dc.description.abstract Relationships within the Crotalarieae are explored using DNA sequences (ITS and rbcL) and morphological data and the monophyly of the various genera is assessed. A literature review of chemical characters (mainly alkaloids) was needed in order to evaluate the congruence between molecular, morphological and chemical data and how these patterns should be interpreted within the context of new generic and suprageneric concepts. The DNA study was also aimed at confirming the suspected polyphyly of Lebeckia and Lotononis (as currently circumscribed) and at improving generic circumscriptions. The aim was to propose and formalize new generic concepts for Lebeckia s.l. and Lotononis s.l. in order to ensure that all of the resultant genera are monophyletic. en_US
