Ancient allopolyploidy in the everlasting daisies (Asteraceae: Gnaphalieae): Complex relationships among extant clades
Origin and relationships of the austral genus Abrotanella (Asteraceae) inferred from DNA sequences
A phylogenetic analysis of 39 accessions that included most species of the small austral genus Abrotanella and putative relatives including Blennosperma, Crocidium and Ischnea suggests that the BlennOSpermatinae are polyphyletic.
Checklist of dicotyledons, gymnosperms, and pteridophytes naturalised or casual in New Zealand: Additional records 1997–1998
Nine species are reported as additional or newly substantiated fully naturalised records for the flora of New Zealand during the 2‐year period 1997–1998, and thirty‐eight additional species that were previously known from few collections are given extended distributions.
Phylogeny and biogeography of Craspedia (Asteraceae: Gnaphalieae) based on ITS, ETS and psbA-trnH sequence data
The single lineage of New Zealand Craspedia and the low divergences between Australian and New ZealandCraspedia samples are consistent with the derivation of New Zealander's species via a single dispersal event from south-east Australia in the Late Tertiary or Quaternary.
Phylogenetic implications of trans-specific chloroplast DNA sequence polymorphism in New Zealand Gnaphalieae (Asteraceae)
The New Zealand endemic species of Gnaphalieae (Asteraceae) present a bewildering array of morphological forms recalcitrant to phylogenetic analysis using molecular or traditional characters, which suggest a complex set of interrelationships among extant species and genera as currently circumscribed.
PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS IN AUSTRALASIAN GNAPHALIEAE (COMPOSITAE) INFERRED FROM ITS SEQUENCES
Abstract Analyses of ITS sequences of Australasian Gnaphalieae reveal at least six distinct lineages of Gnaphalieae in New Zealand. Our results suggest that the New Zealand species of Craspedia form…
Comparative leaf anatomy of New Zealand and Tasmanian Inuleae (Compositae)

It is shown that leaf anatomy data provide characters which are taxonomically useful in classification of Inuleae.
Evolution and biogeography of Pleurophyllum (Astereae, Asteraceae), a small genus of megaherbs endemic to the subantarctic islands.
- S. Wagstaff, I. Breitwieser, Motomi Ito
- Environmental Science, GeologyAmerican-Eurasian journal of botany
Support is summarized for the hypothesis that Pleurophyllum survived episodes of Pleistocene glaciation in the subantarctic islands and that its sisters dispersed northward in response to glacial advance.
Pollen characteristics of New Zealand Gnaphalieae (Compositae) and their taxonomic significance I. LM and SEM
The external pollen morphology has been investigated in 45 taxa of Gnaphalieae (Compositae), predominantly from New Zealand, by means of light microscopy and SEM and it is shown that the pollen grains provide characters which are taxonomically useful in classification of New Zealand GnaphAlieae.
