Abstract The phylogenetic position of 74 taxa of Asian Sedoideae (Crassulaceae) was estimated based on analyses of the trnL-trnF intergenic spacer sequence of cpDNA and the ITS region, including the 5.8S rDNA sequence, of nDNA. Our analyses suggest that the subfamily Sedoideae is not monophyletic and the genus Sedum especially is highly paraphyletic. Recent studies based on cpDNA restriction-site variation and the matK region recognized seven clades of “major importance.” In our analyses, four… 

Linnaeus's folly – phylogeny, evolution and classification ofSedum(Crassulaceae) and Crassulaceae subfamily Sempervivoideae

This study presents a broadly sampled and dated molecular phylogeny of Sempervivoideae including 80% of all infrageneric taxa described in Sedum as well as most other genera of the subfamily and believes that combination of all 14 genera currently recognized in tribe Sedeae into Sedum might be the most stable solution of the “Sedum problem”.

Estimation of Phylogeny of Nineteen Sedoideae Species Cultivated in Korea Inferred from Chloroplast DNA Analysis

Using cpDNA sequence analysis, Sedoideae plants cultivated in Korea were successfully discriminated from each other, even at the intraspecific level, and the results were reflective of the morphological and biogeographical characteristics.

hylogenetic relationships between Sedum L . and related genera Crassulaceae ) based on ITS rDNA sequence comparisons yacheslav

The highly polyphyletic nature of Sedum and its relatives corroborated in this study using a large taxon set, calls for re-evaluation of the genus concept in the family Crassulaceae and tributes.

Phylogenetic Relationships and Character Evolution of Rhodiola (Crassulaceae) based on Nuclear Ribosomal ITS and Plastid trnL-F and psbA-trnH Sequences

The phylogenetic relationships within Rhodiola remain poorly understood largely because of difficulties in collecting samples and specimens, but it is suggested that Rhodiola and Pseudosedum form a well-supported clade.

Phylogenetic relationships among members of the subfamily Sedoideae (Crassulaceae) inferred from the ITS region sequences of nuclear rDNA

It was shown that the genus Orostachys was not monophyletic; its type subsection was significantly included into the clade of the genus Hylotelephium and sister relationships were established between clades Aziopsis and Phedimus, based on which they can be recognized as isolated genera.

Phylogenetic relationships among Orostachys subsection Orostachys species (Crassulaceae) based on nuclear and chloroplast DNA data

The data suggest that the current concepts of O. malacophylla, O. maximowiczii, and O. gorovoii are incompatible with the differentiation at the cpDNA level, and a high level of similarity of ITS rDNA sequences between the subsection members suggests their relatively recent and rapid divergence from a common ancestor.

ITS rDNA sequence comparisons resolve phylogenetic relationships in Orostachys subsection Appendiculatae (Crassulaceae)

The first molecular phylogeny of Orostachys subsection Appendiculatae is presented based on a large number of ITS rDNA sequences representing most currently recognized members of the subsection and utilizing secondary structure information.

The Conservation of Chloroplast Genome Structure and Improved Resolution of Infrafamilial Relationships of Crassulaceae

Nine newly sequenced chloroplast genomes are reported, which comprise several key lineages of Crassulaceae and enhance the understanding of the infrafamilial relationships and the conservation of chloroplowlast genomes within CrASSulaceae.



The phylogenetic position of East Asian Sedum species (Crassulaceae) based on chloroplast DNA trnL (UAA)–trnF (GAA) intergenic spacer sequence variation

The overall topology of the phylogeny fully agrees with results based on chloroplast DNA restriction-site variation and support Steven's and co-workers (1995) hypothesis on the distribution of alkaloids in the Crassulaceae which states that the occurrence of alkAloids is restricted to the species of the Acre lineage.

Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of Crassulaceae inferred from matK sequence data.

A southern African origin of the family is suggested, with subsequent dispersal northward into the Mediterranean region and two separate lineages of European Crassulaceae subsequently dispersed to North America and underwent substantial diversification.

Phylogenetics and Evolution of the Macaronesian Clade of Crassulaceae Inferred from Nuclear and Chloroplast Sequence Data

Given this estimate of phylogeny, the Macaronesian clade most likely evolved from herbaceous, continental ancestors; the woody habit evolved once in Aichryson tortuosum and again in the ancestor of the Aeonium clade.

Origin of the Woody Macaronesian Sempervivoideae and the Phylogenetic Position of the East African Species of Aeonium

The extremely close genetic ties among the woody and branched (sub)shrubs indicate that, when compared to the other species of the genus, the wooded, African Aeonium species are not the sister group of the Macaronesian Sempervivoideae and substantiate the view that an ancestor of A. leucoblepharum recently migrated from the Canary Islands to East Africa and Arabia through long distance dispersal.

Angiosperm phylogeny inferred from 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB sequences

A phylogenetic analysis of a combined data set for 560 angiosperms and seven outgroups based on three genes, 18S rDNA, rbcL, and atpB representing a total of 4733 bp is presented, resulting in the most highly resolved and strongly supported topology yet obtained for angiosPerms.

Phylogenetic relationships in the Crassulaceae inferred from chloroplast DNA restriction-site variation.

There is very strong support for a basal division of the Crassulaceae, which separates the monophyletic subfamily Crassuloideae from all other taxa, and four of the six traditionally recognized subfamilies are indicated to be polyphyletic.

Sedum surculosum andS. jaccardianum (Crassulaceae) share a unique 70 bp deletion in the chloroplast DNA trnL (UAA)-trnF (GAA) intergenic spacer

S. surculosum, the systematic position of which has been disputed ever since its discovery, shares a phylogenetically highly significant 70 bp deletion withS.

Molecular evolution of noncoding regions of the chloroplast genome in the Crassulaceae and related species

Universal primers were used for PCR amplification of three noncoding regions of chloroplast DNA in order to study sequence-length variation in the Crassulaceae and in related species and indicated a pattern of relationships that was largely consistent with a previous analysis of cpDNA restriction-site variation.

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.
