To consider this question, the objective of this research was to investigate the phylogenetic relation among isolates of the genus Colletotrichum, causal agent of GLS in apple and pineapple in southern Brazil, by ITS sequence analysis and comparison of these sequence to others described sequence in the literature.
Other contributions report findings on eastern equine encephalitis virus genomes, the lyssavirus genome, correlations of phylogenetic relation among members of the genus Flavivirus, and the construction of an infectious molecular clone of HTLV-1.
where y is the vector of standardized trait values, rWy is the phylogenetic component (i.e., the phylogenetic relation in the trait), and e is the residual vector that is free of phylogenetic correlation (Cheverud et al.
The study also describes phylogenetic relation among the bacterial inducer species and already reported other species.
The phylogenetic position of the novel taxon in the family Chlamydiaceae thus roughly reflects the phylogenetic relation between the host species, providing evidence for host-bacterium co-evolution in the family Chlamydiaceae.

We describe 2 HDV isolates (dFr2072 and dFr2736) that have robust phylogenetic relation to dFr644 and, therefore, propose an extended classification of the Deltavirus genus to 8 clades.
Having done that, the next step was to establish the phylogenetic relations among the species of Ciconia, using characters of the cranial osteology, of the mentioned group ("in group") and of the taxons mentioned above ("out group"), trying to express the family relationships by using shared derivative characters among their members in the form of a cladogram (sensu WILEY et al., 1991).

Another characteristic of these genes is the fact that they contain a nucleotide replacement pattern that provides statistically reliable information for phylogenetic analyses and thus sufficient information for the study of phylogenetic relations during the early evolution of eukaryotes (Hasegawa, Kishino, & Yano, 1985; Hillis & Dixon, 1996).
