The Rubiaceae is the fifth largest plant family and is found on all continents, mostly in (sub-)tropical regions. Despite a large representation of Rubiaceae in the Paleotropics, the subfamily Cinchonoideae has its primary distribution in the Neotropics. Within the Cinchonoideae only two tribes, Naucleeae and Hymenodictyeae, have Paleotropical centers of distribution. In this study, we used information from five chloroplast DNA markers and fossil data to investigate when the subfamily was… 

Predominantly Eastward Long-Distance Dispersal in Pantropical Ochnaceae Inferred From Ancestral Range Estimation and Phylogenomics

TLDR
This study estimated divergence time and ancestral ranges based on a phylogenomic framework with a well-resolved phylogenetic backbone to tackle issues of the timing and direction of dispersal that may explain the modern global distribution of Ochnaceae.

Unraveling the biogeographical history of Chrysobalanaceae from plastid genomes.

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the rapid diversification of Chrysobalanaceae following the colonization of the Neotropics was triggered by habitat specialization during the complex geological and paleoclimatic history of theNeotropics.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis and generic delimitations in tribe Chiococceae (Cinchonoideae, Rubiaceae)

TLDR
This study presents the most comprehensive molecular phylogenetic study to date, including 27 genera and 125 species of Chiococceae, based on the phylogenetic tree generated by analysing molecular sequence data of two nuclear and two plastid regions using Bayesian and maximum likelihood methods.

Phylogeny and Generic Delimitations in the Sister Tribes Hymenodictyeae and Naucleeae (Rubiaceae)

TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses of the Hymenodictyeae-Naucleeae clade using nuclear and chloroplast data and a large sampling of both tribes support the monophyly of the tribes and provisionally maintain the current generic status of Neonauclea and its allied genera.

Historical biogeography of Melastomataceae: the roles of Tertiary migration and long-distance dispersal.

TLDR
Contradicting earlier hypotheses, the current distribution of Melastomataceae is thus best explained by Neogene long-distance dispersal, not Gondwana fragmentation.

POLYPHYLY IN GUETTARDA L. (RUBIACEAE, GUETTARDEAE) BASED ON NRDNA ITS SEQUENCE DATA1, 2

TLDR
Results indicate that Guettarda and two smaller genera, Antirhea and Stenostomum, are polyphyletic; other features, such as inflorescence architecture, sexual system, and palynology, appear to correlate more closely with the molecular phylogeny.

Tracing the impact of the Andean uplift on Neotropical plant evolution

Recent phylogenetic studies have revealed the major role played by the uplift of the Andes in the extraordinary diversification of the Neotropical flora. These studies, however, have typically

Biogeography of Exostema (Rubiaceae) in the Caribbean Region in Light of Molecular Phylogenetic Analyses

TLDR
Biogeographical patterns found in Exostema are similar to those reported for other Caribbean plant groups, with vicariance detected in certain cases, and dispersal often indicated by distribution, ecology and phylogeny for many taxa.

Molecular systematics of the Catesbaeeae-Chiococceae complex (Rubiaceae): flower and fruit evolution and biogeographic implications.

TLDR
A more detailed examination of the generic relationships within the Catesbaeeae-Chiococceae complex using two data sets, the nuclear ribosomal ITS regions and the trnL-F chloroplast intron and spacer lends further support to previous hypotheses that the CCC is monophyletic and sister to Strumpfia maritima.

Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the tribe Alberteae (Rubiaceae), with description of a new genus, Razafimandimbisonia

TLDR
The genus Alberta is found to be paraphyletic as presently circumscribed and the new genus Razafimandimbisonia Kainul is proposed by C. & B. Bremer to accommodate the Malagasy species.

Time Tree of Rubiaceae: Phylogeny and Dating the Family, Subfamilies, and Tribes

TLDR
This study estimated the phylogeny for 534 Rubiaceae taxa from 329 genera with up to five different chloroplast regions by Bayesian analysis, resulting in a highly resolved tree with many strongly supported nodes.

Abstract— The sister group of the monophyletic tribe Argostemmateae, including Argostemma and Neurocalyx, is not the tribe Hedyotideae, or a part of it, as earlier assumed, but the monophyletic tribe
