Abstract Molecular and morphological data have shown that Bombacoideae and Malvoideae together form a well-supported Malvatheca clade. Phylogenetic relationships in Bombacoideae have been studied, but some genera in Bombax s. l. have not been adequately sampled for sufficiently variable molecular markers. The relationships of Eriotheca, for example, have yet to be resolved. Here, nuclear (ITS) and chloroplast (trnL-F and matK) sequence data from 50 exemplars of Bombacoideae and seven additional… Expand
Revisiting the phylogeny of Bombacoideae (Malvaceae): Novel relationships, morphologically cohesive clades, and a new tribal classification based on multilocus phylogenetic analyses.
TLDR
A new tribal classification of the Bombacoideae subfamily is presented, accompanied by an identification key, and the evolution of selected morphological traits are analyzed, using ML reconstructions of their ancestral states to identify possible synapomorphies for major clades. Expand
Do chromosome numbers reflect phylogeny? New counts for Bombacoideae and a review of Malvaceae s.l.
TLDR
The phylogenetic signal for chromosome number supports the idea of an ancient WGD and further neopolyploidy events as important evolutionary trends for the Bombacoideae. Expand
On the relevance of molecular tools for taxonomic revision in Malvales, Malvaceae s.l., and Dombeyoideae.
TLDR
An overview of changes to the taxonomy of Malvales is presented, and three possible taxonomic schemes as part of an ongoing revision of the Mascarene Dombeyoideae are proposed. Expand
Comparative study of three species of Malvatheca (Bombacoideae and Malvoideae (Malvaceae sensu lato)using Morphological, Anatomical and RAPD-PCR analyses.
TLDR
Three species are selected because they are commonly present in Egypt, and exhibit high medicinal values and contain cotton Silk fiber in their fruits which is valuable in fabric industry and investigated their genomic DNA banding patterns using randomly amplified bands (RAPD- PCR). Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Ceiba Mill. (Malvaceae, Bombacoideae)
TLDR
A well sampled phylogeny of the iconic genus Ceiba, one of the most characteristic tree genera of neotropical Seasonally Dry Tropical Forest (SDTF), is provided, demonstrating a clear phylogenetic signal for biome preference and geographic structure in Ceiba. Expand
Molecular systematics of Abelmoschus (Malvaceae) and genetic diversity within the cultivated species of this genus based on nuclear ITS and chloroplast rpL16 sequence data
TLDR
Based on analysis of nuclear internal transcribed spacer ITS and chloroplast rpL16 sequence data, Abelmoschus is resolved as a monophyletic clade and its relationship with the genus Hibiscus and other related Malvaceae is resolved. Expand
Eriotheca estevesiae (Malvaceae: Bombacoideae): A new species from the cerrado vegetation of Brazil
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses based on internal transcriber spacer (ITS) sequence data support the new species as sister to E. pubescens, a widespread species in central Brazil, which has stellate trichomes on the leaflets, a character not found in other species of Eriotheca. Expand
A New Deciduous Species of Pachira (Malvaceae: Bombacoideae) from a Seasonally Dry Tropical Forest in Northeastern Brazil
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis using ITS data shows that P. moreirae is a member of a Brazilian extra-Amazonian clade of Pachira that also includes P. glabra and P. retusa, a genus that mostly comprises evergreen species. Expand
Comparative cytomolecular analyses reveal karyotype variability related to biogeographic and species richness patterns in Bombacoideae (Malvaceae)
TLDR
The results provide support to the hypothesis of karyotypic stability in Bombacoideae and provide insights into the systematics and evolution of Bombacoidae in comparison with other Malvaceae species. Expand
Karyotypic stability in the paleopolyploid genus Ceiba Mill. (Bombacoideae, Malvaceae)
TLDR
Contrary to the intra- and interspecific chromosome number diversity reported for Ceiba species in the literature, the findings suggest chromosome number stability in four of the five lineages within the genus for which data are available. Expand

Phylogenetic relationships of Malvatheca (Bombacoideae and Malvoideae; Malvaceae sensu lato) as inferred from plastid DNA sequences.
TLDR
The results suggest that the Malvoideae originated in the Neotropics and that a mangrove taxon dispersed across the Pacific from South America to Australasia and later radiated out of Australasia to give rise to the ca. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of the Malvadendrina clade (Malvaceae s.l.) based on plastid DNA sequences
TLDR
DNA sequences of four plastid regions are used to study relationships within Malvadendrina, one of the two major clades of Malvaceae s.l. and resolve the placement of two problematic taxa: Nesogordonia (in Dombeyoideae) and Mortoniodendron (in Tilioideae). Expand
Phylogeny of the core Malvales: evidence from ndhF sequence data.
TLDR
There has been extensive homoplasy in characters previously used to delineate major taxonomic groups in core Malvales, and it is suggested that /Malvatheca do not have as a synapormophy monothecate anthers, as has been previously supposed but, instead, may be united by dithecate, transversely septate (polysporangiate) anothers. Expand
Support for an expanded family concept of Malvaceae within a recircumscribed order Malvales: a combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL DNA sequences
TLDR
Sequence analyses of the plastid genes atp B and rbc L support an expanded order Malvales and propose to merge Sterculiaceae, Tiliaceae and Bombacaceae with Malvaceae and subdivide this enlarged family Malvoideae into nine subfamilies based on molecular, morphological, and biogeographical data. Expand
Circumscription of Malvaceae (Malvales) as determined by a preliminary cladistic analysis of morphological, anatomical, palynological, and chemical characters
TLDR
Malvaceae is redefined to refer to the most recent common ancestor of plants previously considered to be “Tiliaceae,” “Sterculiaceae, “Bombacaceae” and Malvaceae, and all of the descendants of that ancestor. Expand
Biogeography and floral evolution of baobabs (Adansonia, Bombacaceae) as inferred from multiple data sets.
TLDR
The phylogeny does not permit unambiguous reconstruction of floral evolution but suggests the plausible hypothesis that hawkmoth pollination was ancestral in Adansonia and that there were two parallel switches to pollination by mammals in the genus. Expand
New Species and Combinations of Catostemma and Pachira (Bombacaceae) from the Venezuelan Guayana
TLDR
This paper lays the final groundwork for publication of this treatment of the Flora of the Venezuelan Guayana and includes two new species, Catostemma durifolius and Pachira yapacanae, and nineteen new combinations in Pchira, into which all Venezuelan Guayanan species of Pochota, Bombacopsis, and Rhodognaphalopsis are placed.

Structure and evolution of the androecium in the Malvatheca clade (Malvaceae s.l.) and implications for Malvaceae and Malvales
TLDR
The data indicate that i) elongate, sessile androecial units are ancestral in the Malvatheca clade, that ii) an obdiplostemonous floral ground plan is a synapomorphy for theMalvaceae, and that iii) diplostemony is most likely ancestral inThe Malvales. Expand
Ribosomal ITS sequences and plant phylogenetic inference.
TLDR
Despite the near-universal usage of ITS sequence data in plant phylogenetic studies, its complex and unpredictable evolutionary behavior reduce its utility for phylogenetic analysis, and it is suggested that more robust insights are likely to emerge from the use of single-copy or low-copy nuclear genes.
