Abstract. Representatives of nearly all genera of the taxon-rich stem-succulent stapeliads and most of the few related, leafy genera were analyzed. Sequence data from two non-coding molecular markers (ITS region of nrDNA and trnT-L and trnL-F spacers as well as the trnL intron of cpDNA) support the traditional tribal affiliation of the genera, which form a monophyletic group. This monophylum breaks into a basal Neoschumannia/Anisotoma/Riocreuxia/Sisyranthus nk;clade, from which the core… 
Molecular phylogeny of Ceropegia (Asclepiadoideae, Apocynaceae) from Indian Western Ghats
TLDR
It can be concluded that the classical morphology-based delineation of the two Ceropegia and Brachystelma needs revision to reflect their phylogenetic relationships, which are more in accordance with their geographical origin than with morphology.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS IN PERIPLOCOIDEAE (APOCYNACEAE S.L.) AND INSIGHTS INTO THE ORIGIN OF POLLINIA1
TLDR
It is most parsimonious to view pollinia in Periplocoideae as non-homologous with those of Secamonoideae and Asclepiadoideae, a hypothesis that is supported by their structural differences.
Taxonomic Considerations on Metastelmatinae (Apocynaceae) Based on Plastid and Nuclear DNA
TLDR
P phylogenetic relationships within this subtribe using plastid and nuclear markers indicated that most genera of Metastelmatinae are not monophyletic, and the lack of morphological features for individual clades prevented major taxonomic changes.
A revision and phylogenetic analysis of Stapeliopsis (Apocynaceae)
TLDR
It is shown that Stapeliopsis is monophyletic in a combined molecular and morphological analysis and is sister to a clade containing Huernia, Orbea and Tromotriche.
Phylogenetic relationships in Apocynaceae based on both nuclear and plastid molecular datasets
The phylogenetic relationships within Apocynaceae were investigated in the present study. In addition trnL-F intron-spacer region and atpB promoter, a part of PHYA exon, a low-copy nuclear gene were
CEROPEGIA (APOCYNACEAE, CEROPEGIEAE, STAPELIINAE): PARAPHYLETIC BUT STILL TAXONOMICALLY SOUND1
TLDR
It is proposed that the current taxonomy of the Ceropegia genus be maintained in the absence of adequate morphological, anatomical, or karyological characters supporting a taxonomic reclassification of the genus in accordance with the retrieved clades of the phylogenetic analysis.
Generic delimitations in tuberous Periplocoideae (Apocynaceae) from Africa and Madagascar.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The number of genera included in Apocynaceae subfamily Periplocoideae is a matter of debate. DNA sequences are used here as an independent dataset to clarify generic relationships
Phylogenetics of the New World Subtribes of Asclepiadeae (Apocynaceae—Asclepiadoideae): Metastelmatinae, Oxypetalinae, and Gonolobinae
TLDR
This study provides a framework for future study of the American MOG genera and highlights areas that need further attention and Chromosome numbers indicate a tendency for reduction in several clades.

Subtribe Astephaninae (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae) Reconsidered: New Evidence Based on cpDNA Spacers
TLDR
Based on the results presented here one of the key characters of the asclepiads-the corona-has been lost independently at least twice: once in the south African Astephaninae, andonce in the New World Metastelminae, which underscores the extreme lability of this morphologically complex organ, as well as the difficulties in assessing homology in the as Clepiads.
Phylogenetic relationships in Pleurothallidinae (Orchidaceae): combined evidence from nuclear and plastid DNA sequences.
TLDR
There is strong support in most analyses for the monophyly of Pleurothallidinae and in some for inclusion of Dilomilis and Neocognauxia of Laeliinae, and most genera in the nine clades identified in the analyses are monophyletic.
Phylogenetic relationships within Apocynaceae s.l. based on trnl intron and trnL-F spacer sequences and propagule characters
TLDR
The evolution of seed comas and enhanced long-distance dispersal within the Apocynaceae s.l. probably contributed to accelerated cladogenesis, ultimately giving rise to the majority of the extant genera within the family.
MOLECULAR CONSIDERATIONS IN THE TYLOPHORINAE K. SCHUM. ( APOCYNACEAE-ASCLEPIADOIDEAE )
TLDR
Pentatropis is always recognized as monophyletic, and probably covers the temperate species, while Tylophora covers those in the tropics and subtropics, while the small East African and Arabian genera Blyttia, Diplostigma, Goydera and Pleurostelma form a well-supported clade.
Circumscription of the Genus Cynanchum (Apocynaceae—Asclepiadoideae)
TLDR
It is shown that Cynanchum in its present circumscription is polyphyletic, and both the genus CynanchUM and the subtribe Metastelminae s.l. split along the Old World—New World geographic division.
Baynesia, a new genus of Stapeliad from the Northwestern-most corner of Namibia (Apocynaceae)
TLDR
A new genus of stapeliad, Baynesia, is described with a single species, B. lophophora Bruyns, known from the mountainous area in the northwestern-most corner of Namibia, where it was relatively plentiful but very local.
A Karyological Survey of Asclepiadoideae, Periplocoideae, and Secamonoideae, and Evolutionary Considerations within Apocynaceae s.l
TLDR
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.
Cytotaxonomic studies in African Asclepiadaceae
TLDR
The family Asclepiadaceae of about 290 genera is a homogeneous complex with complicated flower-structure with very slight morphological differences and diploid species of the genus Caralluma seem to form a species centre in South Arabia/East Africa.
Inclusion of Tenaris and Macropetalum in Brachystelma (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae-Ceropegieae) inferred from non-coding nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequences
TLDR
Parsimony analysis of sequence data from two non-coding molecular markers suggests a well-supported Brachystelma s.l. clade (including Tenaris and Macropetalum) with little internal resolution.

TLDR
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.
