    • Between two fern genomes. 

      Sessa, Emily B; Banks, Jo Ann; Barker, Michael S; Der, Joshua P; Duffy, Aaron M; Graham, Sean W; Hasebe, Mitsuyasu; ... (19 authors) (Gigascience, 2014)
      Ferns are the only major lineage of vascular plants not represented by a sequenced nuclear genome. This lack of genome sequence information significantly impedes our ability to understand and reconstruct genome evolution ...
    • DNA barcoding exposes a case of mistaken identity in the fern horticultural trade. 

      Pryer, Kathleen M; Schuettpelz, Eric; Huiet, Layne; Grusz, Amanda L; Rothfels, Carl J; Avent, Tony; Schwartz, David; ... (8 authors) (Molecular ecology resources, 2010-11)
      Using cheilanthoid ferns, we provide an example of how DNA barcoding approaches can be useful to the horticultural community for keeping plants in the trade accurately identified. We use plastid rbcL, atpA, and trnG-R sequence ...
    • Overcoming deep roots, fast rates, and short internodes to resolve the ancient rapid radiation of eupolypod II ferns. 

      Rothfels, Carl J; Larsson, Anders; Kuo, Li-Yaung; Korall, Petra; Chiou, Wen-Liang; Pryer, Kathleen M (Systematic biology, 2012-05)
      Backbone relationships within the large eupolypod II clade, which includes nearly a third of extant fern species, have resisted elucidation by both molecular and morphological data. Earlier studies suggest that much of the ...
    • Unique expression of a sporophytic character on the gametophytes of notholaenid ferns (Pteridaceae). 

      Johnson, Anne K; Rothfels, Carl J; Windham, Michael D; Pryer, Kathleen M (American journal of botany, 2012-06)
      PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Not all ferns grow in moist, shaded habitats; some lineages thrive in exposed, seasonally dry environments. Notholaenids are a clade of xeric-adapted ferns commonly characterized by the presence of ...
