Subtribe Amsinckiinae, currently containing 13 genera and approximately 287 species, is a species­rich group of the family Boraginaceae. Past studies assessing relationships had a limited sample size and generally weak support. Here we study phylogenetic relationships of Amsinckiinae using a large sample size and considerably more sequence data in order to evaluate the interrelationships of genera and clades within this group. Using high­throughput, genome skimming sequencing of 139 samples of…

Evaluating the Monophyly and Biogeography of Cryptantha (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
A greatly increased sampling of Cryptantha taxa is analyzed using high-throughput, genome skimming data, and the occurrence of a non-monophyletic Cryptantha is confirmed, with three major clades obtained, termed here the Johnstonella/Albidae clades, the Maritimae clade, and a large Cryptantha core clade each strongly supported as monophyletics.
Memoirs of a frequent flier: Phylogenomics reveals 18 long-distance dispersals between North America and South America in the popcorn flowers (Amsinckiinae).
TLDR
Asynchronous divergence times support the hypothesis of long-distance dispersal by birds as the mechanism of AAD in the subtribe and more generally.
Genome skimming provides well resolved plastid and nuclear phylogenies, showing patterns of deep reticulate evolution in the tropical carnivorous plant genus Nepenthes (Caryophyllales)
TLDR
It is shown that genome skimming provides well resolved nuclear and plastid phylogenies that provide valuable insights into the complex evolutionary relationships of Nepenthes.
Transfer of four species of Cryptantha to the genus Johnstonella (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
The transfer of Cryptantha texana to Johnstonella is delayed because of its morphological similarity to other species that clearly nest within Cryptantha s.s.l, and new combinations are made in transferring four of these species from Cryptantha toJohnstonella to maintain monophyly of genera.
Plastome phylogenomics of Cephalotaxus (Cephalotaxaceae) and allied genera
TLDR
The results justify the taxonomic proposal that recognizes Cephalotaxaceae as a monotypic family, and contribute to a clear-cut delineation between Cep Halotaxus and Taxaceae.
Research in Boraginaceae: A new variety of Cryptantha maritima, Cryptantha pondii resurrected, and Johnstonella echinosepala transferred back to Cryptantha
TLDR
A review of the species Cryptantha maritima (Boraginaceae) supports the continued recognition of the three varieties, these differing in corolla size, ovule and nutlet number, and calyx vestiture, and evidence from both morphological and phylogenetic studies supports the transfer of this species from the genus Johnstonella back to the genus Cryptantha.
Plastome phylogenomics, biogeography, and clade diversification of Paris (Melanthiaceae)
TLDR
Findings challenge the theoretical prediction that large genome sizes may limit speciation in Paris and provide important insights for clarifying some of the long-standing taxonomic debates in Paris.
Nomenclatural Changes in Western North American Amsinckiinae (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
Two new genus names are provided here: Amsinckiopsis and Sonnea Greene, both of which are given for plants from Arizona that were found to be phylogenetically nested within P. collinus.
Genome Skimming Reveals Widespread Hybridization in a Neotropical Flowering Plant Radiation
The tropics hold at least an order of magnitude greater plant diversity than the temperate zone, yet the reasons for this difference are still subject to debate. Much of tropical plant diversity is

Cat's Eyes and Popcorn Flowers: Phylogenetic Systematics of the Genus Cryptantha s. l. (Boraginaceae)
TLDR
The hypothesis of repeated, unidirectional dispersal events, from North to South America, is generally supported and the multiple, derived evolution of perenniality, reduction in nutlet number, nutlet heteromorphism, smooth nutlet sculpturing, heterostyly, and cleistogamy are supported.
A Broad Phylogenetic Analysis of Boraginaceae: Implications for the Relationships of Mertensia
TLDR
Strong support is recovered for the monophyly of Mertensia and the placement of the monotypic genus Asperugo as its sister in phylogeny reconstructions of Boraginaceae.
Molecular phylogenetics and morphology support two new genera ( Memoremea and Nihon ) of Boraginaceae s.s.
TLDR
Two new genera are described to accommodate Omphalodes scorpioides from Europe and the Japanese species, and a taxonomic treatment is provided that proposes the lowest number of nomenclature changes, although six new combinations are required.
Inferring Phylogeny and Introgression using RADseq Data: An Example from Flowering Plants (Pedicularis: Orobanchaceae)
TLDR
An important role for geographic isolation in the emergence of species barriers is suggested, by facilitating local adaptation and differentiation in the absence of homogenizing gene flow.
Adelinia and Andersonglossum (Boraginaceae), Two New Genera from New World Species of Cynoglossum
TLDR
A phylogeny has been reconstructed to investigate the evolutionary relationships among the New and Old World species of Cynoglossum and other members of Boraginaceae and resolved that North American species of C. virginianum and C. occidentale are members of a clade distinct from theOld World species, and these North Americanspecies belong to two distinct lineages.
A phylogenetic analysis of morphological and molecular characters of Boraginaceae: evolutionary relationships, taxonomy, and patterns of character evolution
TLDR
Phylogenetic relationships and patterns of character evolution identified in the present study set the stage for future work creating an updated taxonomic system of Boraginaceae.
Familial classification of the Boraginales
TLDR
A consensus classification is proposed here, based on recent molecular phylogenetic studies, morphological characters, and taking nomenclatural stability into consideration, of eleven, morphologically well-defined and clearly monophyletic families, namely the Boraginaceae and Coldeniaceae.
An update of the Angiosperm Phylogeny Group classification for the orders and families of flowering plants: APG IV
TLDR
A revised and updated classification for the families of the flowering plants is provided and the use of bracketing families that could be included optionally in broader circumscriptions with other related families are expanded.
Differences in evolution rates among eudicotyledon species observed by analysis of protein divergence.
TLDR
The C. canephora genome seems to be an appropriate model for paleogenomic studies of asterids, and the proteins that evolved the most slowly were those of V. vinifera, among the species belonging to the asterid clade.
