Despite previous efforts to elucidate relationships within the Pyreae (Rosaceae), relationships among the major sub-lineages, generic limits, and divergence times have remained uncertain. The present study greatly expands phylogenetic analyses of the Pyreae by using a combination of 11 chloroplast regions plus nuclear ribosomal ITS sequences from 486 individuals representing 331 species and 27 genera. Maximum likelihood and bayesian analyses generally support existing generic boundary, although… Expand
Molecular phylogeny of Cotoneaster (Rosaceae) inferred from nuclear ITS and multiple chloroplast sequences
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses were conducted to test infrageneric classifications of this genus using DNA sequence data from the nuclear ITS region and three chloroplast intergenic spacer regions and inferred that a deciduous habit, glabrous fruit, white anthers, erect and light pink petals, and white filaments are plesiomorphic character states in Cotoneaster. Expand
Diversification of Rosaceae since the Late Cretaceous based on plastid phylogenomics.
TLDR
The robust phylogenetic backbone and time estimates the authors provide establish a framework for future comparative studies on rosaceous evolution and highlight the importance of improving sequence alignment and the use of appropriate substitution models in plastid phylogenomics. Expand
Towards resolving the evolutionary history of Caucasian pears (Pyrus, Rosaceae)—Phylogenetic relationships, divergence times and leaf trait evolution
TLDR
Using a representative taxon sampling of Pyrus from the Caucasus, Europe and Asia, phylogenetic relationships in the genus are reconstructed based on multiple plastid regions and several independent transitions from broad‐ to narrow‐shaped leaves in Pyrus are revealed. Expand
Diversification of almonds, peaches, plums and cherries - molecular systematics and biogeographic history of Prunus (Rosaceae).
TLDR
The phylogeny of Prunus is examined, including an expanded sampling of species from tropical regions in Southeast Asia and the Americas, using sequences from four plastid markers and the nuclear ribosomal ITS region and molecular dating estimates suggest that the crown clade that includes the temperate deciduous crop species is older than the one that including the tropical evergreen species. Expand
Molecular phylogenetics and historical biogeography of Sorbus sensu stricto (Rosaceae).
TLDR
It is suggested that apomixis, polyploidization, and hybridization may have combined with the multistage uplifting of Himalayas and H-D Mountains (and the subsequent increases in geologic, ecological and climatic heterogeneity) to drive the striking species diversity of Sorbus in this region. Expand
Phylogeny of Crataegus (Rosaceae) based on 257 nuclear loci and chloroplast genomes: evaluating the impact of hybridization
TLDR
Despite the high heterogeneity of individual gene trees, this work corroborate earlier evidence for the importance of hybridization in the evolution of Crataegus and obtained well-supported phylogenies from plastome sequences and from a minimum of 244 low copy-number nuclear loci. Expand
Phylogeny of the Rosidae: A dense taxon sampling analysis
TLDR
This study combines sequences from 9300 species, representing 2775 genera, 138 families, and 17 orders into a supermatrix, and shows the value of a botanically informed bioinformatics approach and dense taxonomic sampling for resolving rosid relationships. Expand
Phylogenomic analyses in the apple genus Malus s.l. reveal widespread hybridization and allopolyploidy driving the diversifications, with insights into the complex biogeographic history in the Northern Hemisphere
TLDR
The conflict analysis demonstrated that ILS, hybridization, and allopolyploidy could explain the widespread nuclear gene tree discordance and provides a valuable evolutionary framework for the breeding and crop improvement of apples and their close relatives. Expand
Phylogenomic analyses based on genome-skimming data reveal cyto-nuclear discordance in the evolutionary history of Cotoneaster (Rosaceae).
TLDR
Chloroplast genome and nuclear data confidently resolved relationships of this genus into two major clades which largely supported current classification based on morphological evidence, however, conflicts between the chloroplast genomes and low-copy nuclear phylogenies were observed in both the species level and clade level. Expand
Molecular Evidence for Natural Hybridization between Cotoneaster dielsianus and C. glaucophyllus
TLDR
This study provided convincing evidence for natural hybridization between C. dielsianus and C. glaucophyllus, and suggested that species integrity could be maintained for these Cotoneaster species, but attentions should be kept for this new-born hybrid. Expand

Phylogeny of subtribe Pyrinae (formerly the Maloideae, Rosaceae): Limited resolution of a complex evolutionary history
Generic relationships in the Pyrinae (equivalent to subfamily Maloideae) were assessed with six chloroplast regions and five nuclear regions. We also plotted 12 non-molecular characters ontoExpand
Systematic and evolutionary implications of rbcL sequence variation in Rosaceae
TLDR
RbcL-based phylogenies suggest that chromosome numbers are more reliable indicators of some generic alliances than the more commonly used fruit types and that the subfamily Maloideae may have descended from spiraeoid ancestors and the pome is derived from follicular or capsular fruit types. Expand
Phylogeny and classification of Rosaceae
TLDR
Strong support for monophyly of groups corresponding closely to many previously recognized tribes and subfamilies is found, but no previous classification was entirely supported, and relationships among the strongly supported clades were weakly resolved and/or conflicted between some data sets. Expand
A phylogeny of Photinia sensu lato (Rosaceae) and related genera based on nrITS and cpDNA analysis
TLDR
Incongruence between chloroplast and nuclear data supports the hypothesis of a hybrid origin of the monospecific genus Heteromeles, with a recent ancestor of extant Photinia as the probable male parent. Expand
Evolution of the angiosperms: calibrating the family tree
TLDR
Angiosperm divergence times are estimated using non–parametric rate smoothing and a three–gene dataset covering ca. Expand
Correlates of Diversification in the Plant Clade Dipsacales: Geographic Movement and Evolutionary Innovations
TLDR
These results argue against a simple deterministic relationship between dispersal and diversification: like other factors that may influence the probability of speciation and/or extinction, the impact of dispersal on diversification rates depends on being in the right place at the right time. Expand
The age and diversification of the angiosperms re-revisited.
TLDR
These analyses provide a new comprehensive source of reference dates for major angiosperm clades that are generally younger than other recent molecular estimates and very close to dates inferred from the fossil record. Expand
The tortoise and the hare II: relative utility of 21 noncoding chloroplast DNA sequences for phylogenetic analysis.
TLDR
The results of this study show that a survey using as few as three representative taxa can be predictive of the amount of phylogenetic information offered by a cpDNA region and that rate heterogeneity exists among noncoding cpDNA regions. Expand
Rosaceous Chamaebatiaria-like foliage from the Paleogene of western North America
TLDR
Analysis of the foliar and reproductive characters of the extant species of these genera indicates that the two genera could be closely related and the assignment of Chamaebatia to Rosoideae invalid. Expand
Molecular Reappraisal of Relationships Between Crataegus and Mespilus (Rosaceae, Pyreae)—Two Genera or One?
TLDR
Examination of chloroplast and nuclear data supports the hypothesis of a hybrid origin for Mespilus canescens, with Crataegus brachyacantha or its ancestor as the maternal parent, and maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian analyses all corroborate the sister group relationship between CrATAegus and M espilus.
