Amino acid sequence data are available for ribulose biphosphate carboxylase, plastocyanin, cytochrome c, and ferredoxin for a number of angiosperm families. Cladistic analysis of the 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. In one analysis of nine angiosperm families and 40 variable amino acid… 

Phylogenetics of seed plants : An analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid gene rbcL

Two exploratory parsimony analyses of DNA sequences from 475 and 499 species of seed plants, respectively, representing all major taxonomic groups indicate that rbcL sequence variation contains historical evidence appropriate for phylogenetic analysis at this taxonomic level of sampling.

Phylogenetic analyses of Polemoniaceae using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene matK

The family as a whole was monophyletic with no support for the segregate family Cobaeaceae, and several well supported groups allowed us to test hypotheses of relationship within Polemoniaceae.

PHYLOGENETIC UTILITY OF rbc S SEQUENCES: AN EXAMPLE FROM ANTITHAMNION AND RELATED GENERA (CERAMIACEAE, RHODOPHYTA)

In the pairwise distance comparison of sequence variation, Ceramium showed the greatest genetic distances among genera examined in the study, and all phylogenetic trees generated by the maximum parsimony, neighbor joining, and maximum likelihood were completely congruent in topology with high confidence.

Phylogeny of Cobaea (Polemoniaceae) based on sequence data from the ITS region of nuclear ribosomal DNA

The phylogenetic relationships of 16 of the 18 species of the neotropical genus Cobaea were investigated using sequences of the ITS1 and ITS2 regions of nuclear ribosomal DNA, suggesting that two of the three sections of Cobaea are not mono- phyletic; the third is monotypic.

Analysis of sequence data for 555 bp of the mitochondrial gene cytochrome b in plethodontid salamanders supports the monopoly of the supergenera Hydromantes and Batrachoseps and of a sister group relationship of Batracheps and the supergenus Bolitoglossa.

Phylogenetic affinities of Datiscaceae based on an analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid rbcL gene

The results do not support the monophyly of Datiscaceae and suggest that a previous separation of the group at the family level may be warranted, but analyses with smaller data sets suggest affinities with higher Hamamelidae, among which are several actinorhizal groups.

Phylogenetic Studies Using Protein Sequences Within the Order Myrtales

The families that comprise the Myrtales may be favorable subjects for a study in which a comparison is to be made between phylogenies derived from morphological, anatomical, and micromolecular characteristics and from an independent approach such as the computerized analyses of macromole molecular characteristics.

It is concluded that distribution of Nicotiana is most likely due to dispersal, and this agrees with an early Cretaceous origin of the angiosperms.

Amino acid sequence versus morphological data and the interordinal relationships of mammals.

The consistency index--the number of character states less the number of characters in a data set, divided by the total number of changes in the character states on a cladogram--was used to examine the relative resolving powers of recently published morphological and molecular-sequence data.

MAJOR CLADES OF THE ANGIOSPERMS

A data matrix for a sample of the angiosperms with 61 characters for 49 taxa, mostly magnoliifloran and related families, is presented, illustrative of the great homoplasy in the available character information, and of how little actually is known about fundamental angiosperm interrelationships or phylogeny.

From the phylogenetic tree there is no evidence for primitiveness of Magnoliaceae, though it is not precluded, and uncertainty in the 14-family tree is pointed out.

Higher plant phylogenetic trees were constructed from the amino acid sequences of cytochrome c from fifteen plants using the ‘ancestral sequence’ and ‘flexible numerical’ methods to compare with existing phylogenies based mainly on morphological characters.
