Infestation Pattern and Population Dynamics of the Tropical Bed Bug, Cimex hemipterus (F.) (Hemiptera: Cimicidae) Based on Novel Microsatellites and mtDNA Markers
The infestation structure and population dynamics of C. hemipterus in the tropics, especially Malaysia and Singapore, are described based on eight novel microsatellites and two mtDNA markers, including cytochrome c oxidase I (COI) and 16S rRNA genes.
Molecular Phylogeny of Philippine Tigerperches (Perciformes: Terapontidae) Based on Mitochondrial Genes
This work presents a novel and scalable approaches that allow for real-time annotation of the H2O2 “spatially distinct from other types of H2Os” found in animals using a simple, inexpensive, and scalable “silent” approach.
Almeidea A. St.-Hil. Belongs to Conchocarpus J.C. Mikan (Galipeinae, Rutaceae): Evidence from Morphological and Molecular Data, with a First Analysis of Subtribe Galipeinae
- BiologyPloS one
A phylogenetic analysis of Almeidea is performed, using a broader sampling of Galipeee and other Neotropical Rutaceae, the first such study focused on this subtribe, and showed Galipeinae as monophyletic, with the species of AlMEidea also monophylets and nested in a clade with a group of species of Conchocarpus, a non-monophyletics group.
A taxonomic reassessment of the Tanacetum aureum (Asteraceae, Anthemideae) species group: insights from morphological and molecular data
A taxonomic reassessment of the Tanacetum aureum (Lam.) Greuter, M.V.Agab. & Wagenitz (Asteraceae, Anthemideae) species group was performed. This group of species is distinguished by herbaceous…
Phylogeny and taxonomic revision of the Planistromellaceae including its coelomycetous anamorphs: contributions towards a monograph of the genus Kellermania
Species representing the core genera of the Planistromellaceae formed a clade and evaluation of its topology revealed that previous morphology-based definitions of genera resulted in an artificial classification system.
Let them fall where they may: congruence analysis in massive phylogenetically messy data sets.
- BiologyMolecular biology and evolution
This work presents a congruence method that accommodates both very large numbers of genes and high degrees of incongruence, and presents an analysis of core genes of prokaryotes, often assumed to have been largely vertically inherited, in which two highly incONGruent classes of genes are identified.
Phylogeny of Chinese Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae) based on chloroplast DNA sequence data (trnL-F and rps4-trnS)
- BiologyJournal of Plant Research
Three subclades resolved within Polystichum sensu stricto (s.s.) clade do not correspond with recent sectional classifications, and it is outlined the issues relevant to a new classification for the genus.
Cryptic speciation and recombination in the fungus Paracoccidioides brasiliensis as revealed by gene genealogies.
- BiologyMolecular biology and evolution
This study provides the first evidence for possible sexual reproduction in P. brasiliensis S1, but does not rule it out in the other two species.
Filogènia, filogeografia i estructura poblacional de peixos marins amb diferents capacitats de dispersió
The molecular data revealed two clearly supported clades within T. tripteronotus, whose divergence largely exceeded that found between other Wsh species, consequently these two groups should be considered two cryptic species diverging 2.75–3.32 Mya along the Pliocene glaciations.

Cladistic analysis in ascomycete systematics: theory and practice
Topics touched upon are: competing systematic methods, monophyly, paraphyly, terminal taxa, character coding, ingroup, outgroup, character polarization, parsimony, character weighting, equally parsimonious trees, problems with tree instability, consensus trees, and classification.
PHYLOGENY OF THE RUBIACEAE AND THE LOGANIACEAE: CONGRUENCE OR CONFLICT BETWEEN MORPHOLOGICAL AND MOLECULAR DATA?
- BiologyAmerican journal of botany
The non-Loganiaceae taxa Cinchona (Rubiaceae), Nerium (Apocynaceae), and Exacum (Gentianaceae) were all found to have their closest relatives within the Loganiaceae indicating that the loganiaceae are paraphyletic and ought to be reclassified.
SKEWNESS AND PERMUTATION
- Computer ScienceCladistics : the international journal of the Willi Hennig Society
The skewness criterion of phylogenetic structure in data is too sensitive to character state frequencies, is not sensitive enough to number of characters, and relies on counts of arbitrarily‐resolved bifurcating trees to give misleading results.
A Concern for Evidence and a Phylogenetic Hypothesis of Relationships among Epicrates (Boidae, Serpentes)
High levels of character congruence were observed among 89 biochemical and morphological synapomorphies scored on 10 species of Epicrates, and the consensus cladogram was consistent with the phylogenetic interpretation attached to the resulting hypothesis, which is a consensus of two equally parsimonious cladograms.
THE LIMITS OF AMINO ACID SEQUENCE DATA IN ANGIOSPERM PHYLOGENETIC RECONSTRUCTION
- BiologyEvolution; international journal of organic evolution
Cladistic analysis of amino acid sequence data, including evaluation of all equally or almost equally parsimonious cladograms, shows that much homoplasy (parallelisms and reversals) is present and that few or no well supported monophyletic groups of families can be demonstrated.
