Nucleotide sequences fromrbcL were used to infer relationships of Lophosoriaceae and Hymenophyllopsidaceae. The phylogenetic positions of these two monotypic fern families have been debated, and neither group had been included in recent molecular systematic studies of ferns. Maximum parsimony analysis of our data supported a sister relationship betweenLophosoria andDicksonia, and also betweenHymenophyllopsis andCyathea. Thus, both newly-examined families appear to be part of a previously… Expand

Tree ferns: monophyletic groups and their relationships as revealed by four protein-coding plastid loci.
TLDR
The results show that Dicksoniaceae and Cyatheaceae, as currently recognised, are not monophyletic and new circumscriptions for these families are needed. Expand
Advances in the studies of lycophytes and monilophytes with reference to systematic arrangement of families distributed in China
TLDR
A tentative systematic arrangement focused on the Chinese lycophytes and monilophytes at the family level is presented and the relationships of all major lineages recovered in the rbcL phylogeny generally agree with those reconstructed in the studies that focused on these clades individually and had more extensive ingroup taxon sampling and/or character sampling. Expand
A molecular phylogeny of scaly tree ferns (Cyatheaceae).
TLDR
This work investigates the phylogenetic relationships of scaly tree ferns based on DNA sequence data from five plastid regions and concludes that indusium shape is homoplastic it does contain useful phylogenetic information that supports some of the larger clades recognised. Expand
Evolutionary relationships of the ancient fern lineage the adder's tongues (Ophioglossaceae) with description of Sahashia gen. nov.

TLDR
Ophioglossaceae are resolved as monophyletic with strong support, and so are all four subfamilies and genera sensu PPG I except Botrypus and Ophiog Lossum and a novel sister relationship between Botrychium and the JHS clade is discovered. Expand
Using a multilocus phylogeny to test morphology-based classifications of Polystichum (Dryopteridaceae), one of the largest fern genera

Phylogeny and classification of the tribe Lepisoreae (Polypodiaceae; pteridophyta) with the description of a new genus, Ellipinema gen. nov., segregated from Lepisorus.
TLDR
All seven currently defined genera except Lepisorus in Lepisoreae are confirmed to be monophyletic and the Lepisoroid ferns group is described as one of the most confusing fern groups in Polypodiaceae largely because of their simple morphology. Expand
A well-sampled phylogenetic analysis of the polystichoid ferns (Dryopteridaceae) suggests a complex biogeographical history involving both boreotropical migrations and recent transoceanic dispersals.
TLDR
The phylogenetic relationships were reconstructed and the ancestral distribution areas of the polystichoid ferns (Cyrtomium, Phanerophlebia, and Polystichum) were inferred, to evaluate the relative impact of vicariance and LDD on the biogeography of this group. Expand
A plastid phylogeny of the fern genus Arachniodes (Dryopteridaceae).
TLDR
The phylogeny of Arachniodes is resolved into 12 major clades, some of which are further divisable into recognizable subclades and groups, with A. mutica from Japan being resolved as the sister to the rest of the genus. Expand
Phylogeny of the fern subfamily Pteridoideae (Pteridaceae; Pteridophyta), with the description of a new genus: Gastoniella.
TLDR
The analyses show that Pteridoideae is monophyletic and the newly defined subfamily is composed of 14 genera including a newly described genus, Gastoniella, which is distinct from Anogramma s.s. in having ultimate segments linear not obviously broadening toward the upper portion. Expand
A revised family-level classification for eupolypod II ferns (Polypodiidae: Polypodiales)

Phylogenetic relationships of dennstaedtioid ferns: evidence from rbcL sequences.
TLDR
Relationships among genera and families of dennstaedtioid ferns are clarified, and phylogenetic analysis of rbcL sequence data suggests relationships of some problematical genera, such as Monachosorum, Calochlaena, and Lonchitis. Expand
rbcL gene sequences provide evidence for the evolutionary lineages of leptosporangiate ferns.
TLDR
To compare competing classifications, DNA sequences of a chloroplast gene were obtained and phylogenetic trees were inferred by the neighbor-joining and the parsimony methods that provided insights concerning major general evolutionary trends in the leptosporangiate ferns. Expand
Phylogenetic relationships of extant ferns based on evidence from morphology and rbcL sequences
TLDR
The first cladistic analysis of extant ferns based on morphological characters is presented, showing the value of using both molecular and morphological data sets in combination as well as separately, and bootstrap support for the leptosporangiate fern clades is much greater using the combined data set than when either the morphological or the molecular data set is analyzed separately.

Species sampling has a major impact on phylogenetic inference.
TLDR
It is empirically demonstrated that 4- to 24-species-trees are highly sensitive to species sampling: the inferences obtained from subsets of 4, 8, 16, or 24 species are not congruent with the whole set of 31 species. Expand

TLDR
The length difference between the complete tree and a subsampled tree was generally small, indicating that subsampling taxa is probably not an important problem for most phylogenetic analyses using up to 20 taxa. Expand
