Phylogenetics of Pitcairnioideae s.s. (Bromeliaceae): evidence from nuclear and plastid DNA sequence data
TLDR
The data support the concept that Pitcairnioideae originated in the Andes, followed by numerous dispersal events to South and Central America, and support the monophyletic of the subfamily. Expand

Spatio-temporal evolution of Fosterella (Bromeliaceae) in the Central Andean biodiversity hotspot
TLDR
The isolated distribution of suitable habitats fostered the evolution of a high degree of endemism and allopatric speciation is the main mode of diversification in Fosterella, which contrasts with high diversification rates of Andean high-elevation taxa but is similar to other Andean low- to mid-elevision taxa. Expand
Ecological range shift in the polyploid members of the South American genus Fosterella (Bromeliaceae)
TLDR
The results exemplify the role of polyploidy as an important driver of speciation in a topographically highly structured and thus climatically diverse landscape and provide indirect evidence for both adaptive ecological and non-adaptive historical processes that jointly influenced the cytotype distribution in the predominantly Andean genus Fosterella (Bromeliaceae).

Australasian orchid diversification in time and space: molecular phylogenetic insights from the beard orchids (Calochilus, Diurideae)
TLDR
To examine the spatio-temporal evolution of Calochilus, divergence-time estimations were conducted within a Bayesian framework using an uncorrelated relaxed molecular-clock model, followed by maximum-likelihood ancestral-range reconstructions comparing four biogeographic models. Expand
Reproduction biology and chloroplast inheritance in Bromeliaceae: a case study in Fosterella (Pitcairnioideae)
TLDR
The results support the concept that self-compatibility is an appropriate way to avoid natural hybridization in Bromeliaceae and could assist in maintaining species integrity in the presence of pollen flow. Expand
Chromosomal features of Fosterella species (Bromeliaceae, Pitcairnioideae)
TLDR
The data indicate that Fosterella species have little heterochromatin and it is largely restricted to the vicinity of the nucleolus organizer region and the data also indicate that hybridization has probably played an important role in the evolution of Fsterella. Expand
RAD sequencing resolved phylogenetic relationships in European shrub willows (Salix L. subg. Chamaetia and subg. Vetrix) and revealed multiple evolution of dwarf shrubs
TLDR
This study confirmed RAD sequencing as a useful genomic tool for the reconstruction of relationships on different taxonomic levels in the genus Salix. Expand
Development of microsatellite markers in Fosterella rusbyi (Bromeliaceae) using 454 pyrosequencing.
TLDR
The 15 SSR markers developed for F. rusbyi are promising candidates for population genetic analyses within F. RUSbyi and other species of Fosterella. Expand
Phylogenomic Relationships and Evolution of Polyploid Salix Species Revealed by RAD Sequencing Data
TLDR
The RAD sequencing data demonstrate that willow genomes are shaped by ancient and recent reticulate evolution, polyploidization, and post-origin divergence of species. Expand
