloxys and Suckleya is now shown to form one of the early branches in the tree of Chenopodioideae, and the tribe Spinacieae is recognized to include Spinacia, several species of Chenipodium, andthe genera Monolepis and Scleroblitum. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Atripliceae (Chenopodioideae, Chenopodiaceae): Implications for systematics, biogeography, flower and fruit evolution, and the origin of C4 photosynthesis.
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY Atripliceae (Chenopodiaceae), including Atriplex (300 spp.) as the largest genus of the family, are an ecologically important group of steppes and semidesertsExpand
Phylogeny of Tidestromia (Amaranthaceae, Gomphrenoideae) Based on Morphology
TLDR
Traditional morphological evidence is important for circumscribing the genus Tidestromia, but shows limited utility for resolving species groups within this genus. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships in the Salicornioideae / Suaedoideae / Salsoloideae s.l. (Chenopodiaceae) Clade and a Clarification of the Phylogenetic Position of Bienertia and Alexandra Using Multiple DNA Sequence Datasets
TLDR
This study focused on the relationships of the main lineages within this clade with an emphasis on the placement of the single cell functioning C4 genus Bienertia using maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian inference phylogenetic analyses of the nuclear ribosomal ITS and five chloroplast DNA regions. Expand
Fruit and Seed Anatomy of Chenopodium and Related Genera (Chenopodioideae, Chenopodiaceae/Amaranthaceae): Implications for Evolution and Taxonomy
A comparative carpological study of 96 species of all clades formerly considered as the tribe Chenopodieae has been conducted for the first time. The results show important differences in theExpand
Phylogeny of the Australian Camphorosmeae (Chenopodiaceae) and the Taxonomic Significance of the Fruiting Perianth
TLDR
Phylogenetic hypotheses inferred from molecular data do not support the current taxonomy of Camphorosmeae in Australia, and Neobassia, Threlkeldia, Osteocarpum, and Enchylaena should be subsumed into the species‐rich genera Sclerolaena and Maireana. Expand
Molecular phylogenetic data and seed coat anatomy resolve the generic position of some critical Chenopodioideae (Chenopodiaceae – Amaranthaceae) with reduced perianth segments
TLDR
The phylogenetic results, as well as presence of the stalactites in the outer cell walls of the testa and lack of the rosulate leaves, confirm the distinctive nature of Monolepisspathulata from all Blitum and, therefore, the recent combination Blitumaspathulatum cannot be accepted. Expand
Phylogeny of Salicornioideae (Chenopodiaceae): diversification, biogeography, and evolutionary trends in leaf and flower morphology
TLDR
A high intercontinental dispersability can be observed in Salicomioideae in particular in the Salicornia/Sarcocornia lineage with multiple colonization events in America, Australia and South Africa linked to the global aridification during the Oligocene, Late Miocene and Pliocene. Expand

Phylogenetic analysis of tribe Salsoleae (Chenopodiaceae) based on ribosomal ITS sequences: implications for the evolution of photosynthesis types.
TLDR
Reconstructed phylogeny of representative species of tribe Salsoleae of subfamily Salsoloideae of angiosperm family Chenopodiaceae indicates separate NAD-ME and NADP-ME lineages and suggests two reversions to C(3) photosynthesis. Expand
Relationships in the Caryophyllales as suggested by phylogenetic analyses of partial chloroplast DNA ORF2280 homolog sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships within the angiosperm order Caryophyllales were investigated by comparative sequencing of two portions of the highly conserved inverted repeat coinciding with the region occupied by ORF2280 in Nicotiana, the largest gene in the plastid genomes of most land plants. Expand
Phylogeny of the Caryophyllales - gene sequence data
TLDR
The Phytolaccaceae are not monophyletic, and the Caryophyllaceae and Mollugo are the only taxa examined that do not produce betalains but they are neither closely allied nor basal to other elements of the order. Expand
Floral morphology and taxonomic relations among the genera of Amaranthaceae in the New World and the Hawaiian Islands
TLDR
It is suggested that the type of staminal tubes found in Pseudogomphrena and Froelichia can be derived from that in Alternanthera and froelichiella by reduction of filament length and a fusion of pseudostaminodia with the filaments. Expand
An integrated molecular and morphological study of the subfamily Suaedoideae Ulbr. (Chenopodiaceae)
TLDR
The molecular results confirm that C4 photosynthesis has evolved independently four times in the subfamily Suaedoideae, and a reassessment of morphological and anatomical characters on the background of the molecular trees resulted in the recognition of pistil morphology and leaf type as key characters. Expand
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.

Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences
TLDR
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. Expand
Photosynthetic pathways inChenopodiaceae from Africa, Asia and Europe with their ecological, phytogeographical and taxonomical importance
TLDR
Close taxonomic relationships between photosynthetic pathways and infrageneric classification in genera with both types of C3 and C4, like Atriplex andSuaeda are found. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of the grass subfamily Panicoideae (Poaceae) shows multiple origins of C4 photosynthesis.
TLDR
Based on this sample of species, it is inferred that C(4) photosynthesis has evolved independently several times, although a single origin with multiple reversals and several reacquisitions is only slightly less parsimonious. Expand
A phylogenetic analysis of Zygophyllaceae R.Br. based on morphological, anatomical and rbcL DNA sequence data
TLDR
A combined analysis of molecular and non-molecular data was conducted, and recognition of Peganaceae and Nitrariaceae is recommended, as is a recircumscription of Zygophyllaceae s.s. to comprise five subfamilies. Expand
