Abstract.— Species in Mimulus section Erythranthe (monkeyflowers) have become model systems for the study of the genetic basis of ecological adaptations. In this study, we pursued two goals. First, we reconstructed the phylogeny of species in Erythranthe using both DNA sequences from the ribosomal DNA ITS and ETS and AFLPs. Data from rDNA sequences support the monophyly of the section, including M. parishii, but provide little support for relationships within it. Analyses using AFLP data… 
Ancient and recent introgression shape the evolutionary history of pollinator adaptation and speciation in a model monkeyflower radiation (Mimulus section Erythranthe)
TLDR
The phylogenomic results reveal extensive reticulation throughout the evolutionary history of a classic monkeyflower radiation, suggesting that natural selectionassembles and maintains species-diagnostic traits and barriers in the face of gene flow.
Ancient and recent introgression shape the evolutionary history of pollinator adaptation and speciation in a model monkeyflower radiation (Mimulus section Erythranthe)
TLDR
This study uses genome-wide capture of nuclear gene sequences, plus skimming of organellar sequences, to investigate the phylogenomics of monkeyflowers in Mimulus section Erythranthe, revealing extensive reticulation throughout the evolutionary history of a classic monkeyflower radiation.
Constrained lability in floral evolution: counting convergent origins of hummingbird pollination in Penstemon and Keckiella.
TLDR
In the clade of Penstemon and segregate genera, pollination syndromes are well defined among the 284 species, and penstemons show great evolutionary lability with respect to acquiring hummingbird pollination; this syndrome acts as an attractor to which species with large sympetalous nectar-rich flowers have frequently been drawn.
Rapid speciation and the evolution of hummingbird pollination in neotropical Costus subgenus Costus (Costaceae): evidence from nrDNA ITS and ETS sequences.
TLDR
A molecular clock approach suggests that diversification of the neotropical clade has been recent and rapid and that it coincides with dramatic climatic and geologic changes, Andean orogeny, and the closing of the Panama isthmus that occurred in the Pliocene and Pleistocene epochs.
The phylogeny of yuccas.
TLDR
This is the first extensive nuclear DNA based assessment of the phylogenetic relationships of Yucca, using AFLP markers to recover the phylogeny of 87 samples representing 38 Yucca taxa and found a topology consistent with morphological classification at the section level.
Speciation within Columnea section Angustiflora (Gesneriaceae): islands, pollinators and climate.
TLDR
The results indicate that species in section Angustiflorae have likely diverged as a result of allopatric, parapatic, and sympatric speciation, with both biotic and abiotic forces driving morphological and phenological divergence.
Parallel floral adaptations to pollination by fungus gnats within the genus Mitella (Saxifragaceae).
TLDR
The results suggest that the flower-visiting fungus gnats have caused convergent selection for the saucer-shaped flower repeatedly evolved within the lineage Heucherina, a group of saxifragaceous genera.
Diversification rates in Antirrhineae (Plantaginaceae): The contribution of range shifts and pollination modes
TLDR
Long-distance dispersal was a strong contributor to the diversity within Antirrhineae, and age-range correlation analysis showed young nodes had more range overlap than older nodes in the phylogeny, suggesting sympatric speciation as a contributing factor to the diversification of the tribe.
Patterns of evolution in western North American Mimulus (Phrymaceae).
TLDR
Polyploidy and aneuPLoidy events are concluded to have played a relatively small role in the evolution of persistent lineages in Mimulus.
Biogeography and genetic consequences of anagenetic speciation of Rhaphithamnus venustus (Verbenaceae) in the Juan Fernández archipelago, Chile: insights from AFLP and SSR markers
TLDR
The hypothesis that during the course of anagenetic speciation the insular R haphithamnus venustus has recovered from any reduction of genetic diversity associated with colonization of the Juan Fernandez archipelago is supported.

Evolution and homology of bird pollination syndromes in Erythrina (Leguminosae)
TLDR
Despite the general resemblance in flower and inflorescence morphology among species with the same pollination type, homology assessment reveals that petal morphology and size, and calyx and pollen morphology differ.
MOLECULAR EVOLUTION, ADAPTIVE RADIATION, AND GEOGRAPHIC DIVERSIFICATION IN THE AMPHIATLANTIC FAMILY RAPATEACEAE: EVIDENCE FROM ndhF SEQUENCES AND MORPHOLOGY
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny for representatives of 14 genera, based on sequence variation in the chloroplast‐encoded ndhF gene, suggests that infrequent long‐distance dispersal combined with vicariance accounts for speciation atop tepuis in the Stegolepis alliance.
Molecular analysis of phylogenetic relationships among Myrmecophytic macaranga species (Euphorbiaceae).
TLDR
A molecular investigation of the plant partners' phylogeny of the Macaranga-Crematogaster system suggests multiple rather than a single evolutionary origin of myrmecophytism, at least one reversal from obligate myrmicine genus Crem atogaster to nonmyrmecoptera, and one loss of mutualistic specifity.

TLDR
Results suggest that genes of large effect on pollinator preference have contributed to floral evolution and premating reproductive isolation in these monkeyflowers, contributing to growing evidence that adaptation and reproductive isolation may often involve major genes.
Pollinator Relationships, Biogeography, and Phylogenetics
TLDR
From more than 100 hours spent observing visitors to Aphelandra flowers, it is documented that they are indeed pollinated by hummingbirds.
Phylogenetics of Lopezia (Onagraceae): evidence from chloroplast DNA restriction sites
TLDR
The chloroplast DNA results indicate that "snapping" stamens, a means of mechanically depositing pollen on visiting pollinators, have evolved only once in the genus Lopezia.
ITS Base Sequence Phylogeny in Bidens (Asteraceae): Evidence for the Continental Relatives of Hawaiian and Marquesan Bidens
TLDR
The continental sister group of Polynesian Bidens appears to be a group of Latin American herbaceous species with determinate growth in section Psilocarpaea rather than the indeterminate woody vines of section Greenmania, which suggests that woodiness and indeterminates growth are apomorphic in Polynesia Bidens.
Adaptive Radiation of Reproductive Characteristics in Angiosperms, I: Pollination Mechanisms
TLDR
In angiosperms, the adaptive significance of differences between most higher categories, as well as between a large proportion of related species, is most probably associated with reproductive efficiency and successful establishment of seedlings rather than with any of the morphological characteristics of the vegetative parts.
Phylogeny and quaternary history of the European montane/alpine endemic Soldanella (Primulaceae) based on ITS and AFLP variation.
TLDR
Estimates of divergence times suggest a late Quaternary origin of the genus Soldanella, and it is hypothesized that the latter differentiated in allopatric regions of expansion during glacials, while the former experienced secondary contact at lower elevations in more southern refugia.
Redefining Phrymaceae: the placement of Mimulus, tribe Mimuleae, and Phryma.
TLDR
In light of the molecular evidence, it is clear that species of Phrymaceae have undergone two geographically distinct radiations; one in western North America and another in Australia (about 30 species).
