    • Horizontal transfer of an adaptive chimeric photoreceptor from bryophytes to ferns. 

      Li, F; Villarreal, JC; Kelly, S; Rothfels, CJ; Melkonian, M; Frangedakis, E; Ruhsam, M; ... (10 authors) (Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2014-05)
      Ferns are well known for their shade-dwelling habits. Their ability to thrive under low-light conditions has been linked to the evolution of a novel chimeric photoreceptor--neochrome--that fuses red-sensing phytochrome and ...
    • The evolutionary history of ferns inferred from 25 low-copy nuclear genes. 

      Rothfels, CJ; Li, F; Sigel, EM; Huiet, L; Larsson, A; Burge, DO; Ruhsam, M; ... (10 authors) (Am J Bot, 2015-07)
      UNLABELLED: • PREMISE OF THE STUDY: Understanding fern (monilophyte) phylogeny and its evolutionary timescale is critical for broad investigations of the evolution of land plants, and for providing the point of comparison ...
    • Transcriptome-mining for single-copy nuclear markers in ferns. 

      Rothfels, CJ; Larsson, A; Li, F; Sigel, EM; Huiet, L; Burge, DO; Ruhsam, M; ... (10 authors) (PloS one, 2013-01)
      BACKGROUND:Molecular phylogenetic investigations have revolutionized our understanding of the evolutionary history of ferns-the second-most species-rich major group of vascular plants, and the sister clade to seed plants. ...
