The second SOL Seminar Online was presented by Richard Olmstead on Molecular phylogeny and classification of Solanaceae: A historical perspective
Abstract. Due to their economic importance, Solanaceae were an early subject of molecular research. Consequently, some early phylogenetic inferences appeared before molecular approaches to phylogeny were common in systematics. Solanaceae was one of the first families to have a family-wide molecular phylogeny based on DNA data. The development of our understanding of Solanaceae phylogeny was built over 30 years to be one of the most completely studied families of their size. This detailed phylogeny has led to a revised classification that reflects evolutionary relationships and to an increased understanding of global patterns of biogeography.
