Everywhere but Antarctica: using a supertree to understand the diversity and distribution of the Compositae.
The results of molecular phylogenetic studies of members of tribes Helenieae, Heliantheae, and Eupatorieae (Asteraceae) and General systematics and proposed taxonomic changes in current classification are presented. Expand

  • 1 May 2008
The largest family of flowering plants Asteraceae (Compositae) is found to contain 12 major lineages rather than five as previously suggested, contradict earlier hypotheses that early divergences in the family took place on and spread from the Guayana Highlands and raise new hypotheses about how Asteraceae dispersed out of the continent of their origin.

A target enrichment method for gathering phylogenetic information from hundreds of loci: An example from the Compositae1
An approach that enables the rapid sequencing of large numbers of orthologous nuclear loci to facilitate efficient phylogenomic analyses and the successful reconstruction of known phylogenetic relationships across the Compositae is described. Expand
The Compleat Cladist: A Primer of Phylogenetic Procedures
The core concept of phylogenetic systematics is the use of derived or apomorphic characters to reconstruct common ancestry relationships and the grouping of taxa based on common ancestry. ThisExpand
Area and the rapid radiation of Hawaiian Bidens (Asteraceae)
On a per-unit-area basis, Hawaiian Bidens have among the highest rates of speciation for plant radiations documented to date and point to the need to consider the spatial context of diversification – specifically, the relative scale of habitable area, environmental heterogeneity and dispersal ability – to understand the rate and extent of adaptive radiation.
