Abstract Most floral diversity in the core eudicots is based on a groundplan that includes among its most distinctive elements a bipartite perianth and pentamerous merosity combined with a bicarpellate gynoecium. To obtain insights into the origins of this groundplan, the evolution of its structural components in Hamamelidoideae (Hamamelidaceae, Saxifragales, core eudicots) is explored. Phylogenetic hypotheses were obtained from independent analyses of morphological and molecular data, and from… Expand
Evolution and biogeographic diversification of the witch-hazel genus (Hamamelis L., Hamamelidaceae) in the Northern Hemisphere.
TLDR
The evolution of the eastern Asian and eastern North American disjunction of the witch-hazel genus Hamamelis L. (Hamamelidaceae) was examined through phylogenetic and biogeographic analyses and resulted in a phylogeny of the genus with higher resolution and support values. Expand
Homology and Evolution of Petals in the Core Eudicots
TLDR
The distribution of perianth characters demonstrates that the currently held view that petals originated from stamens in the core eudicots is not consistent with the predominance of bract-derived petals (bracteopetals), and the relationship between petal morphology and the molecular basis for petaloidy is discussed.

Flower Structure and Trends of Evolution in Eudicots and Their Major Subclades1
TLDR
It is shown that features that are potential key innovations, because they characterize strongly diversified clades, are also sporadically present in species-poor clades more to the base of the phylogenetic tree, indicating that what appear as key innovations in certain groups may be present in latent form long before their manifestation as a key innovation.

A Total Evidence Phylogeny of the Arctoidea (Carnivora: Mammalia): Relationships Among Basal Taxa
TLDR
Phylogenetic positions for fossil taxa indicate that several taxa previously described as early members of extant families (e.g., Bathygale and Plesictis) are likely stem taxa at the base of the Arctoidea. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships and character evolution analysis of Saxifragales using a supermatrix approach.
TLDR
The results indicate that in some cases the evolution of angiosperms might be conditioned by constraints that have been so far overlooked and provided new insights into character evolution that are not obvious with smaller trees. Expand
A metacalibrated time-tree documents the early rise of flowering plant phylogenetic diversity.
TLDR
This time-frame documents an early phylogenetic proliferation that led to the establishment of major angiosperm lineages, and the origin of over half of extant families, in the Cretaceous. Expand
Phylogeny of extant and fossil Juglandaceae inferred from the integration of molecular and morphological data sets.
TLDR
The results clearly show that the amount of missing data in any given taxon is not by itself an operational guideline for excluding fossils from analysis, and each of the methods provided reasonable placement of both fossils and simulated "artificial fossils" in the phylogeny previously inferred only from extant taxa.

The fossil pollen record of Hamamelidaceae in the Iberian Peninsula
TLDR
The present review contributes to improving the accuracy of identification of Cenozoic Hamamelidaceae in standard palynological studies, which should help trace its poorly understood fossil and evolutionary history. Expand
Evolutionary diversification of the flowers in angiosperms.
TLDR
A review of floral diversification in the different organs and organ complexes through the major clades of extant angiosperms shows how superficial and fragmentary knowledge on floral structure in many clades is. Expand
Neogene Corylopsis seeds from eastern Tennessee
A new fossil species of Corylopsis (Hamamelidaceae), C. grisea Quirk & Hermsen sp. nov, based on seeds from the early Pliocene Gray Fossil Site (GFS), eastern Tennessee, USA, is described. TheExpand

Allonia decandra: Floral remains of the tribeHamamelideae (Hamamelidaceae) from Campanian strata of southeastern USA
TLDR
The occurrence of fossils assignable to Loropetalinae during the Campanian documents the existence of Hamamelidaceae with a level of floral organization and character evolution equivalent to that of extant genera, early in the evolutionary history of the family. Expand
Gunnerales are sister to other core eudicots: implications for the evolution of pentamery.
TLDR
Parsimony reconstructions of perianth merosity demonstrate lability among early-diverging eudicots and further indicate that a dimerous peranth could be the immediate precursor to the pentamerous condition characteristic of core eudicot. Expand
Phylogeny of Saxifragales (angiosperms, eudicots): analysis of a rapid, ancient radiation.
TLDR
It is shown that estimated branch lengths during the initial diversification of Saxifragales are exceedingly short, and it is estimated that acquiring sufficient sequence data to resolve these relationships would require an extraordinary effort, and a limit to achievable branch support is suggested. Expand
The earliest fossil evidence of the Hamamelidaceae: Late Cretaceous (Turonian) inflorescences and fruits of Altingioideae.
TLDR
Fossilized pistillate inflorescences, fruits, and pollen grains from the Turonian of New Jersey are described as a new genus, Microaltingia, in the family Hamamelidaceae, and cladistic analysis suggests affinities with subfamily Altingioideae, which includes the modern genera Liquidambar and Altingia. Expand
The Gunnera Flower: Key to Eudicot Diversification or Response to Pollination Mode?
TLDR
Floral evolution of Gunneraceae, as well as that of other wind‐pollinated, basally placed eudicots, is best seen as a unique specialization linked to this pollination mode. Expand
Patterns of floral evolution in the early diversification of non-magnoliid dicotyledons (eudicots)
TLDR
Evidence from morphology and molecular sequence data indicates that extant Ranunculidae as well as “lower” Hamamelididae and several other families are basal in this group of dicotyledons, and cyclic floral architecture is probably basic for eudicots as a whole. Expand
The importance of fossils in elucidating seed plant phylogeny and macroevolution
TLDR
Numerical parsimony methods are used to analyze a data set amassed for a cladistic study of living and fossil seed plants, variously modified by subtraction and re-addition of fossil groups to gain insights on the controversial question of the value of fossils in understanding phylogeny and macroevolution.

Development of Inflorescences and Flowers in Buxaceae and the Problem of Perianth Interpretation
TLDR
In this investigation, development and structure of inflorescences and flowers of representatives of all buxaceous genera were studied comparatively to gain a better understanding of flower structure in Buxaceae and their relationships to basal eudicots. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships in the Hamamelidaceae: Evidence from the nucleotide sequences of the plastid genematK
TLDR
In the Hamamelidoideae, thematK phylogeny supports the monophyly of several previously recognized groups with modifications, including the tribes Eustigmateae, Fothergilleae, and the subtribe Dicoryphinae, however, theHamamelideae as traditionally circumscribed is polyphyletic. Expand
Fossil Corylopsis and Fothergilla Leaves (Hamamelidaceae) from the Lower Eocene Flora of Republic, Washington, U.S.A., and Their Evolutionary and Biogeographic Significance
TLDR
The occurrence at Republic of these two hamamelid plants underscores the diversity of the northwestern “Okanogan Highlands” flora of British Columbia, Canada, and Washington State, and demonstrates the Early Eocene presence of two disjunct Hamamelid genera. Expand
