Comparative phylogeography of unglaciated eastern North America
Regional phylogeographical studies involving co‐distributed animal and plant species have been conducted for several areas, most notably for Europe and the Pacific Northwest of North America. UntilExpand

Starch Gel Electrophoresis of Ferns: A Compilation of Grinding Buffers, Gel and Electrode Buffers, and Staining Schedules
The homosporous pteridophytes have been largely uninvestigated by electrophoresis, despite the fact that they offer many exciting research possibilities (Soltis et al., 1980). The paucity ofExpand

Ancestral polyploidy in seed plants and angiosperms
Whole-genome duplication (WGD), or polyploidy, followed by gene loss and diploidization has long been recognized as an important evolutionary force in animals, fungi and other organisms, especiallyExpand

The age and diversification of the angiosperms re-revisited.
UNLABELLED PREMISE OF THE STUDY It has been 8 years since the last comprehensive analysis of divergence times across the angiosperms. Given recent methodological improvements in estimatingExpand

The earliest angiosperms: evidence from mitochondrial, plastid and nuclear genomes
Angiosperms have dominated the Earth's vegetation since the mid-Cretaceous (90 million years ago), providing much of our food, fibre, medicine and timber, yet their origin and early evolution haveExpand

Chloroplast DNA intraspecific phylogeography of plants from the Pacific Northwest of North America
Molecular studies of plants from the Pacific Northwest of North America suggest a recurrent pattern of genetic differentiation and geographic structuring. In each of five angiosperms and one fernExpand

The evolution of the SEPALLATA subfamily of MADS-box genes: a preangiosperm origin with multiple duplications throughout angiosperm history.
Members of the SEPALLATA (SEP) MADS-box subfamily are required for specifying the "floral state" by contributing to floral organ and meristem identity. SEP genes have not been detected in gymnospermsExpand

Darwin's abominable mystery: Insights from a supertree of the angiosperms
Angiosperms are among the major terrestrial radiations of life and a model group for studying patterns and processes of diversification. As a tool for future comparative studies, we compiled aExpand

Advances in the study of polyploidy since Plant speciation
Summary Enormous strides have been made in the study of polyploidy over the last 20 yr. Here, we highlight some of these discoveries and note where our understanding of polyploid evolution hasExpand
