A phylogenetic analysis of 589 plastid rbcL gene sequences representing nearly all eudicot families (a total of 308 families; seven photosynthetic and four parasitic families are missing) was performed, and bootstrap re-sampling was used to assess support for clades. Based on these data, the ordinal classification of eudicots is revised following the previous classification of angiosperms by the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group (APG). Putative additional orders are discussed (e.g. Dilleniales…

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.

Phylogeny of the eudicot order Malpighiales: analysis of a recalcitrant clade with sequences of the petD group II intron

For the first time a deep node of the Malpighiales backbone, a clade comprising Achariaceae, Violaceae, Malesherbiaceae, Turneraceae, Passifloraceae, and a Lacistemataceae–Salicaceae lineage received significant statistical support from plastid DNA sequences.

Phylogenetic Studies in the Euasterids II: With Particular Reference to Asterales and Escalloniaceae

Using the recently developed Bayesian approach to phylogenetic reconstruction, in combination with a dataset consisting of the atpB, ndhF and rbcL nucleotide sequences, a resolved and fairly well supported phylogeny of the Euasterids II could be reconstructed.

Angiosperm phylogeny based on matK sequence information.

Combined analyses of matK and other rapidly evolving DNA regions with available multigene data sets have strong potential to enhance resolution and internal support in deep level angiosperms phylogenetics and provide additional insights into angiosperm evolution.

Phylogenetic Relationships in Fagales Based on DNA Sequences from Three Genomes

The results suggest that the combination of different sequences from several species within the same genus representing a terminal taxon has little influence on phylogenetic accuracy and inclusion of taxa with some missing data in combined data sets also does not have a major impact on the topology.

A Phylogenetic Study of the Order Asterales Using One Morphological and Three Molecular Data Sets

Two most parsimonious cladograms are obtained using a data set of 100 characters derived from morphology, anatomy, embryology, chemistry, and karyology, combined with three nucleotide sequence data sets in a phylogenetic analysis of all 12 currently recognized families in the angiosperm order Asterales.

Toward a resolution of Campanulid phylogeny, with special reference to the placement of Dipsacales

These analyses support the monophyly of the four major clades and the relationships among them, andAsterales are inferred to be sister to a clade containing Apiales and Dipsacales, which is consistent with more weakly supported results from previous studies.

Mitochondrial matR sequences help to resolve deep phylogenetic relationships in rosids

Analysis of mitochondrial matR alone identified a novel deep relationship within rosids, the grouping of the COM clade of fabids and malvids, which was not resolved by any previous molecular analyses but recently suggested by floral structural features.



Molecular Phylogenetic Relationships Among Angiosperms: An Overview Based on rbcL and 18S rDNA Sequences

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.

A molecular evaluation of the monophyly of the order Ebenales based upon rbcL sequence data

Molecular support for monophyly of Ebenales and its phylogenetic relationships to other dicot families was investigated using parsimony analysis of nucleotide sequences of the large subunit of

The phylogeny of the Asteridae sensu lato based on chloroplast ndhF gene sequences.

A phylogenetic study of Asteridae sensu lato was conducted based on chloroplast ndhF gene sequences for 116 ingroup and 13 outgroup species, providing much greater resolution and stronger bootstrap support throughout the tree.

Phylogenetics of seed plants : An analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid gene rbcL

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.

Systematic and evolutionary implications of rbcL sequence variation in Rosaceae

RbcL-based phylogenies suggest that chromosome numbers are more reliable indicators of some generic alliances than the more commonly used fruit types and that the subfamily Maloideae may have descended from spiraeoid ancestors and the pome is derived from follicular or capsular fruit types.

Phylogenetic Implications of rbcL Sequence Variation in the Asteraceae

Complete nucleotide sequences of the rbcL gene were obtained for 25 species of Asteraceae representing 15 of the currently recognized tribes and three outgroup families and two major monophyletic clades that correspond to the subfamilies Barnadesioideae, Cichorioideae and Asteroideae were identified in the most parsimonious cladograms.

Phylogeny and provisional classification of the Solanaceae based on chloroplast DNA

A phylogenetic analysis of the Solanaceae based on chloroplast DNA variation is presented, providing the basis for a provisional new infrafamilial classification.

Phylogenetic Relationships within Zygophyllaceae Based on DNA Sequences of three Plastid Regions, with Special Emphasis on Zygophylloideae

Abstract Parsimony analysis of nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene rbcL and non-coding trnL-F region was used to examine phylogenetic relationships of 36 members of Zygophyllaceae, especially of

Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from multiple genes as a tool for comparative biology

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 phylogeny of families related to Celastrales based on rbcL 5' flanking sequences.

The region between the rbcL and atpB chloroplast genes and the first 53 codons of the rBCL gene have been sequenced for 19 species of angiosperms and the order Celastrales is polyphyletic and is divided into two major clades.
