Getting Rid of Species
TLDR
The implications of generalizing the species problem as a special case of the taxon problem, and the practical implications of eliminating the rank of species for such areas as ecology, evolution, and conservation are explored.
The Phylogeny of the Podocarpaceae Based on Morphological Evidence
TLDR
A cladistic analysis of morphological evidence resulted in one most parsimonious tree, with Saxegothaea as sister group to other genera, supporting the recognition of segregate genera in the coniferous family Podocarpaceae.
Origin and Taxonomy of Castilleja montigena (Scrophulariaceae)
TLDR
Both dip- loid introgressants and allopolyploids derived from the same parents are postulated, and a new name, C. montigena, is proposed for the polyploids.
PHYLOGENETICS AND BIOGEOGRAPHY OF THE NEOTROPICAL FERN GENERA JAMESONIA AND ERIOSORUS (PTERIDACEAE) 1
TLDR
Molecular phylogenetic analyses for this study suggest that neither genus is itself monophyletic and that several independent lineages with the jamesonia morphotype have each undergone a fairly recent radiation in paramo ecosystems.
INVITED REVIEW Hawaiian angiosperm radiations of North American origin
TLDR
Temperate and boreal North America is a much more important source of Hawaiian flora than suggested by most 20th century authorities on Pacific plant life, such as Fosberg and Skottsberg.
