Towards resolving Lamiales relationships: insights from rapidly evolving chloroplast sequences
Confidence about deep nodes of the Lamiales tree is an important step towards understanding the evolutionary diversification of a major clade of flowering plants and the evolution of selected morphological characters such as flower symmetry is discussed.
The phylogeny of Linderniaceae — The new genus Linderniella, and new combinations within Bonnaya, Craterostigma, Lindernia, Micranthemum, Torenia and Vandellia
A plastid trnK/matK sequence dataset is used to get further insights into the relationships within Linderniaceae and the genus Lindernia as accepted to date is shown to be polyphyletic.

Lentibulariaceae significantly exhibit enhanced rates of nucleotide substitution in most of the 130 noncoding regions, and Protein-coding genes across all gene classes show a disproportional elevation of nonsynonymous substitutions, particularly in Utricularia and Genlisea.
Caryophyllales phylogenetics: disentangling Phytolaccaceae and Molluginaceae and description of Microteaceae as a new isolated family
The hitherto unsampled genus Microtea is found with high support in an isolated position as the fourth branch in the caryophyllid clade, and Microteaceae are described as a new family.
Trap diversity and character evolution in carnivorous bladderworts (Utricularia, Lentibulariaceae)
This study comparatively investigated trap biomechanics in 19 Utricularia species to examine correlations between life-forms, trapping mechanisms, and functional-morphological traits, and shows the existence of two functional trap principles and three main trapdoor movement types.
Phylogenetics and character evolution in the carnivorous plant genus Genlisea A. St.-Hil. (Lentibulariaceae).
The new monotypic genus Bardotia (Orobanchaceae) from Madagascar and remarks on the phylogenetic relationships of the African and Madagascan genera Parastriga , Radamaea , Rhamphicarpa and…
The newly described monotypic genus Bardotia, with the new species B. ankaranensis from limestone tsingy in Northern Madagascar, and its differences from Radamaea and Sieversandreas are discussed and a new combination Harveya alectroides is made.
