A new subfamily classification of the leguminosae based on a taxonomically comprehensive phylogeny
The classification of the legume family proposed here addresses the long-known non-monophyly of the traditionally recognised subfamily Caesalpinioideae, by recognising six robustly supportedExpand

Evidence for a conserved karyotype in Swartzia (Fabaceae, Papilionoideae): Implications for the taxonomy and evolutionary diversification of a species-rich neotropical tree genus
To assess the taxonomic utility of cytogenetic variation in the species-rich neotropical papilionoid legume genus Swartzia and to ascertain the importance of cytogenetic evolution in theExpand
