Note: supports broader definition of Citrus, to include Fortunella, Microcitrus, and Poncirus, because of placement of Citrus medica, the type of Citrus, in their analysis in a position isolated from other Citrus and together with these other genera

Note: data support movement of Murraya sensu stricto and Merrillia from Clauseneae to Citreae; enlargement of Citrus to include Clymenia, Eremocitrus, Microcitrus, Oxanthera, Fortunella and Poncirus; and monophyly of Aurantioideae

Note: especially for recognition and composition of the subfamily Spathelioideae and isolated position of Ruta with respect to other Rutoideae

  8. Morton, C. M. et al. 2003. Phylogenetic relationships of the Aurantioideae inferred from chloroplast DNA sequence data. Amer. J. Bot. 90:1463-1469. Note: data support movement of Murraya sensu stricto and Merrillia from Clauseneae to Citreae and monophyly of Aurantioideae

Note: supports merging of Rutoideae and Toddalioideae, but also indicates isolated position of Ruta with respect to other Rutoideae

Syst. Evol. 223:15-27. Note: data supports inclusion of Flindersia in Rutaceae, monophyly of Aurantioideae, and isolated position of Ruta with respect to other Rutoideae
  11. Stace, H. M. et al. 1993. Cytoevolutionary patterns in Rutaceae. Pl. Syst. Evol. 187:1-28. Note: composition of Boronieae and Rutinae [the close relatives of Ruta, which comprise the current Rutioideae]
  12. Trinder-Smith, T. H. et al. 2007. Plastid DNA sequences reveal generic paraphyly within Diosmeae (Rutoideae, Rutaceae). Syst. Bot. 32:847-855. Note: supports monophyly of tribe Diosmeae
