Phylogenetic analysis of Australian species of Veronica (V. section Labiatoides; Plantaginaceae)

Herbaceous species from coastal calcareous sands or limestone habitats do not form a clade with those from shady, moist forest habitats, as formerly believed, but seem to be independently derived from woody species.

Analyzing Reticulate Relationships Using CpDNA and Pyrosequenced ITS1 as Exemplified by Veronica Subgen. Pseudolysimachium (Plantaginaceae)

This work investigates the importance of hybridization in generating morphological variation and blurring species boundaries in V. subgen.

The Complete Chloroplast Genome Sequences of Three Veroniceae Species (Plantaginaceae): Comparative Analysis and Highly Divergent Regions

The complete chloroplast genome sequence information regarding the three VeronICEae will be helpful for elucidating Veroniceae phylogenetic relationships.

Is genome downsizing associated with diversification in polyploid lineages of Veronica

199 new DNA sequences and a nearly threefold increase in genome size estimates in polyploid and diploid Veronica (Plantaginaceae) are contributed to provide a comprehensive baseline to explore the effect of genome size changes.

Complete chloroplast genome of the medicinal herb Veronicastrum axillare (Sieb. et Zucc.) Yamazaki and the phylogenetic relationship analysis within the tribe Veroniceae

The complete chloroplast genome sequence of V. axillare was reported, suggesting a close genetic relationship between the two Veronicastrum species and Phylogenetic analysis indicated a sister relationship between V.Axillare and V. sibiricum.

The phylogenomics of diversification on an island: applying anchored hybrid enrichment to New Zealand Leptospermum scoparium (Myrtaceae)

The analyses suggest that a combination of low and incompatible data signal limits the resolution of relationships among New Zealand populations of L. scoparium, and is consistent with genetic diversity being geographically structured.

Phylogeny of the cycads based on multiple single-copy nuclear genes: congruence of concatenated parsimony, likelihood and species tree inference methods.

A single, well-supported phylogenetic hypothesis of the generic relationships of the Cycadales is presented, and this phylogeny can contribute to an accurate infrafamilial classification of Zamiaceae.

Evolutionary Rates in Veronica L. (Plantaginaceae): Disentangling the Influence of Life History and Breeding System

Evidence is provided that annual life history is more likely to be the responsible factor for higher substitution rates in Veronica than a selfing breeding system, and the generation-time hypothesis is evaluated.



Phylogenetic analysis and differentiation of Veronica subgenus Stenocarpon in the Balkan Peninsula

Nuclear chalcone synthase intron data and AFLP fingerprints and leaf morphological characters used to distinguish the three subspecies of V. saturejoides indicate that the southern taxa are genetically much more diverse than the more northern V. thessalica.

Systematic significance of seed morphology in veronica (plantaginaceae): a phylogenetic perspective.

The results demonstrate that, in many cases, the ultrastucture of the testa can be employed to assess relationships of taxa within the genus, and the character provides additional support for molecular trees.

Veronica: Parallel morphological evolution and phylogeography in the Mediterranean

Cases of parallel evolution have been found in biogeographical patterns among the alpine species of Veroniceae, in which species from European mountains have affinities to those in the Central Asian/Himalayan region whereas al Alpine species from Turkey are probably more recently derived from lowland southwestern Asian taxa.

Evolution of veroniceae: A phylogenetic perspective

Based on comparison with results from the molecular analyses, the rosette habit is inferred to be ancestral in the tribe Veroniceae with two losses and at least two regains and chromosome number was likely to be x = 9 in the ancestor of VeronICEae with other base numbers evolving several times in parallel.

The tortoise and the hare II: relative utility of 21 noncoding chloroplast DNA sequences for phylogenetic analysis.

The results of this study show that a survey using as few as three representative taxa can be predictive of the amount of phylogenetic information offered by a cpDNA region and that rate heterogeneity exists among noncoding cpDNA regions.

Molecular systematics of Descurainia (Brassicaceae) in the Canary Islands: Biogeographic and taxonomic implications

A molecular-based phylogeny of Canarian Descurainia was constructed using DNA sequences from nuclear ribosomal internal transcribed spacer (ITS) and seven non-coding chloroplast regions and chloroplast data suggest that both intra-island adaptive radiation and inter-islands colonization have played a prominent role in the evolution of DesCurainia in the Canary Islands.

Incongruence in Veroniceae (Plantaginaceae): evidence from two plastid and a nuclear ribosomal DNA region.

A molecular phylogeny of Apiaceae tribe Caucalideae and related taxa: Inferences based on ITS sequence data

Phylogenetic relationships among all but one of the 19 remaining genera were inferred from nucleotide sequence variation in the internal transcribed spacer regions of 18S-26S nuclear ribosomal DNA, and three major lineages of equivocal relationship were revealed.

DNA barcoding of a large genus, Aspalathus L. (Fabaceae)

Overall, psbA-trnH, currently a candidate for plant barcoding, was the least discriminatory region in this study.

Chloroplast DNA phylogeny, reticulate evolution, and biogeography of Paeonia (Paeoniaceae).

A refined hypothesis of species phylogeny of section Paeonia was proposed by considering the discordance between the nuclear and cpDNA phylogenies to be results of hybrid speciation followed by inheritance of cpDNA of one parent and fixation of ITS sequences of another parent.
