Hawaiian Biogeography: Evolution on a Hot Spot Archipelago
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.

A comprehensive dataset of Amazonian seed plant species from published sources that includes falsifiable data based on voucher specimens identified by taxonomic specialists is assembled, providing a valid starting point for macroecological and evolutionary studies aimed at understanding the origin, evolution, and ecology of the exceptional biodiversity ofAmazonian forests.

This study places the origin of Asteraceae at ∼83 MYA in the late Cretaceous and reveals that the family underwent a series of explosive radiations during the Eocene which were accompanied by accelerations in diversification rates.
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. This…
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.
