Phylogenetics of the New World Subtribes of Asclepiadeae (Apocynaceae—Asclepiadoideae): Metastelmatinae, Oxypetalinae, and Gonolobinae
This study provides a framework for future study of the American MOG genera and highlights areas that need further attention and Chromosome numbers indicate a tendency for reduction in several clades.
Asclepiadeae classification: evaluating the phylogenetic relationships of New World Asclepiadoideae (Apocynaceae)
Comparing the taxonomic arrangement of subtribes with a topology obtained through analyses of two plastid DNA regions for 111 species of Asclepiadoideae representing the major lineages of the subfamily shows that without Jobinia, Nephradenia and Barjonia, AsclePIadeae are not monophyletic.
Secamone (Asclepiadaceae subfam. Secamonoideae) in Africa
The traditional boundaries of Secamone have been retained for this study pending a revision of the subfamily at generic level and a number of so-called primitive characters with the Periplocoideae and, in many cases, also with Apocynaceae are shared.
Field guide to the plants of northern Botswana, including the Okavango Delta : useful in countries and geographical areas adjacent to northern Botswana in the Zambesi Basin
Northern Botswana and surrounding regions boast a rich and scientifically important diversity of plants and animals, which attract large numbers of tourists and other visitors. This field guide
Coastal dry forests in northern Mozambique
This paper defines and characterises coastal dry forests found in northern Mozambique and assesses their present extent, botanical composition, conservation importance and the threats to these forests.
A new species of Lathyrus sect. Lathyrus (Leguminosae-Papilionoideae) from Turkey
Lathyrus belinensis N. Maxted & D. J. Goyder sp. nov. L. odorati L. affinis sed vexillo croceo-flavo venulis rubris, alis oblongis quam vexillo tertia parte brevioribus, carina alas aequanti
Notes on the African Genus Glossostelma (Asclepiadaceae)
Corona morphology appears useful for species delimitation, but is sometimes obscured in the past by reliance on few characters which have been given excessive weight in classifications of the group, particularly those concerned with the corona.
The Cuito catchment of the Okavango system: a vascular plant checklist for the Angolan headwaters
The existence of extensive peat deposits in the Cuito river system for the first time is noted and it is suggested that one of Barbosa’s vegetation types in the area needs to be reassessed.
Climate niches of milkweeds with plesiomorphic traits (Secamonoideae; Apocynaceae) and the milkweed sister group link ancient African climates and floral evolution.
Whether milkweeds have a drier climate niche is tested by comparing milk weeds with plesiomorphic traits (Secamonoideae) and the milkweed sister group in continental Africa, consistent with a shift from rainforests to dry forests in a cooling climate.
