Abstract The taxonomy and phylogenetic position of Thomandersia were investigated through a comprehensive study of herbarium specimens and analyses of DNA sequence and non-sequence data. Phylogenetic analysis of all available evidence placed Thomandersia within Lamiales but outside Acanthaceae, the family in which it has traditionally been classified. Moreover, Thomandersia is shown to be a morphologically distinct clade, lying outside all currently circumscribed families of Lamiales. We… Expand
Phylogenetic Analysis of Acanthaceae in Egypt Based on Morphological Criteria
TLDR
There is strong support for monophyly of Justicia, Pseuderanthemum and Ruellia, lineages as a group and for the inclusion of Jacobinia and Justicia in one monophyletic group and the presence of Pachstachys within Justicia lineage are supported. Expand
Phylogenetic placement, delimitation, and relationships among genera of the enigmatic Nelsonioideae (Lamiales: Acanthaceae).
We took a two-tiered approach to test monophyly of Nelsonioideae and place the group within Lamiales, and to determine relationships among taxa within the group. Phylogenetic analysis of a moleculaExpand
Toward a comprehensive understanding of phylogenetic relationships among lineages of Acanthaceae s.l. (Lamiales).
TLDR
This study sampled all known lineages of Acanthaceae including Andrographideae and used sequence data from nrITS and four chloroplast noncoding regions, and parsimony and Bayesian methods of analysis to strongly support most aspects of relationships. Expand
Phenetic Analysis of Morphological and Molecular Traits in Acanthaceae Juss
TLDR
The phenetic analysis of both morphological and molecular attributes clarified the segregation of genus Avicennia as a distinct identity away from Acanthaceae and indicated that the used morphologically and ISSR criteria is likely to be useful and valuable taxonomic traits. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships, systematics, and biology of carnivorous Lamiales, with special focus on the genus Genlisea (Lentibulariaceae)
TLDR
This analysis of the rapidly evolving trnK/matK, trnL-F and rps16 chloroplast regions enabled the authors to infer more precise phylogenetic hypotheses for the Lamiales tree, and the multiple independent evolution of the carnivorous syndrome is strongly supported by all analyses and topological tests. Expand
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. Expand
A Morphometrics-Based Phylogeny of the Temperate Gondwanan Mite Harvestmen (Opiliones, Cyphophthalmi, Pettalidae)
TLDR
A phylogenetic estimation of the temperate Gondwanan mite harvestman family Pettalidae was conducted using 143 morphological variables, using custom algorithms to do pairwise comparisons between characters and identify sets of dependent characters, which were collapsed using principal components analysis. Expand
A molecular phylogeny and classification of Bignoniaceae.
TLDR
Parsimony inference suggests that the family originated in the neotropics, with at least five dispersal events leading to the Old World representatives. Expand
A MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY AND CLASSIFICATION OF BIGNONIACEAE 1
This paper is dedicated to the memory of Al Gentry, Bignoni-aceae scholar; without his tremendous energy and insights, this study would not have been possible. Bignoniaceae are predominantly aExpand
Phylogeny and biogeography in Solanaceae, Verbenaceae and Bignoniaceae: a comparison of continental and intercontinental diversification patterns
TLDR
A comparison of clades in each family shows success in most clades at dispersing to, and diversifying in, North America and/or the Caribbean, a mix of adaptation to novel ecological zones and niche conservation, and no association between long-distance dispersal and fleshy, animal-dispersed fruits.

TLDR
Morphological and molecular phylogenetic investigations support the resurrection of Thomandersiaceae, a family of isolated phylogenetic position with a large number of molecular and morphological autapomorphies. Expand
Taxonomy, phylogeny and biogeography of Lindenbergia (Scrophulariaceae)
TLDR
The position of the genus within the Scrophulariaceae is analysed, and it is concluded that Lindenbergia belongs in the tribe Gratioleae, and 12 species are recognized. Expand

The tropical ancestry of the family, the switch from a woody to a herbaceous life form, and the position of critical taxa, such as Swertia and Halenia or Tripterospermum, are discussed. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of Biebersteinia Stephan (Geraniaceae) inferred from rbcL and atpB sequence comparisons
TLDR
B Biebersteinia is on a long branch on its own which, given the particular combination of apomorphic morphological characters, justifies familial status and indicates strong support for a position nested within Sapindales. Expand
Floral anatomy of Thomandersia (Lamiales), with particular reference to the nature of the retinaculum and extranuptial nectaries
TLDR
It is found that Thomandersia shares a range of characters with each of the families to which it might be sister-group, and that some of these primary homologies must therefore be homoplastic. Expand
The Enigmatic Tribe Whitfieldieae (Acanthaceae): Delimitation and Phylogenetic Relationships Based on Molecular and Morphological Data
TLDR
Relationships of the enigmatic genera Whitfieldia, Chlamydacanthus, and Lankesteria (Acanthaceae) were examined using molecular sequence data for two chloroplast loci for these and a sample of taxa representing all major lineages within the family and a number of morphological synapomorphies for Whitfieldieae were proposed.

Classification of Strobilanthinae (Acanthaceae): Trying to classify the unclassifiable?
TLDR
A morphological cladistic analysis of the southern Indian and Sri Lankan Strobilanthinae demonstrates significant limitations of all three historical approaches to the classification of the group and suggests that any attempt to provide an informative formal classification of Strobils will be problematic.
