A community‐derived classification for extant lycophytes and ferns
TLDR
A modern, comprehensive classification for lycophytes and ferns, down to the genus level, utilizing a community‐based approach, that uses monophyly as the primary criterion for the recognition of taxa, but also aims to preserve existing taxa and circumscriptions that are both widely accepted and consistent with the understanding of pteridophyte phylogeny.

Towards Resolving the Complete Fern Tree of Life
TLDR
The most comprehensive fern phylogeny to date, representing over one-fifth of the extant global fern diversity, is inferred based on four plastid genes, demonstrating the power of using a ‘supermatrix’ approach to resolve large-scale phylogenies and reveal questionable taxonomies. Expand
Phylogenetics and classification of the pantropical fern family Lindsaeaceae
TLDR
The evolutionary history of the Lindsaeaceae is studied by simultaneously optimizing 55 morphological characters, two plastid genes (rpoC1 and rps4) and three non-coding plASTid intergenic spacers (trnL-F, rps 4-trnS and trnH-psbA) and finding six well-supported and diagnostic clades that can be recognized as genera.

On the monophyly of subfamily Tectarioideae (Polypodiaceae) and the phylogenetic placement of some associated fern genera
TLDR
Polypodiaceae subfamily Tectarioideae is hereby defined to include Arthropteris, Hypoderris, Pteridrys, Tectaria and Triplophyllum, which was found to be monophyletic. Expand
An integrative approach to species delimitation in Echinodorus (Alismataceae) and the description of two new species
TLDR
28 species based on a phylogenetic species concept are now recognised in Echinodorus and an identification key to these species is provided. Expand
Diversification of lindsaeoid ferns and phylogenetic uncertainty of early polypod relationships
TLDR
Based on relaxed molecular clock analyses, it appears that the crown group lindsaeoids diversified in the Caenozoic, more or less simultaneously with the main radiation of other Polypodiales, even though the original divergence between the lindSaeoid and non-lindsaioid polypods occurred before the end of the Jurassic. Expand
Cladistic analysis of Echinodorus (Alismataceae): simultaneous analysis of molecular and morphological data
TLDR
A simultaneous cladistic analysis of molecular and morphological data was conducted to resolve the phylogeny of the genus Echinodorus, showing it to be polyphyletic and rejecting all currently proposed infrageneric classifications. Expand
Systematics of the Alismataceae—A morphological evaluation
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of aquatic plant families Alismataceae and Limnocharitaceae were investigated by cladistic analysis of morphological and cytological characters, which allowed much wider taxon sampling and resulted in several new hypotheses. Expand
Environmentally driven extinction and opportunistic origination explain fern diversification patterns
TLDR
A novel Bayesian model is developed to simultaneously estimate correlations between diversification dynamics and multiple environmental trajectories and indicates that the prime driver of fern diversity dynamics is environmentally driven extinction, with origination being an opportunistic response to diminishing ecospace occupancy. Expand
Phylogenetic Placement of the Enigmatic Fern Genus Dracoglossum
TLDR
It is shown that Dracoglossum does not belong to the genus Tectaria Cav. Expand
