While most species within the genus Chamaecostus (Costaceae) are well defined, the broad geographic range and long list of synonyms associated with Chamaecostus subsessilis led us to believe there may be some cryptic species within the complex. We thus investigate the phylogenetic relationships of species in the Chamaecostus lineage and specifically test the monophyly and diversity of the Chamaecostus subsessilis species complex from a population perspective by analyzing molecular sequence data…

TLDR
Morphological and genetic data show that the diversity of T. sidoides subsp.
Plant Species Complexes as Models to Understand Speciation and Evolution: A Review of South American Studies
TLDR
The main findings are discussed in light of the potential evolutionary mechanisms involved in speciation and future directions in terms of integrating multispecies coalescence methods with several complementary types of morphological, ecological, and geographical data in this research field are suggested.

TLDR
The cluster analysis by the PGMA method, through the Euclidean distance matrix, showed the intraspecific genetic variability among the samples and detected the one with the greatest genetic divergence being C. scaber.
Saponins from the rhizomes of Chamaecostus subsessilis and their cytotoxic activity against HL60 human promyelocytic leukemia cells
TLDR
Dioscin and gracillin were identified as active compounds from CHCl3 Fr from REEX of C. subsessilis, the first time that these saponins are isolated from this species.

Systematics and Evolution of the Tropical Monocot Family Costaceae (Zingiberales): A Multiple Dataset Approach
Abstract A phylogenetic analysis of molecular (ITS, trnL-F, trnK including the matK coding region) and morphological data is presented for the pantropical monocot family Costaceae (Zingiberales),
A new phylogeny-based generic classification of Costaceae (Zingiberales)
TLDR
The large pantropical genus Costus is found to be polyphyletic and is divided into four genera, three of which are new and has now a more concise generic concept including morphological synapomorphies previously absent due to the polymorphic nature of the prior nonmonophyletic assemble.
Integrative taxonomy reveals cryptic Amazonian species of Pristimantis (Anura: Strabomantidae)
TLDR
Multivariate analyses of qualitative and quantitative morphological and bioacoustic characters, and phylogenetic analyses support the hypothesis that two Bolivian Pristimantis with taxonomic problems represent different, previously unknown, cryptic lineages.
A molecular phylogeny of Costaceae (Zingiberales).
TLDR
This represents the first detailed investigation into intrageneric and interspecific evolutionary relationships within the family Costaceae and presents some novel evolutionary trends with respect to floral morphology and biogeography.
Detecting cryptic speciation in the widespread and morphologically conservative carpet chameleon (Furcifer lateralis) of Madagascar
TLDR
Two contrasting models of speciation within closely related species within the carpet chameleon Furcifer lateralis are supported and the utility of applying a combined evidence approach for detecting cryptic speciation is demonstrated.
Spiraling into History: A Molecular Phylogeny and Investigation of Biogeographic Origins and Floral Evolution for the Genus Costus
TLDR
The ancestral reconstruction of pollination syndrome presents the first evidence in this genus of an evolutionary toggle in pollination morphologies, demonstrating both the multiple independent evolutions of ornithophily (bird pollination) as well as reversals to melittophilous (bee pollination).
A revision of Aechmea subgenus Macrochordion (Bromeliaceae) based on phenetic analyses of morphological variation
TLDR
Cluster and principal components analyses were performed in order to identify how many taxa exist in this complex and how they can be distinguished morphologically, and results from phenetic analyses support the recognition of five species, one with two varieties.
AN AMPLIFICATION OF THE PHYLOGENETIC SPECIES CONCEPT
TLDR
The compatibility of the phylogenetic species concept with various biological needs for species and its use at the exclusion of alternative species concepts are discussed.
Rapid speciation and the evolution of hummingbird pollination in neotropical Costus subgenus Costus (Costaceae): evidence from nrDNA ITS and ETS sequences.
TLDR
A molecular clock approach suggests that diversification of the neotropical clade has been recent and rapid and that it coincides with dramatic climatic and geologic changes, Andean orogeny, and the closing of the Panama isthmus that occurred in the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs.
