Resolving and dating the phylogeny of Cornales – Effects of taxon sampling, data partitions, and fossil calibrations

Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 59(1), 123–138.

By: Q. (Jenny) Xiang n, D. Thomas n & Q. Xiang*

author keywords: Cornales; Divergence time; Effects of data partitions and taxa sampling; Fossil calibration; Hydrostachyaceae; Phylogeny relationships; 26S rDNA; rbcL; matK; ndhF; atpB; trnL-F; trnH-K
MeSH headings : Bayes Theorem; Calibration; Chloroplasts / genetics; Cornaceae / classification; Cornaceae / genetics; Data Interpretation, Statistical; Fossils; Genetic Speciation; Likelihood Functions; Models, Genetic; Molecular Sequence Data; Phylogeny; RNA, Ribosomal / genetics; Sequence Analysis, DNA
TL;DR: Reducing sampling density within families and analyzing partitioned data sets from coding and noncoding cpDNA, 26S rDNA, and combined data sets produced congruent estimation of divergence times, but reducing the number and changing positions of calibration points resulted in very different estimations.

2008 journal article

On the Generic Circumscription of Gonolobus (Apocynaceae, Asclepiadoideae): Evidence from Molecules and Morphology

Systematic Botany, 33(2), 403–415.

By: A. Krings n, D. Thomas* & Q. Xiang*

author keywords: delimitation; dorsal anther appendages; Gonolobinae; winged follicles
TL;DR: Evidence from parsimony and Bayesian analyses of chloroplast and nuclear data presented here supports the monophyly of both the subtribe and the genus Gonolobus in a narrow or broad sense. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 journal article

Rates of nucleotide substitution in Cornaceae (Cornales)—Pattern of variation and underlying causal factors

Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution, 49(1), 327–342.

By: Q. Xiang n, J. Thorne n, T. Seo n, W. Zhang n, D. Thomas n & R. Ricklefs*

author keywords: Comus; Cornaceae; Divergence time; Rate of molecular evolution; Rate of morphological evolution; Speciation
MeSH headings : Bayes Theorem; Chloroplasts / genetics; Cornus / anatomy & histology; Cornus / classification; Cornus / genetics; DNA, Chloroplast / genetics; DNA, Plant / genetics; Evolution, Molecular; Fossils; Genes, Plant; Genetic Speciation; Genome, Chloroplast; Models, Genetic; Nucleotides / genetics; Phylogeny; Sequence Analysis, DNA
TL;DR: This study examined the rate and pattern of molecular evolution for five DNA regions over a phylogeny of Cornus, the single genus of Cornaceae, and suggested a possible localized link between species richness and rate of nonsynonymous nucleotide substitution for the combined cpDNA regions.

2006 journal article

Ancestral chloroplast polymorphism and historical secondary contact in a broad hybrid zone of Aesculus (Sapindaceae)

AMERICAN JOURNAL OF BOTANY, 93(3), 377–388.

author keywords: Aesculus; cpDNA inheritance; hybrid zone; phylogeography; Pleistocene; Sapindaceae; secondary contact; southeastern United States
TL;DR: The cpDNA data suggest that the hybrid zone originated through historical local gene flow, yet is maintained by periodic long-distance pollen dispersal, which supports the historical presence of A. pavia in the Piedmont, although they are at present locally extinct. (via Semantic Scholar)

Taxon, 55(1), 9.

By: Q. Xiang n, D. Thomas n, W. Zhang n, S. Manchester* & Z. Murrell*

author keywords: biogeography; Cornus; Cornaceae; ITS; matK; morphology; phylogeny
TL;DR: The phylogeny based on the total evidence tree including fossils supports an origin and early Tertiary diversification of Cornus in Europe and multiple trans-Atlantic migrations between Europe and North America by the early TERTiary. (via Semantic Scholar)
