A community‐derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns
TLDR
A modern, comprehensive classification for lycophytes and ferns, down to the genus level, utilizing a community‐based approach, that uses monophyly as the primary criterion for the recognition of taxa, but also aims to preserve existing taxa and circumscriptions that are both widely accepted and consistent with the understanding of pteridophyte phylogeny.
Evidence that a West-East admixed population lived in the Tarim Basin as early as the early Bronze Age
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Xiaohe people were an admixture from populations originating from both the West and the East, implying that the Tarim Basin had been occupied by an admixed population since the early Bronze Age, which is the earliest genetic evidence of an admixtures population settled in theTarim Basin.
Phylogeny of Chinese Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae) based on chloroplast DNA sequence data (trnL-F and rps4-trnS)
TLDR
Three subclades resolved within Polystichum sensu stricto (s.s.) clade do not correspond with recent sectional classifications, and it is outlined the issues relevant to a new classification for the genus.
Genetic characteristics and migration history of a bronze culture population in the West Liao-River valley revealed by ancient DNA
TLDR
Climate change is an important factor, which drove the population migration during the Bronze Age in northern China, and the local genetic continuity did not seem to be affected by outward migration, although more data are needed especially from other ancient populations to determine the influence of return migration on genetic continuity.
Phylogenetics of Chinese Dryopteris (Dryopteridaceae) based on the chloroplast rps4-trnS sequence data
TLDR
This work represents the first molecular systematic analyses of Chinese Dryopteris, and the next steps necessary to recognize new subgenera of the genus are proposed.
Analysis of ancient human mitochondrial DNA from the Xiaohe cemetery: insights into prehistoric population movements in the Tarim Basin, China
BackgroundThe Tarim Basin in western China, known for its amazingly well-preserved mummies, has been for thousands of years an important crossroad between the eastern and western parts of Eurasia.
Dated phylogeny and dispersal history of the butterfly subfamily Nymphalinae (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae)
TLDR
The biogeographic history indicates that temperature changes and host-plant diversification may have facilitated the dispersals of this butterfly subfamily, with accelerated global colonization during the middle to late Miocene.
Ancient DNA from nomads in 2500-year-old archeological sites of Pengyang, China
TLDR
Results show that these ancient people from Pengyang present a close genetic affinity to nomadic people, indicating that northern nomads had reached the Central Plain area of China nearly 2500 years ago.
Asian origin for Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae) based on rbcL sequences
TLDR
The phylogenetic and divergence time estimation results lead us to suggest that Polystichum s.l. originated in Asia in the late Late Cretacous and migrated into other places in the world in early Eocene.
