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.
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.
Large-scale phylogenomic analysis resolves a backbone phylogeny in ferns
TLDR
A large-scale phylogenomic analysis using high-quality transcriptome sequencing data covered 69 fern species from 38 families and 11 orders and confirmed that Equisetales is sister to the rest of ferns, and Dennstaedtiaceae is sisters to eupolypods II.
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.
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.
Towards a natural classification of Pteridaceae: inferring the relationships of enigmatic pteridoid fern species occurring in the Sino-Himalaya and Afro-Madagascar
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships of two understudied fern species belonging to the pteridoid clade of Pteridaceae are addressed, contributing to the rapidly increasing body of evidence supporting the hypothesis of a frequent exchange between the Asian and Afromadagascan fern-floras during the Cenozoic.
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.
