Phylogeny has long informed pteridophyte classification. As our ability to infer evolutionary trees has improved, classifications aimed at recognizing natural groups have become increasingly predictive and stable. Here, we provide a modern, comprehensive classification for lycophytes and ferns, down to the genus level, utilizing a community‐based approach. We use monophyly as the primary criterion for the recognition of taxa, but also aim to preserve existing taxa and circumscriptions that are… 
Evolution and Classification of Ferns and Lycophytes
This chapter reviews the major lineages, diversification events, and transitions in fern and lycophyte evolution and summarizes the current understanding of f Fern and lyCophyte classification based on a modern, community-derived classification system that was recently produced for all 11,916 extant species of ferns and Lycophytes.
Updating Taiwanese pteridophyte checklist: a new phylogenetic classification
An updated, phylogeny-based checklist of Taiwan pteridophyte flora that includes a total of 824 (infra)species taxa, of which eleven are first recorded, is provided.
A Global Phylogenomic Study of the Thelypteridaceae
The phylogenomic results, informed by recently published morphological evidence, provide the foundation for a generic classification which recircumscribed 14 genera and recognized seven new genera, and demonstrate greater geographic coherence than previous taxonomic concepts suggested.
Phylogenetics and historical biogeography of Lomaridium(Blechnaceae: Polypodiopsida)
The phylogenetic relationships and the historical biogeography of the species of Lomaridium, a genus including most of the hemiepiphytic species in the Blechnaceae, are unraveled, suggesting that the early history of the family was complex biogeographically, with extensive long-distance dispersal events.
An updated phylogenetic bioregionalization for the European fern flora
This study draws on an exhaustive distribution dataset including all fern species and subspecies of Europe as well as a nearly complete molecular phylogeny to define fern phyloregions based on their phylogenetic relatedness, and quantified the degree of specificity of individual phylogenetic clades to the phyloreGions using a new index of geographical confinement based on phylogenetic diversity.
On the Recognition of Gymnosphaera As a Distinct Genus in Cyatheaceae1
Gymnosphaera is reinstated, with a minor emendation in circumscription, as a separate genus of scaly tree ferns, supported to be distinct from Alsophila in molecular phylogeny, in morphology, and in sporogenetic mechanism.
Evaluating the status of fern and lycophyte nothotaxa in the context of the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group classification (PPG I)
It is found that several nothogenera nested in the orders Osmundales and Polypodiales are supported in the framework of PPG I, but others are superfluous and the distribution of nothospecies across the pteridophyte phylogeny is explored for the first time.
New infrageneric classification of Abies in light of molecular phylogeny and high diversity in western North America
Phylogenetic results show that western North America is home to an exceptionally high diversity of fir lineages, which is further corroborated by the cuticle morphology and internal transcribed spacer genotypes based on the length differences.

Abstract. The classification and typification of all Australian ferns and lycophytes is updated to reflect the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group I classification and the International Code of Nomenclature


Towards a phylogenetic classification of the climbing fern genus Arthropteris
The Paleotropical climbing fern genus Arthropteris and its close relative Psammio­ sorus are established as a well-supported clade representing a separate taxon based on their morphological distinctiveness, phylogenetic relationships, and separation since the Eocene from other accepted families of eupolypod ferns.
A revised generic classification of vittarioid ferns (Pteridaceae) based on molecular, micromorphological, and geographic data
A revised generic classification of vittarioid ferns (Pteridaceae) based on molecular, micromorphological, and geographic data is presented.
Patterns of Diversification in the Xeric-adapted Fern Genus Myriopteris (Pteridaceae)
A phylogeny for the myriopterid clade is infer and key morphological characters across this phylogeny are examined, along with a brief discussion of the three well-supported Myriopteris subclades, and a review of reproductive mode and known ploidy levels for members of this early diverging lineage of cheilanthoid ferns.
Molecular Phylogeny of the Cliff Ferns (Woodsiaceae: Polypodiales) with a Proposed Infrageneric Classification
A new subgeneric classification of the redefined Woodsia is presented based on phylogenetic and ancestral state reconstructions to better reflect the morphological variation, geographic distribution pattern, and evolutionary history of the genus.
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of the fern genus Pteris (Pteridaceae).
This first phylogeny of Pteris on a global scale and including more than half of the diversity of the genus should contribute to a new, more reliable infrageneric classification of PTeris, based not only on a few morphological characters but also on ecological traits and geographical distribution.
A global molecular phylogeny of the fern genus Trichomanes (Hymenophyllaceae) with special reference to stem anatomy
The suggestion that the regressive character states are homoplastic apomorphies in the evolution of the frond size, stem thickness, root system, and stem anatomy probably illustrates a strong tendency towards adaptive evolutionary transition in Trichomanes.
A classification for extant ferns
A revised classification for extant ferns is presented, with emphasis on ordinal and familial ranks, and a synopsis of included genera is provided, reflecting recently published phylogenetic hypotheses based on both morphological and molecular data.
Phylogenetics and classification of the pantropical fern family Lindsaeaceae
The evolutionary history of the Lindsaeaceae is studied by simultaneously optimizing 55 morphological characters, two plastid genes (rpoC1 and rps4) and three non-coding plASTid intergenic spacers (trnL-F, rps 4-trnS and trnH-psbA) and finding six well-supported and diagnostic clades that can be recognized as genera.
A Unified Approach to Taxonomic Delimitation in the Fern Genus Pentagramma (Pteridaceae)
Combining spore studies with phylogenetic analyses of plastid and nuclear sequences, this study identifies six genetically and morphologically distinct diploid lineages in Pentagramma, each of which is here treated as a species.
A revised family-level classification for eupolypod II ferns (Polypodiidae: Polypodiales)
We present a family-level classification for the eupolypod II clade of leptosporangiate ferns, one of the two major lineages within the Eupolypods, and one of the few parts of the fern tree of life
