The taxa of Ficus are classified on the basis of the specificity and morphology of their symbiotic wasps (Agaonidae), systems of pollination, and morphology and physiology of the figs. The new classification is a modification of Corner's system with the following changes. In subgenus Ficus, subsection Eriosycea is elevated to sectional rank. Series Rivulares and Pseudopalmae do not belong to the group of Blastophaga-pollinated figs and are transferred to the new Cerotosolen-pollinated complex… 
Phylogenetic relationships of functionally dioecious FICUS (Moraceae) based on ribosomal DNA sequences and morphology.
TLDR
The associations of pollinating fig wasps were congruent with host fig phylogeny and further supported a revised classification of Ficus and suggested that functionally dioecious figs are not monophyletic and that monoecious subg.
Molecular phylogenies of fig wasps: partial cocladogenesis of pollinators and parasites.
TLDR
It is argued that host plant switching is likely to be less constrained for Sycoscapter parasites than for Pleistodontes pollinators, and there is not perfect congruence of pollinator and parasite phylogenies.
A taxonomic revision of the Australian Ficus species in the section Malvanthera (Ficus subg. Urostigma: Moraceae)
TLDR
A taxonomic revision of the Australian Ficus species in the section Malvanthera (Ficus subg. Urostigma: Moraceae) is presented, and Hesperidiiformes is raised to the rank of series.
Diversity and distribution of figs (Ficus: Moraceae) in Gianyar District, Bali, Indonesia
Abstract. Wijaya IDS, Defiani MR. 2021. Diversity and distribution of figs (Ficus: Moraceae) in Gianyar District, Bali, Indonesia. Biodiversitas 22: 233-246. Fig (Ficus) is an important species in
Morphology, Molecules, and Monogenean Parasites: An Example of an Integrative Approach to Cichlid Biodiversity
TLDR
Traditional morphological methods meet their limitations in delineating species in Lake Tanganyika cichlids and monogenean Cichlidogyrus gill parasites, often highly species-specific, are used as complementary markers.
Clinal Variation and Species Boundaries in the Ficus petiolaris Complex (Moraceae)
TLDR
Ficus petiolaris, the first name described in this complex, is recognized as the only species that should be recognized, with a wide distribution from Sonora to Oaxaca and in Baja California.
SEX DIFFERENCES AND FLOWERING PHENOLOGY IN THE COMMON FIG, FICUS CARICA L.
TLDR
The evolutionary origin of the separate sexes in F. carica and related species and the selective forces responsible for the characters of the various crops produced by the two sexes are considered in detail for the first time.
CO-EVOLUTION OF FIGS AND THEIR INSECT POLLINATORS
TLDR
The figs and fig wasps are interdependent; generally, their relation is strictly specific-i.e. every species of fig has its own species of pollinator wasp.
Seed and wasp production in the mutualism of figs and fig wasps
TLDR
Bagged experiment showed that the sampling fig species was not self-sterile which was important for figs and wasps to survive bad season and Seed production in self-pollinated figs was not significantly different from total wasps including non-pollinating ones.
A survey of epidermal morphology in Ficus Linn. (Moraceae) of Nigeria
TLDR
A detailed morphological study of the leaf epidermis of the tropical genus Ficus Linn revealed several interesting epidermal features that have not previously been reported in the genus.

AN INTRODUCTION TO THE DISTRIBUTION OF FICUS
TLDR
Two subgenera, Pharmaeosycea and Urostigma, suggest a southern migration, but the third subgenus Ficus suggests a northern origin and dispersal, and the facts are based on monographic revision of the species of Asia and Australasia.
HOST SPECIFICITY OF FIG WASPS (AGAONIDAE).
TLDR
The evidence concerning the degree of host specificity of fig wasps is evaluated and the evidence concerning such specificity and its occasional breakdown is evaluated.
