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… 
A nuclear gene for higher level phylogenetics: phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase tracks mesozoic-age divergences within Lepidoptera (Insecta).
TLDR
The utility of PEPCK for phylogenetics is demonstrated over a time span for which few other suitable genes are currently available.
Phylogenetics of seed plants : An analysis of nucleotide sequences from the plastid gene rbcL
TLDR
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 relationships in Selaginellaceae based on RBCL sequences.
TLDR
A phylogenetic framework is developed for the clubmoss family Selaginellaceae based on maximum parsimony analyses of molecular data that provides support for monophyly of subgenera Selaginella and Tetragonostachys and indicates a large number of new groupings not previously recognized on morphological grounds.
Evaluation of atpB nucleotide sequences for phylogenetic studies of ferns and other pteridophytes.

TLDR
The demonstrated utility of atpB suggests that sequences from this gene should play a role in phylogenetic analyses that incorporate data from chloroplast genes, nuclear genes, morphology, and fossil data.
Evolution and phylogenetic utility of the period gene in Lepidoptera.
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of period strongly supported groupings at the family level and below, and little, if any, signal was apparent regarding relationships among superfamilies.
The phylogenetic relationships of flies in the superfamily Empidoidea (Insecta: Diptera).
TLDR
A molecular phylogenetic study of the Empidoidea, a diverse group of 10,000 species of true flies, to reconstruct a taxonomically complete and robustly supported phylogeny for the group and to use this information to assess several competing classifications for the clade.
Phylogenetic analyses of Polemoniaceae using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene matK
TLDR
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)
TLDR
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
TLDR
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.
Phylogenetic analysis and reconfiguration of genera in the cestode order Diphyllidea.
TLDR
The generic boundaries of the Diphyllidea are reassessed based on parsimony and likelihood phylogenetic analyses of 28S rDNA, COI, and COI sequence data for 31 species representing morphological variation across the order and a number of well-supported clades are yielded that are congruent with unique morphological features mandating generic revision of the order.

Phylogenetic Studies Using Protein Sequences Within the Order Myrtales
TLDR
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.
The Study of Plant Phylogeny Using Amino Acid Sequences of Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase. IV. Proteaceae and Fagaceae and the Rate of Evolution of the Small Subunit
TLDR
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.
TLDR
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.

  • 1985
TLDR
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.
The study of plant phylogeny using amino acid sequences of Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase. V. Magnoliaceae, Polygonaceae and the concept of primitiveness
TLDR
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.
The study of plant phylogeny using amino acid sequences of Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase. II. The analysis of small subunit data to form phylognetic trees.
TLDR
The first 40 amino acid sequences of the small subunit of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase are given for 24 angiosperm species, three from each of eight families chosen because cytochrome c and plastocyanin sequences are already available to yield minimal phylogenetic Steiner trees.
The study of plant phylogeny using amino acid sequences of Ribulose-1,5-Bisphosphate Carboxylase. III. Addition of Malvaceae and Ranunculaceae to the phylogenetic tree
The N-terminal sequences (40 amino acids) are given for the small subunit (SSU) of ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase from three species of Ranunculaceae and three species of Malvaceae. Methods are
Relationships between the partial amino acid sequences of plastocyanin from members of ten families of flowering plants
TLDR
Partial amino acid sequences from 40 members of 10 families of flowering plants were analysed using a compatibility method based upon the suggestions of numerical taxonomists and the relationships suggested by the data are discussed with reference to the plant cytochrome- c data set.
A phylogeny of higher plants based on the amino acid sequences of cytochrome c and its biological implications
TLDR
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.
