The genus Thottea comprises about 35 species distributed from India throughout Southeast Asia. However, most of the species have a narrow distribution. A first molecular phylogeny based on the chloroplast trnK intron, matK gene and trnK-psbA spacer is presented and confirms the monophyly of the genus according to Hou in 1981. Earlier subdivisions into the sections or genera Apama and Thottea could not be substantiated since both proved to be paraphyletic with respect to each other. The…

Discordant Phylogenomic Placement of Hydnoraceae and Lactoridaceae Within Piperales Using Data From All Three Genomes
Extensive phylogenomic tree reconstructions based on up to 137 loci from all three subcellular genomes for all genera of Piperales are presented and it is proposed to exclude Hydnoraceae and Lactoridaceae from the broad circumscription of Aristolochiaceae, and instead favor recognition of four monophyletic and morphologically well circumscribed families in the perianth-bearing Piperales.
Ecology, forms and functions of the basal angiosperms from New Caledonia
The distribution of basal angiosperms in New Caledonia, as well as their drought sensitivity, support the hypothesis suggesting that early angios perms lived in humid and stable environments and that sympodial growth may have been acquired early during angiosPerms evolution.
Five major shifts of diversification through the long evolutionary history of Magnoliidae (angiosperms)
The ages of the main clades of Magnoliidae (above the family level) are older than previously thought, and in several lineages, there were significant increases and decreases in net diversification rates.

Escaping the lianoid habit: evolution of shrub-like growth forms in Aristolochia subgenus Isotrema (Aristolochiaceae).
It is suggested that while shrub-like species might have partly escaped from the constraints of life as lianas; their height size and stability are not typical of self-supporting shrubs and trees.
Growth Form Evolution in Piperales and Its Relevance for Understanding Angiosperm Diversification: An Integrative Approach Combining Plant Architecture, Anatomy, and Biomechanics
This review investigates patterns of growth form diversification in Piperales, an early-diverging lineage and the most morphologically diverse clade among magnoliids, as well as the biomechanical significance of developmental characters, such the organization, loss, and gain of woodiness.
Thottea sasidharaniana sp. nov. (Aristolochiaceae) from Peninsular India
A new species from the southern part of the Western Ghats, India is described and illustrated, which resembles T. tomentosa in having 6 distinct anthers, but the non-urceolate flowers and the inflorescence architecture distinguish T. sasidharaniana from T. dinghoui.
Major trends in stem anatomy and growth forms in the perianth-bearing Piperales, with special focus on Aristolochia.
It is proposed that the climbing habit of the perianth-bearing Piperales is a derived growth form, which evolved with the diversification of Aristolochia, and might have been a key feature for its diversification.
Thottea tapanuliensis (Aristolochiaceae): a new species from Sumatra, Indonesia.
Thottea tapanuliensis (Aristolochiaceae) is described here based on a plant collected from the west coast of northern Sumatra. This species is only known from type collection and is assigned here as
Thottea adichilthottiana (Aristolochiaceae), a new species from Ernakulam, Western Ghats, India
A new species of Thottea Rottb. (Aristolochiaceae) from Ernakulam District, Kerala, India, Thottea adichilthottiana Sunil and Naveen Kumar, is described and illustrated. The species is most similar


Phylogenetic relationships in Asarum(Aristolochiaceae) based on morphology and ITSsequences.

The phylogenetic data provide several clues about the biogeographic history of Asarum and suggest that: (1) the genus likely originated in Asia and underwent substantial diversification prior to colonizing NorthAmerica; and (2) AsArum in North America represents at least two historically distinct groups that likely achieved their NorthAmerican distributions at different times.
Systematics of Pipevines: Combining Morphological and Fast‐Evolving Molecular Characters to Investigate the Relationships within Subfamily Aristolochioideae (Aristolochiaceae)
A sister‐group relationship is proposed between Aristolochia lindneri and pentandrous species, which suggests that a group of five species from central and southern South America could be monophyletic and sister to Aristol Cochia subsect.
Phylogeny of the genus Peperomia (Piperaceae) inferred from the trnK/matK region (cpDNA).
It is shown that the importance of some morphological characters has been overestimated and that some of these characters presumably have evolved several times independently, and the first molecular phylogeny for the genus Peperomia is provided.
From forgotten taxon to a missing link? The position of the genus Verhuellia (piperaceae) revealed by molecules.
Verhuellia is a further example of how a molecular phylogenetic study can elucidate the relationships of an unplaced taxon and put character evolution in this family and in the perianthless Piperales in a different light.
Inflorescence morphology and systematics of the genus Thottea Rottb. (Aristolochiaceae) from the Western Ghats, India
Inflorescence morphology failed to provide a systematic key for distinguishing T. abrahamii from T. dinghoui, and Thottea ponmudiana is unique in the second species lineage due to its very special inflorescence features.
Molecular Phylogeny of Aristolochia sensu lato (Aristolochiaceae) based on Sequences of rbcL, matK, and phyA Genes, with Special Reference to Differentiation of Chromosome Numbers
To reconsider the systematics of Aristolochia sensu lato, its phylogeny is reconstructed based on nucleotide sequences of the chloroplast rbcL gene and the nuclear-encoded phytochrome A (phyA) gene for 19 representative species and the chlorOPlast matK gene of over 80 species.
Phylogenetic analyses of Polemoniaceae using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene matK
The family as a whole was monophyletic with no support for the segregate family Cobaeaceae, and several well supported groups allowed us to test hypotheses of relationship within Polemoniaceae.
Evolution of Piperales--matK gene and trnK intron sequence data reveal lineage specific resolution contrast.
Molecular data place Hydnoraceae with Aristolochiaceae.
Analyses of separate and combined data partitions support the monophyly of Hydnoraceae and the association of that clade with Aristolochiaceae sensu lato (s.l.) (including Lactoridaceae), and a more resolved phylogeny is required to determine whether these represent synapomorphies or independent acquisitions.
Floral morphology and systematics of the genus Thottea Rottb. (Aristolochiaceae) from the Western Ghats, India
Diversity in floral structure and organization of these eight species was analyzed from a systematic perspective and Floral morphology was thoroughly studied and discussed with emphasis on 16 qualitative and 11 quantitative characters.
