Evolution of Piperales--matK gene and trnK intron sequence data reveal lineage specific resolution contrast.
Natural colonization or introduction? Phylogeographical relationships and morphological differentiation of house geckos (Hemidactylus) from Madagascar
Morphological data strongly confirm the occurrence of three Hemidactylus species on Madagascar and demonstrate the presence of a fourth species, H. brooki, on the Mascarenes and Comoros archipelagos and indicates that populations of H.mercatorius in Madagascar have a long history that predates human settlement.
Phylogeny of the genus Peperomia (Piperaceae) inferred from the trnK/matK region (cpDNA).

It is shown that the importance of some morphological characters has been overestimated and that some of these characters presumably have evolved several times independently, and the first molecular phylogeny for the genus Peperomia is provided.
Detecting and Characterizing the Highly Divergent Plastid Genome of the Nonphotosynthetic Parasitic Plant Hydnora visseri (Hydnoraceae)
The greatly reduced and highly divergent, yet functional, plastome of the nonphotosynthetic holoparasite Hydnora visseri (Hydnoraceae, Piperales) is presented and a four-stage model of gene reduction is proposed to account for the range of plastid genomes in non photosynthetic plants.
Three New Species and Three New Records of Aristolochia Subgenus Siphisia from Vietnam including a Key to the Asian Species
Three new species of Aristolochia subgenus Siphisia from Vietnam are described and illustrated, and three species are newly reported for the flora of Vietnam that were until now restricted to China.
Local uses of Aristolochia species and content of nephrotoxic aristolochic acid 1 and 2--a global assessment based on bibliographic sources.
Single-Copy Nuclear Genes Place Haustorial Hydnoraceae within Piperales and Reveal a Cretaceous Origin of Multiple Parasitic Angiosperm Lineages
The “temporal specialization hypothesis” (TSH) is proposed, implementing multiple independent specialization processes over time during parasitic angiosperm evolution to show the utility of nSCG for reconstructing phylogenetic relationships in parasitic lineages.
A revised infrageneric classification of the genus Peperomia (Piperaceae)
The betrayed thief – the extraordinary strategy of Aristolochia rotunda to deceive its pollinators
A previously unknown pollination/mimicry system discovered in deceptive Aristolochia rotunda (Aristolochiaceae) involves scent mimicry and the exploitation of kleptoparasitic flies as pollinators and suggests a reconsideration of plants assumed to show sapromyiophilous pollination.
Systematics of Pipevines: Combining Morphological and Fast‐Evolving Molecular Characters to Investigate the Relationships within Subfamily Aristolochioideae (Aristolochiaceae)
A sister‐group relationship is proposed between Aristolochia lindneri and pentandrous species, which suggests that a group of five species from central and southern South America could be monophyletic and sister to Aristol Cochia subsect.
