The origin and early diversification of land plants : a cladistic study
The origin and early evolution of plants on land
A recent surge of interest in palaeobotanical discoveries and advances in the systematics of living plants provides a revised perspective on the evolution of early land plants and suggests new directions for future research.
Early Flowers and Angiosperm Evolution
This work has highlighted the importance of understanding the environmental context of early angiosperm evolution in the context of extant and fossil seed plants, as well as the history and evolution of pollination in angiosperms.

The abundance of recent divergences in northern clades may reflect complex patterns of migration and range shifts during climatic cycles over the later Neogene leading to elevated rates of speciation and extinction, whereas the scattered persistence of mild, wetter habitats in the Southern Hemisphere may have favored the survival of older lineages.
The origin and early diversification of angiosperms
New palaeobotanical discoveries and phylogenetic analyses of morphological and molecular data have clarified the initial phases of this radiation and changed the perspective on early angiosperm evolution, though important issues remain unresolved.
