  journal={Plant Systematics and Evolution},
Inflorescence and floral development of three species of Indigofera (Leguminosae-Papilionoideae), I. lespedezioides, I. spicata, and I. suffruticosa, were investigated and compared with that of other papilionoid groups, especially with members of the recently circumscribed Millettioid clade, which was merged as sister to Indigofereae in a recent cladistic analysis. Although Indigofera is a genus of special interest, because of its great richness in species and its economic importance, few… 
Floral Organogenesis in Three Members of the Tribe Delphinieae (Ranunculaceae)
The results showed that members of Delphinieae differ from their polysymmetrical relatives by four unique features: a spiral phyllotaxis of their perianth and stamens, and a series of carpels, which initiated superficially in a whorl-liked arrangement.
Morphoanatomy of three Indigofera species (Leguminosae-Papilionoideae) in Java, Indonesia
The morphological and detailed anatomical features of the stems, leaves, and roots from three Indonesian Indigofera species could complement the novelty of the morpho-anatomy information records obtained by previous researchers.
Evidence for Division of Labor and Division of Function Related to the Pollen Release in Papilionoideae (Leguminosae) with a Heteromorphic Androecium
The androecium development corresponds with differences in the pollen structure and functionality, and there is strong evidence for a division of functions in both studied species.
Flower development of Goniorrhachis marginata reveals new insights into the evolution of the florally diverse detarioid legumes
The study of floral morphology and ontogeny and the re-investigation of existing data help to uncover potential synapomorphic characters and foster the understanding of phylogenetic relationships that rely primarily on molecular analyses.
Floral development elucidates the formation of a tubular calyx and connate stamens in Cecropieae species (Urticaceae)
The floral development of Cecropieae is quite similar and less labile than in the other Urticaceae species, and the formation of the tubular calyx and connate stamens occurs very early in development, characterizing a congenital union.
The Indigofera are frequently shrubs, and some are small trees or herbaceous perennials or annuals. These have pinnate leaves. Racemes of flowers grow in the leaf axils, in hues of red, but there are
Evolutionary Developmental Biology (Evo-Devo) Research in Latin America.
Here, the first comprehensive overview of the Evo-Devo laboratories based in Latin America is provided and current lines of research based on endemic species are described, focusing on body plans and patterning, systematics, physiology, computational modeling approaches, ecology, and domestication.
Chitosan Nanoparticles as a Carrier for Indigofera intricata Plant Extract: Preparation, Characterization and Anticancer Activity
The results revealed that traditional medicinal plants could be an excellent source of natural anticancer agents and the chitosan-extract nanoparticles is a promising formulation strategy to enhance their clinical effectiveness.
Resolving the non-papilionaceous flower of Camoensia scandens, a papilionoid legume of the core genistoid clade: development, glands and insights into the pollination and systematics of the group.
The goal of this study is to elucidate the ontogenetic pathways that result in such a peculiar flower and the glands responsible for the sweet fragrance of the petals and the comparison of the data with that of other genistoid flowers enabled discussions about the pollination and systematics of the group.
Microstructure of floral nectaries in Robinia viscosa var. hartwigii (Papilionoideae, Fabaceae)—a valuable but little-known melliferous plant
The location of the nectaries and the mode of nectar production in the flowers of the Hartweg’s locust follow the common location and structure pattern characteristic for the nECTaries in some members of the subfamily Papilionoideae and can be a significant taxonomic trait for the genus Robinia and the tribe Robinieae.


Comparative Study on the Aerial and Subterranean Flower Development in Amphicarpaea edgeworthii Benth. (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae), an Amphicarpic Species
The findings in this study show that the subterranean flower was not a morphologically specific flower type diverged from the aerial cleistogamous flower, showing the potential for outcrossing.

The occurrence of asymmetric androecia in basal lineages of Papilionoidae and in some Caesalpinioideae and its independence from staminal fusion is of interest in understanding legume evolution.
Floral ontogeny in tribe Dalbergieae (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae):Dalbergia brasiliensis, Machaerium villosum s. l.Platymiscium floribundum, andPterocarpus rotundifolius
The aims were to compare ontogenies and to elucidate if floral ontogenetic data will provide new character states diagnostic of the tribe Dalbergieae, which is considered a basal papilionoid tribe and primarily defined on fruit characters.
Floral ontogeny of Hardenbergia violacea (Fabaceae: Faboideae: Phaseoleae) and taxa of tribes Bossiaeeae and Mirbelieae, with emphasis on presence of pseudoraceme inflorescences
The floral ontogeny of several Australian papilionoid taxa has been studied in Hardenbergia violacea, which becomes strongly zygomorphic as evidenced by three petal morphs and upturning of the free portions of style and stamens late in development.
Floral ontogeny in Swartzia (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Swartzieae): distribution and role of the ring meristem.

Swartzieae is unlikely to be ancestral to the rest of Papilionoideae, based on radically differing floral ontogeny in the two groups, and ring meristems are considered to be homologous among Neotropical species studied as well as in the African S. madagascariensis.
Indigofera L. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae) no estado de São Paulo, Brasil
Nine species of Indigofera L. (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae) are found in the state of Sao Paulo, Brazil in an inventory of herbaria material and plants collected in the field, with descriptions and illustrations for the species presented.
Comparative floral ontogeny in Adesmia (Leguminosae: Papilionoideae: Dalbergieae)
The present study suggests that the ontogenetic floral differences among Adesmia species may be useful in a re-evaluation of infrageneric categories and for future systematic analyses.
The order of initiation of floral organs is compared in representative caesalpinioid and papilionoid legumes, and a survey of unidirectionality reported among legumes is presented.
Phylogeny of the tribe Indigofereae (Leguminosae-Papilionoideae): Geographically structured more in succulent-rich and temperate settings than in grass-rich environments.
This analysis goes beyond many phylogenies in exploring how phylogenetic structure imposed by morphology, ecology, and geography reveals useful evolutionary data, suggesting niche conservation and dispersal limitation are important processes rendering signature shapes to the Indigofereae phylogeny in different biomes.
