Abstract Results of molecular analysis compared with morphological studies were used for reclassification of the Angraecumalliance (Orchidaceae). For the purpose of this study we sequenced the ITS region (ITS1-5.8S-ITS2) of nrDNA representing nuclear genome and the plastid region trnL-F (including intron of trnL gene and trnL-trnF intergenic spacer). The ITS matrix includes 97 samples representing 86 species and the trnL-F matrix includes 94 samples representing 86 species. We focus mainly on…

Systématique évolutive et biogéographie de Angraecum (Orchidaceae, Angraecinae) à Madagascar
TLDR
A new phylogeny of Angraecum is presented based on chloroplast sequence data, nuclear ribosomal data, morphological characters and phylogenetic trees and dated divergence times of the phylogeny to evaluate which traits or character states are associated to speciation rates, and inferred ancestral states of these characters.
Diversification of Angraecum (Orchidaceae, Vandeae) in Madagascar: Revised Phylogeny Reveals Species Accumulation through Time Rather than Rapid Radiation
TLDR
A new phylogeny of Angraecum is presented based on chloroplast sequence data, nuclear ribosomal data, and 39 morphological characters from 194Angraecinae species of which 69 were newly sampled, and the newly described character, position of the labellum (uppermost and lowermost), was the main character delimiting clades within a monophyletic AngraECum sensu stricto.
Afropectinariella (Vandeae, Orchidaceae), a new genus of the Angraecum alliance
TLDR
A new genus, Afropectinariella M.Simo & Stévart, is described and the following combinations are made: Afropectsiniella atlantica (StÉvart & Droissart) M. simo &StéVart, Afrospaniella doratophylla (Summerh.) M. Simo&StévArt, and Afropectingia subulata (Lindl).
Morphometrics and molecular phylogenetics of Angraecum section Dolabrifolia (Orchidaceae, Angraecinae)
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses indicated that section Dolabrifolia forms a well-supported clade related to the continental African members of section Pectinaria, and morphometric data revealed five distinct groups, of which four correspond to currently recognized species, while the fifth represents a taxonomic novelty.
Phylogenetic climatic niche conservatism and evolution of climatic suitability in Neotropical Angraecinae (Vandeae, Orchidaceae) and their closest African relatives
TLDR
A significant level of PNC is confirmed in Orchidaceae, even within taxa exhibiting a transatlantic disjunction, and the evolution of climatic suitability indicated that the adaptation to various climatic conditions is not a factor that has driven speciation within orchids studied.
NEW COMBINATIONS AND OTHER TAXONOMIC CHANGES FOR THE FORTHCOMING ‘FLORE DES MASCAREIGNES’ ORCHIDACEAE ACCOUNTS
TLDR
Taxonomic research on the orchid flora of the Mascarenes (Mauritius, Réunion and Rodrigues) has a long and rich history and the archipelago has been more intensively studied than the much larger neighbouring island of Madagascar.
Review on molecular markers for identification of Orchids
TLDR
This study reviews most of the DNA fragments that have been used as taxon identifiers in researches conducted on Orchidaceae in order to assess potential molecular markers and metric measurements for the identification of orchid species.
New species and nomenclatural changes in Angraecum (Orchidaceae) from Madagascar
Three new species: Angraecum archangelicum, A. polyphemus and A. rotundifolium are described for the first time. Pectinariella is evaluated; a case is made to keep it at subgeneric level and the

An overview of the phylogenetic relationships within Epidendroideae inferred from multiple DNA regions and recircumscription of Epidendreae and Arethuseae (Orchidaceae).
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships within the epidendroid orchids with emphasis on tribes Epidendreae and Arethuseae were assessed with parsimony and model-based analyses of individual and combined DNA sequence data, finding a well-resolved and supported consensus.
Phylogenetics and biogeography of Mascarene angraecoid orchids (Vandeae, Orchidaceae).
Cytotaxonomy of the monopodial orchids of the African and Malagasy regions
TLDR
It appears questionable whether Angraecum, as presently conceived, is a ‘natural’ genus, and further chromosomal and other taxonomic evidence is needed to substantiate the challenge to the present views.
Molecular systematics of Iridaceae: evidence from four plastid DNA regions.
TLDR
In the combined tree, all subfamilies were resolved as monophyletic, except Nivenioidae that formed a grade in which Ixioideae were embedded, and this subfamily also lacks clear morphological synapomorphies and is highly heterogeneous, so it is difficult to develop a strong case on nonmolecular grounds for their monophyly.
Molecular phylogenetics of Vandeae (Orchidaceae) and the evolution of leaflessness.
TLDR
A change in leaf morphology, monopodial growth habit, and aeration complexes for gas exchange in photosynthetic roots seem to be the most important characters in making the evolutionary transition to leaflessness.
Molecular Phylogenetics of Neotropical Leafless Angraecinae (Orchidaceae): Reevaluation of Generic Concepts
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships of leafless Neotropical Angraecinae indicate that Harrisella, Polyradicion, and Campylocentrum filiforme (Sw.) Cogn.
Systematics of the Genus Angraecum (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
This new study was a great improvement over the former one, for it included a systematic key to the various sections which had grown to thirteen in number, and was primarily designed to accommodate species reported only from Madagascar and from the neighbouring islands.
What does morphology tell us about orchid relationships?--a cladistic.
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of Orchidaceae was undertaken for 98 genera using 71 morphological apomorphies based on a reconsideration of previous character analyses and newly discovered variation, revealing significant amount of structure and most traditionally recognized subfamilies are supported as monophyletic.
Classification and Phylogeny in the Orchidacea
TLDR
The nomenclature of tribes and subtribes in the Orchidaceae is reviewed, and a different delineation of the Neottie and Epidendreae is proposed, and the need for further revision is recognized.
DNA data and archidaceae systematics: A new phylogenetic classification
TLDR
A new phylogenetic classification of Orchidaceae is proposed that accords with these newly discovered relationships and should help to focus other areas of orchid research and stimulate the creation of new hypotheses that will direct orchid researchers to new questions.
