This study investigated the relative utility of five different coding and non-coding regions in chloroplast DNA to determine which region was most useful in resolving phylogenetic relationships among species of Cibotium and Diplopterygium. It also incorporated these data into an ongoing biogeographical study that focused on the origins and pathways of dispersal of ferns to Hawaii. Taxon sampling and DNA extraction were conducted on seven species of both Cibotium and Diplopterygium plus…

Phylogenetics of Chinese Dryopteris (Dryopteridaceae) based on the chloroplast rps4-trnS sequence data
TLDR
This work represents the first molecular systematic analyses of Chinese Dryopteris, and the next steps necessary to recognize new subgenera of the genus are proposed.
The tortoise and the hare II: relative utility of 21 noncoding chloroplast DNA sequences for phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
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.

Identification of conserved regions in the plastid genome: implications for DNA barcoding and biological function
TLDR
All oligonucleotides of the sugarcane chloroplast genome that are conserved in one or more of 36 other completed plastid genomes have been identified by computer-assisted sequence comparison, providing the basis for rational design of a DNA barcode for plastids.
Choosing an Approach and an Appropriate Gene for Phylogenetic Analysis
TLDR
This chapter provides a general review of the various molecular techniques currently available to the plant systematist and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of each and the most appropriate approach for studying a given taxonomic level or type of evolutionary question.
