A fully resolved backbone phylogeny reveals numerous dispersals and explosive diversifications throughout the history of Asteraceae
This study places the origin of Asteraceae at ∼83 MYA in the late Cretaceous and reveals that the family underwent a series of explosive radiations during the Eocene which were accompanied by accelerations in diversification rates. Expand
A new species of Chresta (Vernonieae, Asteraceae) endemic to the Mata Atlântica Domain, Brazil
This is the first record of a species of Chresta endemic to a phytogeographic domain other than the Cerrado and Caatinga , since those outcrops are included in the Mata Atlântica Domain (Atlantic Forest). Expand
Phylogenomics Yields New Insight Into Relationships Within Vernonieae (Asteraceae)
This study presents the first attempt at studying the phylogeny of Vernonieae using phylogenomics with high support recovering approximately 700 nuclear markers obtained through target capture. Expand
Phylogenomics of the hyperdiverse daisy tribes: Anthemideae, Astereae, Calenduleae, Gnaphalieae, and Senecioneae
Asteraceae account for 10% of all flowering plant species, and 35%–40% of these are in five closely related tribes that total over 10 000 species, which took a phylogenomics approach to resolve evolutionary relationships among these five tribes. Expand
The monotypic genera Irwinia G.M. Barroso, Oiospermum Less., and Pithecoseris Mart. ex DC. are considered synonyms, respectively, of Blanchetia DC., Centratherum Cass., and Chresta Vell. ex DC.,Expand
The Compositae Tree of Life in the age of phylogenomics
A phylogenomics approach using Hyb‐Seq that includes sequencing ∼1000 low‐copy number nuclear markers, plus partial plastomes for large numbers of species, and future plans for incorporating high‐quality reference genomes and transcriptomes to advance systematic and evolutionary studies in the Compositae are discussed.

Evaluation of lung tissue and hilar lymph node concentrations of azithromycin.
Investigation of the lung tissue and pulmonary lymph node penetration of azithromycin after 500 mg daily oral administration for three days in patients undergoing open thoracotomy found tissue and lymph node concentrations persisted after serum concentrations declined. Expand
Free fatty acid levels in habitual coffee drinkers in relation to quantities consumed, sex and age.
There is a significant difference in plasma levels of the free fatty acids (FFA) in habitual coffee drinkers compared with a control group of non- coffee and decaffeinated-coffee drinkers and under the same conditions of coffee consumption. Expand
Diversity of non-glandular trichomes in subtribe Lychnophorinae (Asteraceae: Vernonieae) and taxonomic implications
The present study reveals the great diversity of non-glandular trichomes in Lychnophorinae, and appears to be a valuable characteristic at a lower taxonomic level to identify closely morphologically related species. Expand
An empirical assessment of a single family‐wide hybrid capture locus set at multiple evolutionary timescales in Asteraceae
The Astereaceae Hyb‐Seq probe set is applicable at multiple taxonomic depths, which demonstrates that probe sets do not necessarily need to be lineage‐specific, and influenced resolution and topologies inferred in phylogenetic analyses. Expand
