  1. 1. On Estimating Topology and Divergence Times in Phylogenetics

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Avdelningen för matematisk statistik

    Author : Bodil Svennblad; Allan Gut; Tom Britton; Thore Egeland; [2008]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Mathematical statistics; Phylogenetics; Divergence Time; Likelihood based methods; Non-informative prior; bootstrap support; Matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : This PhD thesis consists of an introduction and five papers, dealing with statistical methods in phylogenetics.A phylogenetic tree describes the evolutionary relationships among species assuming that they share a common ancestor and that evolution takes place in a tree like manner.

  2. 2. Molecular Phylogenetics of Mammals

    University dissertation from Department of Cell and Organism Biology, Lund University

    Author : Morgan Kullberg; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Genetics; EST; divergence times; phylogenomics; phylogenetic reconstruction; Mammals; Eutheria; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik;

    Abstract : In this thesis, the phylogenetic relationships of the Mammalia have been studied at various levels. Different sources of genetic information have been evaluated and used as phylogenetic markers. These include the well-known mitochondrial genome, cDNA from housekeeping genes and expressed sequence tags from nuclear genes. READ MORE

  3. 3. Systematics of Eucoilini Exploring the diversity of a poorly known group of Cynipoid parasitic wasps

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mattias Forshage; Fredrik Ronquist; Göran Nordlander; John Heraty; [2009]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Eucoila; Trybliographa; Eucoilini; Eucoilinae; Figitidae; Cynipoidea; Hymenoptera; phylogenetics; diagnostics; classification; taxonomy; systematic revision; morphology; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Systematics and phylogenetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Systematik och fylogeni; Entomology; entomologi; systematisk zoologi; Systematic Zoology;

    Abstract : Many animal species are still undiscovered, even in Sweden. This thesis deals with the wasps of the subfamily Eucoilinae (of Figitidae, Cynipoidea), a poorly known group of small parasitoids of Dipteran flies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Taxonomy and Reticulate Phylogeny of Heliosperma and Related Genera (Sileneae, Caryophyllaceae)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Universitetsbiblioteket

    Author : Božo Frajman; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Sileneae; Silene; Heliosperma; Atocion; Viscaria; taxonomy; phylogenetics; relative dating; reticulate evolution; chloroplast capture; homoploid hybridisation; BEAST; r8s; PATHd8; Prometheus; RPA2; RPB2; RPD2a; RPD2b; Balkan Peninsula; endemics; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Systematics and phylogenetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Systematik och fylogeni;

    Abstract : Heliosperma (nom. cons prop.) comprises 15—20 taxa, most of them endemic to the Balkan Peninsula. DNA sequences from the chloroplast (rps16 intron, psbE-petG spacer) and the nuclear genome (ITS and four putatively unlinked RNA polymerase genes) are used to elucidate phylogenetic relationships within Heliosperma, and its position within Sileneae.

  5. 5. Evolution and biodiversity of the Ixoroideae (Rubiaceae)

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Botany, Stockholm University

    Author : Kent Kainulainen; Birgitta Bremer; Sylvain Razafimandimbison; Torsten Eriksson; Sandra Knapp; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Alberteae; character evolution; classification; Condamineeae; fruit evolution; Ixoroideae; phylogenetics; pollen presentation; Rubiaceae; systematics; taxonomy; NATURAL SCIENCES Biology Organism biology Systematics and phylogenetics; NATURVETENSKAP Biologi Organismbiologi Systematik och fylogeni; Plant Systematics; växtsystematik;

    Abstract : The phylogenetic relationships within subfamily Ixoroideae of the coffee family are investigated by phylogenetic reconstruction of molecular data, including regions of the chloroplast DNA (matK, ndhF, rbcL, rps16, trnH-psbA, trnS-G, and trnT-F), and the nuclear ribosomal DNA (ITS). The evolution of morphological characters within the group are inferred, with focus on characters used in classification. READ MORE
