The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) is the highest and one of the most extensive plateaus in the world. Phylogenetic, phylogeographic, and ecological studies support plant diversifications on the QTP…
Phylogenetic and biogeographic complexity of Magnoliaceae in the Northern Hemisphere inferred from three nuclear data sets.
Molecular phylogeny of Salix L. (Salicaceae) inferred from three chloroplast datasets and its systematic implications
Salix is a taxonomically difficult genus and its generic limits and infrageneric division are still highly controversial. We employed sequences of the chloroplast rbcL gene, trnD-T spacer and…

The present data reject the geological (tectonic) explanation for the TKL and provide supportive evidence for its role as a climatically driven barrier to present‐day plant dispersal, and lend support to a ‘glacial out‐of‐Hengduan Mts’.

It is shown that horizontal gene transfer is a dynamic process occurring frequently in the early evolution of land plants, and a model of horizontal gene Transfer mechanism in nonvascular and seedless vascular plants is proposed.
Evolutionary history and underlying adaptation of alpine plants on the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau
This issue collected a total of 13 papers related to alpine biodiversity hotspots in the Qinghai–Tibet Plateau and outlined the outlook and direction of future research.
Chloroplast phylogeny and phylogeography of Stellera chamaejasme on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and in adjacent regions.
The 29°N latitudinal line: an important division in the Hengduan Mountains, a biodiversity hotspot in southwest China
The higher species richness and endemism in the southern sub-region showed it to be the core of the Hengduan biodiversity hotspot, a result not unexpected because of the greater extremes of topography and wider diversity of habitats in the northern portion.
Morphological and molecular evidence of natural hybridization between two distantly related Rhododendron species from the Sino-Himalaya
The detection of 15 hybrids indicates that, if Rhododendron underwent rapid radiation in this region, it did so in spite of permeable species barriers, and was asymmetrical, with R. delavayi as the major maternal parent in the hybrid zone.
Dispersals of Hyoscyameae and Mandragoreae (Solanaceae) from the New World to Eurasia in the early Miocene and their biogeographic diversification within Eurasia.
