A multi-platform package for the analysis of intra- and interspecific trait evolution

Gaboriau, Théo ; Mendes, Fábio K. ; Joly, Simon ; Silvestro, Daniele ; Salamin, Nicolas

In: Methods in Ecology and Evolution, 2020, p. -

Evolutionary forces affect the distribution of phenotypes both within and among species. Yet, at the macro‐evolutionary scale, the evolution of intraspecific variance is rarely considered. Here, we present an r and a BEAST 2 implementation that extends the JIVE (Joint inter‐ and Intraspecific Variance Evolution) model aimed at the analysis of continuous trait evolution at both inter‐...

Genomic footprints of repeated evolution of CAM photosynthesis in a Neotropical species radiation

De La Harpe, Marylaure ; Paris, Margot ; Hess, Jaqueline ; Barfuss, Michael Harald Johannes ; Serrano‐Serrano, Martha Liliana ; Ghatak, Arindam ; Chaturvedi, Palak ; Weckwerth, Wolfram ; Till, Walter ; Salamin, Nicolas ; Wai, Ching Man ; Ming, Ray ; Lexer, Christian

The adaptive radiation of Bromeliaceae (pineapple family) is one of the most diverse among Neotropical flowering plants. Diversification in this group was facilitated by shifts in several adaptive traits or “key innovations” including the transition from C3 to CAM photosynthesis associated with xeric (heat/drought) adaptation. We used phylogenomic approaches, complemented by differential...

Systematics of Vriesea (Bromeliaceae): phylogenetic relationships based on nuclear gene and partial plastome sequences

Machado, Talita Mota ; Loiseau, Oriane ; Paris, Margot ; Weigand, Anna ; Versieux, Leonardo M ; Stehmann, João Renato ; Lexer, Christian ; Salamin, Nicolas

In: Botanical Journal of the Linnean Society, 2020, vol. 192, no. 4, p. 656–674

Vriesea is the second largest genus in Tillandsioideae, the most diverse subfamily of Bromeliaceae. Although recent studies focusing on Tillandsioideae have improved the systematics of Vriesea, no consensus has been reached regarding the circumscription of the genus. Here, we present a phylogenetic analysis of core Tillandsioideae using the nuclear gene phyC and plastid data obtained from...

Targeted Capture of Hundreds of Nuclear Genes Unravels Phylogenetic Relationships of the Diverse Neotropical Palm Tribe Geonomateae

Loiseau, Oriane ; Olivares, Ingrid ; Paris, Margot ; Harpe, Marylaure de La ; Weigand, Anna ; Koubínová, Darina ; Rolland, Jonathan ; Bacon, Christine D. ; Balslev, Henrik ; Borchsenius, Finn ; Cano, Angela ; Couvreur, Thomas L. P. ; Delnatte, César ; Fardin, Frédérique ; Gayot, Marc ; Mejía, Fabian ; Mota-Machado, Talita ; Perret, Mathieu ; Roncal, Julissa ; Sanin, Maria José ; Stauffer, Fred ; Lexer, Christian ; Kessler, Michael ; Salamin, Nicolas

The tribe Geonomateae is a widely distributed group of 103 species of Neotropical palms which contains six ecologically important understory or subcanopy genera. Although it has been the focus of many studies, our understanding of the evolutionary history of this group, and in particular of the taxonomically complex genus Geonoma, is far from complete due to a lack of molecular data....

A dedicated target capture approach reveals variable genetic markers across micro- and macro-evolutionary time scales in palms

de La Harpe, Marylaure ; Hess, Jaqueline ; Loiseau, Oriane ; Salamin, Nicolas ; Lexer, Christian ; Paris, Margot

In: Molecular Ecology Resources, 2019, p. -

Understanding the genetics of biological diversification across micro‐ and macro‐ evolutionary time scales is a vibrant field of research for molecular ecologists as rapid advances in sequencing technologies promise to overcome former limitations. In palms, an emblematic, economically and ecologically important plant family with high diversity in the tropics, studies of diversification at...
