The chemical nature of fetid floral odours in stapeliads (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae-Ceropegieae).
Considering the findings in the unrelated Araceae, the results support the universality of different mimicry types that are obviously subsumed under the sapromyiophilous syndrome.
An updated classification for Apocynaceae
An updated suprageneric classification is provided for Apocynaceae to bring the family into better agreement with recent morphological and molecular, mainly phylogenetic-based, results. A total of…
Floral biology and pollination in stapeliads — new results and a literature review
The myiophilous pollination syndrome of stapeliads is investigated and flies constitute the most important pollinating group and carry pollinaria only at the distal parts of their proboscis, never on their legs.
ADVANCES IN APOCYNACEAE: THE ENLIGHTENMENT, AN INTRODUCTION1
The papers here present the most up-to-date overview of the Apocynaceae available at this time and include new results in phylogenetics, taxonomy, biogeography, pollination biology, and a pharmacophagous plant–butterfly interaction involving pyrrolizidine alkaloids.

Seed coat morphology of Aizoaceae–Sesuvioideae, Gisekiaceae and Molluginaceae and its systematic significance
Macro- and micromorphological characters of the seeds of 32 species belonging to Aizoaceae, Gisekiaceae and Molluginaceae were analysed for their taxonomic value, and seed characters support the independence of Gisekia in a family of its own.
A molecular phylogeny and generic rearrangement of the stapelioid Ceropegieae (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae)
Sequence data from two non-coding molecular markers support the traditional tribal affiliation of the taxon-rich stem-succulent stapeliads and most of the few related, leafy genera, which form a monophyletic group.
Fly pollination in Ceropegia (Apocynaceae: Asclepiadoideae): biogeographic and phylogenetic perspectives.
The genus Ceropegia has largely radiated without evolutionary shifts in pollinator functional specialization, maintaining its interactions with small Diptera.
Scent chemistry and pollinator attraction in the deceptive trap flowers of Ceropegia dolichophylla.
A Karyological Survey of Asclepiadoideae, Periplocoideae, and Secamonoideae, and Evolutionary Considerations within Apocynaceae s.l
The average karyotypes size diminishes from rather large chromosomes in the Periplocoideae to the smallest karyotype length in the presumed most advanced tribe of the Asclepidoideae, the As Clepiadeae, which has been taken place in parallel in the Old and New Worlds.
