Phylogenetic comparative methods improve the selection of characters for generic delimitations in a hyperdiverse Neotropical orchid clade
Taxonomic delimitations are challenging because of the convergent and variable nature of phenotypic traits. This is evident in species-rich lineages, where the ancestral and derived states and their gains and losses are ...
Genus-level taxonomical changes in the Lepanthes affinity (Orchidaceae: Pleurothallidinae)
We propose a new classification of the Lepanthes affinity based on previous studies and our ongoing phylogenetic re-evaluation of the Pleurothallidinae. Fourteen genera are recognized as belonging to the affinity. They are ...
Phylogenetic reassessment of Acianthera (Pleurothallidinae: Orchidaceae)
The phylogenetic relationships within the Acianthera affinity are re-evaluated using Bayesian analyses of nrITS and chloroplast matK sequence data. Emphasis is made on species from the Antilles, Central America and the ...
