Systematics and evolution of Thelypodieae (Brassicaceae): progress and perspectives.

We present progress on the phylogeny of Thelypodieae (Brassicaceae). For some clades, like Strepthanthus and their allies, our updated phylogeny includes up to 95% of species described in the group. We discuss the taxonomic placement of several key species in the group, including cases where lack of reciprocal monophyly calls into question some speices. Also, in the light of our updated phylogeny, we explore the tempo and mode of morphological evolution in the Tribe, and some biogeographical and climatic scenarios that could have led to the diversification of key clades in the Tribe.
