Previous studies using the nuclear SSU rDNA have indicated that the photosynthetic euglenoids are a monophyletic group; however, some of the genera within the photosynthetic lineage are not monophyletic. To test these results further, evolutionary relationships among the photosynthetic genera were investigated by obtaining partial LSU nuclear rDNA sequences. Taxa from each of the external clades of the SSU rDNA-based phylogeny were chosen to create a combined dataset and to compare the…

PHYLOGENY OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC EUGLENOPHYTES BASED ON COMBINED CHLOROPLAST AND CYTOPLASMIC SSU RDNA SEQUENCE ANALYSIS 1

The combined data set produced several additional well‐supported clades, not encountered before in the analyses of green euglenoids, there are three main well‐defined clades (A, B/C/D, and G) on trees from the combinedData set.

PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES INFERRED FROM PLASTID LSU rDNA SEQUENCES 1

The EuglENA clade formed a monophyletic lineage comprising most species from taxa formerly allocated to the subgenera Calliglena and Euglena, however, within this genus, none of the sub genera was monophyletsic.

PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENOID LORICATE GENERA TRACHELOMONAS AND STROMBOMONAS (EUGLENOPHYTA) INFERRED FROM NUCLEAR SSU AND LSU rDNA 1

The morphological and molecular data supported the retention of Trachelomonas and Strombomonas as separate loricate genera.

PHYLOGENY OF THE EUGLENALES BASED UPON COMBINED SSU AND LSU RDNA SEQUENCE COMPARISONS AND DESCRIPTION OF DISCOPLASTIS GEN. NOV. (EUGLENOPHYTA) 1

This study demonstrated that increased taxon sampling, multiple genes, and combined data sets provided increased support for internal nodes on the euglenoid phylogenetic tree and resolved relationships among the major genera in the photosynthetic eUGlenoid lineage.

MULTIGENE ANALYSES OF PHOTOSYNTHETIC EUGLENOIDS AND NEW FAMILY, PHACACEAE (EUGLENALES) 1

The family Euglenaceae is proposed to be limited to the members of the Euglena clade and a new family, the Phacaceae, to house the genera Phacus, Lepocinclis, and Discoplastis is proposed.

Taxon-rich multigene phylogeny of the photosynthetic euglenoids (Euglenophyceae)

To establish taxonomy and understand phylogenetic relationships among strains and species of the photosynthetic euglenoids, phylogenetic analyses based on a four gene sequence dataset from 343 taxa from 343Taxa were performed.

PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF THE GENUS EUGLENA (EUGLENOPHYCEAE) WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE TYPE SPECIES EUGLENA VIRIDIS 1

Molecular phylogenetic analyses using a small subunit (SSU) and a combined SSU–partial large subunit rDNA data set for members of the genus Euglena showed that strains identified as E. viridis on the basis of morphology are distributed between two separate nonsister clades, demonstrating that E. stellata are cryptic species that can only be distinguished at the molecular level.

Phylogeny and taxonomic revision of plastid-containing euglenophytes based on SSU rDNA sequence comparisons and synapomorphic signatures in the SSU rRNA secondary structure.

Sequence comparisons and a revised classification of the Euglenophyceae were based on 92 new SSU rDNA sequences obtained from strains of Euglena, Astasia, Phacus, Trachelomonas, Colacium, Cryptoglena, Lepocinclis, EUTreptia, Eutreptiella and TetreutrePTia, and one lineage was recognized as the previously neglected genus Monomorphina Mereschkowsky (1877).

Phylogeny of Phagotrophic Euglenids (Euglenozoa) as Inferred from Hsp90 Gene Sequences

Phylogenetic analyses confirmed a closer relationship between kinetoplastids and diplonemids than to euglenids, and supported previous views regarding the branching order among primarily bacteriovorous, primarily eukaryovorous, and photosynthetic eUGlenids.

A MOLECULAR ANALYSIS OF THE EUGLENOPHYTES USING SSU RDNA

Using small subunit (SSU) rDNA data to generate a phylogenetic framework for the genera Euglena, Phacus, Lepocinclis, Astasia, and Khawkinea, the need for a revision in the taxonomy of some of these genera was demonstrated.

A multigene phylogeny of the Gelidiales including nuclear large-subunit rRNA sequence data

The relationships among most gelidialean taxa are well-resolved and well-supported by analyses of the combined data; however, the relationships of Ptilophora and Capreolia remain unclear.

PHYLOGENY OF EUGLENOPHYCEAE BASED ON SMALL SUBUNIT rDNA SEQUENCES: TAXONOMIC IMPLICATIONS 1

Small subunit rDNA sequences of 42 taxa belonging to 10 genera were used to infer phylogenetic relationships among euglenoids and the strong support for the individual clades confirmed the value of using lorica features as taxonomic criteria.

PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS OF SELECTED EUGLENOID GENERA BASED ON MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR DATA 1

This study suggests that the hypothetical ancestor to the Euglenozoa was a phagotroph with two flagella, both containing paraxonemal rods, and its basal bodies contained proximal cartwheels, were connected by a prominent fiber, and were anchored with three asymmetrically arranged flagellar roots.

Phylogenetic analyses of various euglenoid taxa (euglenozoa) based on 18s rdna sequence data

All trees derived from SSU rRNA data strongly supported the monophyletic origin of the Euglenozoa, with kinetoplastids as sister clade to the euglenoids and Petalomonas cantuscygni Cann et Pennick diverging at the base of the monophysletic eUGlenoid lineage.

Phylogenetic position and inter-relationships of the osmotrophic euglenids based on SSU rDNA data, with emphasis on the Rhabdomonadales (Euglenozoa).

The inter-relationship of the three distinct euglenozoan taxa (euglenids, kinetoplastids and diplonemids) could not be convincingly resolved by this study.

Phylogenetic analysis of phagotrophic, photomorphic and osmotrophic euglenoids by using the nuclear 18S rDNA sequence.

Phylogenetic analyses of 35 strains carried out using the SSU rDNA suggest that neither the Euglenales nor the Eutreptiales form a monophyletic lineage, thus questioning currently available classifications.

EVOLUTION OF PHACUS (EUGLENOPHYCEAE) AS INFERRED FROM PELLICLE MORPHOLOGY AND SSU rDNA

The utility of pellicle morphology for inferring phylogenetic relationships of euglenids and establishing apomorphy‐based clade definitions was demonstrated and three robust clades with unambiguous pellicles‐based apomorphies can be recognized within taxa traditionally classified as Phacus.

Character evolution in heterotrophic euglenids

A cladistic analysis of a large morphological data set from heterotrophic euglenids found that Dinema sulcatum held a pivotal position in the phylogenetic tree and possessed many characters that bridged bacteriotrophic taxa with eukaryotrophicTaxa.

Phylogeny of Trichoptera (caddisflies): characterization of signal and noise within multiple datasets.

Trichoptera are holometabolous insects with aquatic larvae that, together with the Lepidoptera, make up the Amphiesmenoptera and are found to be evolving under extremely different rates, with Annulipalpia to be the most basal of the three suborders, with Spicipalpia and IntegripalPia forming a clade.
