A linear sequence of extant families and genera of lycophytes and ferns
TLDR
A linear classification to the extant lycophytes and ferns based on current phylogenetic knowledge is provided, which provides a standardized guide for organisation of fern collections into a more natural sequence. Expand
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. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships, possible ancient hybridization, and biogeographic history of Abies (Pinaceae) based on data from nuclear, plastid, and mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
Results from biogeographic analyses and divergence time estimation suggested an origin and early diversification of Abies in an area of high latitude around the Pacific during the Eocene and an 'out-of-America' migration, for the origin of an eastern Asian and western North American disjunct species pairs in section Amabilis. Expand
The microsoroid ferns: Inferring the relationships of a highly diverse lineage of Paleotropical epiphytic ferns (Polypodiaceae, Polypodiopsida).
TLDR
The relationships of the microsoroid ferns were studied using a DNA sequence-based phylogenetic approach and unique insights were gained into the biogeographic history of this highly diverse epiphytic vascular plant lineage that is widespread in continental Asia to Australasia. Expand
Exploring generic delimitation within the fern family Thelypteridaceae.
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses of three chloroplast regions for 115 taxa, representing 27 recognized segregates in the Thelypteridaceae, showed extremely high levels of homoplastic evolution for many diagnostic characters. Expand
Eurasian origin, boreotropical migration and transoceanic dispersal in the pantropical fern genus Diplazium (Athyriaceae)
TLDR
The current tropical amphi-Pacific disjunctions in subgenus Diplazium can be better explained by the disruption of boreotropical belt, however, long-distance dispersal between Eurasia and tropical America cannot be ruled out. Expand
The rise of the Himalaya enforced the diversification of SE Asian ferns by altering the monsoon regimes
TLDR
The hypothesis that the rise of Himalaya had a strong impact on the plant diversity in the biodiversity hotspot of the Southwest Chinese Mountains is inferred and new evidence for a coincidence of plant diversification and changes of the climate caused by the uplift of the Himalaya is reported. Expand
Phylogeography of the Sino-Himalayan Fern Lepisorus clathratus on “The Roof of the World”
TLDR
Light is shed on the response of alpine ferns in the QTP and HHM to the Quaternary climatic oscillations and suggests that a long term survival area (refugia) of the species was located in the Hengduan Mountains during glaciations, with probable range expansions into north-central regions during interglacial periods. Expand
First insights in the phylogeny of Asian cheilanthoid ferns based on sequences of two chloroplast markers
TLDR
Maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analyses were conducted on separate and combined sequence datasets to gain insights into phylogenetic relationships and generic circumscriptions of these cheilanthoids, with the following results. Expand
Phylogeny of cryptogrammoid ferns and related taxa based on rbcL sequences
TLDR
The present study supports the treatment of the cryptogrammoids as either a separate family or subfamily of a broadly circumscribed Pteridaceae, but Pichi Sermolli's circumscription of Cryptogrammaceae should be emended to include Coniogramme and to exclude Onychium. Expand
