Natural Delineation, Molecular Phylogeny and Floral Evolution in Campanula
Abstract The circumscription and infrageneric classification of Campanula is highly controversial. Independent and combined data from nuclear and chloroplast sequences (trnL-trnF, ITS) were analyzedExpand

Phylogeny and Historical Biogeography of Geraniaceae in Relation to Climate Changes and Pollination Ecology
Abstract Chloroplast (trnL−F and rbcL) sequences were used to reconstruct the phylogeny of Geraniaceae and Hypseocharitaceae. According to these data Hypseocharitaceae and Geraniaceae areExpand

Reconstructing the history of Campanulaceae with a Bayesian approach to molecular dating and dispersal-vicariance analyses.
We reconstruct here the spatial and temporal evolution of the Campanula alliance in order to better understand its evolutionary history. To increase phylogenetic resolution among major groupsExpand

Diversity and distribution of ferns in sub‐Saharan Africa, Madagascar and some islands of the South Atlantic
Abstract Aim  This paper reports the diversity and endemism patterns of African ferns, and explores the potential role of diversity refuges and environmental and historical factors in the shaping ofExpand

Bayesian inference of phylogeny, morphology and range evolution reveals a complex evolutionary history in St. John's wort (Hypericum).
The genus Hypericum L. ("St. John's wort", Hypericaceae) comprises nearly 500 species of shrubs, trees and herbs distributed mainly in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere, but also inExpand

The genus Sorbus (Maloideae, Rosaceae) in Europe and in North Africa: morphological analysis and systematics
A multivariate morphometric study of the genus Sorbus, from 127 herbarium specimens in Europe and North Africa and nine populations in Spain, shows that twelve species may be easily recognized in theExpand

The uneven phylogeny and biogeography of Erodium (Geraniaceae): radiations in the Mediterranean and recent recurrent intercontinental colonization.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS The genus Erodium is a common feature of Mediterranean-type climates throughout the world, but the Mediterranean Basin has significantly higher diversity than other areas. The aimExpand

Bayesian island biogeography in a continental setting: the Rand Flora case
We here explore the use of a Bayesian approach to island biogeography for disentangling the evolutionary origins of a continental-scale floristic pattern, the enigmatic ‘Rand Flora’. The existence ofExpand
