Abstract. Based on results from a cladistic analysis of molecular characters using parsimony and Bayesian inference, the tribe Selagineae (Scrophulariaceae, sometimes Selaginaceae or Globulariaceae), is found to have arisen within Manuleeae (Scrophulariaceae). The inclusion of Selagineae into Manuleeae is therefore proposed. The result is corroborated by morphological characters, and indicates that the typical Selagineae condition with one ovule per ovary locule has arisen several times within… 

New circumscription of the tribe Limoselleae (Scrophulariaceae) that includes the taxa of the tribe Manuleeae

Cladistic analyses by maximum parsimony and Bayesian inference methods of chloroplast and nuclear sequence data indicate a new position for Limosella (Scrophulariaceae) and the genus Chaenostoma is re-established.

Phylogenetic Relationships within Zaluzianskya (Scrophulariaceae s.s., tribe Manuleeae): Classification Based on DNA Sequences from Multiple Genomes and Implications for Character Evolution and Biogeography

DNA sequence data from the nrDNA ITS regions, rpl16, and trnL-trnF are used to produce the first broad phylogenetic hypotheses for Zaluzianskya, allowing the first tests of the monophyly of the genus and its sections, as well as an examination of character evolution.

Paraphyly of Paederieae, recognition of Putorieae and expansion of Plocama (Rubiaceae-Rubioideae)

This thesis deals with phylogenetic relationships at different taxonomic levels of the order Gentianales, which comprises about 17 200 species, based on parsimony analyses of nucleotide sequence data (DNA) from different regions in the chloroplast genome.

Further disintegration of Scrophulariaceae

A novel, strongly supported, clade of taxa earlier assigned to Scrophulariaceae was found and possibly represents the tribe Lindernieae, diagnosed by geniculate anterior filaments, usually with a basal swelling.

Review of the systematics of Scrophulariaceae s.l. and their current disposition

Seven monophyletic groups, comprised mostly of members of Scrophulariaceae s.l., are recognised as families, which often are not easily diagnosed, but in many cases are more consistent with certain functional traits and geographical patterns.

Systematic position of Oreosolen (tribe Scrophularieae, Scrophulariaceae) based on nuclear and plastid sequences

The phylogenetic relationships between Oreosolen and Scrophularia were inferred based on one nuclear (internal transcribed spacer) and three plastid DNA regions using maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian inference methods, and revealed that Oreoosolen was nested within Scphularia and thus its generic status was not supported.

Phylogenetic relationships among New World Scrophularia L. (Scrophulariaceae): new insights inferred from DNA sequence data

An eastern Asian origin is proposed for the New World taxa of Scrophularia, with evidence for a hybrid origin of the most widespread North American species and for colonization of the Caribbean archipelago, a late Miocene dispersal event from the North American mainland is assumed.

Using molecular phylogenies to test phytogeographical links between East/South Africa-Southern Arabia and the Macaronesian islands-a review, and the case of Vierea and Pulicaria section Vieraeopsis (Asteraceae)

We undertook a phylogenetic analysis of sequences of the internal transcribed spacers (ITS) of the nuclear ribosomal DNA to test the hypothesis that the Canary Island genus Vierea is closely related

Phylogenetic relationships in tribe Buddlejeae (Scrophulariaceae) based on multiple nuclear and plastid markers

Buddlejeae comprise c. 108 species in five commonly accepted genera: Buddleja, Chilianthus, Emorya, Gomphostigma and Nicodemia. Conflicting generic and infrageneric level classifications based on



Relationships of the Buddlejaceae s. 1. Investigated using parsimony jackknife and branch support analysis of chloroplast ndhF and rbcL sequence data

The systematic positions of genera previously assigned to the Buddlejaceae are investigated using Bremer support and parsimony jackknife analyses of cpDNA ndhF and rbcL sequence data to discuss resampling methods such as the jackknife and the dif- ferences between these two methods.

Evolution of fruit characters and dispersal modes in the tropical family Rubiaceae

The distribution of fruit characters suggested that in several lineages animal-dispersed fruits, such as berries and drupes have remained largely unaltered since the time of origination, indicating a difference in ‘phylogenetic plasticity’ between modes of animal and wind dispersal.

Cases in which Parsimony or Compatibility Methods will be Positively Misleading

Parsimony or minimum evolution methods were first introduced into phylogenetic inference by Camin and Sokal (1965), and a number of other parsimony methods have since appeared in the systematic literature and found widespread use in studies of molecular evolution.

Phylogenetic methods come of age: testing hypotheses in an evolutionary context.

The use of molecular phylogenies to examine evolutionary questions has become commonplace with the automation of DNA sequencing and the availability of efficient computer programs to perform

Phylogeny Estimation and Hypothesis Testing Using Maximum Likelihood

The maximum likelihood method is described and how likelihood ratio tests of a variety of biological hypotheses can be formulated and tested using computer simulation to generate the null distribution of the likelihood ratio test statistic is described.

Phylogenetic Tree Construction Using Markov Chain Monte Carlo

A Bayesian method based on Markov chain simulation to study the phylogenetic relationship in a group of DNA sequences that strikes a reasonable balance between the desire to move globally through the space of phylogenies and the need to make computationally feasible moves in areas of high probability.
