New insights into the diversity, taxonomy and history of the fern genus Trichomanes (Hymenophyllaceae, Polypodiidae), with a focus on Africa and the western Indian Ocean
The results support the monophyly of Trichomanes including all the sampled species attributed to the genus, but also suggest the inclusion of the species Abrodictyum cellulosum, revealing a morphological diversity of the genus greater than what was traditionally recognized, and highlighting the importance of the campanulate sorus as a generic diagnostic character.
Insights into long-distance dispersal and ecological and morphological evolution in the fern genus Microgramma from phylogenetic inference
The results show five clades in Microgramma that do not corroborate any previously proposed infrageneric classification system, and several morphological traits appear to be homoplastic, including leaf dimorphism.
Insights on long-distance dispersal, ecological and morphological evolution in the fern genus Microgramma from phylogenetic inferences
The results show five clades in Microgramma that do not corroborate any infrageneric classification system proposed, and several morphological traits seem to be homoplastic, such as leaf dimorphism, which is not seen in its closest related genera.

Abstract. The classification and typification of all Australian ferns and lycophytes is updated to reflect the Pteridophyte Phylogeny Group I classification and the International Code of Nomenclature
End of an enigma: Aenigmopteris belongs in Tectaria (Tectariaceae: Polypodiopsida)
Based on the analysis of three chloroplast DNA regions, it is demonstrated that Aenigmopteris dubia and A. elegans are closely related and deeply imbedded in Tectaria.
Molecular data, based on an exhaustive species sampling of the fern genus Rumohra (Dryopteridaceae), reveal a biogeographical history mostly shaped by dispersal and several cryptic species in the widely distributed Rumohra adiantiformis
This book presents a meta-anatomy of plant taxonomy and nature conservation from a perspective of evolutionary biology, ecology and natural history.
A global assessment of terrestrial alien ferns (Polypodiophyta): species’ traits as drivers of naturalisation and invasion
A global inventory of terrestrial alien true ferns (Polypodiophyta) comprising 157 species is developed and it is shown that a ground-dwelling life form, reproductive plasticity, tolerance for disturbance and varied light conditions, and a broad introduced range were important determinants of invasiveness in alien f Ferns.


Phylogeny and biogeography of exindusiate Andean Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae).
The monophyletic exindusiate Andean Polystichum lineage diverged from a Mexican lineage in the middle Miocene and diversified in the central Andes before dispersing northward, corresponding with episodes of uplift in the tropical Andes.
Origin of Hawaiian Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae) in the context of a world phylogeny.
The origin of the Hawaiian species of Polystichum is the result of multiple migrations to the islands, rather than single migrations yielding nearly all the local diversity as in the angiosperms, which provides a modern test of the premise that propagule vagility has a central role in determining pattern of evolution.
Phylogeny and historical biogeography of the lastreopsid ferns (Dryopteridaceae).
Diversification among the main clades of the lastreopsid ferns was influenced by climatic and geological changes in the southern hemisphere, and taxonomic recognition of Parapolystichum is warranted to preserve the monophyly of Lastreopsis.
Historical biogeography of Melastomataceae: the roles of Tertiary migration and long-distance dispersal.
Contradicting earlier hypotheses, the current distribution of Melastomataceae is thus best explained by Neogene long-distance dispersal, not Gondwana fragmentation.
Circumscription and phylogeny of the Elaphoglossum ciliatum group (E. sect. Lepidoglossa, Dryopteridaceae) based on cpDNA sequences
This study was an attempt to find a clade within Elaphoglossum with a convenient size for monographic study, and resolved a tenspecies clade, which included the three original species.
