Hawaiian Biogeography: Evolution on a Hot Spot Archipelago
Revised Classification of the Onagraceae
The history of generic and suprageneric classification in Onagraceae is surveyed, the knowledge of the morphological and molecular variation in the family in a phylogenetic context is summarized, and a revised classification that reflects that phylogeny is proposed.
FOSSIL EVIDENCE FOR A DIVERSE BIOTA FROM KAUA‘I AND ITS TRANSFORMATION SINCE HUMAN ARRIVAL
It is confirmed that the prehuman lowlands of dry leeward Kaua’i included plants and animals previously known only in wetter and cooler habitats, and efforts to restore lowland areas in the Hawaiian Islands must take into account the evidence from this study.
Biogeographical and Ecological Correlates of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Flora

Because the Hawaiian angiosperm flora originated from a minimum of only 291 colonists, many of the associations of dimorphism with ecological traits occur because of the influence of only a few species-rich lineages, and Baker's law is not supported within the Hawaiian Islands.
Progressive island colonization and ancient origin of Hawaiian Metrosideros (Myrtaceae)

Haplotype diversity in the five currently recognized Hawaiian Metrosideros species and an established out-group from French Polynesia is investigated, and it is unable to resolve whether the pattern is instead explained by ancient introgression and incomplete lineage sorting resulting in repeated chloroplast capture.

Likelihood-based estimates of ancestral ranges for Cyrtandra suggest a major dispersal route into the Pacific through the islands of Fiji and Samoa, motivating future biogeographic investigation of this poorly known region.
Testing geological models of evolution of the Isthmus of Panama in a phylogenetic framework
Recent geological and palaeobiological data suggest an early Oligocene to early Miocene model of evolution of the Isthmus of Panama, consistent with a geologically older age for theIsthmus than previously understood.
Origins of Dioecy in the Hawaiian Flora
Dioecy in the Hawaiian Islands is a result of both dimorphic colonists as well as evolution of dioecY in Hawaiian lineages from hermaphroditic colonists, the highest of any known flora worldwide.
