A karyological survey of Asclepiadoideae, Periplocoideae, and Secamonoideae, and evolutionary considerations within Apocynaceae s.
Asclepiadeae classification: evaluating the phylogenetic relationships of New World Asclepiadoideae (Apocynaceae).
Here we provide a unified classification for the Apocynaceae, which consists of 424 genera distributed among five subfamilies: Rauvolfioideae, Apocynoideae, Periplocoideae, Secamonoideae, and Asclepiadoideae.
Hier stellen wir eine kombinierte Kiassifikation vor fur die Apocynaceae, mit 424 Gattungen, die in f[ddot{u}]nf Unterfamilien gegliedert sind: Rauvolfioideae, Apocynoideae, Periplocoideae, Secamonoideae und Asclepiadoideae.
Therefore, the statement of Kunze (1996: 576) that "the jump from sticky tetrads to well-defined pollinia could be considered to be quite large," which was used as a justification for separating the Periplocoideae and the Asclepiadoideae at the level of family, is unjustified.
The staminal, pollinial, and coronal data given by Safwat (1962) which has been widely and uncritically used by other workers is open to differing interpretation and does not necessarily support a monophyletic line from the Apocynaceae through the Periplocoideae and Secamonoideae to the Asclepiadoideae.
That is, the equal locular development TABULAR DATA OMITTED of the Plumerioideae could have given rise to the four-pollinial state in Secamone while the trend towards the underdevelopment of the two adaxial locules in the Apocynoideae (Demeter, 1922) could have resulted, if taken to its ultimate conclusion, in the two-locular state found in the Asclepiadoideae.
