Phylogeny of Cyperaceae Based on DNA Sequence Data: Current Progress and Future Prospects
The phylogenetic position of 40 species in 21 genera is presented in this study for the first time, elucidating their position in Abildgaardieae (Trachystylis), CryptangIEae (Didymiandrum, Exochogyne), Cypereae (Androtrichum, Volkiella), Eleocharideae (Chillania), and Schoeneae (Calyptrocarya, Morelotia).
Phylogeny and Biogeography of the Carnivorous Plant Family Sarraceniaceae
A robust, species-rich phylogeny of Sarraceniaceae is presented based on seven mitochondrial, nuclear, and plastid loci that suggest climatic change at different temporal and spatial scales in part shaped the distribution and diversity of this carnivorous plant clade.
The significance of Cyperaceae as weeds.
An overview of cyperaceous weeds, including economic losses, population dynamics, control methods, identification, biology, ecology, dispersal mechanisms, spread, and discussions of major weeds of agriculture, forestry, urban areas, and natural communities are provided.

Investigation of the species discriminatory power of a subset of the proposed plant barcoding loci in Carex suggests that a matK barcode could help with species discovery as 47% of Carex taxa recently named or resolved within cryptic complexes in the past 25 years also formed unique species clusters in upgma trees.
Flesh Flies (Diptera: Sarcophagidae) Associated with North American Pitcher Plants (Sarraceniaceae), with Descriptions of Three New Species
The sarcophagid flies that breed in North American pitcher plants of the genus Sarracenia are taxonomically revised and described and life history information is provided, including host associations between the flies and pitcher plant species.
Allozyme variation and genetic relationships among species in the C arex willdenowii complex (Cyperaceae)
A taxonomic study by Naczi, Reznicek, and Ford has determined that three species can be recognized within the C. willdenowii complex, with a caespitose growth habit and perigynia in close proximity to the staminate flowers suggest adaptations for selfing and therefore low levels of heterozygosity.
Phylogeny of Carex subg. Vignea (Cyperaceae) Based on Non-coding nrDNA Sequence Data
The results indicate that this inflorescence type has evolved multiple times and is derived within subg.
Sedges: Uses, Diversity, and Systematics of the Cyperaceae
The coverage of topics is broad, ranging from the ethnobotany of sedges, sedges as weeds, specific sedge floristic studies at various levels, to specific ecological and evolutionary aspects, including distribution of sedge along environmental gradients, phylogenetic studies of specific groups, and detailed studies of globally rare sedges.
SARRACENIA ROSEA (SARRACENIACEAE), A NEW SPECIES OF PITCHER PLANT FROM THE SOUTHEASTERN UNITED STATES
Pink petals, large flowers, short scapes, pitchers with thick lips, and lips deeply concave in dorsiventrally pressed pitchers are among the features that distinguish S. rosea from its closest relative, S. purpurea.
