The Biogeography of Polyploid Ferns Across Space and Time
Abstract. A review of work on the origin and phylogenetic relationships of six systems of allopolyploid homosporous ferns and their progenitors serves as the basis for assessing the history and
From Genomes to Populations: A Meta-analysis and Review of Fern Population Genetics
Contrary to early hypotheses, natural fern populations are not restricted to gametophytic selfing and instead regularly outcross and it is found that temperate regions are the most thoroughly sampled and that most studies have used allozymes, with a shift in marker usage in the 2000s and 2010s.

The results suggest a basal split of Platycerium into two well-supported clades, which comprises species occurring in Africa, Madagascar, and South America, whereas the second clade contains exclusively Australasian species.
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.
New Zealand's pteridophyte flora—Plants of ancient lineage but recent arrival?
Present-day distributions in New Zealand suggest that ferns have greater dispersal potential than flowering plants, and that pteridophyte distributions are more heavily influenced by temperature, rainfall, and geothermal activity than by geological history.

Allozymic Divergence in North American Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae)
Because genetically similar species of Polystichum are allopatric or at least allotopic, a model of geographic speciation, perhaps with an edaphic component, is proposed for North American PolystICHum.
Asian origin for Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae) based on rbcL sequences
The phylogenetic and divergence time estimation results lead us to suggest that Polystichum s.l. originated in Asia in the late Late Cretacous and migrated into other places in the world in early Eocene.
Phylogeographical patterns shed light on evolutionary process in South America
The results suggest a highly complex mosaic of phylogeographical patterns in South America, which is suggestive of high levels of undocumented species diversity.
