Aroid Evolution

Back in March David Hogarth posted on the Forum regarding Arum evolution, but my reply post seems never to have been picked up on:



Dear David,

If you mean only Arum (as opposed to the entire family), there are a few recently published molecular studies that are beginning to shed light on the origins of the genus:

Phylogenetic Analysis Informed by Geological History Mediterranean Basin Araceae - [Systematic Biology 57(2), 269–285] - Mansion et al 2008
Molecular phylogeny of the genus Arum inferred from multi-locus sequence data and AFLPs -[Taxon 59(2), 405–415] - Linz et al 2010
Reproduction of the West Mediterranean endemic Arum pictum on Corsica - [Plant Systematics and Evolution 287(3), 179-187] - Quilichini et al 2010
Phylogenetics and biogeography of Arum - unravelling its evolutionary history - [Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society 163, 14–32] - Espíndrola et al. 2010

I can send you these as pdf files if this is the sort of thing you are seeking.

Very best
