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

Floral ontogeny of Lecointea, Zollernia, Exostyles, and Harleyodendron (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Swartzieae s.l).
Floral initiation and development were examined using scanning electron microscopy in Exostyles venusta, Harleyodendron unifoliolatum, Lecointea hatschbachii, and Zollernia ilicifolia. CommonExpand

Floral Development of the Early-Branching Papilionoid Legume Amburana cearensis (Leguminosae) Reveals Rare and Novel Characters
Premise of research. We present a detailed analysis of the floral ontogeny of Amburana cearensis, which is an early-branching papilionoid legume with an unusual floral morphology. Especially theExpand

Comparative development of rare cases of a polycarpellate gynoecium in an otherwise monocarpellate family, Leguminosae.
PREMISE OF THE STUDY Apocarpy (i.e., free carpels) is considered to be the basal condition for ovary development in angiosperms. Yet it only occurs in 10% of angiosperm species, of which another 10%Expand

Floral ontogeny in Dipterygeae (Fabaceae) reveals new insights into one of the earliest branching tribes in papilionoid legumes
Flowers of Dipterygeae (Fabaceae, Papilionoideae) exhibit an unusual petaloid calyx. The two adaxial sepals are large and petaloid, and the three abaxial sepals form a three-toothed lobe. The goal ofExpand

Composition of the Lecointea clade (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae, Swartzieae), a re-evaluation based on combined evidence from morphology and molecular data
We investigated morphological and DNA sequence data for studying the composition and phylogenetic relationships of the Lecointea clade sensu Herendeen and for testing its monophyly. Expand

Elucidating the unusual floral features of Swartzia dipetala (Fabaceae)
In this study, we evaluated the floral ontogeny of Swartzia dipetala, which has peculiar floral features compared with other legumes, such as an entire calyx in the floral bud, a corolla with one orExpand
