Biebersteiniaceae comprise a single genus with four species of perennial herbs occurring from central Asia to Greece. A previous molecular phylogenetic study placed one of the species in an isolated position in Sapindales, while morphological studies had placed Biebersteinia in or near Geraniaceae, albeit doubtfully. We tested the monophyly and placement of the family with data from the chloroplast genes rbcL and atpB obtained for all four species, other major clades of Sapindales and outgroups… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Embryology of Biebersteinia (Biebersteiniaceae, Sapindales): characteristics and comparisons with related families
TLDR
The embryological features of Biebersteinia are reported and embryological corroboration for the molecular sapindalean affinities of the genus are provided and Biebersteiniaceae appear to represent an early divergent lineage of Sapindales.
Phylogeny and biogeography of Spathelioideae (Rutaceae)
TLDR
The results of this thesis show that Spathelioideae are a monophyletic sister clade to the Rutaceae family, a group of seven small Sapindalean genera with remarkable morphological diversity.
Biogeography of cedrela (meliaceae, sapindales) in central and South america.
TLDR
The history of the neotropical Meliaceae genus Cedrela, the sister clade of which today is restricted to tropical Asia, is inferred, suggesting an origin in dry forest under seasonal climates, fitting with Miocene and Pliocene CedrelA fossils from deciduous forests.
Complete plastome sequencing from Toona (Meliaceae) and phylogenomic analyses within Sapindales
TLDR
Phylogenomic analysis of Sapindales recovered a mostly strongly supported phylogeny of SapIndales, including most of the backbone relationships, with some improvements compared to previous targeted‐gene analyses.
Fruits of Koelreuteria (Sapindaceae) from the Cenozoic throughout the northern hemisphere: their ecological, evolutionary, and biogeographic implications.
TLDR
Reliable fossil records of capsules and ring-porous wood indicate that Koelreuteria may have originated in North Pacific-Rim area of the northern hemisphere by the early Eocene, representing an early temperate lineage in Sapindaceae adapted for wind dispersal.
Genetic diversity and geographic structure in Aglaia elaeagnoidea (Meliaceae, Sapindales), a morphologically complex tree species, near the two extremes of its distribution
TLDR
It is suggested that Australia has been colonized only recently by A. elaeagnoidea and other species within the genus (Miocene/Pliocene boundary to Pliocene) and the name Aglaia roxburghiana could be reinstated for specimens from the western end.
Major Clades of Australasian Rutoideae (Rutaceae) Based on rbcL and atpB Sequences
TLDR
This comprehensive molecular phylogeny of the Australasian Rutoideae gives a broad overview of the group’s evolutionary and biogeographic history and provides a basis for taxonomic revision and a necessary framework for more focused studies of genera and species.
Embryology of Harrisonia (Cneoroideae, Rutaceae): a comparison with related genera and families
TLDR
Embryological features of Harrisonia are reported based on published and newly obtained data and morphological corroboration for the molecular affinities of the genus and Cneoroideae is provided and it is shown that Harrisonia fits within Cneroideae through possessing campylotropous seeds with a multi-cell-layered endotesta.

Simaroubaceae, an artificial construct: evidence from rbcL sequence variation
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of rbcL sequence data of representatives of all subfamilies indicate that Simaroubaceae sensu lato is polyphyletic, and support for the affinities suggested here is also evident in nonmolecular data sources: wood anatomy, pericarp structure, pollen, and phytochemistry.
Phylogeny and biogeography of Morinaceae (Dipsacales) based on nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences
TLDR
Dpersal-vicariance analyses support the view that Valerina radiated initially within Asia, with subsequent movement into Europe in Morinaceae, Dipsacaceae and Valerianaceae, and into the New World in ValerIANaceae.
Molecular phylogenetics of Meliaceae (Sapindales) based on nuclear and plastid DNA sequences.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of Meliaceae, including representatives of all four currently recognized subfamilies and all but two tribes, indicate a close relationship between Aglaieae and Guareeae and a possible monophyletic origin of Cedreleae of Swietenioideae.
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.
Dipteronia (Sapindaceae) from the Tertiary of North America and implications for the phytogeographic history of the Aceroideae.
TLDR
The fossil record of Dipteronia, the sister genus of Acer, is reviewed based on diagnostic winged fruits from the Tertiary of western North America, and it is suggested that the tricarpellate condition may be plesiomorphic for dipteronia and perhaps Aceroideae.
Phytogeography and Fossil History of Ailanthus (Simaroubaceae)
TLDR
The stratigraphic and geographic records of Ailanthus favor a western North American or eastern Asian origin by the Early Eocene and subsequent diversification in Europe, however, there is no fossil evidence to explain the directionality and timing of the dispersal between the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.
PHYLOGENY AND DISJUNCTION IN ROSCOEA ( ZINGIBERACEAE )
TLDR
A phylogenetic study of Roscoea was undertaken using sequence data from the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) of the nuclear ribosomal DNA (nrDNA) to suggest thatRoscoea is monophyletic with the genus Cautleya as sister group.
Phylogenetic relationships of Biebersteinia Stephan (Geraniaceae) inferred from rbcL and atpB sequence comparisons
TLDR
B Biebersteinia is on a long branch on its own which, given the particular combination of apomorphic morphological characters, justifies familial status and indicates strong support for a position nested within Sapindales.
Phylogenetic relationships of Rutaceae: a cladistic analysis of the subfamilies using evidence from RBC and ATP sequence variation.
TLDR
Correlation of the molecular phylogenies with biochemical data indicates that chemotaxonomic information is more reliable than fruit type as an indicator of familial and subfamilial circumscriptions.
