(Oxford University Press, 2013)This paper explores how a lack of taxonomic expertise, and by implication a dearth of taxonomic products such as identification tools, has hindered progress in understanding andmanaging biological invasions. It also ...
Towards a new classification system for legumes: Progress report from the 6th International Legume Conference (Elsevier, 2013)Legume systematists have been making great progress in understanding evolutionary relationships within the Leguminosae (Fabaceae), the third largest family of flowering plants. As the phylogenetic picture has become clearer, ...
Two new species of Trachyandra sect. Liriothamnus (Xanthorrhoeaceae, Asphodeloideae) from the Western and Eastern Cape Provinces of South Africa (2013)Trachyandra eriocarpa and T. bulbosa are two new species from Northern and Eastern Cape Provinces of South Africa. They are placed in T. sect. Liriothamnus based on their wiry roots, the cataphylls not forming membranous ...
Felicia douglasii (Asteraceae-Astereae), a distinctive new species from the Cape Floristic Region, South Africa (Elsevier, 2017)Felicia Cass. (Asteraceae) is the largest of the African members of tribe Astereae, and comprises ±90 species from southern and tropical Africa to Arabia. As currently circumscribed, it is rather weakly diagnosed by the ...
A global infrageneric classification system for the genus Crotalaria (Leguminosae) based on molecular and morphological evidence (Botanischer Garten und Botanisches Museum, 2013)Crotalaria is a large genus of 702 species with its centre of diversity in tropical Africa and Madagascar and secondary radiations in other parts of the world. The current infrageneric classification system is based on ...
(Elsevier, 2017)As a first step towards a comprehensive revision of Pteronia (Asteraceae, Astereae), we present here a taxonomic treatment of the Pteronia camphorata group, in which we recognise three species. The group includes the type ...
(Elsevier, 2013)Resolving the phylogenetic relationships of the deep nodes of papilionoid legumes (Papilionoideae) is essential to understanding the evolutionary history and diversification of this economically and ecologically important ...
Phylogenetic placement and generic re-circumscriptions of the multilocular genera Arenifera, Octopoma and Schlechteranthus (Aizoaceae: Ruschieae): Evidence from anatomical, morphological and plastid DNA data (International Association for Plant Taxonomy (IAPT), 2016)"Ruschieae is the largest tribe in the highly speciose subfamily Ruschioideae (Aizoaceae). A generic-level phylogeny for the tribe was recently produced, providing new insights into relationships between the taxa. Octopoma ...
