Abstract.— Polyploidy can have a huge impact on the evolution of species, and it is a common occurrence, especially in plants. The two types of polyploids—autopolyploids and allopolyploids—differ in the level of divergence between the genes that are brought together in the new polyploid lineage. Because allopolyploids are formed via hybridization, the homoeologous copies of genes within them are at least as divergent as orthologs in the parental species that came together to form them.

Phylogenomics reveals an extensive history of genome duplication in diatoms (Bacillariophyta)
TLDR
This work synthesized a relatively large but scattered body of evidence that, taken together, suggests that polyploidy may be common in diatoms, offering a framework for understanding the evolutionary roles of genome duplication in a group that likely harbors substantial genomic diversity.
Inference of Ancient Whole-Genome Duplications and the Evolution of Gene Duplication and Loss Rates.
TLDR
A full probabilistic approach for phylogenomic reconciliation-based WGD inference is developed, accounting for both gene tree and reconciliation uncertainty using a method based on the principle of amalgamated likelihood estimation.
Ancient whole genome duplications and the evolution of the gene duplication and loss rate
TLDR
A full probabilistic approach for phylogenomic reconciliation based WGD inference is developed, accounting for both gene tree and reconciliation uncertainty using a method based on the principle of amalgamated likelihood estimation.
Phylotranscriptomics reveals extensive gene duplication in the subtribe Gentianinae (Gentianaceae)
TLDR
The genome‐scale phylogeny is reconstructed and large‐scale gene duplication events for the subtribe Gentianinae (Gentianaceae) are identified, indicating that many of these duplicated genes likely arose from hybrid polyploidy, which might also account for some of the topological incongruences between nuclear and plastid phylogenies in Gentianinee.
The frequency and topology of pseudoorthologs
TLDR
This work introduces a model to study the probability and topologies of pseudoorthologs—duplicated genes that are mistaken for orthologs because they are present in a single copy in each sampled species, and suggests that pseudoorthologies are less of a problem for phylogenetics than currently believed.
Phylogenomics reveals an extensive history of genome duplication in diatoms (Bacillariophyta).
TLDR
The results suggest that WGD has played a major role in the evolution of diatom genomes and outline challenges in reconstructing paleopolyploid events in diatoms that offer a framework for understanding the impact of genome duplication in a group that likely harbors substantial genomic diversity.
The Complex History of Genome Duplication and Hybridization in North American Gray Treefrogs
TLDR
This study utilized anchored hybrid enrichment and high-throughput sequencing to capture hundreds of loci along with whole mitochondrial genomes to investigate the evolutionary history of the North American gray treefrog complex and determined that H. versicolor was most likely formed via autopolyploidization from a now extinct lineage of H. chrysoscelis.
Phylogenomic Relationships of Diploids and the Origins of Allotetraploids in Dactylorhiza (Orchidaceae)
TLDR
This work first investigates circumscription and relationships of diploid species in the genus using coalescent and maximum likelihood methods, and then group 16 allotetraploids by maximum affiliation to their putative parental diploids, implementing a method based on genotype likelihoods.
Phylogenomics of the olive tree (Olea europaea) disentangles ancient allo- and autopolyploidizations in Lamiales
TLDR
P phylogenomics is used to dissect the tempo and mode of duplications in the genome of the olive tree (Olea europaea), one of the first domesticated Mediterranean fruit trees, and show the power of phylogenomics to distinguish between allo- and auto- polyplodization events.
Reconciling event-labeled gene trees with MUL-trees and species networks.
TLDR
It is proved that any event-labeled gene tree can be reconciled with some network and that, under certain mild assumptions on the gene tree, the network can even be assumed to be multi-arc free.

From Gene Trees to a Dated Allopolyploid Network: Insights from the Angiosperm Genus Viola (Violaceae)
TLDR
The most parsimonious network topology is identified from a set of five competing scenarios differing in the interpretation of homoeolog extinctions and lineage sorting, based on fewest possible ghost subgenome lineages, least possible deviation from expected ploidy as inferred from available chromosome counts of the involved polyploid taxa.
Statistical inference of allopolyploid species networks in the presence of incomplete lineage sorting.
TLDR
2 new models for the statistical inference of the evolutionary history of allopolyploids are evaluated using simulations and demonstrated on 2 empirical data sets, both implemented in the BEAST framework.
Reconciliation with non-binary species trees.
TLDR
The first algorithms for reconciling binary gene trees with non-binary species trees under a duplication-loss parsimony model are presented and a dynamic programming algorithm which also minimizes the total number of losses is presented.
Bias in phylogenetic tree reconciliation methods: implications for vertebrate genome evolution
TLDR
It is shown that tree reconciliation methods are biased when the inferred gene tree is not correct, and these results cast doubt upon previous conclusions that vertebrate genome history has been marked by many ancient duplications and many recent gene losses.
Inferring polyploid phylogenies from multiply-labeled gene trees
TLDR
A heuristic method for computing a consensus tree of multiply-labeled trees and illustrates the applicability of the method using two collections of trees for plants of the genus Silene, that involve several allopolyploids at different levels.
Dating the origins of polyploidy events.
TLDR
Estimating the time of origin of polyploid species is important for understanding issues such as gene loss and changes in regulation and expression among homoeologous copies that coexist in a single genome owing topolyploidy.
Early genome duplications in conifers and other seed plants
TLDR
Analysis of transcriptomes from 24 gymnosperms and 3 outgroups indicates that polyploidy has contributed to the evolution of conifers and other gymnos perms, contrary to previous genomic research that reported an absence of polyploidsy in the ancestry of contemporary gymnOSperms.
Inferring Species Networks from Gene Trees in High-Polyploid North American and Hawaiian Violets (Viola, Violaceae)
TLDR
The most parsimonious species network and the fossil-based calibration of the homoeolog tree favored monophyly of the high polyploids, which has resulted from allodecaploidization 9–14 Ma, involving sympatric ancestors from the extant Viola sections Chamaemelanium, Plagiostigma, and Viola.
Reconstructing patterns of reticulate evolution in plants.
TLDR
Current models and methods that allow hybrid speciation to be detected and reconstructed are discussed, with a focus on how lineage sorting and meiotic and sexual recombination affect network reconstruction.
