Crassulaceae (orpine or stonecrop family) is the most species-rich (ca. 1400 spp) family in the order Saxifragales. Most members of the family are succulent plants. Phenotypic diversity and large number of species complicates systematics of the family and obscures reconstruction of relationship within it. Phylogenetic analyzes based on morphological and molecular markers placed Crassulaceae as one of the crown clades of Saxifragales. In this contribution a review of phylogenetic studies on the… Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Evolution in Dudleya (Crassulaceae)
TLDR
The first molecular phylogeny of diploid members of the genus Dudleya using sequences from nrDNA and cpDNA is presented and it is shown that Dudleya is more closely related to North American Sedum species of the Sedoideae subfamily than to members of its currently circumscribed subfamily, the Echeverioideae. Expand
ITS rDNA sequence comparisons resolve phylogenetic relationships in Orostachys subsection Appendiculatae (Crassulaceae)
TLDR
The first molecular phylogeny of Orostachys subsection Appendiculatae is presented based on a large number of ITS rDNA sequences representing most currently recognized members of the subsection and utilizing secondary structure information. Expand
A Molecular Phylogenetic Study of the Genus Phedimus for Tracing the Origin of “Tottori Fujita” Cultivars
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analysis is suggested as a powerful tool for clearly tracing the origin of cultivated plants using a phylogenetic tree based on molecular data. Expand
Morphological traits of Sedum album sensu stricto (Crassulaceae): variability patterns across the Balkan Peninsula
TLDR
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. Expand
Rhodiola integrifolia: hybrid origin and Asian relatives
TLDR
The relationship among North American Rhodiola integrifolia, Rhodiola rosea L., and Rhodiola rhodantha is investigated and a fragment of the nuclear-encoded chloroplast-expressed glutamine synthetase (ncpGS) gene from these three species and from selected Asian representatives of the genus Rhodiola is sequencing. Expand
Plastid genome of stonecrop Hylotelephium verticillatum (Sedoideae; Crassulaceae): insight into structure and phylogenetic position
TLDR
Phylogenetic analysis of 15 representative plastomes within the family Crassulaceae suggests that H. verticillatum is sister to congeneric H. ewersii, and the first complete chloroplast genome sequence was reported. Expand
Distribution and Variability of n‐Alkanes in Epicuticular Waxes of Sedum Species from the Central Balkan Peninsula: Chemotaxonomic Importance
TLDR
It was shown that the n‐alkane variability of the central Balkan Sedum species was considerable and that n‐alksanes might not be very reliable taxonomic markers for these species. Expand
Can phylogenetic signal, character displacement, or random phenotypic drift explain the morphological variation in the genus Geonoma (Arecaceae)?
TLDR
If most morphological variables traditionally used to classify Geonoma evolved randomly or convergently, it might explain Ge onoma's challenging taxonomy, and the phylogenetic signal hypothesis was tested. Expand
A new Potyvirus species in Cotyledon orbiculata in mixed infection with a Nucleorhabdovirus.
TLDR
The identification and characterization of viruses associated with foliar mosaic and distortion of Cotyledon orbiculata from the succulent plant collection of the garden of the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil shows that the potyvirus of C. orbicULata may be a new species for which the name CotYledon virus Y (CotVY) is suggested.

Development of Embryo Suspensors for Five Genera of Crassulaceae with Special Emphasis on Plasmodesmata Distribution and Ultrastructure
TLDR
The results indicated the dependence of PD ultrastructure on the type of suspensor development: simple PD are assigned to an uniseriate filamentous suspensor and PD with an electron-dense material are formed in a multiseriate suspensor. Expand

Phylogenetics and diversification of Cotyledon (Crassulaceae) inferred from nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequence data.
TLDR
Results indicate that C. orbiculata is not monophyletic and suggest the need for additional studies and a revised classification within the genus, which is particularly diverse in growth form, flower color and size, and leaf morphology. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships among members of the subfamily Sedoideae (Crassulaceae) inferred from the ITS region sequences of nuclear rDNA
TLDR
It was shown that the genus Orostachys was not monophyletic; its type subsection was significantly included into the clade of the genus Hylotelephium and sister relationships were established between clades Aziopsis and Phedimus, based on which they can be recognized as isolated genera. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in Monanthes ( Crassulaceae ) based on morphological , chloroplast and nuclear DNA variation
Phylogenetic relationships of all 10 recognized taxa of the genus Monunthes which is endemic to the Canary Islands and Salvage Islands, were investigated using the four data sets: morphology,Expand
Thompsonella and the “Echeveria group” (Crassulaceae): phylogenetic relationships based on molecular and morphological characters
TLDR
Results indicate that only a few genera in the Acre clade are monophyletic and that to establish their generic limits further sampling mainly in the large Echeveria and Sedum genera is needed. Expand
Diversification in insular plants: inferring the phylogenetic relationship in Aeonium (Crassulaceae) using ITS sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA
TLDR
A phylogeny obtained through the use of parsimony agrees to some extent with the sectional division of the genus Aeonium and confirms the position of two newly described species, and suggests the potential importance of reticulate evolution in the genus. Expand
Molecular phylogeny of the genus Kalanchoe (Crassulaceae) inferred from nucleotide sequences of the ITS-1 and ITS-2 regions.
TLDR
The ITS phylogenetic trees show that all African Kalanchoe species form a distinct group within the most derived of the three main clusters, consistent with the view that the center of phylogenetic radiation of the genus is located in Madagascar from where the species have spread into continental Africa.

Phylogenetics and evolution of the Macaronesian members of the genus Aichryson (Crassulaceae) inferred from nuclear and chloroplast sequence data
TLDR
The present study indicates that the biogeographical patterns exhibited by Aichryson appear to be rare, occurring in only one other known genus. Expand
A molecular phylogenetic study of Graptopetalum (Crassulaceae) based on ETS, ITS, RPL16, and TRNL-F nucleotide sequences.
TLDR
The ETS data set had the highest number of parsimony-informative sites, about 30% more than in ITS, but the most fully resolved tree resulted when the four DNA regions were combined, and only four subclades of the tree received moderate to strong bootstrap support. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and evolution of Crassulaceae inferred from matK sequence data.
TLDR
A southern African origin of the family is suggested, with subsequent dispersal northward into the Mediterranean region and two separate lineages of European Crassulaceae subsequently dispersed to North America and underwent substantial diversification. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of the enigmatic angiosperm family Podostemaceae inferred from 18S rDNA and rbcL sequence data.
TLDR
The authors' analyses indicate that Podostemaceae are not closely allied with Crassulaceae or with other members of the Saxifragales clade; their closest relatives, although still uncertain, appear to lie elsewhere in the rosids. Expand
