The oaks of western Eurasia: Traditional classifications and evidence from two nuclear markers
Phylogenetic relationships among species of Quercus (oaks) from western Eurasia including the western part of the Himalayas are examined for the first time. Based on ITS and 5S-IGS data three majorExpand

Episodic migration of oaks to Iceland: Evidence for a North Atlantic "land bridge" in the latest Miocene.
Dating the subsidence history of the North Atlantic Land Bridge (NALB) is crucial for understanding intercontinental disjunctions of northern temperate trees. Traditionally, the NALB has been assumedExpand

Its evolution in Platanus (Platanaceae): homoeologues, pseudogenes and ancient hybridization.
BACKGROUND AND AIMS Platanaceae is an old family of angiosperms extending back to the Early Cretaceous but consisting of a single extant genus, Platanus. Species of Platanus have long been known toExpand

Patterns of molecular and morphological differentiation in Fagus (Fagaceae): phylogenetic implications.
To study phylogenetic relationships among species of Fagus, the internal transcribed spacer regions ITS1 and ITS2 of the nuclear ribosomal DNA and morphological data were analyzed. Both molecular andExpand

The Miocene floras of Iceland and their significance for late Cainozoic North Atlantic biogeography
A large number of plant macrofossils from several Middle to Upper Miocene localities from Iceland have been studied. The fossil material includes four ferns and fern allies, seven conifers, and aboutExpand
