This paper provides a practical taxonomic treatment of the polyphyletic genus Centaurium Hill. This new classification defines monophyletic groups and thus reflects the phylogenetic relationships within the subtribe Chironiinae (Gentianaceae). For this purpose, the establishment of a new genus, Zeltnera, along with the reinstatement of Gyrandra Griseb. and Schenkia Griseb., results in numerous new species combinations, a more restrictive circumscription of Centaurium Hill, and novel generic…

Classification and Evolution of the Family Gentianaceae

TLDR
Recent biogeographic studies that address large-scale distribution patterns, vicariance events, and the significance of these new results are reviewed in this chapter, as are examples of evolutionary research progress within each tribe.

Phylogenetic relationships within the New World endemic Zeltnera (Gentianaceae-Chironiinae) inferred from molecular and karyological data.

TLDR
Karyological and molecular data sets support three main biogeographic groups for Zeltnera, thought to have a North American origin with considerable diversification in the early Pliocene (ca. 5 million years ago).

Phylogenetic patterns and polyploid evolution within the Mediterranean genus Centaurium (Gentianaceae - Chironieae)

TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships, inferred from sequences of both nrDNA and cpDNA regions, confirm the monophyly of Centaurium and reveal the importance of polyploidy within the genus.

The Identity and Nomenclature of the Pacific North American Species Zeltnera muhlenbergii (Gentianaceae) and its Distinction from Centaurium tenuiflorum and Other Species with Which it Has Been Confused

TLDR
Zeltnera muhlenbergii differs most notably in its flabelliform rather than ovate stigmatic lobes and in its more open, non-corymboid cymes.

Allopolyploid Origin of the Mediterranean Endemic, Centaurium bianoris (Gentianaceae), Inferred by Molecular Markers

TLDR
The molecular data confirmed the hypothesis of an allotetraploid origin of C. bianoris via hybridisation between C. tenuiflorum and C. maritimum, the latter being the maternal parent, and the polyphyletic behaviour of C-bianoris on the ITS cladogram may denote a recurrent origin for that taxon.

Validation of the Name Zeltnera texensis (Gentianaceae)

The authorship of the name Erythraea texensis, basionym of the combination Centaurium texense (Griseb.) Fernald, was attributed to Griseb. ex Hook. by Fernald (1908), Britton and Brown (1913), Turner

Notes on Status and Ecology of the Endangered Hawaiian Annual 'Awiwi, Centaurium sebaeoides (Gentianaceae) 1

TLDR
The annual, endemic, coastal herb Centaurium sebaeoides is the only native Hawaiian species in the gentian family and was listed as Endangered under the Endangered Species Act on 29 Octo­ ber 1991.

Flora of Guatemala

TLDR
The flora of Guatemala is the richest and most lixersified of any in Central America for a variety of reasons and is home to a combination of varied climatic, physiographic, and edaphic conditions.
