The endemic vascular plants of the Cape Verde Islands, W Africa
Abstract The archipelago of Cape Verde consists of nine main islands of oceanic origin situated 500 km west of the African mainland. The present study aims at increasing our knowledge of the endemic…

The best estimate of the age of Cichorieae and its subtribes is provided based on available fossil evidence and DNA sequences and to interpret their biogeography in the light of Earth history.
Molecular Phylogeny of the Lactuca Alliance (Cichorieae Subtribe Lactucinae, Asteraceae) with Focus on Their Chinese Centre of Diversity Detects Potential Events of Reticulation and Chloroplast…
An improved species level taxonomy of the Chinese Lactucinae is outlined; new synonymies and some new combinations are provided and it is concluded that the major lineages revealed are best treated at generic rank.
Sub‐Paratethyan origin and Middle to Late Miocene principal diversification of the Lactucinae (Compositae: Cichorieae) inferred from molecular phylogenetics, divergence‐dating and biogeographic…
Eritreo-Arabian Affinities of the Socotran Flora as Revealed from the Molecular Phylogeny of Aerva (Amaranthaceae)
The data point towards colonization via dispersal, rather than a vicariance origin of the island elements, and the overall biogeographic patterns of Aerva show only limited concordance with other taxonomic groups distributed on Indian Ocean islands.
Scorzonera karabelensis (Compositae,) a new species from SW Anatolia, with a key to the subscapigerous Scorzonera species in Turkey
A key to all facultatively or consistently subscapigerous, entire-leaved Scorzonera species growing in the mountains of Turkey is provided.
The Hybantho durae-Anogeissetum dhofaricae ass. nova - phytosociology, structure and ecology of an endemic South Arabian forest community
Scorzonera sensu lato (Asteraceae, Cichorieae) – taxonomic reassessment in the light of new molecular phylogenetic and carpological analyses
A comprehensive sampling is presented, for the first time, including Scorzonera in its widest sense and all other genera recognised in the Scorzonerinae, and a revised classification of the subtribe is proposed, accepting the genera Scorzoneera and other related genera.
Ethnobotany, chemical constituents and biological activities of the flowers of Hydnora abyssinica A.Br. (Hydnoraceae).
Flowers of this species were studied for their ethnobotanical, biological and chemical properties for the first time and justify the traditional use of the flowers of Hydnora abyssinica in South Yemen.
