Phylogenetic analysis of the genus Hexachlamys (Myrtaceae) based on plastid and nuclear DNA sequences and their taxonomic implications

A molecular phylogenetic analysis using plastid and nuclear data in order to check the inclusion of Hexachlamys in Eugenia revealed the non-monophyly of Hexchlamys, in agreement with previous morphological revisions.

Application of DNA barcodes in Hedyotis L. (Spermacoceae, Rubiaceae)

ITS, or a combination of ITS and petD, as the standard DNA barcode in Hedyotis, but acknowledge that there are no shared alleles between distinct species for matK and rbcL combined.

Phylogeny of Anthospermeae of the Coffee Family Inferred Using Clock and Nonclock Models

A revised subtribal classification of Anthospermeae is proposed, including a new subtribe, the monogeneric Carpacocinae, and the relaxed clock model was consistently favored over the nonclock and strict clock models for all data sets, but the use of the different models had little impact on phylogenetic results.

Multi-loci phylogeny and morphological evidence support the recognition of Januaria (Spermacoceae, Rubiaceae), a new monospecific genus endemic to the North of Minas Gerais (Brazil)

The molecular position and morphological features support Januaria as a new genus of Rubiaceae, with Mitracarpus as sister group, from which it differs principally in calyx morphology, corolla shape, and fruit dehiscence.

Molecular systematics of tribe Rubieae (Rubiaceae): Evolution of major clades, development of leaf–like whorls, and biogeography

A molecular phylogeny of the Rubieae, based on three chloroplast regions from 126 Old and New World taxa, is estimated using parsimony and Bayesian analyses, confirming previous studies that identified seven major clades with no resolution between and within clades.

Chasing the hare - Evaluating the phylogenetic utility of a nuclear single copy gene region at and below species level within the species rich group Peperomia (Piperaceae)

This study is the first to apply genomic sequence of one of these low copy genes, agt1, as a phylogenetic marker for species-level phylogenetics, and shows that the nuclear marker agt 1, and in particular the agT1 introns, provide a significantly increased phylogenetic signal compared to chloroplast markers commonly used for low level phylogenetics.

Phylogeny of Hedyotis L. (Rubiaceae Spermacoceae) : Redefining a complex Asian-Pacific assemblage

Bayesian phylogenetic analyses of Hedyotis are presented using plastid and nuclear sequence data to resolve monophyletic lineages, to test former taxonomic hypotheses, and to revise the taxa within a well-supported evolutionary framework.

The petD group II intron as a species level marker: utility for tree inference and species identification in the diverse genus Campanula (Campanulaceae)

Considering the ease of amplification and sequencing, and its high information content, the petD intron appears to be a good candidate in a two-tailed approach integrating molecular phylogenetics and species identification in the needed sampling of all core Campanuloideae species.

A supermatrix approach provides a comprehensive genus‐level phylogeny for Gentianales

This work reconstructed the genus‐level phylogeny of Gentianales based on the supermatrix of eight plastid markers and showed support for the sister relationship between Loganiaceae and Apocynaceae and confirmed the monophyly of Perplocoideae and the relationships among Baisseeae’+ (Secamonoideae +’�Asclepiadoideae).

Inferring phylogeny at low taxonomic levels: utility of rapidly evolving cpDNA and nuclear ITS loci.

Results indicated that in preliminary studies, sampling strategy should include at least four exemplar taxa, and no single locus emerged as the best in all lineages for any of these measures of utility.

Phylogeny and classification of the subfamily Rubioideae (Rubiaceae)

P phylogenetic analyses of the subfamily Rubioideae (Rubiaceae) based on three different pieces of chloroplast DNA, the protein coding rbcL gene, the spacer sequence betweenatpB andrbcL, and the recently published rps16 intron data are performed.

The tortoise and the hare II: relative utility of 21 noncoding chloroplast DNA sequences for phylogenetic analysis.

The results of this study show that a survey using as few as three representative taxa can be predictive of the amount of phylogenetic information offered by a cpDNA region and that rate heterogeneity exists among noncoding cpDNA regions.

The use of chloroplast DNA to resolve plant phylogenies: noncoding versus rbcL sequences.

P pairwise comparisons among dicots and monocots for rbcL and two noncoding sequences of cpDNA show that these regions evolve faster (more than three times faster, on average) than rBCL, and that the trnL intron evolves at a rate that is the same as that of the intergenic spacer.

Phylogenetic utility of the internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA in plants: an example from the compositae.

Phylogeny of the Herbaceous Tribe Spermacoceae (Rubiaceae) Based on Plastid DNA Data1

This study is the first to address phylogenetic relationships within Spermacoceae from a tribal perspective and provides a phylogenetic hypothesis with broad sampling across the major lineages of Spermcoceae that can be used to guide future species-level and generic studies.

Ribosomal ITS sequences and plant phylogenetic inference.

Molecular systematics of the Catesbaeeae-Chiococceae complex (Rubiaceae): flower and fruit evolution and biogeographic implications.

A more detailed examination of the generic relationships within the Catesbaeeae-Chiococceae complex using two data sets, the nuclear ribosomal ITS regions and the trnL-F chloroplast intron and spacer lends further support to previous hypotheses that the CCC is monophyletic and sister to Strumpfia maritima.

Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Erithalis (Rubiaceae), an endemic of the Caribbean Basin

DNA sequences of chloroplast (trnF-trnL) and nuclear non-coding spacers (ITS and ETS) indicate that Erithalis is monophyletic, and analyses of the combined data revealed two weakly supported clades: one composed of E. fruticosa and E. nk;harrisii, and a sister clade of the remaining species.
