Abstract Lobelia glaberrima is a newly described species from mountainous parts of the southern South Island of New Zealand. The morphology of L. glaberrima is most similar to L. macrodon, but it is distinguished from that species by a suite of mainly floral characters. These include L. glaberrima having narrower calyx lobes, a corolla with a shorter tube and smaller lobes, shorter stamens with smaller anthers, a smaller ovary with a shorter style, and a weakly pungent scent. Chloroplast DNA… 
Generic placement in Lobelia and revised taxonomy for New Zealand species previously in Hypsela and Isotoma (Lobeliaceae)
TLDR
A single dispersal event from Australia to the South Island of New Zealand is inferred to have preceded a radiation into four New Zealand species, which differ from their Australian progenitors by the capsule that is now indehiscent due to loss of the apical valves.
Antitropical distribution of Lobelia species (Campanulaceae) between the Ryukyu Archipelago of Japan and Oceania as indicated by molecular data
TLDR
The lineage of L. loochooensis and the five Lobelia species occurring in Oceania demonstrate an antitropical distribution pattern and has likely originated from a dispersal event from Australia to the Ryukyu Archipelago.
Systematics of Lobelioideae (Campanulaceae): review, phylogenetic and biogeographic analyses
Abstract Lobelioideae, the largest subfamily within Campanulaceae, includes 33 genera and approximately1200 species. It is characterized by resupinate flowers with zygomorphic corollas and connate
Revision of the Infrageneric Classification of Lobelia L. (Campanulaceae: Lobelioideae)
TLDR
The infrageneric classification of the cosmopolitan genus Lobelia L. (Campanulaceae) is revised via synthesis of diverse phenotypic data and Monopsis Salisb.
Comparative morphology of the leaf epidermis in Lobelia (Lobelioideae) from China
TLDR
The leaf epidermal morphology of 38 samples, representing 22 Lobelia species from China, was studied and supported the recognition of Pratia merged with Lobelia, and of L. chevalieri as a distinct species.
Lobelia claviflora (Campanulaceae: Lobelioideae), a new species from northern New South Wales, Australia
Lobelia claviflora Albr. & R.W.Jobson sp. nov. is described and illustrated, with notes on distribution, habitat, conservation status and features distinguishing it from closely related species of
The East Asian origin of the giant lobelias.
TLDR
A combination of molecular and phylogenetic sampling is used to reconstruct the cosmopolitan radiation of lobeliads, with special focus on the origin of the giant lobelias, and many details of rapid radiations can be accurately inferred.
Evidence-based review of the taxonomic status of New Zealand's endemic seed plant genera
TLDR
It is argued that the circumscriptions of genera (and higher taxa) should always be monophyletic, preferably with strong support from independent evidence, and several criteria are helpful: phylogeny should be recoverable from the classification hierarchy, genera should be distinctive, ranks should not be redundant and familiar names should be retained if other criteria are met.
Threatened and uncommon plants of New Zealand (2008 revision)
TLDR
Overall, the conservation status of the New Zealand indigenous vascular plant flora is worsening, with 7.6% of this flora now regarded as threatened with extinction.
Taxonomic Delimitation Within New Zealand Lobelioideae
TLDR
It is suggested that the manuscript should be rewritten in a chapters-by- chapters format to facilitate more detailed discussion of the author’s motivations and methods.

The Predominantly South American Clade Of Lobeliaceae
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships within Burmeistera indicate that this genus underwent repeated episodes of rapid diversification when organismal diversification outpaced the accumulation of mutations in this region of chloroplast DNA.
Chromosome numbers of Campanulaceae, iii. Review and Integration of Data for Subfamily Lobelioideae
TLDR
The chromosome number of Apetahia raiateensis (n = 14) is reported here for the first time, on the basis of which the hypothesis that woodiness is apomorphic within the subfamily is supported.
Polyploidy, hybridization and evolution in Pratia (Campanulaceae)
TLDR
The distribution of chromosome races in P. angulata has been plotted and results suggest that although they generally occupy different geographic areas there are large areas of overlap between these chromosome races.
Chromosome numbers, karyotypes, and nuclear DNA variation in Pratia Gaudin (Lobeliaceae)
TLDR
Measurements of nuclear DNA amounts by flow cytometry show that there are large differences between species and also in genome size per haploid set, and the diploid and tetraploid species have more DNA per haploids set than the higher polyploids.
New names and new combinations in Campanulaceae
New names and new combinations are proposed for 15 species of Campanulaceae s.1. that have no legitimate name at that rank in the genus to which they should be assigned. These nomenclatural

TLDR
In this volume, the first thorough account of the family Campanulaceae to be published since 1839, 84 genera are recognised, encompassing 2319 species, 391 subspecies, and 27 named hybrids, and another 8135 names are treated as synonyms.
