Molecular systematics of plants by Pamela S Soltis( Book )

3 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The application of molecular techniques is rapidly transforming the study of plant systematics. The precision they offer enables researchers to classify plants that have not been subject to rigorous classification before and thus allows them to obtain a clearer picture of evolutionary relationships. Plant Molecular Systematics is arranged both conceptually and phylogenetically to accommodate the interests not only of general systematists, but also those of people interested in a particular plant family. The first part discusses molecular sequencing; the second reviews restriction site analysis and the sequencing of mitochondrial DNA. A third section details the analysis of ribosomal DNA and chloroplast DNA. The following section introduces model studies involving well-studied families such as the Onagraceae, Compositae and Leguminosae. The book concludes with a section addressing theoretical topics such as data analysis and the question of morphological vs. molecular data
Phylogeny and evolution of angiosperms by Douglas E Soltis( Book )

14 editions published between 2005 and 2008 in English and Spanish and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Our understanding of angiosperm relationships has changed dramatically during the past ten years. The big picture of angiosperm phylogeny emerged suddenly as a direct result of collaborative molecular analyses, and longstanding views of deep-level relationships required revision. Many major clades of angiosperms did not correspond to the classes, subclasses, and orders of modern classifications. Furthermore, a wealth of recent data coupled with current understanding of phylogeny permits reevaluation of many deep-rooted evolutionary hypotheses. Soltis et al. provide a comprehensive summary of current concepts of angiosperm phylogeny and illustrate the profound impact that this phylogenetic framework has had on concepts of character evolution. In so doing, they acknowledge inadequacies in both current understanding of phylogeny and knowledge of morphological characters, as well as the need for additional study.--Publisher's description
Developmental genetics of the flower( )

10 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume was organized to present recent advances in our comprehension of floral development and to assess how new genomic resources for an expanding set of plant species continue to improve this understanding. The main topics covered in the volume are floral diversity, variations of the classical ABC model of floral development, genetic analysis of reproductive traits, the regulation of flowering time, and the origin and characterization of the floral transcriptome in the most recent common ancestor of all extant angiosperms
The great tree of life by Douglas E Soltis( )

8 editions published between 2018 and 2019 in English and held by 171 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Great Tree of Life is a concise, approachable treatment that surveys the concept of the Tree of Life, including chapters on its historical use and cultural significance. The "Tree of Life" is a metaphor used to describe the relationships between organisms, both living and extinct and including our own species, as first noted by Charles Darwin. The book expounds on this exciting research and covers how to build an evolutionary tree of relationships. It also demonstrates the enormous utility of the Tree of Life in a variety of applications, including drug discovery, curing disease, crop improvement, conservation biology and ecology, responding to the challenges of climate change, and discusses the significant ongoing threats to the Tree of Life due to the demands of a growing human population. Lastly, the book stresses the need to find effective ways to "teach" the importance of the Tree of Life to our children, as well as the general public, both to preserve the Tree and to ensure the survival of our own species. The Great Tree of Life is a key aid to improving our understanding of species relationships and will be of use to researchers, practitioners, academics, and students in biology, ecology, and evolutionary biology and others interested in understanding the challenges to and opportunities for further conserving and restoring the Earth's biodiversity. Provides a single reference describing the properties, history, and utility of the Tree of Life. Introduces phylogenetics and its applications in an approachable manner."--Page 4 of cover
Phylogeny and evolution of the angiosperms by Douglas E Soltis( Book )

3 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in English and held by 133 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Although they are relative latecomers on the evolutionary scene, having emerged only 135‒170 million years ago, angiosperms—or flowering plants—are the most diverse and species-rich group of seed-producing land plants, comprising more than 15,000 genera and over 350,000 species. Not only are they a model group for studying the patterns and processes of evolutionary diversification, they also play major roles in our economy, diet, and courtship rituals, producing our fruits, legumes, and grains, not to mention the flowers in our Valentine’s bouquets. They are also crucial ecologically, dominating most terrestrial and some aquatic landscapes. -- Back cover

Molecular systematics of plants II : DNA sequencing by Douglas E Soltis( Book )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Molecular Systematics of Plants II summarizes recent achievements in plant molecular systematics. Like its predecessor, this completely revised work illustrates the potential of DNA markers for addressing a wide variety of phylogenetic and evolutionary questions. The volume provides guidance in choosing appropriate techniques, as well as appropriate genes for sequencing, for given levels of systematic inquiry. More than a review of techniques and previous work, Molecular Systematics of Plants II provides a stimulus for developing future research in this rapidly evolving field. Molecular Systematics of Plants II is not only written for systematists (faculty, graduate students, and researchers), but also for evolutionary biologists, botanists, and paleobotanists interested in reviewing current theory and practice in plant molecular systematics

Karyotypic variation and pollen stainability in resynthesized allopolyploids Tragopogon miscellus and T. mirus( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Polyploidy has extensively shaped the evolution of plants, but the early stages of polyploidy are still poorly understood. The neoallopolyploid species Tragopogon mirus and T . miscellus are both characterized by widespread karyotypic variation, including frequent aneuploidy and intergenomic translocations. Our study illuminates the origins and early impacts of this variation by addressing two questions: How quickly does karyotypic variation accumulate in Tragopogon allopolyploids following whole-genome duplication (WGD), and how does the fertility of resynthesized Tragopogon allopolyploids evolve shortly after WGD? METHODS: We used genomic in situ hybridization and lactophenol-cotton blue staining to estimate the karyotypic variation and pollen stainability, respectively, of resynthesized T . mirus and T . miscellus during the first five generations after WGD. KEY RESULTS: Widespread karyotypic variation developed quickly in synthetics and resembled that of naturally occurring T . mirus and T . miscellus by generation S4 . Pollen stainability in resynthesized allopolyploids was consistently lower than that of natural T . mirus and T . miscellus, as well as their respective diploid progenitor species. Logistic regression showed that mean pollen stainability increased slightly over four generations in resynthesized T . mirus but remained at equivalent levels in T . miscellus . CONCLUSIONS: Our results clarify some of the changes that occur in T . mirus and T . miscellus immediately following their origin, most notably the rapid onset of karyotypic variation within these species immediately following WGD
The evolutionary history of ferns inferred from 25 low-copy nuclear genes( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract : Premise of the study: Understanding fern (monilophyte) phylogeny and its evolutionary timescale is critical for broad investigations of the evolution of land plants, and for providing the point of comparison necessary for studying the evolution of the fern sister group, seed plants. Molecular phylogenetic investigations have revolutionized our understanding of fern phylogeny, however, to date, these studies have relied almost exclusively on plastid data. Methods: Here we take a curated phylogenomics approach to infer the first broad fern phylogeny from multiple nuclear loci, by combining broad taxon sampling (73 ferns and 12 outgroup species) with focused character sampling (25 loci comprising 35877 bp), along with rigorous alignment, orthology inference and model selection. Key results: Our phylogeny corroborates some earlier inferences and provides novel insights; in particular, we find strong support for Equisetales as sister to the rest of ferns, Marattiales as sister to leptosporangiate ferns, and Dennstaedtiaceae as sister to the eupolypods. Our divergence-time analyses reveal that divergences among the extant fern orders all occurred prior to ∼200 MYA. Finally, our species-tree inferences are congruent with analyses of concatenated data, but generally with lower support. Those cases where species-tree support values are higher than expected involve relationships that have been supported by smaller plastid datasets, suggesting that deep coalescence may be reducing support from the concatenated nuclear data. Conclusions: Our study demonstrates the utility of a curated phylogenomics approach to inferring fern phylogeny, and highlights the need to consider underlying data characteristics, along with data quantity, in phylogenetic studies
