The generic taxonomy of the Nothofagaceae is revised. We present a new phylogenetic analysis of morphological characters and map these characters onto a recently published phylogenetic tree obtained from DNA sequence data. Results of these and previous analyses strongly support the monophyly of four clades of Nothofagaceae that are currently treated as subgenera of Nothofagus . The four clades of Nothofagaceae are robust and well-supported, with deep stem divergences, have evolutionary… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Nothofagus subgenus Brassospora (Nothofagaceae) leaf fossils from New Zealand: a link to Australia and New Guinea?
TLDR
Phylogenetic assessment shows that the leaves of N. palustris are similar to those of Australian Oligocene and Miocene species and may belong to the same clade of Brassospora, a feature that is now only well developed in two New Guinean species. Expand
New species of Cortinarius sect. Austroamericani, sect. nov., from South American Nothofagaceae forests
TLDR
The results reveal high species diversity within this clade, with a total of 12 recognized species, and the phylogenetic analysis based on the nuc rDNA internal transcriber spacer and partial 28S gene sequences shows that this section is related to other taxa from the Southern Hemisphere. Expand
Systematic study of truffles in the genus Ruhlandiella, with the description of two new species from Patagonia
TLDR
The phylogeny of Ruhlandiella and related genera is constructed using a multilocus phylogenetic analysis and the taxonomy is revised to include the single species, R. berolinensis, which was first described by Hennings in 1903. Expand
Pollen morphology of Nothofagus (Nothofagaceae, Fagales) and its phylogenetic significance
TLDR
The reconstruction of character states for the node corresponding to the common ancestor to genus Nothofagus leads us to conclude that the ancestral form of Noth ofagaceae should have had: equatorial diameter < 40 μm, circular outline in polar view, microspines distinguishable in optical section, short colpi thickened inwards, and a thin endexine. Expand
Gibbosporina, a new genus for foliose and tripartite, Palaeotropic Pannariaceae species previously assigned to Psoroma
TLDR
The genus Gibbosporina is the only tripartite genus in the group, with distinct, nodulose, placodioid, mini-fruticose to mini-foliose cephalodia with a high diversity of Nostoc cyanobionts. Expand
The micro- and megafossil record of Nothofagaceae from South America
We compiled the numerous fossil records (486) assigned to Nothofagaceae including pollen grains (from surface sediments and continental and oceanic borehole cores), leaves, woods and reproductiveExpand
Genera of Inocybaceae: New skin for the old ceremony
TLDR
Seven genera are recognized that establish a global overview of phylogenetic relationships in the Inocybaceae, an ectomycorrhizal lineage of Agaricales that associates with at least 23 plant families worldwide and is characterized by the most genera in the family, with South America containing the fewest number of genera. Expand
Four new species of sequestrate Inocybe from Chilean Nothofagaceae forests
TLDR
Results of the phylogenetic analysis resolved the four new species of Inocybe as distinct species-level clades with strong support, suggesting that these fungi have convergently evolved sequestrate forms independently. Expand
Phylogenetic insights into Andean plant diversification
Andean orogeny is considered as one of the most important events for the developmentof current plant diversity in South America. We compare available phylogenetic studies anddivergence time estimatesExpand
Five new species of Corybas (Diurideae, Orchidaceae) endemic to New Zealand and phylogeny of the Nematoceras clade
TLDR
Phylogenetic results showed that, despite the great morphological and ecological diversity of these orchids, genetic divergence between species is low, suggesting recent diversification and evidence for multiple dispersal events from New Zealand to several offshore and sub-Antarctic islands. Expand

Molecular phylogeny ofNothofagus (Nothofagaceae) based on theatpB-rbcL intergenic spacer of the chloroplast DNA
TLDR
The evolution of valve number of cupules, number of nuts per cupule, and habit of leaf-fall (evergreen or deciduous) which are diversified in the genus, were revealed as having occurred several times as the result of convergence. Expand
Phylogenetic Relationships and Taxonomic Status Of the Paleoendemic Fagaceae Of Western North America: Recognition Of A New Genus, Notholithocarpus
TLDR
Results indicate that Notholithocarpus does not possess true ‘flower cupules,’ which define Lithocarpu sensu stricto, but like the oaks, the single flower per cupule is derived through the abortion of lateral flowers within each cupule. Expand
Systematics of Nothofagus (Nothofagaceae) based on rDNA spacer sequences (ITS): taxonomic congruence with morphology and plastid sequences.
  • P. Manos
  • Biology, Medicine
  • American journal of botany
  • 1997
TLDR
Compared to previous thought, the distribution of extant Nothofagus is informative on the area relationships of the Southern Hemisphere, once precise phylogenetic relationships are placed in the context of fossil data. Expand
Using Sequences of rbcL to Study Phylogeny and Biogeography of Nothofagus Species
TLDR
It is tentatively concluded that intercontinental dispersal was possible in the early stages of the evolution of Nothofagus, and the ages of the common ancestors of species in subgenera are derived. Expand
Cophylogeny and biogeography of the fungal parasite Cyttaria and its host Nothofagus, southern beech
TLDR
The hypothesis may support the vicariance hypothesis for the trans-Antarctic distribution between Australasian and South American species of Cyttaria species hosted by subgenus Lophozonia and Nothofagus, and supports the hypothesis of transoceanic long distance dispersal to account for the relatively recent relationship between Australian and New Zealand CyTTaria species. Expand
Evidence of chloroplast capture in South American Nothofagus (subgenus Nothofagus, Nothofagaceae).
TLDR
This work examined geographic patterns of intraspecific and interspecific genetic variation to detect whether incongruences in nuclear or plastid DNA phylogenies occur, and found that N. antarctica was a sister to a clade of evergreen species and N. pumilio likely diverged earlier. Expand
Relationships among felt scale insects (Hemiptera : Coccoidea : Eriococcidae) of southern beech, Nothofagus (Nothofagaceae), with the first descriptions of Australian species of the Nothofagus-feeding genus Madarococcus Hoy
TLDR
The concept of the genus Madarococcus is expanded, a key to the adult females of the 31 species is provided and, for each named species, revised synonymies and any new collection or taxonomic information are provided. Expand
The evolutionary history of Nothofagus (Nothofagaceae)
TLDR
Comparison of potential outgroups (Fagus and Betulaceae) suggests that Fagus is most satisfactory, but clear morphological differences between it and Nothofagus support the placement of the latter in the monogeneric family Noth ofagaceae. Expand
A Generic Classification of the Danthonioideae (Poaceae)1
TLDR
A new generic classification of the largely Southern Hemisphere grass subfamily Danthonioideae is presented, based on an almost completely sampled and well-resolved molecular phylogeny and on a complete morphological data set, which recognizes 17 genera, including five new genera. Expand
TRIGONOBALANUS (FAGACEAE): TAXONOMIC STATUS AND PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS
TLDR
Analysis of cupule morphology in Fagaceae provides an interpretation of evolution in cupules which differs substantially from Forman's interpretation, and interprets trigonobalanoid cupules as indicative of an ancestral type of inflorescence within Fagidae. Expand
