The complex distributions of morphological character states in the Indo-Pacific palm tribe Areceae (Arecaceae; Arecoideae) are potentially challenging for the delimitation of its genera. In the first exhaustive sampling of all 65 genera of the Areceae, we examined relationships of two of the tribe's most problematic genera, Heterospathe and Rhopaloblaste, using portions of the low-copy nuclear genes phosphoribulokinase (PRK) and RNA-polymerase II subunit B (RPB2). Both genera fell within a… 
Molecular phylogenetics of the palm subtribe Ptychospermatinae (Arecaceae).
TLDR
The phylogenetic hypothesis suggests that the Ptychospermatinae diverged into six major clades with repeated radiations into Australia and the western Pacific.
Evolution of stamen number in Ptychospermatinae (Arecaceae): insights from a new molecular phylogeny of the subtribe.
TLDR
The optimization of stamen number on the phylogeny highlighted the high level of interspecific variability, showing that the character is highly labile and raising questions about the evolutionary and functional significance of this lability.
Molecular phylogeny and biogeography of Holcoglossum (Orchidaceae: Aeridinae) based on nuclear ITS, and chloroplast trnL-F and matK
TLDR
Variance analyses and molecular phylogeny suggest that Holcoglossum dispersed from tropical regions to the Hengduan Mountains and then radiated there as a result of the uplift of Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau.
Phylogenetic Analyses of Clematis (Ranunculaceae) Based on Sequences of Nuclear Ribosomal ITS and Three Plastid Regions
TLDR
The results in general do not support previous infrageneric classifications based on morphological characters and suggest significant convergence in floral and vegetative characters in Clematis, yet Bayesian dating suggests a relatively ancient origin of the genus in the Oligocene, yet a relatively recent species radiation of the crownClematis in the Miocene.
Biogeographic disjunction between eastern Asia and North America in the Adiantum pedatum complex (Pteridaceae).
TLDR
The eastern Asian-North American disjunction in the complex is inferred to be the result of two intercontinental migrations, one from eastern Asia into North America in the late Tertiary and the other from North America back to eastern Asia in the Pleistocene.
Molecular phylogeny of Cotoneaster (Rosaceae) inferred from nuclear ITS and multiple chloroplast sequences
TLDR
P phylogenetic analyses were conducted to test infrageneric classifications of this genus using DNA sequence data from the nuclear ITS region and three chloroplast intergenic spacer regions and inferred that a deciduous habit, glabrous fruit, white anthers, erect and light pink petals, and white filaments are plesiomorphic character states in Cotoneaster.
A phylogenetic analysis of palm subtribe Archontophoenicinae (Arecaceae) based on 14 DNA regions
TLDR
The results strongly support a clade composed of all species of Archontophoenix, Actinokentia, Chambeyronia and Kentiopsis, but raise the question of whether Actinorhytis, the fifth genus, should remain in ArchontPhoenicinae.
Resolving relationships within the palm subfamily Arecoideae (Arecaceae) using plastid sequences derived from next-generation sequencing.
TLDR
The plastome phylogeny recovered here provides robust resolution of previously ambiguous studies and new insights into palm evolution.
Mid-Tertiary dispersal, not Gondwanan vicariance explains distribution patterns in the wax palm subfamily (Ceroxyloideae: Arecaceae).
TLDR
Data do not support Pleistocene climatic changes as drivers for speciation in the Andean-centered Phytelepheae as previously proposed, and Divergence time estimates based on penalized likelihood and Bayesian dating methods indicate that Gondwanan vicariance is highly unlikely as an explanation for basic disjunctions in tribe Ceroxyleae.
Molecular phylogeny, divergence time estimates, and historical biogeography of Circaea (Onagraceae) in the Northern Hemisphere.
TLDR
Parsimony and Bayesian analyses support that Circaea is monophyletic; higher taxon diversity of Circaea in eastern Asia was probably caused by geologic and ecological changes during the late Tertiary in the Northern Hemisphere.

A phylogenetic analysis of tribe Areceae (Arecaceae) using two low-copy nuclear genes
TLDR
A phylogenetic study of the largest tribe of palms, the Areceae, was conducted using sequences of two low-copy nuclear genes to test the monophyly of tribe areceae with nuclear data, to explore relationships among its subtribes, and to identify other monophyletic groups.
Molecular phylogeny of the palm genus Chamaedorea, based on the low-copy nuclear genes PRK and RPB2.
TLDR
The first phylogenetic analysis of Chamaedorea is carried out, the largest neotropical genus of palms, using sequence data from the low-copy nuclear genes encoding phosphoribulokinase and the second largest subunit of RNA polymerase II to generate several well supported monophyletic groups.
Infrafamilial classifications and characters in Araliaceae: Insights from the phylogenetic analysis of nuclear (ITS) and plastid (trnL-trnF) sequence data
TLDR
Parsimony and Bayesian-inference analyses suggest that there are three major lineages of Araliaceae, and that these lineages generally correspond with the centers of diversity for the family.
Low-copy nuclear DNA, phylogeny and the evolution of dichogamy in the betel nut palms and their relatives (Arecinae; Arecaceae).
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a perceived bimodal distribution of the subtribe across Wallace's line does not in fact exist, and character optimizations indicate that the evolution of protogyny, an unusual condition in palms, is potentially correlated with a large radiation in the genus Pinanga.
Molecular Phylogenetics of Tribe Geonomeae (Arecaceae) Using Nuclear DNA Sequences of Phosphoribulokinase and RNA Polymerase II
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses were performed on six genera and 46 species of the Neotropical palm tribe Geonomeae and outgroups composed of 14 species from the Arecoidae, two from the Ceroxyloideae, and one from the Phytelephantoideae adding support to the previously reported monophyly of the tribe.
Molecular systematics of Iridaceae: evidence from four plastid DNA regions.
TLDR
In the combined tree, all subfamilies were resolved as monophyletic, except Nivenioidae that formed a grade in which Ixioideae were embedded, and this subfamily also lacks clear morphological synapomorphies and is highly heterogeneous, so it is difficult to develop a strong case on nonmolecular grounds for their monophyly.
Molecular phylogenetics of Calamus (Palmae) and related rattan genera based on 5S nrDNA spacer sequence data.
TLDR
The findings indicate that generic circumscriptions require revision, and a nomenclatural solution was not sought at this stage because inadequate sampling and lack of support at basal nodes suggested that the topologies obtained might not be entirely reliable.
Intergeneric and infrafamilial phylogeny of subfamily Monsteroideae (Araceae) revealed by chloroplast trnL-F sequences.
TLDR
The chloroplast trnL-F region was used as an independent data set for phylogenetic analysis of 118 aroid taxa and used as a basis for an interspecific phylogenetic study of Rhaphidophora Hassk.

TLDR
Biogeographic interpretation suggests a Gondwanan origin for the Arecoid Line with several lineages found on more than one fragment of the former supercontinent and primary diversification in these groups possibly due to continental breakup vicariance.
