Comparative phylogeography of unglaciated eastern North America
Modelling analyses indicate no clear spatial patterning and support the hypothesis that phylogeographical structure in diverse temperate taxa is complex and was not shaped by just a few barriers.
Chloroplast DNA surveys are used to show that the geography of postglacial range expansion in two eastern North American tree species differs from that expected from pollen-based reconstructions and from patterns emerging from European molecular studies.
Phylogeny, biogeography, and processes of molecular differentiation in Quercus subgenus Quercus (Fagaceae).
The biogeographic hypothesis that all major oak lineages evolved locally at middle latitudes within the general distribution of their fossil ancestors was fully supported and a New World origin for the widespread white oaks of the Northern Hemisphere was suggested.
Systematics of Fagaceae: Phylogenetic Tests of Reproductive Trait Evolution
Combined analysis provided some evidence for a relationship of Quercus to Lithocarpus and Chrysolepis, taxa with dichasially arranged pistillate flowers, where each flower is surrounded by cupular tissue, which indicates that a more broadly defined flower cupule may have a single origin.
The Historical Biogeography of Fagaceae: Tracking the Tertiary History of Temperate and Subtropical Forests of the Northern Hemisphere
Two phylogenetic analyses on genera with intercontinentally disjunct distributions suggested an Asian origin for the genus Fagus with bidirectional migration to Europe and North America, consistent with a paraphyletic assemblage of Asian species and intercontinental exchange via the Bering Land Bridge (BLB).
Hydraulic traits are influenced by phylogenetic history in the drought-resistant, invasive genus Juniperus (Cupressaceae).
A new phylogeny based on DNA sequences tested the relationships between vulnerability to cavitation and other traits using both traditional cross-species correlations and independent contrast correlations and found strong phylogenetic support for two clades previously based on leaf margin serration (serrate and smooth).
Phylogeny and patterns of floral diversity in the genus Piper (Piperaceae).
A phylogenetic analysis of sequences of the internal transcribed spacers of nuclear ribosomal DNA based on a worldwide sample of Piper suggested that taxa representing major geographic areas could potentially form three monophyletic groups: Asia, the South Pacific, and the Neotropics.
Systematics of Nothofagus (Nothofagaceae) based on rDNA spacer sequences (ITS): taxonomic congruence with morphology and plastid sequences.

Compared to previous thought, the distribution of extant Nothofagus is informative on the area relationships of the Southern Hemisphere, once precise phylogenetic relationships are placed in the context of fossil data.
A Framework Phylogeny of the American Oak Clade Based on Sequenced RAD Data
This study is one of the first to demonstrate the utility of RAD-Seq data for inferring phylogeny in a 23–33 million year-old clade of oaks, and introduces a partitioned RAD visualization method to investigate the possibility that suboptimal topologies supported by large numbers of loci—due to reticulate evolution or lineage sorting—are masked by the globally optimal tree.
Phylogenetic analyses of "higher" Hamamelididae based on plastid sequence data.

The basal position of Nothofagus within the matK tree is consistent with the fossil record of "higher" hamamelids in which Noth ofagus pollen appears earlier than microfossils with affinities to other modern " Higher Hamamelididae.
