Macrofossils of Carpinus have been widely reported from the Cenozoic of the Northern Hemisphere. However, the leaf cuticules of the genus have rarely been described. A new species, named Carpinustengchongensis Dai et B.N. Sun, sp. nov., is identified based on 13 leaf fossils, collected from the late Pliocene Mangbang Formation, Tengchong County of Yunnan Province, China. The important characters of the fossil are its oblong-ovate leaf shape, obliquely cordate base, doubly serrulate margin… Expand

Involucre fossils of Carpinus, a northern temperate element, from the Miocene of China and the evolution of its species diversity in East Asia
TLDR
This work describes six species of Carpinus from the early Miocene of the Maguan Basin, southwestern China, southern East Asia, showing that the genus had achieved a high diversity in East Asia at least by the middle Miocene, and indicates that the accumulation of species diversity of Carpins in EastAsia is a complex process involving extinction, persistence, and possible subsequent speciation.

Plant-insect associations from the upper Miocene of Lincang, Yunnan, China
TLDR
Fossil leaves from the Bangmai Formation of Lincang, Yunnan Province, southwest China, presented a variety of plant-insect interactions in the late Miocene, shaping both the present flora and fauna. Expand

A new species of Exbucklandia (Hamamelidaceae) from the Pliocene of China and its paleoclimatic significance
TLDR
The distribution of the modern Exbucklandia suggests that the genus lives under a warm climate with a mean annual temperature from 13 °C to 27 ° C and a mean annually precipitation from 800 mm to 2500 mm, and the little change of Neogene MAT in Southwest China is supported. Expand
A New Genus of Betulaceae from the Oligocene of Western North America
An extinct genus of betulaceous fruit, Asterocarpinus perplexans (Cockerell) comb. nov., is described from three early Oligocene floras: the Florissant flora of Colorado, the lower John Day flora ofExpand
CUTICULAR STRUCTURE OF TWO ANGIOSPERM FOSSILS IN NEOGENE FROM TENGCHONG,YUNNAN PROVINCE AND ITS PALAEOENVIRONMENTAL SIGNIFICANCE
TLDR
The stomatal parameter of C.subcordata is got which indicates that atmospheric CO 2 concentration in Neogene was higher than that of today, and the Neogene climate in western Yunnan was warm and humid, belonging to tropical zone to subtropical zone or warm temperate zone. Expand
Betulaceae from the Pliocene and Pleistocene of Southwest Alabama, Southeastern United States
Abstract Recent investigations of mid-Pliocene Citronelle Formation sites and a Pleistocene terrace deposit in southwestern Alabama have yielded fossils of the Betulaceae. Trullate (shield-shaped)Expand
Corylus, Carpinus, and Palaeocarpinus (Betulaceae) from the Middle Eocene Klondike Mountain and Allenby Formations of Northwestern North America
TLDR
The presence in the Okanogan Highlands floras of a suite of coryloid plants including both extinct and extant genera demonstrates that, like the birch subfamily Betuloideae, the subfamily Coryloideae was also a significant and diverse group in western North America during the middle Eocene. Expand
Phylogeny and Biogeography of Carpinus and Subfamily Coryloideae (Betulaceae)

TLDR
The phylogenetic results indicate a generalized biogeographic track between southeastern Europe and eastern Asia and one clade of Ostrya in the ITS tree, although discordance is found in the morphological data concerning this biogeographical relationship. Expand
Phylogeny of Carpinus and subfamily Coryloideae (Betulaceae) based on chloroplast and nuclear ribosomal sequence data
TLDR
Phylogenetic studies were conducted for Carpinus and the subfamily Coryloideae using sequences of the chloroplast matK gene, the trnL-trnF region, and the nuclear ribosomal ITS regions to suggest that Coryloidesae is monophyletic, and Ostryopsis is sister to the Car pinus - Ostrya clade, while the cpDNA tree generated is largely congruent with the previously published ITS results.
