A community‐derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns
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.
Molecular phylogeny of the fern genus Elaphoglossum (Elaphoglossaceae) based on chloroplast non-coding DNA sequences: contributions of species from the Indian Ocean area.
Phylogenetics and classification of the pantropical fern family Lindsaeaceae
The evolutionary history of the Lindsaeaceae is studied by simultaneously optimizing 55 morphological characters, two plastid genes (rpoC1 and rps4) and three non-coding plASTid intergenic spacers (trnL-F, rps 4-trnS and trnH-psbA) and finding six well-supported and diagnostic clades that can be recognized as genera.
Identifying a mysterious aquatic fern gametophyte
The phylogenetic analyses showed that Süßwassertang is nested within the hemi-epiphytic fern genus Lomariopsis (Lomariopsidaceae) and aligned very close to L. lineata, and it is of great interest to discover that a fern usually known to grow on trees also has gametophytes that thrive in water.

Diversification among the main clades of the lastreopsid ferns was influenced by climatic and geological changes in the southern hemisphere, and taxonomic recognition of Parapolystichum is warranted to preserve the monophyly of Lastreopsis.
Global phylogeny and biogeography of grammitid ferns (Polypodiaceae).
Origins of the fern genus Hymenophyllum (Hymenophyllaceae) in New Caledonia: Multiple independent colonizations from surrounding territories and limited in situ diversification
First insights on the biogeographical history of Phlegmariurus (Lycopodiaceae), with a focus on Madagascar.
AFLP markers provide insights into the evolutionary relationships and diversification of New Caledonian Araucaria species (Araucariaceae).

- Environmental Science, BiologyAmerican journal of botany
It is shown that genetic divergence among the present New Caledonian Araucaria species is low, suggesting recent diversification rather than pre-existence on Gondwana, and hypothesize that speciation is ongoing and/or there are cryptic species in some genetically (sometimes also morphologically) divergent populations.
