The family Fagaceae includes nine currently recognized genera and ca. 1000 species, making it one of the largest and most economically important groups within the order Fagales. In addition to wide variation in cupule and fruit morphology, polymorphism in pollination syndrome (wind vs. generalistic insect) also contributes to the uniqueness of the family. Phylogenetic relationships were examined using 179 accessions spanning the taxonomic breadth of the family, emphasizing tropical, subtropical… 
Molecular phylogenetics and cupule evolution in Fagaceae as inferred from nuclear CRABS CLAW sequences
TLDR
This work used CRABS CLAW, a single-copy nuclear gene, to generate over 2,900 base pairs of new sequence data, and combined it with previously collected molecular data to examine morphological evolution in the Fagaceae, and proposed a new hypothesis to explain the evolution of the unusual cupules of Asian Lithocarpus and Chrysolepis.
Plastome data reveal multiple geographic origins of Quercus Group Ilex
TLDR
High plastid divergence in members of Quercus Group Ilex, including haplotypes shared with related, but long isolated oak lineages, point towards multiple geographic origins of this group of oaks and a strong geographic sorting in the focal group and the genus that is entirely decoupled from species boundaries is found.
Phylogenetic Relationships in Fagales Based on DNA Sequences from Three Genomes
TLDR
The results suggest that the combination of different sequences from several species within the same genus representing a terminal taxon has little influence on phylogenetic accuracy and inclusion of taxa with some missing data in combined data sets also does not have a major impact on the topology.
Genome size variation in the Fagaceae and its implications for trees
TLDR
It is proposed that ploidy level and genome size are conserved among trees because they participate in diverse syngameons and this conservatism in genome size and structure should enhance ongoing whole genome studies.
arge-scale phylogenetic analyses reveal fagalean diversification romoted by the interplay of diaspores and environments in the aleogene
TLDR
The evolutionary reconstructions indicate that winged diaspore is synapomorphic, and animal dispersal system is symplesiomorphic in Fagales, and the results suggest that fagalean families are all monophyletic and 29 of the 32 genera are monophylets.
Evolution of rDNA FISH patterns in the Fagaceae
TLDR
Findings suggest rDNA loci restructuring during Castanea evolution, and variability of 18S–25S loci between Quercus and Cyclobalanopsis subgenera.
Molecular systematics of the parasitic genus Conopholis (Orobanchaceae) inferred from plastid and nuclear sequences.
TLDR
These analyses recovered three distinct lineages indicating that there could be a minimum of three species within the genus Conopholis, which is clearly paraphyletic and shows evidence of belonging to at least two separate lineages.
Genomic organization and dynamics of repetitive DNA sequences in representatives of three Fagaceae genera.
TLDR
Several sequences generated in this study proved to be good tools to comparatively study Fagaceae genome organization and were isolated and characterized from Quercus rotundifolia Lam.
Patterns of molecular and morphological differentiation in Fagus (Fagaceae): phylogenetic implications.
TLDR
Both molecular and morphologically based phylogenies suggest that Eurasian species of Fagus subgenus Fagus are basal to the North American Fagus grandifolia, and the East Asian F. hayatae is suggested to be basal toThe rest of the genus.

Phylogeny, biogeography, and processes of molecular differentiation in Quercus subgenus Quercus (Fagaceae).
TLDR
The biogeographic hypothesis that all major oak lineages evolved locally at middle latitudes within the general distribution of their fossil ancestors was fully supported and a New World origin for the widespread white oaks of the Northern Hemisphere was suggested.
PHYLOGENETIC ANALYSIS OF TRAIT EVOLUTION AND SPECIES DIVERSITY VARIATION AMONG ANGIOSPERM FAMILIES
TLDR
A molecular phylogeny of the angiosperm families is used to reanalyse correlations between S and family‐level traits and use reconstructions of trait evolution to interpret the results and confirm that pollination mode and growth form are correlated with S.
Phylogenetic analyses of "higher" Hamamelididae based on plastid sequence data.
TLDR
The basal position of Nothofagus within the matK tree is consistent with the fossil record of "higher" hamamelids in which Noth ofagus pollen appears earlier than microfossils with affinities to other modern " Higher Hamamelididae.
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.
Phylogeny of the eudicots : a nearly complete familial analysis based on rbcL gene sequences
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of 589 plastid rbcL gene sequences representing nearly all eudicot families was performed, and bootstrap re-sampling was used to assess support for clades.
Phylogenetics of flowering plants based on combined analysis of plastid atpB and rbcL gene sequences.
TLDR
A phylogenetic analysis of flowering plants based on a second plastid gene, atpB, analyzed separately and in combination with rbcL sequences for 357 taxa demonstrates that phylogenetics analysis of large matrices is feasible.
Phylogenetics of the Hamamelidae and Their Allies: Parsimony Analyses of Nucleotide Sequences of the Plastid Gene rbcL
TLDR
A parsimony analysis using nucleotide sequences of the plastid gene rbcL from 134 species found that Leitneriaceae are clearly a member of Sapindales.
The Historical Biogeography of Fagaceae: Tracking the Tertiary History of Temperate and Subtropical Forests of the Northern Hemisphere
TLDR
Two phylogenetic analyses on genera with intercontinentally disjunct distributions suggested an Asian origin for the genus Fagus with bidirectional migration to Europe and North America, consistent with a paraphyletic assemblage of Asian species and intercontinental exchange via the Bering Land Bridge (BLB).
Earliest megafossil evidence of Fagaceae: phylogenetic and biogeographic implications
Fossil evidence of Fagaceae from the Paleocene/Eocene boundary of western Tennessee is described and discussed. These fossils include a newly discovered pistillate inflorescence and dispersed fruits
Three divergent rDNA clusters predate the species divergence in Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl. and Quercus robur L.
TLDR
It is proposed that past hybridization events, combined with nucleolar dominance, were the evolutionary processes underlying the contemporary rDNA variability in Q. petraea and Q. robur.
