A phytogeographic analysis of 845 Taxus specimens is presented based on leaf anatomical characters for the number of stomata rows in a stomata band and the number of epidermal cells that lack papillae between the leaf margin and stomata band. The specimens are arranged by continent, country, state or province, and species, and represented geographically on three maps: (1) North America, (2) the Euro-Mediterranean, and (3) Asia. Taxus is least diverse and most distinct taxonomically in North… 
TAXONOMY AND NOMENCLATURE OF TAXUS (TAXACEAE)
A taxonomic treatment of Taxus (Taxaceae) is presented, based on morphological characters. The genus is proposed to have 24 species and 55 varieties; 24 species and 26 varieties are presented in a
Leaf anatomy and its implications for phylogenetic relationships in Taxaceae s. l.
TLDR
Differences in leaf and stomata morphology neither strongly support the two tribes in Taxaceae nor fairly recognize the monogeneric family, Cephalotaxaceae, so Taxaceae should be redefined with broad circumscriptions including Cep Halotaxus.
Revisión sobre la distribución y conservación de Taxus globosa Schltdl. (Taxaceae) en México
Taxus globosa is a conifer that has been little studied from the biological, ecological and reproductive point of view. It produces a pseudo-alkaloid called taxol, which acts against various types of
Taxus baccata in the Azores: a relict form at risk of imminent extinction
TLDR
It is assumed that sequence analysis of the chloroplast trnS–trnQ intergenic spacer demonstrates that the Azorean population represents a different evolutionary line within Taxus, which suggests a more direct derivation from ancestors than provenances from Mediterranean and European regions.
Leaf anatomy of Pinus thunbergii Parl. (Pinaceae) collected from different regions of Korea
TLDR
Leaf anatomical study of Pinus thunbergii collected from 12 different coastal regions of Korea was conducted to understand the adaptive variation on leaf traits and important dissimilarities observed are the number and position of resin ducts and the number of stomata rows in leaf surface.
Phylogenetics of Taxus Using the Internal Transcribed Spacers of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA and Plastid trnL-F Regions
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses were conducted on DNA sequences using Maximum Likelihood, Bayesian Inference and TCS haplotype networks on single and combined gene regions obtained for the nuclear ribosomal ITS region and the plastid trnL intron andtrnL-F intergenic spacer to address differences in taxonomic circumscription.
Morphological and molecular data from Madeira support the persistence of an ancient lineage of Taxus baccata L. in Macaronesia and call for immediate conservation actions
TLDR
Gathered data suggest the survival of a lineage of T. baccata different from those on the continent, and with a possible closer derivation from the species’ ancestors, and confirm the role of the archipelagos to preserve relict flora and lineages.
MORPHO-ANATOMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF LEAVES OF TAXUS WALLICHIANA ZUCC. FROM NORTH EASTERN AND NORTH WESTERN HIMALAYAS
Leaves of Taxus wallichiana Zucc. from NE and NW Himalayas were studied to determine the variation in anatomical characteristics of both regions. The present study revealed that the leaves of NE

Phylogeny and Biogeography of Taxus (Taxaceae) Inferred from Sequences of the Internal Transcribed Spacer Region of Nuclear Ribosomal DNA
TLDR
The ITS phylogeny implies that intercontinental disjunctions in Taxus entailed at least two vicariance events: an initial split between the New World T. globosa clade and the rest, and a later split separating T. canadensis from the Old World species.

Seed morphology and anatomy of Austrotaxus spicata (Taxaceae) and its systematic position
TLDR
On the basis of all female reproductive organ characters,Austrotaxus appeared to be fairly isolated and its placing in the independent family Austrotaxaceae was confirmed from the standpoint of comparative anatomy of the seed coat.
The morphology and relationships of Thuja polaris sp.nov. (Cupressaceae) from the early Tertiary, Ellesmere Island, Arctic Canada
TLDR
A review of the fossil record indicates that most Thuja-like vegetative remains which have been reported from Cretaceous and Tertiary deposits in the Northern Hemisphere are best assigned to form taxa and not to extant genera.
Yew (Taxus) Species - Chemical And Morphological Variations
TLDR
Morphological comparison of Taxus with samples of the taxonomically related conifers, Cephalotaxus and Torreya, indicated significant microscopical differences in epidermal characteristics, stomatal arrangement, numbers and pore sizes, which appeared to confirm the opinion that taxonomyically Yews should be considered as a single species.

This paper introduces an integrated system of morphological concepts for gymnosperm fructifications, which does not lean upon any system existing for other higher plants. Comparative analytical
Species separation of Taxus baccata, T. canadensis, and T. cuspidata (Taxaceae) and origins of their reputed hybrids inferred from RAPD and cpDNA data.
TLDR
Principal coordinates analysis (PCO) and unweighted pair-group method algorithm (UPGMA) analyses of RAPD bands clearly separated the species, indicating that they belong to discrete genetic stocks and supporting their individual species status.
Phylogeny and classification of Pinus
TLDR
The cpDNA tree plus evidence from nuclear ribosomal DNA and morphology to propose a new classification for the genus Pinus, allowing for the delineation of two subgenera, each with two sections that form sister groups.
On the Morphology and Relationships on the Taxaceae
TLDR
The Cephalotaxaceae are still variously treated, viz., as a group of the farnily Taxaceae or as a family of their own, either placed close to the yew family or regarded as of very different phylogenetic origin.
