Penalized likelihood estimated ages of both densely sampled intracontinental and sparsely sampled transcontinental crown clades in the legume family show a mostly Quaternary to Neogene age distribution, with young age estimates detected despite methodological approaches that bias results toward older ages.
Phylogenetic relationships and taxonomy of subfamily Zygophylloideae (Zygophyllaceae) based on molecular and morphological data
Phylogenetic analysis of noncoding trnL plastid DNA sequences and morphological data for 43 species of Zygophylloideae, representing most of the morphological and geographical variation in the subfamily, indicates that the currently recognised genera Augea, Tetraena, and Fagonia are embedded inZygophyllum.
Africa, the Odd Man Out: Molecular Biogeography of Dalbergioid Legumes (Fabaceae) Suggests Otherwise
A molecular biogeographic study in the legume family that suggests a vicariant biogeographical relationship between Africa and North America is presented, and is likely to be shown with additional phylogenetic analysis to be prevalent among legume groups and other taxa that diversified during the Tertiary in seasonally dry tropical vegetation.

Molecular and morphological analyses indicate that Barbeya and Dirachma are closely related inter se as well as toRhamnaceae andElaeagnaceae, and it seems best to retain bothBarbeyaceae andDirachmaceae in their present circumscriptions, but in both cases in completely new positions in the angiosperm system.
Phylogenetic relationships and biogeography of the desert plant genus Fagonia (Zygophyllaceae), inferred by parsimony and Bayesian model averaging.

Nine types of forest are described from this partially arid region of the Horn of Africa about the habitats and distribution of the tree species of these forests, as well as information about their dispersal and diaspore size.

A molecular phylogenetic analysis was undertaken in the effort to resolve long-standing taxonomic questions centered on floral morphology and resolved six well-supported clades of American Vigna that are most closely related to other American genera.
Phylogeny of the tribe Antirrhineae (Scrophulariaceae) based on morphological andndhF sequence data
It is concluded that hummingbirdpollination has evolved independently within Antirrhineae at least three times from bee-pollinated ancestors.
