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.
A large‐scale phylogeny of the lycophyte genus Selaginella (Selaginellaceae: Lycopodiopsida) based on plastid and nuclear loci
TLDR
20 major clades representing 20 major evolutionary lineages are identified, which differ from one another in molecular, macro‐morphological, ecological and spore features, and/or geographical distribution.
Spore morphology of Selaginella (Selaginellaceae) from China and its systematic significance
TLDR
Using the spore morphology, the delimitation of some taxonomically difficult species in Selaginella is assessed and some important morphological characteristics in spores (e.g., color, micro-sculpture, size, etc.), often been neglected in previous studies, are introduced.
Pollen morphology in Rubus (Rosaceae) and its taxonomic implications
TLDR
The results showed that the pollen grains of studied Rubus species are tricolporate, and pollen shape varies from suboblate, spheroidal, subprolate and prolate to perprolate.
Circumscription and phylogeny of the fern family Tectariaceae based on plastid and nuclear markers, with the description of two new genera: Draconopteris and Malaifilix (Tectariaceae)
TLDR
Major results include: Tectaria as currently circumscribed is not monophyletic and can be divided into three genera, and it is advocated that Lomariopsidaceae include these four genera (plus the unsampled Thysanosoria); and intercontinental dispersal appears to have played an important role in shaping the extant distribution.
A global plastid phylogeny of the brake fern genus Pteris (Pteridaceae) and related genera in the Pteridoideae
TLDR
DNA sequences of six plastid loci of 146 accessions representing 119 species of Pteris and 18 related genera were used to infer a phylogeny using maximum‐likelihood, Bayesian‐inference and maximum‐parsimony methods.
