Phylogenetic, molecular, geologic, and fossil data all support the hypothesis that the eastern Asian and eastern North American disjunct distributions are relicts of the maximum development of temperate forests in the northern hemisphere.

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…
Phylogeny and biogeography of Panax L. (the ginseng genus, araliaceae): inferences from ITS sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA.
The Himalayas and central and western China are the current centers of diversity of the ginseng genus and the low ITS sequence divergence and a close relationship among species in that region suggest that rapid evolutionary radiation may have created such a diversity of Panax in the Himalaya and in central and eastern China.
Infrafamilial classifications and characters in Araliaceae: Insights from the phylogenetic analysis of nuclear (ITS) and plastid (trnL-trnF) sequence data
Parsimony and Bayesian-inference analyses suggest that there are three major lineages of Araliaceae, and that these lineages generally correspond with the centers of diversity for the family.
Evolution of Rosaceae Fruit Types Based on Nuclear Phylogeny in the Context of Geological Times and Genome Duplication
It is proposed that WGDs and environmental factors, including animals, contributed to the evolution of the many fruits in Rosaceae, which provide a foundation for understanding fruit evolution.
A phylogenetic analysis of Prunus and the Amygdaloideae (Rosaceae) using ITS sequences of nuclear ribosomal DNA.
The analyses suggest two major groups within the Amygdaloideae: PRUNUS: s.l. (sensu lato) and MADDENIA:, and (2) EXOCHORDA:, Oemleria, and PRINSEPIA: The ITS phylogeny supports the recent treatment of including EXO CHORDA: (formerly in the Spiraeoideae) in the Amydraesideae.
Phylogenetic and biogeographic complexity of Magnoliaceae in the Northern Hemisphere inferred from three nuclear data sets.
Phylogenetic analysis of the grape family (Vitaceae) based on three chloroplast markers.
Phylogenetic analysis of the combined data provided a fairly robust phylogeny for Vitaceae, which shows complex multiple intercontinental relationships within the northern hemisphere and between northern and southern hemispheres.
