Genetic characterization of Pelargonium L’Hér. germplasm
Fifteen species and eight cultivars of the section Pelargonium (DC.) Harv., two species of the section Ligularia (Sweet) Harv. and three species of the section Cortusina (DC.) Harv. were tested for
Phylogeny of Pelargonium (Geraniaceae) based on DNA sequences from three genomes
TLDR
Pelargonium was found to consist of five main clades, some with contrasting evolutionary patterns with respect to biogeographic distributions, dispersal capacity, pollination biology and karyological diversification.
Phylogenetics, character evolution and a subgeneric revision of the genus Pelargonium (Geraniaceae)
TLDR
Results favour the recognition of four, morphologically diagnosable, lineages as subgenera and support a revised subgeneric classification of Pelargonium, and a new section including two subsections is segregated from an otherwise paraphyletic section Polyactium.
Phylogeny, rate variation, and genome size evolution of Pelargonium (Geraniaceae).
The variability of nuclear DNA content of different Pelargonium species estimated by flow cytometry
TLDR
The reported genome sizes are a step forward towards the characterization of the Pelargonium collection within the German Gene Bank for Ornamental Plants and a valuable base for future sequencing programs of the pelargonium genomes.
MACROEVOLUTIONARY DATA SUGGEST A ROLE FOR REINFORCEMENT IN POLLINATION SYSTEM SHIFTS
TLDR
Comparative analysis of sister-species pairs of Geraniaceae, Iridaceae, and Orchidaceae showed that for sister species with overlapping distribution ranges, pollination system shifts are significantly associated with edaphic shifts, and for allopatric sister species, there is no significant association.
In vitro pharmacological properties and composition of leaf essential oils and extracts of selected indigenous pelargonium (geraniaceae) species
TLDR
The essential oil data was chemotaxonomically informative confirming taxonomic relationships between P. vitifolium and among P. panduriforme and P. quercifolia, and numerous similarities in their chemical profiles.
MACROEVOLUTIONARY DATA SUGGEST A ROLE FOR REINFORCEMENT IN POLLINATION SYSTEM SHIFTS
Abstract . Reproductive isolation can evolve either as a by‐product of divergent selection or through reinforcement. We used the Cape flora of South Africa, known for its high level of pollination

Floral structure and pollination in Pelargonium
The heterogeneity of Pelargonium in terms of structural blossom types and pollination syndromes indicates an independent and repeated evolution of convergent flower morphs in the genus and even in
PARSIMONY JACKKNIFING OUTPERFORMS NEIGHBOR‐JOINING
TLDR
For analysis of large matrices, parsimony jackknifing is hundreds of thousands of times faster than extensive branch‐swapping, yet is better able to screen out poorly‐supported groups.
