Phylogenetic relationships among 40 of the 43 recognized species of Fraxinus L. (Oleaceae) were estimated on the basis of 106 nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences. ITS trees resulting from maximum likelihood (ML), maximum parsimony (MP) and Bayesian inference (BI) are congruent and identify six distinct lineages. These clades allow establishing sections with high molecular and morphological support. The basal resolution generally has low ML bootstrap and MP jackknife support, but the Bayesian… Expand

Systematics and floral evolution in Fraxinus (Oleaceae)
TLDR
Fruit types range from loculicidal capsules (with two locules), woody schizocarps (a dry fruit type that splits in two parts), and samaras to berries and drupes, and most of the species in the family are insectpollinated with petaliferous, fragrant and nectariferous fl owers. Expand
The complex of Diplodia species associated with Fraxinus and some other woody hosts in Italy and Portugal
TLDR
A large collection of Diplodia strains, obtained from ash and other woody hosts showing V-shaped cankers and branch dieback, were identified based on morphological characters and DNA sequence data from ITS and EF1-α loci and showed that the Fraxinus isolates from Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain belong to three distinct species. Expand
Phylogenetics of Olea (Oleaceae) based on plastid and nuclear ribosomal DNA sequences: tertiary climatic shifts and lineage differentiation times.
TLDR
This study indicates the necessity of revising current taxonomic boundaries in Olea and suggests that main lines of evolution were promoted by major Tertiary climatic shifts. Expand
Resolving the Phylogeny of the Olive Family (Oleaceae): Confronting Information from Organellar and Nuclear Genomes
TLDR
This work reconstructed phylogenies of the olive family using 80 plastid coding sequences, 37 mitochondrial genes, the complete nuclear ribosomal cluster and a small multigene family encoding phytochromes of 61 representative species to provide new genomic datasets that will assist the study of the biogeography and taxonomy of the whole Oleaceae. Expand
Ploidy Variation in Fraxinus L. (Oleaceae) of Eastern North America: Genome Size Diversity and Taxonomy in a Suddenly Endangered Genus
TLDR
Results indicate the importance of establishing an accurate taxonomy when undertaking conservation work and suggest Conservation efforts in eastern North American Fraxinus are less likely to conserve the full scope of genetic diversity within the genus if only a few broadly defined species are recognized. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of tribe Forsythieae (Oleaceae) based on nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacers and plastid DNA trnL-F and matK gene sequences
TLDR
Combined sequence data strongly supported the monophyly of Forsythieae and the close relationship between Fontanesia and Jasminum and three Forsythia lineages were suggested. Expand
Hymenoscyphus fraxineus and two new Hymenoscyphus species identified in Korea
TLDR
The findings suggest the diversity of Hymenoscyphus species on Fraxinus sp. Expand
The Phylogeny and Biogeographic History of Ashes (Fraxinus, Oleaceae) Highlight the Roles of Migration and Vicariance in the Diversification of Temperate Trees
TLDR
The cosmopolitan genus Fraxinus, which comprises about 40 species of temperate trees and shrubs occupying various habitats in the Northern Hemisphere, represents a useful model to study speciation in long-lived angiosperms and molecular dating suggested that the initial divergence of the taxonomical sections occurred during the middle and late Eocene and Oligocene periods. Expand
The complete chloroplast genome of Fraxinus chiisanensis (Oleaceae)
TLDR
The chloroplast genomic information can be used to formulate a comprehensive conservation strategy and the phylogenetic position of F. chiisanensis in Oleaceae was closely clustered with Olea, Chionanthus retusus, and Hesperelaea palmeri as sister species. Expand
The complete chloroplast genome of Fraxinus pennsylvanica (Oleaceae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic tree reconstructed by 10 chloroplast genomes reveals that F. pennsylvanica is most related with F. chiisanensis, and the overall AT content of the genome is 37.8%. Expand

Phylogeny and classification of Oleaceae based on rps16 and trnL-F sequence data.
TLDR
The two debated genera Dimetra and Nyctanthes are shown to belong to Oleaceae, sister to the hitherto genus incertae sedis Myxopyrum, and a new classification of the subfamily Jasminoideae is presented. Expand
A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF ARCEUTHOBIUM (VISCACEAE) BASED ON NUCLEAR RIBOSOMAL DNA INTERNAL TRANSCRIBED SPACER SEQUENCES
TLDR
Minimum length trees support the concept of a verticillately branched subgenus Arceuthobium; however, interspecific distances indicate this group is extremely heterogeneous. Expand
Phylogeny and phylogeography of the circumpolar genus Fraxinus (Oleaceae) based on internal transcribed spacer sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA.
TLDR
Phylogeographical analysis indicated that Fraxinus likely originated in North America, with two subsequent events of intercontinental migration from North America to Asia, and homoplasy was observed in the evolution of floral characters. Expand
Infrafamilial classifications and characters in Araliaceae: Insights from the phylogenetic analysis of nuclear (ITS) and plastid (trnL-trnF) sequence data
TLDR
Parsimony and Bayesian-inference analyses suggest that there are three major lineages of Araliaceae, and that these lineages generally correspond with the centers of diversity for the family. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships within the tribe Malveae (Malvaceae, subfamily Malvoideae) as inferred from ITS sequence data.
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships among genera of tribe Malveae (Malvaceae, subfamily Malvoideae) were reconstructed using sequences of the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) region of the 18S-26S nuclear ribosomal repeat to assess the current circumscription of the tribe, monophyly of some of the larger genera, and character evolution within the tribe. Expand
Systematics and biogeography of Klasea (Asteraceae–Cardueae) and a synopsis of the genus
TLDR
A classification of the genus Klasea, traditionally treated as a section in Serratula, is presented here, accommodating the 46 species in ten sections based on nuclear ribosomal DNA external and internal transcribed spacer sequence data and morphology. Expand
Cyto-taxonomy and phylogeny of the oleaceae
TLDR
Although rather easily delimited as a family, the Oleaceae contains a great variety of forms, some of which are stable enough to be easily recognized as species, while others, part icular ly in the genus Fraxinus, are a problem for the taxonomist. Expand
Phylogeny, biogeography, and the evolution of life-history traits in Leucadendron (Proteaceae).
TLDR
Life history traits of anemophily, myrmechochory, and re-sprouting have also originated multiple times, and Dispersal-Vicariance analysis suggests that the genus had an ancestral area in the Karoo Mountain and Southeastern phytogeographic centres of endemism in the southwestern Cape. Expand
MONOPHYLY OF ANEUPLOID ASTRAGALUS (FABACEAE): EVIDENCE FROM NUCLEAR RIBOSOMAL DNA INTERNAL TRANSCRIBED SPACER SEQUENCES
TLDR
The data suggest that the New World aneuploidspecies of Astragalus form a monophyletic but morphologically cryptic group derived from euploid species of Old World (Eurasian) origin, which are consequently paraphyletic. Expand
Characterization of angiosperm nrDNA polymorphism, paralogy, and pseudogenes.
TLDR
It is concluded that a priori determinations of orthology and paralogy of nrDNA sequences should not be made based on the functionality or lack of functionality of those sequences, and the advantages of a tree-based approach to identifying pseudogenes based on comparisons of sequence substitution patterns from putatively conserved regions.
