Abstract Caamembeca (Polygalaceae) is a genus of 13 species endemic to South America. The genus is morphologically distinctive, e.g. supported by the putative morphologic synapomorphy of paired glands in a stipular position and on the rachis. However, its monophyly has not been robustly tested as only four species have been included in previous phylogenetic analyses. We present a phylogenetic analysis of 11 species based on nrITS, matK, the trnL intron, and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer… 

One for all: molecular study of Polygala major complex (Polygalaceae) in Southwest Asia

Based on the molecular evidence and main diagnostic morphological features, the ten species of the P. major complex are synonymized under P.major and typifications of eight combinations in Polygala from Western Asia and Europe are clarified.

Interspecific hybridization in North American Polygala (Polygalaceae)

It is found that the morphologically intermediate individuals within intermixed populations of both species pairs did indeed share all of the variable nucleotide sites in nrITS among the parent species, and it was determined that in bothspecies pairs, the parentage was bidirectional.

Polygala guilanica (Polygalaceae), a new species from Guilan Province, N Iran

A new species, Polygala guilanica (Polygalaceae), is described from Kooh-Roubar, Gasht-Roodkhan protected area in W Guilan province, N Iran, based on its prostrate stem and tiny pink-white flowers in lax terminal racemes.

Polygala veadeiroensis (Polygalaceae), a new species of Polygala endemic to Chapada dos Veadeiros, Goiás, Brazil

A new species, Polygala veadeiroensis (Polygalaceae) subgenus polygala section Timutua DC, is described from Chapada dos Veadeiros, Goiás State, Brazil.

An in-silico approach for the evaluation of six DNA barcodes by using Maximum Likelihood (ML) and TaxonDNA approaches for some Polygalaceae

The results have shown that, while none of the six loci reviewed here completely fulfils the ideal DNA barcoding criteria; yet, matK region is the most useful DNA barcode for the Polygalaceae.

Moutabea chartacea (Polygalaceae), a new species from the north-central Amazon and Guayana Shield

Se describe e ilustra la especie Moutabea chartacea, de los bosques húmedos de tierras bajas de Brasil (estado Amazonas), Venezuela (estados Amazonas, Bolívar y Delta Amacuro) y Colombia

Xanthones and Xanthone O‐β‐D‐Glucosides from the Roots of Polygala azizsancarii Dönmez

Nine xanthone derivatives (1–9) were isolated from the roots of Polygala azizsancarii, which is a narrow endemic species for the flora of Türkiye. Based on all of the evidence, the structures of 1–9

Anatomia da glândula nodal em Moutabea chodatiana Huber e Securidaca bialata Benth. (Polygalaceae)

As glândulas dos táxons analisados, apesar of formas distintas, apresentaram a mesma origem, todas ligadas ao traço foliar confirmando estudos anteriores sobre a natureza foliar destas estruturas na família.

The generic boundaries within the sub-family Silenoideae (Caryophyllaceae), and especially within the complex Silene-Lychnis-Melandrium have long been controversial. These 3 genes are now grouped in

The phylogeny of thePolygalaceae is analysed cladistically and it is concluded thatMonnina subg.Monninopsis andM.Pterocarya are better recognized as independent genera, here described as Ancylotropis andPteromonnina, respectively.

Preliminary synopsis of the genus Hebecarpa (Polygalaceae)

To make the most accurate names available for modern workers, 11 names are transferred which the authors think most likely reflect discreet evolutionary lineages (species) and bringing the total number of Hebecarpa species to 19.

A Synopsis, New Combinations, and Synonyms in Acanthocladus (Polygalaceae)

A synopsis of the American genus Acanthocladus Klotzsch ex Hassk.

Taxonomia das espécies de Polygala L. subg. Hebeclada (Chodat) Blake (Polygalaceae) ocorrentes no Brasil

An identification key of the species, their descriptions and illustrations, as well as informations about flowering and frutification times, habitat and geographic distribution are presented.

O gênero Polygala L. (Polygalaceae) na região Sul do Brasil

The survey recorded 39 species of PolyGala to Southern Brazil, representing the subgenera Hebeclada, Ligustrina and Polygala, the last one with 31 species.

Polygala minima (Polygalaceae) in Western Mexico

Abstract: The widespread Neotropical species Polygala glochidiata has traditionally been considered the only Polygala with uncinate seed hairs to occur in Mexico. A second species with such hairs

Phylogenetic systematics of the tribe Millettieae (Leguminosae) based on chloroplast trnK/matK sequences and its implications for evolutionary patterns in Papilionoideae.

Phylogenetic relationships in the tribe Millettieae and allies in the subfamily Papilionoideae (Leguminosae) were reconstructed from chloroplast trnK/matK sequences, suggesting that the presence of a pseudoraceme or pseudopanicle and the accumulation of nonprotein amino acids are phylogenetically informative for Milletties and allies with only a few exceptions.

A phylogeny of legumes (Leguminosae) based on analysis of the plastid matK gene resolves many well-supported subclades within the family.

Analysis of the matK data consistently resolves but modestly supports a clade comprising papilionoid taxa that accumulate canavanine in the seeds, which suggests a single origin for the biosynthesis of this most commonly produced of the nonprotein amino acids in legumes.

Generic Status and Lectotypifications for Gymnospora (Polygalaceae)

The name P. blanchetii Chodat is established, in keeping with its traditional treatment, and a taxonomic key for species identification is presented and it is argued that P. Blanchetius Chod at should not be treated as a synonym of P. B. Pastore.
