A new subfamily classification of the leguminosae based on a taxonomically comprehensive phylogeny
TLDR
The classification of the legume family proposed here addresses the long-known non-monophyly of the traditionally recognised subfamily Caesalpinioideae, by recognising six robustly supported monophyletic subfamilies and reflects the phylogenetic structure that is consistently resolved.
Revisiting the phylogeny of papilionoid legumes: New insights from comprehensively sampled early-branching lineages.
TLDR
The well-resolved phylogeny of the earliest-branching papilionoids generated in this study will greatly facilitate the efforts to redefine and stabilize the classification of this legume subfamily.
Reconstructing the deep-branching relationships of the papilionoid legumes
TLDR
The present matK phylogeny resolves the deep-branching relationships of the papilionoids with increased support for many clades, and suggests that taxonomic realignments of some genera and of numerous tribes are necessary.
Legume phylogeny and classification in the 21st century: Progress, prospects and lessons for other species-rich clades
TLDR
This work examines how the legume systematic research community might join forces to produce a comprehensive phylogenetic estimate for the Leguminosae, and examines how morphology can be incorporated into legume phylogeny to address issues in comparative biology and classification.
Amazon plant diversity revealed by a taxonomically verified species list
TLDR
A comprehensive dataset of Amazonian seed plant species from published sources that includes falsifiable data based on voucher specimens identified by taxonomic specialists is assembled, providing a valid starting point for macroecological and evolutionary studies aimed at understanding the origin, evolution, and ecology of the exceptional biodiversity ofAmazonian forests.
Identity and relationships of the Arboreal Caatinga among other floristic units of seasonally dry tropical forests (SDTFs) of north-eastern and Central Brazil
TLDR
There is a role for niche-based control of tree species composition across the SDTFs of the region determined primarily by the availability of ground water across time and secondarily by the amount of soil mineral nutrients.
A multilocus phylogenetic analysis reveals the monophyly of a recircumscribed papilionoid legume tribe Diocleae with well-supported generic relationships.
TLDR
This work presents a comprehensive molecular phylogenetic analysis based on nuclear and chloroplast markers and includes all genera ever referred to Diocleae except for the monospecific Philippine Luzonia, resolving several key generic relationships within the Millettioid legumes.
Stability structures tropical woody plant diversity more than seasonality: Insights into the ecology of high legume-succulent-plant biodiversity
TLDR
Phylogenies of legume taxa are ecologically structured along a tropical seasonality gradient, which suggests phylogenetic niche conservatism, and a model involving annual precipitation suggests that a threshold of $10,000 is needed to explain phylogenetic beta diversity.
Exploration of Plastid Phylogenomic Conflict Yields New Insights into the Deep Relationships of Leguminosae
TLDR
The robust phylogenetic backbone reconstructed in this study establishes a framework for future studies on legume classification, evolution, and diversification, although conflicting phylogenetic signal was detected and quantified at several key nodes that prevent the confident resolution of these nodes using plastome data alone.
