Phylogenetic knowledge of the large plant family Acanthaceae has been greatly advanced over the last 2 decades. Studies have demonstrated the existence of several major lineages, most of which have been the focus of subsequent investigation. Missing among these is comprehensive study of the 48 genera currently classified in tribe Ruellieae, a pantropical lineage that includes several species-rich genera. We compared the number of validly published names to current estimates of species richness… Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships among Old World Ruellia L.: A New Classification and Reinstatement of the Genus Dinteracanthus Schinz
TLDR
Ancestral state reconstruction of pollination systems among Old World Ruellia suggest a minimum of two transitions from short-tongued insect pollination to nocturnal moth pollination, one from Short-Tongued Insect to bird pollination and one reversal fromNocturnal moths pollination back to short- tongued insects pollination.

Two new genera of Acanthaceae from tropical Africa
DNA sequence data, macro-morphological evidence and pollen analysis are used to clarify the phylogenetic placement of two African species of Acanthaceae: Schaueria populifolia C.B.Clarke andExpand
The Tetramerium Lineage (Acanthaceae, Justicieae) Revisited: Phylogenetic Relationships Reveal Polyphyly of Many New World Genera Accompanied by Rampant Evolution of Floral Morphology
TLDR
Molecular data confirm monophyly of the Tetramerium lineage (Acanthaceae, Justicieae), a group of nearly 200 species, 75% from the New World (NW) and the remainder from Asia or Africa, and time-calibrate the phylogeny using primary fossil evidence and the larger context of a calibrated phylogeny for Acanthaceae.

Seed Morphology of Ruellieae Species (Acanthaceae) in Brazil and Its Taxonomic Implications
TLDR
The finding that partial loss of seed trichomes is exclusive to one of the two large lineages of Neotropical Ruellia (lineage II) is corroborated and provided a key for those taxa, and suggest the infrageneric placement of unclassified Ruellieae species. Expand
Phylogenetics of New World ‘justicioids’ (Justicieae: Acanthaceae): Major Lineages, Morphological Patterns, and Widespread Incongruence with Classification
TLDR
The results of this study provide a foundation for the placement of other species of New World Justicia that have yet to be sampled for phylogenetic analysis, as well as for future comparative studies of evolutionary processes and revisionary work on this diverse and complex lineage. Expand
A New Species and Lectotypification in Ruellia (Acanthaceae) from the Southeastern Atlantic Forest, Brazil
TLDR
Ruellia capotyra is described as a new species of Acanthaceae from the Atlantic Forest of Brazil, occurring in the states of Rio de Janeiro and Minas Gerais, and an informal IUCN conservation assessment indicated that it should be considered as a threatened species. Expand
The Complete Chloroplast Genomes of Echinacanthus Species (Acanthaceae): Phylogenetic Relationships, Adaptive Evolution, and Screening of Molecular Markers
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships among the four species were clearly resolved and the results supported the recognition of the Sino-Vietnamese Echinacanthus species as a new genus. Expand
Nelsonioideae (Lamiales: Acanthaceae): Revision of Genera and Catalog of Species
TLDR
A taxonomic account of Acanthaceae subfamily Nelsonioideae based on morphological and phylogenetic data treats five genera with 172 species, and two other currently recognized genera, Gynocraterium and Ophiorrhiziphyllon, are included within Staurogyne, and the new combinations are proposed. Expand
A taxonomic revision of Acanthaceae tribe Barlerieae in Angola and Namibia. Part 1
SummaryIn the first part of a taxonomic revision of the tribe Barlerieae (Acanthaceae) in Angola and Namibia, two of the four major clades of the genus Barleria L. are studied in detail, namely subg.Expand
Morphological and ontogenetic studies with inflorescences and flowers of Lepidagathis Willd. (Acanthaceae)
TLDR
The vascularization of the flowers revealed important aspects of the floral evolution of the genus Acanthaceae, showing that the anatomy may retain ancestral characteristics that relate the species. Expand

Phylogenetic Relationships among Acantheae (Acanthaceae): Major Lineages Present Contrasting Patterns of Molecular Evolution and Morphological Differentiation
TLDR
Results of parsimony and Bayesian analyses provided strong support for monophyly of two sub-lineages of Acantheae, referred to here as the ‘one-lipped corolla’ and ‘two-lipping corolla' lineages, reflecting notable differences in corolla morphology. Expand
New molecular and morphological insights prompt transfer of Blechum to Ruellia (Acanthaceae)
TLDR
The genus Blechum is transferred to Ruellia based on morphological similarities, common chromosome numbers, and molecular data, and a preliminary key is provided to distinguish these species, but theBlechum lineage as a whole deserves further attention and fieldwork to determine the precise limits of each taxon. Expand
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
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.

Phylogenetic Relationships among Acanthaceae: Evidence from Two Genomes
TLDR
The combined analysis provides strong support for a single hypothesis of relationships among Acanthaceae sensu stricto (s.s.) and their closest relatives. Expand
Origin of African Physacanthus (Acanthaceae) via Wide Hybridization
TLDR
Molecular and morphological evidence is presented that support origin of the plant genus Physacanthus via “wide hybridization” between members of two distantly related lineages in the large family Acanthaceae, suggesting that heteroplasmy likely predated speciation in the genus. Expand
A cytogenetic study in the Acanthaceae
TLDR
The Acanthaceae are considered by most botanists to have been derived from the Scrophulariaceae or stocks ancestral to them, and the close affinity of some interand intrageneric relationships has been determined through cytological studies on the family. Expand
The taxonomy and biology of Stenosiphonium Nees (Acanthaceae)
TLDR
There is evidence to suggest that all three species of Stenosiphonium are plietesial which may explain the paucity of herbarium collections of both S. setosum and S. wightii. Expand
