Plant Diversity (Volume 45 | Issue 5)

Cover Story: 
East Asia harbours great biodiversity and endemism, renowned as a paramount center of speciation and evolution. In this issue, Chen et al.’s phylogenetic and biogeographic research on Brandisia (Orobanchaceae), a representative undergrowth genus thrives in East Asia, demonstrates that the development of the karst evergreen broadleaved forests in East Asia has played a pivotal role in facilitating the diversification and spread of Brandisia. This study provides the most comprehensive phylogenies of Brandisia to date, contributing to our comprehension of plant diversity and plant evolutionary dynamics in East Asia, and laying the foundation for future work.
