In the fossil record, Ailanthus (Simaroubaceae) is easily recognized on the basis of winged fruits (samaroid mericarps with a centrally placed seed) and leaves with distinct basal glands and is well represented in the Northern Hemisphere Tertiary. We review worldwide Ailanthus records from the literature and from observations of paleobotanical collections, make suggestions for nomenclature, highlight youngest and oldest stratigraphic occurrences, and infer the geographic origin of the genus… Expand
Fossil fruits of Ailanthus confucii from the Upper Miocene of Wenshan, Yunnan Province, southwestern China
Fossil fruits of Ailanthus are reported from the Upper Miocene Xiaolongtan Formation, Wenshan County, southeastern Yunnan, China. These fruits are elongated and elliptic, 23-47 mm long, and 6-13 mmExpand
THE LATE EOCENE FLORA OF KUČLÍN NEAR BÍLINA IN NORTH BOHEMIA REVISITED
A detailed survey of the Late Eocene flora of the diatomite of Kučlín, the Trupelník Hill in North Bohemia, České středohoří Mountains, is given based on the morphological study of most of the so farExpand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Spathelioideae (Rutaceae)
TLDR
The results of this thesis show that Spathelioideae are a monophyletic sister clade to the Rutaceae family, a group of seven small Sapindalean genera with remarkable morphological diversity. Expand
Oligocene Ailanthus from northwestern Qaidam Basin, northern Tibetan Plateau, China and its implications
As the largest inland basin in the northeastern Tibetan Plateau, Qaidam Basin has traditionally been thought of as the key region to study the Cenozoic climatic changes in the plateau; however, theExpand
Placing Biebersteiniaceae, a herbaceous clade of Sapindales, in a temporal and geographic context
TLDR
Strict and relaxed molecular clocks constrained with fossils of Biebersteinia and up to eight other Sapindales suggest that the Biebersteinian crown group diversified in the Oligocene and Miocene, while the stem lineage dates back to the Late Paleocene. Expand
Phylogeny and evolutionary history of Sapindaceae and Dodonaea
TLDR
The dry and temperate adapted genera of Sapindaceae are relatively recent radiations in the Australian flora, and are most likely to be in response to increased aridity and seasonality from the late Miocene14 Mya to Recent. Expand
The identity of Ailanthus guangxiensis (Simaroubaceae) and lectotypification of A. integrifolia Lamarck
TLDR
The genus Ailanthus Desfontaines of the family Simaroubaceae comprises 5–10 species distributed in South and Southeast Asia as well as northern Australia, and A. guangxiensis is always considered as an endemic species of Guangxi. Expand
Age and historical biogeography of the pantropically distributed Spathelioideae (Rutaceae, Sapindales)
TLDR
Molecular dating and biogeographical analyses of the subfamily Spathelioideae, the earliest branching clade, are presented to interpret the temporal and spatial origins of this group, ascertaining possible vicariant patterns and dispersal routes and inferring diversification rates through time.

The Eocene flora of Tatabánya “marl-mine” (N Hungary)
The middle Eocene (Lutetian) fossil plant assemblage from Tatabánya (N Hungary) comprises plant remains preserved mostly as impressions. Remains of angiosperms are represented by Lauraceae (Expand

Dipteronia (Sapindaceae) from the Tertiary of North America and implications for the phytogeographic history of the Aceroideae.
TLDR
The fossil record of Dipteronia, the sister genus of Acer, is reviewed based on diagnostic winged fruits from the Tertiary of western North America, and it is suggested that the tricarpellate condition may be plesiomorphic for dipteronia and perhaps Aceroideae. Expand
Chaneya, a New Genus of Winged Fruit from the Tertiary of North America and Eastern Asia
TLDR
A new genus is recognized on the basis of wind‐dispersed fruits from the Eocene of western North America and Miocene of eastern Asia, which have similarities to the extant Picrasma of the Simaroubaceae and are suggestive of possible affinities. Expand
Fruits and leaves of Ailanthus Desf. from the Tertiary of Hungary
TLDR
A detailed study of size ranges and morphology suggests that fossil fruits from Magyaregregy are identical to a single fruit known from Erdoýbenye and also with the type specimens of A. confucii Unger, but differ from those recorded from the Tard Clay Formation. Expand
The nonmarine mollusks of the Late Oligocene–Early Miocene Cabbage Patch fauna of western Montana. II. Terrestrial gastropod families other than Pupillidae (Pulmonata: Stylommatophora)
TLDR
The remaining terrestrial gastropod fauna of the late Oligocene–early Miocene Cabbage Patch beds of western Montana is composed of nine new species, all from extant genera now occurring in the western United States, which represent first occurrences of the respective genus in North America. Expand

TLDR
The strict consensus cladogram indicates that Harpullia is monophyletic (five synapomorphies) and does not support the existing sub generic classification and it is advisable to refrain from any subgeneric classification. Expand

Simaroubaceae, an artificial construct: evidence from rbcL sequence variation
TLDR
Phylogenetic analyses of rbcL sequence data of representatives of all subfamilies indicate that Simaroubaceae sensu lato is polyphyletic, and support for the affinities suggested here is also evident in nonmolecular data sources: wood anatomy, pericarp structure, pollen, and phytochemistry. Expand
Aspects of the fossil record and phylogeny of the family Rutaceae ( Zanthoxyleae, Toddalioideae )
TLDR
A phylogenetic scheme demonstrates the postulated historical relationships of Evodia, Zanthoxylum, Fagara, Rutaspermum, Acronychia, Toddalia, Fagaropsis, and Phellodendron. Expand
Chemogeographical evolution of quassinoids in simaroubaceae
TLDR
The presence of canthinones and β-carbolines suggests the derivation of the Simaroubaceae from protorutaceous stock, and the structural analysis of the most numerous and widespread derivatives of the quassin skeleton itself confirms this finding. Expand
