Pinaceae comprises 11 genera, and represents the largest family of conifers with an extensive wild distribution in the Northern Hemisphere. Intergeneric relationships of Pinaceae have been investigated using many morphological characters and molecular markers, but phylogenetic positions of four genera, including Cathaya, Cedrus, Nothotsuga and Pseudolarix, remain controversial or have not been completely resolved. To completely resolve the intergeneric relationships of Pinaceae, we conducted a… 
Transcriptome-based phylogeny and whole-genome duplication in Theaceae
TLDR
A comprehensive phylogenomic study of Theaceae based on transcriptomes and low-depth whole-genome sequencing of 57 species as well as additional plastome sequence data from previous work suggested that Stewartieae was the first-diverging clade in Theaceae, consistent with previous study using plastomic data.
The Deep Evolutionary Relationships of the Morphologically Heterogeneous Nolinoideae (Asparagaceae) Revealed by Transcriptome Data
TLDR
This work provides a first robust deep relationship of the highly heterogeneous Nolinoideae and paves the way for further investigations of its complex evolution.
Phylotranscriptomics resolves interspecific relationships and indicates multiple historical out-of-North America dispersals through the Bering Land Bridge for the genus Picea (Pinaceae).
TLDR
The phylogenetic analysis, together with molecular dating and ancestral area reconstruction, further supports the North American origin hypothesis for Picea, and indicates that this genus experienced multiple out-of-North America dispersals by the Bering Land Bridge.
Phylogeny and highland adaptation of Chinese species in Allium Section Daghestanica (Amaryllidaceae) revealed by transcriptome sequencing.
TLDR
This study revealed a clear interspecies relationship of Chinese endemics in Allium section Daghestanica, and suggested that the discordance between morphological characters and molecular relationships might result from that the former are more susceptible to convergence compared with the latter.
Discovery of Rhizopogon associated with Larix from northeastern Siberia: Insights into host shift of ectomycorrhizal fungi
TLDR
Evolution does not correspond to host phylogeny as Larix and Pseudotsuga form a monophyletic clade, but ecological traits of Rhizopogon for adapting to disturbed habitats may have driven the host shift to Larix under high-frequency fire ecosystems.
Phylogenomics disentangles the evolutionary history of spruces (Picea) in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau: implications for the design of population genetic studies and species delimitation of conifers.
TLDR
The Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and adjacent areas are considered a species diversity center of Picea, harboring 11 species (including 5 varieties) of this genus, but evolutionary relationships of these species are far from being resolved due to recent radiations, morphological convergence, and frequent interspecific gene flow.
Phylogeny, biogeography and taxonomic re-assessment of Multifurca (Russulaceae, Russulales) using three-locus data
TLDR
Using worldwide samples and three loci, it is demonstrated that Multifurca is split into two highly supported major clades that are here recognized at the subgeneric level: subg.
Phylotranscriptomics reveals the complex evolutionary and biogeographic history of the genus Tsuga with an East Asian-North American disjunct distribution.
TLDR
The results of phylogenetic analysis, molecular dating and ancestral area reconstruction indicate that Tsuga very likely originated from North America in the late Oligocene and dispersed from America to East Asia via the Bering Land Bridge during the middle Miocene, and found complex reticulate evolutionary pattern among the East Asian hemlock species.
Unbiased Subgenome Evolution in Allotetraploid Species of Ephedra and Its Implications for the Evolution of Large Genomes in Gymnosperms
TLDR
The unbiased subgenome evolution implies that the formation of large genomes in gymnosperms could be attributed to even and slow fractionation following polyploidization, and the allopolyploid species of Ephedra might have undergone slow diploidsization.
Does Cathaya argyrophylla, an ancient and threatened Pinaceae species endemic to China, show eco-physiological outliers to its Pinaceae relatives?
TLDR
The polygenetic quantile regression method demonstrated that in the subtropical area of China characterized by abundant rainfall, Cathaya has extra high hydraulic safety, suggesting inefficiency of carbon economy associated with either competition or other life history strategies, which lead to its current endangered status.

Comparative Chloroplast Genomics Reveals the Evolution of Pinaceae Genera and Subfamilies
TLDR
The phylogenetic analyses reveal that Cedrus is clustered with Abies–Keteleeria rather than the basal-most genus of Pinaceae and that Cathaya is closer to Pinus than to Picea or Larix–Pseudotsuga, and views on subfamilial classifications differ from previous studies in terms of the rank of Cedrus and with recognition of more than two subfamilies.
MOLECULAR PHYLOGENY OF PINACEAE AND PINUS
Molecular phylogenetic reconstructions of Pinaceae based on immunological approaches plus nuclear and organellar DNA sequences consistently resolve the generic pairs Larix – Pseudotsuga and Abies –
Revisiting the Plastid Phylogenomics of Pinaceae with Two Complete Plastomes of Pseudolarix and Tsuga
TLDR
From the 65 plastid protein-coding genes common to all Pinaceous genera, the phylogenetic relationship among all Pinassic genera is re-examined and a unique insertion of tandem repeats in accD of T. chinensis is reported.
Inference of higher-order conifer relationships from a multi-locus plastid data set
TLDR
The broad backbone of conifer phylogeny is reconstructed from a survey of 15–17 plastid loci and associated noncoding regions from exemplar conifer species, and the deepest phylogenetic split is inferred to be between Pinaceae and all other conifers (Cupressophyta).
Karyotype evolution in the Pinaceae: implication with molecular phylogeny.
TLDR
Differences in karyotype formulae and asymmetry indices were found among species within the same genera, suggesting that structural changes may have contributed to the diversification of the genus Pinus.
A new phylogeny for the genus Picea from plastid, mitochondrial, and nuclear sequences.
TLDR
The large effective population sizes of spruces, and incomplete lineage sorting during speciation, mean that the interspecific relationships within each of the geographic clades require further studies, especially based on genomic information and population genetic data.
Phylogeny and divergence times in Pinaceae: evidence from three genomes.
TLDR
Intergeneric relationships of Pinaceae using sequences of the chloroplast matK gene, the mitochondrial nad5 gene, and the low-copy nuclear gene 4CL are studied to suggest morphology of both vegetative and reproductive organs has undergone convergent evolution within the pine family.
Dissecting Molecular Evolution in the Highly Diverse Plant Clade Caryophyllales Using Transcriptome Sequencing
TLDR
This approach demonstrates a new approach for functional phylogenomic analysis in nonmodel species that is based on homolog groups in addition to inferred ortholog groups, and finds that both synonymous and nonsynonymous substitution rates in herbaceous lineages are up to three times as fast as in their woody relatives.
Re-evaluating the phylogeny of Sipuncula through transcriptomics.
TLDR
Comparison of transcriptomic analysis of eight species representing all known families within Sipuncula corroborate prior phylogenetic work based on molecular data, resolve outstanding issues with respect to the familial relationships of Aspidosiphonidae, Antillesomatidae and Phascolosomat Families, and highlight the next area of focus for sipunculan systematics.
Phylogenetics of extant and fossil Pinaceae: methods for increasing topological stability1
TLDR
The tree topologies from parsimony and Bayesian inference confirm previous findings that the fossil genus Pseudoaraucaria and a few species of Pityostrobus from the Lower Cretaceous are related to abietoid genera, and that other species of...
