Phylogenetics, Biogeography, and Classification of the Woodwardioid Ferns (Blechnaceae)

A comparison of the phylogenetic results with known fossil history suggests that the woodwardioid ferns first arose sometime in the late Cretaceous in North America at high latitudes, and a new classification is presented for the group, monophyletic and sister to the remainder of the Blechnaceae.

A new find of the fossil Cyclosorus from the Eocene of South China and its paleoclimatic implication

A new species, Cyclosorus scutum Naugolnykh, Wang, Han et Jin was discovered from the Eocene Changchang Formation of Hainan Island, South China and is described on the basis of sterile and fertile leaves, sori, sporangia and spores preserved in situ.

Osmunda cinnamomea (Osmundaceae) in the Upper Cretaceous of Western North America: Additional Evidence for Exceptional Species Longevity among Filicalean Ferns

This article provides an additional example of a well‐characterized fossil filicalean fern that can be confidently assigned to a species with living representatives, O. cinnamomea L.

Reconstruction of paleovegetation and paleoclimate in the Early and Middle Eocene, Hainan Island, China

Cainozoic ferns and their distribution

The phytogeographic distribution of Cainozoic ferns is reported based upon a critical re-appraisal of the macrofossil and mesofossil record also taking account of evidence from a few highly
