Abstract in another language

The genus Cynanchum, best known by leafy and stem-succulent twiners from Africaund Madagascar, has seen considerable taxonomic changes within the last two decades.On the one hand many New World taxa were excluded from Cynanchum, on the other handthe circumscription of Old World Cynanchum (essentially from Africa, India and China) wasmuch extended, driven by the enlarged availability of molecular data. The work presented herereviews the latest taxonomical changes that culminated in a recently published work proposingthe inclusion of predominantly Asian taxa ( Glossonema, Graphistemma, Holostemma, Metalepis, Metaplexis, Odontanthera, Pentarrhinum, Raphistemma and Seshagiria) in Cynanchum.Presumably, the latter action completed the necessary taxonomic rearrangements in Cynanchum. Today, Cynanchum comprises ca. 250 species, and 48 generic names are treated assynonyms of the genus.
