A cytotaxonomic study was made of 90 fern species of Yunnan, southwestern China, based on collections from northwestern, central, and southwestern Yunnan and a few Cheng's collections. The results verified most of the formerly reported basic chromosome numbers of Chinese genera, and recorded for the first time the basic numbers ofGymnogrammitis andSorolepidium and Chinese members of several other genera. Cytotaxonomy of some problematical genera was discussed. Biogeographical relationships… 
Cytotaxonomic Studies on Thirteen Ferns of Taiwan
TLDR
The present results are the first cytological records of Taiwanese plants of the taxa, and the chromosome counts for the remaining two taxa matched those previously reported from Taiwan.
Phylogenetic Positions of the Enigmatic Asiatic Fern Genera Diplaziopsis and Rhachidosorus from Analyses of Four Plastid Genes
TLDR
Four plastid gene sequence analyses supported a sister relationship between Diplaziopsis, Rhachidosorus and the North American Homalosorus, the monophyletic group of the newly-examined genera is an early diverging lineage of Woodsiaceae, and far away from athyrioid ferns.
Cytotaxonomic Study of 12 Species in the Polypodiaceae from Southern China
TLDR
Chromosome numbers and reproductive biologies of 12 fern species from eight genera in the Polypodiaceae from the southern region of China were investigated and four records are new cytotypes are reported for the first time.
Cytotaxonomic study of genusHymenasplenium (Aspleniaceae) in Xishuangbanna, Southwestern China
TLDR
This work reports for the first time the sexual diploids of H. apogamum, which are only apogamous elsewhere in east Asia, Himalayas and Indochina, and most of the above species have chromosome numbers based on x=39, indicating that this area is one of the diversity centers of Hymenasplenium.
Chromosome study of the fern genus Cyrtomium (Dryopteridaceae)
TLDR
Twelve chromosome counts representing 11 taxa were made and results were used to show that C. uniseriale should be reduced to varietal status under C. balansae and a high level of differentiation is a distinct characteristic in Cyrtomium.
Historical biogeography of the fern genus Deparia (Athyriaceae) and its relation with polyploidy.
Phylogeography of rare fern Polystichum glaciale endemic to the subnival zone of the Sino-Himalaya
TLDR
It is concluded that extremely complex topography of the Sino-Himalaya region and highly fragmented subnival habitat have played a critical role in shaping phylogeographical structure and genetic differentiation of P. glaciale.
A phylogenetic and morphological study of the Tectaria fuscipes group (Tectariaceae), with description of a new species
TLDR
A new species found in southern China and Vietnam is described here as T. fungii, which is similar to the T. fuscipes complex and T. kusukusensis, but differs from the former mainly by its brown-castaneous lanceolate stipe scales and from the latter by having nearly hairless laminae.
Chromosome numbers of 13 species in the genus Dryopteris (Dryopteridaceae) from Yunnan, China
TLDR
The results support the establishment of the section Caespitosae S. G. Lu, and indicate a high percentage of the diploid apomict cytotype in Dryopteris from the Himalayan region of China.
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

Polyploidy in pteridophytes.
Chromosome studies of pteridophytes had their major impetus in the work of Irene Manton (1) who was the first to show the far-reaching significance of Polyploidy in these plants. Her work was
Genetic variation in agamosporous fern Pteris cretica L. in Japan
TLDR
Recurrent hybridizations contribute toward generating genetic variation among agamosporous species, P. cretica, which appear to have participated in crosses with P. kidoi to produce 33 clones.
CHROMOSOMES AND SYSTEMATICS OF ASPLENIUM SECT. HYMENASPLENIUM (ASPLENIACEAE)
TLDR
Decisions on the taxonomic status of the species of section Hymenasplenium were facilitated by cytological observations, and evidence for the addition to the section of several other species is presented.
The systematic position ofAsplenium cardiophyllum (Aspleniaceae)
TLDR
Asplenium cardiophyllum is a morphologically unusual species with simple leaves and anastomosing venation, and is often placed in the segregate genus Boniniella, but character comparisons were made of vascular anatomy, raphides in leaf epidermis, chromosome number and perispore of this species and those of Asplenium sect.Hymenasplenium.
Classification ofAthyrium and allied genera of Japan

  • 2006
TLDR
The classification ofAthyrium sensu lato is revised on the basis of evidence from anatomical and morphological observations, and stipe base, groove of frond axis, laminar margin, venation, sorus and dermal appendage are important to classify the genus and elucidate the relationship within it.
Sporogenesis, Reproductive Mode, and Cytotaxonomy of Some Species of Sphenomeris, Lindsaea, and Tapeinidium (Lindsaeaceae)
TLDR
The cytotaxonomy and reproductive biology of Lindsaeaceae are still controversial and even confusing, and no cytological evidence is available for the presence or absence of alternation of nuclear phases associated with either sexual or agamosporous reproduction in LindSaeaceae.
ELECTROPHORESIS IS MODIFYING OUR CONCEPTS OF EVOLUTION IN HOMOSPOROUS PTERIDOPHYTES
TLDR
The accumulated data suggest that the genetic system of homosporous pteridophytes differs fundamentally from that of seed plants, which may be the result of repeated cycles of allopolyploidy followed by gene silencing and extinction of progenitor taxa.
Cytotaxonomical atlas of the pteridophyta
TLDR
Cytotaxonomical atlas of the pteridophyta is an attempt to define the role of “spatially aggregating substance” in the biota and its role in the environment.
