Ferns originated about 360 million years ago is the sister group of seed plants. Despite remarkable progress in our understanding of fern phylogeny, with conflicting molecular evidences and different morphological interpretations, relationships among major fern lineages remain controversial.
With the aim to obtain a robust fern phylogeny, we carried large scale phylogenomic analysis using high-quality transcriptome sequencing data which covered 69 fern species from 38 families and 11 orders. Both coalescent-based and concatenation-based methods were applied to both nucleotides and amino acids sequences in species tree estimation. Among the mainly consistent and strongly supported cladograms, coalescent-based method using nucleotides sequence yielded the most robust cladogram.
Our result confirmed that Equisetales is sister to the rest of ferns, and Dennstaedtiaceae is sister to eupolypods. Moreover, our result strongly supported some relationships new to the current view of fern phylogeny, including that Psilotaceae and Ophioglossaceae form a monophyletic clade which is sister to Marattiaceae; Gleicheniaceae and Hymenophyllaceae form a monophyletic clade which is sister to Dipteridaceae; and that Aspleniaceae is sister to the rest groups in eupolypods II. These results were interpreted with morphological traits, especially sporangia characters, and a new evolutionary route of sporangia annulus in ferns was suggested. This backbone phylogeny in ferns sets a foundation for further studies in biology and evolution in ferns, and therefore in plants.
