African Dryopteris paper

Our most recent paper, on the phylogenetic relationships and biogeographic history of Dryopteris species in Africa, has been published in the American Journal of Botany! This work started with Emily’s PhD research to build a global phylogeny for this genus, and now we have another piece in the puzzle of woodfern evolution.
