The phylogenies and evolutionary history of the Portullugo Clade (Caryophyllales).

The Portullugo clade in the Caryophyllales includes both CAM and C4 plants and radiations in many of the world's deserts and dryland areas, including the cacti, Australian Calandrinia, and South African Anacampseros. We are looking at the evolution of this group using targeted sequence capture data from many of the gene families involved in CAM photosynthesis. These data allow us to resolve many parts of the phylogeny of the Portullugo clade, including the relationships of closely related species, while other nodes, such as the sister to the Cactaceae, remain problematic.
