Finally Diclinanona is included!

For the pas ten years there has been a discussion about the phylogenetic placement of the small genus Diclinanona amongst Annonaceae researchers. Recently, several parties involved in the discussion teamed up in order to investigate the issue and settle the discussion. The resulting paper of Erkens et al. in the December issue of Taxon not only fixes Diclinanona firmly in the Annoneae (as sister to a clade with Disepalum, Annona and Asimina) but also presents a complete online revision of the three species. With the availability of these molecular data Diclinanona can now also be included in family wide phylogenetic analyses, from which it was excluded so far.
