Evolution of Eastern Asian and Eastern North American Disjunct Distributions in Flowering Plants
▪ Abstract The disjunct distributions of morphologically similar plants between eastern Asia and eastern North America have fascinated botanists and biogeographers since the Linnaean era. ThisExpand

Evolutionary diversifications of plants on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau
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 QTPExpand

Infrafamilial classifications and characters in Araliaceae: Insights from the phylogenetic analysis of nuclear (ITS) and plastid (trnL-trnF) sequence data
Abstract.Traditional classifications of Araliaceae have stressed a relatively small number of morphological characters in the circumscription of infrafamilial groups (usually recognized as tribes).Expand

Dapper 1 Antagonizes Wnt Signaling by Promoting Dishevelled Degradation*
Wnt signaling plays pivotal roles in the regulation of embryogenesis and cancer development. Xenopus Dapper (Dpr) was identified as an interacting protein for Dishevelled (Dvl), a Wnt signalingExpand

Comparison of satellite-based evapotranspiration models over terrestrial ecosystems in China
Evapotranspiration (ET) is a key component of terrestrial ecosystems because it links the hydrological, energy, and carbon cycles. Several satellite-based ET models have been developed forExpand

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 andExpand

Intercontinental disjunctions between eastern Asia and western North America in vascular plants highlight the biogeographic importance of the Bering land bridge from late Cretaceous to Neogene
This review shows a close biogeographic connection between eastern Asia and western North America from the late Cretaceous to the late Neogene in major lineages of vascular plants (flowering plants,Expand

Phylogenetic and biogeographic diversification of Rhus (Anacardiaceae) in the Northern Hemisphere.
Sequences of internal transcribed spacers (ITS) of nuclear ribosomal DNA, the chloroplast ndhF gene, and chloroplast trnL-F regions (trnL intron, and trnL [UAA] 3' exon-trnF [GAA] intergenic spacer)Expand
