A new subfamilial and tribal classification of the pantropical flowering plant family Annonaceae informed by molecular phylogenetics
The pantropical flowering plant family Annonaceae is the most species-rich family of Magnoliales. Despite long-standing interest in the systematics of Annonaceae, no authoritative classification hasExpand

Evolutionary divergence times in the Annonaceae: evidence of a late Miocene origin of Pseuduvaria in Sundaland with subsequent diversification in New Guinea
BackgroundPhylogenetic analyses of the Annonaceae consistently identify four clades: a basal clade consisting of Anaxagorea, and a small 'ambavioid' clade that is sister to two main clades, the 'longExpand

The historical origins of palaeotropical intercontinental disjunctions in the pantropical flowering plant family Annonaceae
Geographic isolation of sister taxa in the African and Asian tropics (palaeotropical intercontinental disjunction; PID) is a major biogeographic pattern explained by four competing hypotheses:Expand
