Phylogeny and biogeography of East Asian evergreen oaks (Quercus section Cyclobalanopsis; Fagaceae): Insights into the Cenozoic history of evergreen broad-leaved forests in subtropical Asia.
TLDR
Biogeographical reconstructions indicate that the wide northern hemisphere distribution of Quercus was disrupted in the Late Eocene, leading to the main extant groups at about 33 Ma, highlighting the importance of climatic changes and Indo-Eurasian collision-induced tectonic activities from the Neogene onward to the spatial-temporal diversification patterns of Asian EBLF lineages. Expand
Phylogeography of Quercus glauca (Fagaceae), a dominant tree of East Asian subtropical evergreen forests, based on three chloroplast DNA interspace sequences
TLDR
Haplotype spatial distribution, ENM, mismatch distribution, and neutrality tests suggest that Q. glauca in Southeast China experiences expansion, and the current distribution in region III might be shaped by southward expansion from regions I and II after last glacial maximum (LGM). Expand
Warm–cold colonization: response of oaks to uplift of the Himalaya–Hengduan Mountains
TLDR
The results suggest that continuous uplift of the HHM in the late Miocene to early Pliocene accompanied by simultaneous cooling triggered the differentiation of oaks, which illuminates the geological events responsible for the modern‐day HHM. Expand
Conservation genetics of rare trees restricted to subtropical montane cloud forests in southern China: a case study from Quercus arbutifolia (Fagaceae)
TLDR
Because of the high between-population genetic differentiation and high within- Population genetic diversity of Q. arbutifolia, conservation efforts should be implemented for all populations, but if conservation resources are limited, populations DM, YZ and ZZ should have priority. Expand
Leaf epidermal features of Quercus Group Ilex (Fagaceae) and their application to species identification
TLDR
The leaf epidermal features show a highly convergent pattern in the genus Quercus based on tree-mapping analysis, except for the multipleEpidermal layers on the adaxial surface supports the monophyletic origin of section Heterobalanus. Expand
Introgression Threatens the Genetic Diversity of Quercus austrocochinchinensis (Fagaceae), an Endangered Oak: A Case Inferred by Molecular Markers
TLDR
A clear genetic differentiation in the populations and subpopulations of Q. austrocochinchinensis and ongoing introgression between Q. kerrii is revealed and the conservation of subpopulation D2 should be prioritized. Expand
Geographical isolation and environmental heterogeneity contribute to the spatial genetic patterns of Quercus kerrii (Fagaceae)
TLDR
Investigation of the spatial genetic patterns and distribution dynamics of Quercus kerrii, a dominant evergreen oak inhabiting southwest China lowland evergreen-broadleaved forests, provides new insights into the historical dynamics of subtropical EBLFs and the changing biota of southwest China. Expand
Genetic diversity and population structure in Bactrocera correcta (Diptera: Tephritidae) inferred from mtDNA cox1 and microsatellite markers
TLDR
The study suggested a close relationship between Yunnan Province and adjacent countries, with evidence for Western and/or Southern Yunnan as the invasive origin of B. correcta within Yunnan province. Expand
Phylogeographic patterns of the Aconitum nemorum species group (Ranunculaceae) shaped by geological and climatic events in the Tianshan Mountains and their surroundings
TLDR
Molecular dating indicates that the lineages of the Aconitum nemorum complex separated during the period of the late Tertiary to late Pleistocene (11.74–0.064 million years ago), which was most likely triggered by recent rapid uplift of the Tianshan Mountains, while genetic variation at the intra-specific level might be attributed to climatic cycles in the late Quaternary. Expand
Genomic landscape of the global oak phylogeny.
TLDR
This study utilizes fossil data and restriction-site associated DNA sequencing (RAD-seq) for 632 individuals representing nearly 250 Quercus species to infer a time-calibrated phylogeny of the world's oaks and test the hypothesis that there are regions of the oak genome that are broadly informative about phylogeny.
