In this study we investigate the large and diverse Rubiaceae-Gardenieae and closely related tribes Bertiereae, Coffeeae, Cremasporeae, Octotropideae, and Pavetteae. Some of the tribes or groups have been shown to be monophyletic and strongly supported, but the phylogeny of this large complex is still far from being satisfactorily elucidated particularly for Gardenieae, both in terms of intertribal relationships as well as tribal delimitations. We reconstruct the phylogeny of the complex using…

Molecular phylogenetics and generic assessment in the tribe Pavetteae (Rubiaceae)
TLDR
This is the first phylogenetic study focused on the Pavetteae, one of the most species-rich and morphologically diverse tribes within the coffee family (Rubiaceae) and the largest paleotropical genus Tarenna is shown not to be monophyletic.
Molecular phylogeny of Atractocarpus (Rubiaceae): taxonomic implications for several New Caledonian Gardenieae species
TLDR
The monophyly of Atractocarpus is tested and the phylogenetic placement of the Randia and Gardenia species with long imbricated stipules within Gardenieae is assessed, providing a mostly supported consensus tree topology of the Porterandia group.
Phylogeny of the Neotropical element of the Randia clade (Gardenieae, Rubiaceae, Gentianales)
Background and aims – Generic limits of the tropical tribe Gardenieae (Ixoroideae, Rubiaceae) have partly remained unsettled. We produced a new phylogeny of the Randia clade, with emphasis on its
Neotropical Rubiaceae: Synthesis of Chromosome Data from Costa Rican Taxa, with Insights on the Systematics of the Family1
TLDR
The present study includes the first chromosome counts reported for the tribes Cordiereae and Hillieae, as well as for 10 genera and 27 species, providing new aspects of Rubiaceae systematics.
Taxonomic revision of the genus Massularia (Rubiaceae, Gardenieae), with a new species from Central Africa
TLDR
A comprehensive revision of the genus Massularia is given and a new Rubiaceae species from Central African Republic, Cameroon and Gabon is described and illustrated, distinguished from M. acuminata by its smaller leaves and flowers.
Settling a family feud: a high-level phylogenomic framework for the Gentianales based on 353 nuclear genes and partial plastomes.
TLDR
The higher-level phylogenetic relationships within Gentianales are confidently resolved and the division of Rubiaceae into two subfamilies is supported: Cinchonoideae and Rubioideae.
Embryology of some flowers of the Gardenieae complex (Rubiaceae).
TLDR
The results achieved in this study show that dioecy originated from homoecy in these species, since the unisexual flowers conserve some characteristics of the perfect flowers.
Specialization to ultramafic substrates and narrow endemism of Cyclophyllum (Rubiaceae) in New Caledonia: contribution of novel species to the understanding of these singular patterns
TLDR
Seven new species, all endemic to New Caledonia, are described, which present a very interesting pattern of narrow endemism probably resulting from adaptation(s) to ultramafic substrates and should be considered for conservation.
Structural and histochemical foliar traits assessing taxonomy of Rubiaceae species occurring in the Brazilian Atlantic Forest
TLDR
Trichome type, trichome surface ornamentation, vascular system organization, type and location of mineral inclusions and sinuosity of the anticlinal wall of the epidermal cells supported species differentiation.
Chloroplast genomes of Rubiaceae: Comparative genomics and molecular phylogeny in subfamily Ixoroideae
TLDR
The main objectives of this study are to gain insight in chloroplast genome evolution in the Rubiaceae (Ixoroideae) through efficient methodology for de novo assembly of plastid genomes; and to test the efficiency of mining SNPs in the nuclear genome of Ixoroidae based on the use of a coffee reference genome to produce well-supported nuclear trees.

Phylogenetic relationships and new tribal delimitations in subfamily Ixoroideae (Rubiaceae)
TLDR
A revised tribal classification, including the description of five new tribes, Airospermeae, Augusteae, Scyphiphoreae, Steenisieae and Trailliaedoxeae is provided, to resolve the phylogeny and assess the tribal delimitations in the expanded Ixoroideae.
Phylogeny of the Gardenieae (Rubiaceae)
Abstract The phylogeny of Gardenieae (Rubiaceae) is evaluated using 70 morphological and anatomical characters and 81 terminal taxa. After successive reweighting of the characters and modified
Combined phylogenetic analysis in the Rubiaceae-Ixoroideae: morphology, nuclear and chloroplast DNA data.
TLDR
The combined analysis resulted in higher resolution compared to the separate analyses, exemplifying that combined analyses can remedy the incapability of one data set to resolve portions of a phylogeny.
Phylogeny of Gardenieae (Rubiaceae) based on chloroplast DNA sequences from the rps16 intron and trnL(UAA)‐F(GAA) intergenic spacer
TLDR
The results indicate that Gardenieae is polyphyletic and that genera included in the subtribe Diplosporinae should be transferred to the Coffeeae and Octotropideae.
Molecular phylogeny and taxonomic revision of the Philippine endemic Villaria Rolfe (Rubiaceae)
TLDR
Parsimony and Bayesian analyses of the combined plastid dataset strongly support the inclusion of Villaria in Octotropideae as well as monophyly of the genus, but the molecular results do not conform to the current informal groups of the tribe delimited by fruit size, ovule position, number of seeds and exotesta thickenings.
Phylogeny of Tricalysia (Rubiaceae) and its Relationships with Allied Genera Based on Plastid DNA Data: Resurrection of the Genus Empogona1
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of Tricalysia and these allied taxa are investigated further using sequence data from four plastid regions (trnL-F intron and intergenic spacer, rpL16 intron, accD-psa1 intergenicSpacer, and PetD) and demonstrate that Tricalsia sensu Robbrecht is not monophyletic.
Molecular phylogenetic analysis of the tribe Alberteae (Rubiaceae), with description of a new genus, Razafimandimbisonia
TLDR
The genus Alberta is found to be paraphyletic as presently circumscribed and the new genus Razafimandimbisonia Kainul is proposed by C. & B. Bremer to accommodate the Malagasy species.
Phylogeny of the Neotropical Alibertia group (Rubiaceae), with emphasis on the genus Alibertia, inferred from ITS and 5S ribosomal DNA sequences.

  • 2000
Phylogenetic relationships of 38 species of the Alibertia group (Rubiaceae) and two outgroup species were investigated using the nuclear ribosomal 5S nontranscribed spacer (5S-NTS) and the internal
Searching for the relatives of Coffea (Rubiaceae, Ixoroideae): the circumscription and phylogeny of Coffeeae based on plastid sequence data and morphology.
TLDR
The circumscription of Coffeeae (Rubiaceae) and phylogenetic relationships within the tribe were evaluated using sequence data from four plastid regions and a morphological data set and support an enlarged circumscription for Coffeeae, containing 11 genera.
Phylogenetic relationships among species of the neotropical genus Randia (Rubiaceae, Gardenieae) inferred from molecular and morphological data
TLDR
It is concluded that Randia is comprised of several distinct groups, each with its own geographical distribution and one group of Mexican, Central American, and Antillean Randia, including the type species, can be recognized as Randia in a strict sense.
