Subtribal division of Ceropegieae (Apocynaceae-Asclepiadoideae)
Monophyly and sister group relationship of Ceropegieae and Marsdenieae, the two Asclepiadoideae tribes possessing erect pollinia, are confirmed by molecular investigation of non-coding cpDNA markers
Molecular phylogeny of Ceropegia (Asclepiadoideae, Apocynaceae) from Indian Western Ghats
It can be concluded that the classical morphology-based delineation of the two Ceropegia and Brachystelma needs revision to reflect their phylogenetic relationships, which are more in accordance with their geographical origin than with morphology.
It is proposed that the current taxonomy of the Ceropegia genus be maintained in the absence of adequate morphological, anatomical, or karyological characters supporting a taxonomic reclassification of the genus in accordance with the retrieved clades of the phylogenetic analysis.
Universal primers for amplification of three non-coding regions of chloroplast DNA
Six primers for the amplification of three non-coding regions of chloroplast DNA via the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) have been designed and worked for most species tested, which means that they may be used to study the population biology and evolution of plants.
