Observations on the biogeography of the Amotape-Huancabamba Zone in northern Peru
Some scientists have suggested that the Huancabamba Depression in northern Peru—i.e., the partial interruption of the Andean chain by the Rio Chamaya drainage system—represents a majorExpand

Congruence of a phylogeny of Cordiaceae (Boraginales) inferred from ITS1 sequence data with morphology, ecology, and biogeography.
The phylogenetic relationships of Cordiaceae were investigated using ITS1 sequences from 50 ingroup taxa and three outgroup taxa. Molecular analyses suggest that Coldenia procumbens, traditionallyExpand

Diversification in the Andes: age and origins of South American Heliotropium lineages (Heliotropiaceae, Boraginales).
The uplift of the Andes was a major factor for plant diversification in South America and had significant effects on the climatic patterns at the continental scale. It was crucial for the formationExpand

Multiple origins for Hound's tongues (Cynoglossum L.) and Navel seeds (Omphalodes Mill.)--the phylogeny of the borage family (Boraginaceae s.str.).
Recent studies all indicated that both the affinities and subdivision of Boraginaceae s.str. are unsatisfactorily resolved. Major open issues are the placement and affinities of Boraginaceae s.str.Expand
