    • A classification for extant ferns 

      Smith, AR; Pryer, KM; Schuettpelz, E; Korall, P; Schneider, H; Wolf, PG (Taxon, 2006-01-01)
      We present a revised classification for extant ferns, with emphasis on ordinal and familial ranks, and a synopsis of included genera. Our classification reflects recently published phylogenetic hypotheses based ...
    • Fern phylogeny inferred from 400 leptosporangiate species and three plastid genes 

      Schuettpelz, E; Pryer, KM (Taxon, 2007-01-01)
      In an effort to obtain a solid and balanced approximation of global fern phylogeny to serve as a tool for addressing large-scale evolutionary questions, we assembled and analyzed the most inclusive molecular dataset for ...
    • Is morphology really at odds with molecules in estimating fern phylogeny? 

      Schneider, H; Smith, AR; Pryer, KM (Systematic Botany, 2009-07-01)
      Using a morphological dataset of 136 vegetative and reproductive characters, we infer the tracheophyte phylogeny with an emphasis on early divergences of ferns (monilophytes). The dataset comprises morphological, anatomical, ...
    • Phylogeny and evolution of ferns (monilophytes) with a focus on the early leptosporangiate divergences. 

      Pryer, Kathleen M; Schuettpelz, Eric; Wolf, Paul G; Schneider, Harald; Smith, Alan R; Cranfill, Raymond (American journal of botany, 2004-10)
      The phylogenetic structure of ferns (= monilophytes) is explored here, with a special focus on the early divergences among leptosporangiate lineages. Despite considerable progress in our understanding of fern relationships, ...
    • 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 ...
