The complete chloroplast genome sequences of eight Orostachys species: Comparative analysis and assessment of phylogenetic relationships

The phylogenetic analysis showed that Orostachys formed polyphyly, and subsects O. ramosa and O. japonica and Appendiculatae were clustered with Hylotelephium and Meterostachys, respectively, supporting the conclusion that each subsection should be considered as an independent genus.

Morphological traits of Sedum album sensu stricto (Crassulaceae): variability patterns across the Balkan Peninsula

The obtained results indicate moderate to highly expressed variability of most of the analyzed traits, as well as differences in the mean values of all characters, indicating a high level of morphological diversity of S. album in the Balkan Peninsula.

Invasion of Kalanchoe by clonal spread

The lack of genotypic diversity suggests that the invasion by these two species and the hybrid occurred from the introduction of one genotype, and have expanded by clonal growth and human mediated dispersal.

Molecular Phylogenetics of Crassulaceae

The major contributions to the phylogeny of Crassulaceae based on molecular data are reviewed, with emphasis on the major clades established in the family, the clades’ structure and polyphyly of some genera.

Molecular phylogeny and systematics of flowering plants of the family Crassulaceae DC

It is shown that the traditional taxonomic structure of Crassulaceae contradicts pattern of phylogenetic relationships between its members, and it is stressed that homoplasy of morphological characters does not allow to use them to reconstruct relationships between crassulacean taxa even at the low taxonomic levels.

Linnaeus's folly – phylogeny, evolution and classification ofSedum(Crassulaceae) and Crassulaceae subfamily Sempervivoideae

This study presents a broadly sampled and dated molecular phylogeny of Sempervivoideae including 80% of all infrageneric taxa described in Sedum as well as most other genera of the subfamily and believes that combination of all 14 genera currently recognized in tribe Sedeae into Sedum might be the most stable solution of the “Sedum problem”.

×Sedeveria mauroi (Crassulaceae), a new alien species established in NE Italy

Summary: A new nothospecies belonging to the Crassulaceae was discovered by one of the authors (MM) near the Garda Lake (Trentino, Italy). Study of the plant in the field and in cultivation for some

Taxonomy and typification of Kalanchoe olivacea and K. bhidei (Crassulaceae)

The study is based on an examination of living and herbarium collections and includes updated nomenclature, typification, and notes on distribution and conservation status of Kalanchoe olivacea Dalzell and K. bhidei T.Cooke (Crassulaceae).

Drosanthemum decumbens (Aizoaceae), a New Status for an Obligatory Cremnophyte from the Western Cape, South Africa

It differs from Drosanthemum expersum by its re-sprouting lignotuber, procumbent to pendent stems, shorter pedicels 10–15 (–35) mm long, and fruiting capsules turning reddish before drying.
