Skog, Laurence E. A Study of the Tribe Gesnerieae, with a Revision of Gesneria (Gesneriaceae: Gesnerioideae). Smithsonian Contributions to Botany, number 29, 182 pages, 86 figures, 9 tables, 1976.-A study is made of the tribe Gesnerieae of the family Gesneriaceae from the West Indies, giving information on history, anatomy and morphology, pollination and dispersal, and hybridization in the tribe. The tribe comprises 67 species in 3 genera: Rhytidophyllztm, Gesneria, and Pheidonocarpa. The last… Expand
A review of the Neotropical genera Amalophyllon , Niphaea , and Phinaea (Gesneriaceae - Gloxinieae)
Amalophyllon, originally described in Scrophulariaceae, is here recognized as a member of Gesneriaceae and as the first available generic name for the majority of the species previously included in Phinaea. Expand
Revision of Heppiella (Gesneriaceae)
Four species are recognized in the Andean genus Heppiella: H. ulmifolia that ranges from Colombia to Peru, H. viscida from northwestern Venezuela, H. verticillata from the Eastern Cordillera ofExpand
Reldia longipedunculata (Gesneriaceae), a new species from the Mache-Chindul Mountains of Northwestern Ecuador and an updated checklist of Reldia for the Neotropics
A new species, Reldia longipedunculata, is described from the Mache-Chindul Mountains near the border of the Bilsa Biological Research Station in northwestern Ecuador by the presence of erect peduncles to 10 cm long and narrowly obovate leaves. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in the Gesnerioideae (Gesneriaceae) based on nrDNA ITS and cpDNA trnL‐F and trnE‐T spacer region sequences†
This study presents maximum parsimony and maximum likelihood phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ribosomal DNA internal transcribed spacer regions (ITS) and chloroplast DNA trnL intron,trnF intergenic spacer region, and trnE‐trnT intergenicSpacer region sequences, and suggests that Sinningia and relatives should be considered as a separate tribe.

Palinotaxonomia de Besleria L. e Napeanthus Gardn. (Beslerieae/Napeantheae - Gesneriaceae) com ênfase nas espécies ocorrentes no Estado de São Paulo
The taxonomic importance of pollen morphology studies corroborating with the subdivision of the taxa in these tribes was demonstrated, with pollen grains of Besleria, N. primulifolius e N. reitzii occurring in southern Brazil demonstrated. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and generic boundaries in the Episcieae (Gesneriaceae) inferred from nuclear, chloroplast, and morphological data
P phylogenetic analyses utilizing two molecular and morphological datasets and one morphological dataset combined in a total evidence analysis show Drymonia is weakly supported and is shown here to be morphologically diverse and in need of further evaluation. Expand
A Phylogenetic Analysis within Tribes Gloxinieae and Gesnerieae (Gesnerioideae: Gesneriaceae)
A phylogenetic analysis using GCYC and four regions from the chloroplast genome resolved sister group relationships between radial and bilateral taxa with strong support as well as provided support for several clades within Gloxinieae and indicated that Phinaea is not a monophyletic genus. Expand
Temporal and spatial origin of Gesneriaceae in the New World inferred from plastid DNA sequences
It is suggested that ancestors of Gesneriaceae originated in South America during the Late Cretaceous, and that half of the species richness in the northern Andes and Central America originated during the last 10 Myr from a single radiation. Expand
Características Anatómicas de Hoja y Flor Con Importancia Taxonómica Para La Delimitación de Cuatro Especies En El Género Moussonia (Gesneriaceae)1
This work focuses principally on the study of several morphological and general anatomical features of the abaxial surface of the leaf and of the mesophyll as well as the adaxialsurface of the corolla tube, finding that these features have taxonomical value to delimit four species included in Moussonia.
