The new endemic Malagasy genus Dupzlya is proposed based on morphological characters. It has two species, D. haraka, comb. nov., and D. madagascariensis, comb. nov., and is distinguished from related genera in having no petals, numerous stamens, a whorl of staminodes inside the stamens, and a number of distinctive seed characters. A new combination is also made for Dupuya madagascariensis subsp. tamarindoides. Dupuya is a member of the aldinoid clade with the genera AlCdina, Ambllrana, Cordyla…

It is recommended that conservation efforts should focus on past and present biotic and abiotic interactions in the Madagascar spiny thicket, considering that this unique habitat is an evolutionary cradle for at least three genera.

The Leguminosae of Madagascar

A revision of the Leguminosae of Madagascar is soon to be completed, covering some 670 species including 6 new genera and 121 new species, which has provided the basis for a pilot project applying computer mapping (GIS) to the investigation of ecological parameters which determine the extent of species distributions.

Phylogenetic Relationships of Basal Papilionoid Legumes Based Upon Sequences of the Chloroplast trnL Intron

Preliminary results indicate radical changes are necessary for papilionoid classification because Swartzieae, Sophoreae, and Dalbergieae are polyphyletic.

The distribution and phylogenetic significance of a 50-kb chloroplast DNA inversion in the flowering plant family Leguminosae.

The 50-kb inversion appears to be a unique event in the evolution of Leguminosae, providing a synapomorphy for a clade that includes most of the Papilionoideae.
