Generic relationships in the Pyrinae (equivalent to subfamily Maloideae) were assessed with six chloroplast regions and five nuclear regions. We also plotted 12 non-molecular characters onto molecular phylogenies. Chloroplast DNA trees are incongruent with those from nuclear regions, as are most nuclear regions with one another. Some of this conflict may be the result of hybridization, which occurs between many genera of Pyrinae in the present and may have occurred in the past, and duplication…

Expanded phylogenetic and dating analyses of the apples and their relatives (Pyreae, Rosaceae).
Phylogeny of Crataegus (Rosaceae) based on 257 nuclear loci and chloroplast genomes: evaluating the impact of hybridization
TLDR
Despite the high heterogeneity of individual gene trees, this work corroborate earlier evidence for the importance of hybridization in the evolution of Crataegus and obtained well-supported phylogenies from plastome sequences and from a minimum of 244 low copy-number nuclear loci.
Phylogeny of Maleae (Rosaceae) Based on Multiple Chloroplast Regions: Implications to Genera Circumscription
TLDR
Molecular phylogeny of 35 generally accepted genera in Maleae is established using 15 chloroplast regions, suggesting that the proposal of four subtribes is reasonable and the four Malus-related genera should better be merged into one genus.
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.
Molecular evolution of Adh and LEAFY and the phylogenetic utility of their introns in Pyrus (Rosaceae)
TLDR
This study represents the first phylogenetic analyses based on LCNGs in Pyrus and reveals putative recombinants that can lead to incorrect phylogenetic inferences, and presents an improved phylogenetic resolution of Pyrus using LFY2int2-N.
Molecular phylogenetics and historical biogeography of Sorbus sensu stricto (Rosaceae).
Phylogeny of Rosa sections Chinenses and Synstylae (Rosaceae) based on chloroplast and nuclear markers.
Global and Fine Scale Molecular Studies of Polyploid Evolution in Crataegus L. (Rosaceae)
TLDR
The findings collectively clarify taxonomy and historical biogeography, provide an explicit reticulation model for polyploid formation, and shed light on evolution of natural populations in woody plants that show heterogeneous ploidy levels and reproductive systems.
Phylogeny and classification of Rosaceae
TLDR
Strong support for monophyly of groups corresponding closely to many previously recognized tribes and subfamilies is found, but no previous classification was entirely supported, and relationships among the strongly supported clades were weakly resolved and/or conflicted between some data sets.

Phylogenetic and phytogeographical relationships in Maloideae (Rosaceae) based on morphological and anatomical characters
TLDR
Parsimony analyses indicate that Eriobotrya and Rhaphiolepis form a well-supported clade that is the sister to the remainder of the Rosaceae subfamily, and Eastern Asia is a centre of diversity from which the number of shared taxa decreases in several directions.
A synopsis of genera in Maloideae (Rosaceae)
TLDR
The traditional division of Maloideae into two tribes is unwarranted and does not reflect relationships of the genera, and the extensive hybridization between genera and subgeneric groups seems to reflect weak overall barriers to hybridization in the subfamily rather than indicate evolutionary relationships.
Systematic and evolutionary implications of rbcL sequence variation in Rosaceae
TLDR
RbcL-based phylogenies suggest that chromosome numbers are more reliable indicators of some generic alliances than the more commonly used fruit types and that the subfamily Maloideae may have descended from spiraeoid ancestors and the pome is derived from follicular or capsular fruit types.
Phylogeny and classification of Rosaceae
TLDR
Strong support for monophyly of groups corresponding closely to many previously recognized tribes and subfamilies is found, but no previous classification was entirely supported, and relationships among the strongly supported clades were weakly resolved and/or conflicted between some data sets.
Phylogeny of Saxifragales (angiosperms, eudicots): analysis of a rapid, ancient radiation.
TLDR
It is shown that estimated branch lengths during the initial diversification of Saxifragales are exceedingly short, and it is estimated that acquiring sufficient sequence data to resolve these relationships would require an extraordinary effort, and a limit to achievable branch support is suggested.
Polyploidy in Crataegus and Mespilus (Rosaceae, Maloideae): evolutionary inferences from flow cytometry of nuclear DNA amounts
TLDR
It is found that some variation in DNA amount per genome copy distinguishes certain taxa, but ploidy-level estimates are at least as clear as the published chromosome counts, especially in the most common diploid-triploids-tetraploid range, and to the single published higher chromosome count, it is added evidence of pentaploids.
Rosaceous Chamaebatiaria-like foliage from the Paleogene of western North America
TLDR
Analysis of the foliar and reproductive characters of the extant species of these genera indicates that the two genera could be closely related and the assignment of Chamaebatia to Rosoideae invalid.
Molecular Reappraisal of Relationships Between Crataegus and Mespilus (Rosaceae, Pyreae)—Two Genera or One?
TLDR
Examination of chloroplast and nuclear data supports the hypothesis of a hybrid origin for Mespilus canescens, with Crataegus brachyacantha or its ancestor as the maternal parent, and maximum parsimony, maximum likelihood, and Bayesian analyses all corroborate the sister group relationship between CrATAegus and M espilus.
S-allele diversity in Sorbus aucuparia and Crataegus monogyna (Rosaceae: Maloideae)
TLDR
Estimates of population-level allele numbers fall within the range observed in the Solanaceae, the only other family with RNase-based incompatibility for which estimates are available, and patterns of selection at the molecular level are investigated by comparing nucleotide diversity at synonymous and nonsynonymous sites.
Origins and evolution of subfam. Maloideae (Rosaceae)
TLDR
It is favoured the idea that several clades of Maloideae originated independently in a highly reticulate system existing shortly after the original allotetraploid cross, which makes sense of the general correspondence of phenetic genera to cladistic genera, remarkably low consistency index, great instability of the cladogram with respect to changing only a few OTU's, and the manifestly great ability of most maloideanGenera to hybridize.
