Elsholtzia and its allied genera such as Collinsonia and Perilla (tribe Elsholtzieae, Lamiaceae) are an ecologically and economically important plant group consisting of ~71 species, with most species distributed in East and Southeast Asia, and several species in North America. Their phylogeny and historical biogeography resulting in a distant intercontinental disjunction are poorly understood. Here we use two nuclear (ETS, ITS) and five chloroplast (rbcL, matK, trnL-F, ycf1, ycf1-rps15… 
Chloroplast Phylogenomics Reveals the Intercontinental Biogeographic History of the Liquorice Genus (Leguminosae: Glycyrrhiza)
TLDR
Glycyrrhiza s.l. originated during the late Eocene and its most recent common ancestor (MRCA) was distributed in the interior of Eurasia and the circum-Mediterranean region, while its descendants have become widespread in temperate regions of the Old World Northern Hemisphere during the last million years.
Molecular phylogenetics and historical biogeography of the tribe Lilieae (Liliaceae): bi-directional dispersal between biodiversity hotspots in Eurasia.
TLDR
The study shows that biotic interchanges between the QTP region and Irano-Turanian region and the Mediterranean Basin were bi-directional, suggesting the latter was a secondary centre of diversity.
An updated tribal classification of Lamiaceae based on plastome phylogenomics
TLDR
An updated phylogenetically informed tribal classification for Lamiaceae is proposed that is supplemented with a detailed summary of taxonomic history, generic and species diversity, morphology, synapomorphies, and distribution for each subfamily and tribe.
Chloroplast phylogenomics and biogeography of liquorice (Leguminosae: Glycyrrhiza)
TLDR
Glycyrrhiza s.l. originated during the late Eocene and its most recent common ancestor (MRCA) was distributed in the interior of Eurasia and the circum-Mediterranean region, but its descendants have become widespread in temperate regions of the Old World Northern Hemisphere during the last million years.
Characterization of the Complete Chloroplast Genome of the Dragonhead Herb, Dracocephalum heterophyllum (Lamiaceae), and Comparative Analyses with Related Species
TLDR
The complete chloroplast genome of D. heterophyllum was reported and a series of comparative genomic analyses between this and closely related species of Lamiaceae were conducted, finding that D. heterogeneity were more closely related to D. moldavica and D. palmatum.
Revisiting of Carex sect. Confertiflorae s.l. (Cyperaceae): New data from molecular and morphological evidence and first insights on Carex biogeography in East Asia
TLDR
The phylogenetic structure, morphological affinities, and biogeographic history of sect.
A Narrow Endemic or a Species Showing Disjunct Distribution? Studies on Meehania montis-koyae Ohwi (Lamiaceae)
TLDR
It is reached that Chinese and Japanese M. montis-koyae have already become distinct biological entities, and a new taxon name Meehania zheminensis A. Takano, Pan Li, G.Xia is proposed for the Chinese plants.
A Revised Phylogeny of the Mentha spicata Clade Reveals Cryptic Species
TLDR
It is found that two of three traditional species in the subsection Spicatae are polyphyletic, as is the subsection as a whole, while the real number of cryptic species was underestimated, and its taxonomic status should be revised.
Anatomical and Ultrastructure Differences Between Some Species of the Genus Elsholtzia Willd. of Flora of Ukraine
TLDR
The tribe Elsholtzieae represents a small group within the subfamily Nepetoideae (Lamiaceae) and over 70 species containing many medicinally important herbs, mainly distributed in southeast and south Asia.

Molecular Phylogeny of Gueldenstaedtia and Tibetia (Fabaceae) and Their Biogeographic Differentiation within Eastern Asia
TLDR
The results suggest that Tibetia and Gueldenstaedtia were separated from each other about 17.23 million years ago, which is congruent with the Himalayan orogeny and the uplift of the Tibetan Plateau in the mid Miocene.
Phylogenetics, biogeography, and staminal evolution in the tribe Mentheae (Lamiaceae).
TLDR
A detailed perspective on the evolution of the tribe Mentheae is presented based on a phylogenetic analysis of cpDNA and nrDNA that is the most comprehensive to date, a biogeographic set of analyses using a fossil-calibrated chronogram, and an examination of staminal evolution.
Resolving the phylogenetic position of Ombrocharis (Lamiaceae), with reference to the molecular phylogeny of tribe Elsholtzieae
TLDR
This study represents both the most comprehensive phylogenetic analysis of Elsholtzieae to date and the only study to include all genera of El sholtzia, and there is weak support for Elsh Holtzieae as sister to the rest of Nepetoideae.
Phylogeny and evolution of basils and allies (Ocimeae, Labiatae) based on three plastid DNA regions.
Testing the Monophyly and Placement of Lepechinia in the Tribe Mentheae (Lamiaceae)
TLDR
The phylogenetic placement and monophyly of Lepechinia is examined within the context of the tribe Mentheae using cpDNA (ycfl and trnL-F) and nrDNA (ITS and ETS) markers.
Phylogeny of Lamiidae.
TLDR
The authors' phylogeny of Lamiidae reveals increased resolution and support for internal relationships that have remained elusive, and within Lamiales, greater resolution also is obtained, but some family interrelationships remain a challenge.
Towards resolving Lamiales relationships: insights from rapidly evolving chloroplast sequences
TLDR
Confidence about deep nodes of the Lamiales tree is an important step towards understanding the evolutionary diversification of a major clade of flowering plants and the evolution of selected morphological characters such as flower symmetry is discussed.
