Robinson, Harold. A Revision of the Tribal and Subtribal Limits of the Heliantheae (Asteraceae). Smithsonian Contributions to Botany, number 5 1 , 102 pages, 210 figures, 1981.-The tribe Heliantheae is expanded to include the genera previously placed in the tribe Heienieae and many genera from the Senecioneae. Thirty-five subtribes are recognized and described, and the more than 265 genera are listed with known, validly described synonyms. A theoretical key to subtribes is provided. Various…

A cladistic analysis of the tribeAstereae (Asteraceae) with notes on their evolution and subtribal classification
Several intercontinental relationships indicate that a geographical subdivision of the tribe should be avoided, although in the authors' analysis most of the groups proved to be restricted to one of five major regions.
The systematics of Simsia (Compositae : Heliantheae) /

Lipochaeta and Melanthera (Asteraceae: Heliantheae subtribe Ecliptinae): establishing their natural limits and a synopsis
Melanthera is delimited by an abruptly narrowed to truncate and flattened top of the achene, (0−)1–15(−20) often unequal, ciliate or barbellate, caducous pappus bristles immediately surrounding the corolla, involucral bracts and receptacular paleae with many veins forming longitudinal striations, and n=15.
A cladistic analysis involving 27 tribes and subtribes of Asteraceae and 81 characters is presented, finding little support for the hypothesis that other tribes are derived from or have their sister group within the Heliantheae.
