Taxonomy of tribe Neillieae (Rosaceae): Neillia

  title={Taxonomy of tribe Neillieae (Rosaceae): Neillia},
  author={Sang-Hun Oh},
Neillieae was traditionally recognized as a small tribe in Rosaceae, which consists of Neillia, Stephanan- dra, and Physocarpus. Recently, Stephanandra was merged into Neillia based on molecular phylogenetic analyses, meaning that Neillieae now contains Neillia and Physocarpus. The genus Neillia is distinguished from Physocarpus by ovate to lanceolate leaves with acuminate to caudate apices, racemose or paniculate inflorescences, and a unicarpellate (rarely bicarpellate) gynoecium. Plants of…

Phylogenetic evaluation of pollen and orbicule morphology in Rosaceae tribe Neillieae (subfamily Amygdaloideae)
Palynological results provide strong evidence for the merging of Neillia and Stephanandra, and pollen morphological data supported the recent phylogenetic hypothesis that P. insularis should be a member of Spiraea.
The systematic implications of leaf micromorphological characteristics in the tribe Neillieae (Spiraeoideae, Rosaceae)
The results strongly support previous molecular phylogenetic and palynological hypotheses that Stephanandra and Neillia are a single genus and that Physocarpus insularis should be considered as a member of Spiraea.


Taxonomy of tribe Neillieae (Rosaceae): Physocarpus
A revision of Physocarpus based on the morphological examination of herbarium specimens, including types, and field observation is presented as part of a taxonomic revision of tribe Neillieae.
Molecular phylogenetic systematics and biogeography of tribe Neillieae (Rosaceae) using DNA sequences of cpDNA, rDNA, and LEAFY.
A phylogeny of the tribe Neillieae (Rosaceae), which comprises Neillia, Stephanandra, and Physocarpus, was reconstructed based on nucleotide sequences of several regions of cpDNA, the ITS and ETS
Phylogenetic analysis of PISTILLATA sequences in Neillia (Rosaceae)
Phylogenetic analyses of the I-box region, including the introns, indicated that the species formerly classified in Stephanandra were nested within Neillia, supporting the taxonomic merger of the two genera.
Phylogeny and classification of Rosaceae
Strong support for monophyly of groups corresponding closely to many previously recognized tribes and subfamilies is found, but no previous classification was entirely supported, and relationships among the strongly supported clades were weakly resolved and/or conflicted between some data sets.
Phylogenetic Relationship of Physocarpus insularis (Rosaceae) Endemic on Ulleung Island: Implications for Conservation Biology
Results of this study suggest that P. insularis should be recognized as a distinct taxon in Spiraea and that conservation efforts on Ulleung Island should focus on protecting its natural environment to conserve evolutionary patterns and processes in addition to specific conservation programs for species in peril.
Systematic and evolutionary implications of rbcL sequence variation in Rosaceae
RbcL-based phylogenies suggest that chromosome numbers are more reliable indicators of some generic alliances than the more commonly used fruit types and that the subfamily Maloideae may have descended from spiraeoid ancestors and the pome is derived from follicular or capsular fruit types.
Phylogenetic utility of the second intron of LEAFY in Neillia and Stephanandra (Rosaceae) and implications for the origin of Stephanandra.
Phylogenetic relationships in Rosaceae inferred from chloroplast matK and trnL-trnF nucleotide sequence data
Three main lineages appear to have diverged early in the evolution of the Rosaceae family: 1) Rosoideae sensu stricto, including taxa with a base chromosome number of 7; 2) actinorhizal Rosaceae, a group of taxa that engage in symbiotic nitrogen fixation; and 3) the rest of the family.
Chromosome Number and Karyotype of two Stephanandra Species (Rosaceae)
The chromosome number and karyotype of two Japanese Stephanandra species, S. incisa and S. tanakae, were investigated, which showed that the basic chromosome number of the genus was x=9.
