ISHS Acta Horticulturae 745: VI International Solanaceae Conference : Genomics Meets Biodiversity

A SUMMARY OF MOLECULAR SYSTEMATIC RESEARCH IN SOLANACEAE: 1982-2006

Authors:   R.G. Olmstead, L. Bohs
Keywords:   chloroplast DNA, phylogeny
Abstract:
A summary of progress in molecular phylogenetic studies of Solanaceae indicates that with over 50 published studies, more than 90% of genera and 37% of species have been sampled. Circumscription of Solanaceae now includes Nolanaceae, Goetzeaceae, Duckeodendron and Sclerophylax. Well-sampled groups include Capsicum, Lycium, Nicotiana, Nolana and Petunia and the clades Anthocercideae, Goetzeoideae and Iochrominae. A major effort currently underway promises extensive sampling of Solanum. Groups that remain poorly sampled include Cestrum, Brunfelsia, Jaltomata, Lycianthes and Juanulloeae.
