Revision of the genus Aristolochia (Aristolochiaceae) in Africa, Madagascar and adjacent islands
A taxonomic revision of the genus Aristolochia in Africa, Madagascar, the West African islands, the Comores and the Mascarenes is presented and three clades are revealed, supported by the molecular analysis of the trnL–F region.
Phylogeny of Aristolochiaceae based on parsimony, likelihood, and Bayesian analyses of trnL-trnF sequences
- BiologyPlant Systematics and Evolution
This study addresses the overall generic relationships in Aristolochiaceae and its position in Piperales based on dense taxon sampling and sequence data from the plastid trnL-F region and proposed two subfamilies, Asaroideae and Aristolchioideae, gain maximum statistical support.
