Subtribal division of Ceropegieae (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae)
Monophyly and sister group relationship of Ceropegieae and Marsdenieae, the two Asclepiadoideae tribes possessing erect pollinia, are confirmed by molecular investigation of non-coding cpDNA markers
Taxonomic dissolution of Sarcostemma (Apocynaceae: Asclepiadoideae)
The present contribution serves to complete the formal transfer of Sarcostemma taxa to Cynanchum, in which a total of nine species are concerned, and six subspecies of Cynanchu viminale are newly combined.
Chemical diversity of floral volatiles in Asclepiadoideae-Asclepiadeae (Apocynaceae)
Floral volatiles of 15 plant species from 8 genera of the Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae tribe Asclepiadeae were investigated to get a better understanding of the odor chemistry, and of the role of odors in pollinator attraction.

  • 1 September 1994
The comparative morphological analysis of vegetative and generative organs, combined with data from an investigation of floral flavonoids, from a breeding programme and from field studies, form the basis for the new taxonomic approach presented.
Cynanchum (Apocynaceae: Asclepiadoideae) : A pantropical Asclepiadoid genus revisited
The present study of more than 100 species, based on Bayesian and maximum likelihood analysis of five chloroplast and four nuclear markers, resolves nine clades and introduces twelve new species combinations, two new subspecies combinations, and two new names.
Phylogeny and circumscription of Antillean Anemotrochus, gen. nov., and Tylodontia (Apocynaceae: Asclepiadoideae: Gonolobinae)
Abstract: Combined molecular and morphological analyses demonstrate that a number of small-flowered Caribbean Asclepiadoideae of hitherto uncertain affiliation form two independent lineages in
Dissolution of Cynanchum sect. Macbridea (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae)
As a consequence of the recently established polyphyly of American Cynanchum (Apocynaceae—Asclepiadoideae), the former section Macbridea is analyzed in detail using molecular, karyological and
The Orthosiinae Revisited (Apocynaceae, Asclepiadoideae, Asclepiadeae)1
The genus Scyphostelma is reinstated, and 26 species, most previously in Cynanchum, are transferred, so that the genus now comprises 25 species.
Phylogenetics and Biogeography of the Genus Metastelma (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae-Asclepiadeae: Metastelmatinae)
It is revealed that Metastelma is polyphyletic in its present circumscription, and several morphologically similar but geographically isolated taxa, interpreted previously as varieties and subspecies of the same species, are shown to be polyphylettic.
