Phylogenomics of Fagaceae: evolutionary correlates of a pollination shift.

The oak family (Fagaceae) contains approximatley 730 species, primarily in three genera: two likely insect pollinated (Lithocarpus and Castanopsis) and one wind pollinated (Quercus). We present a densely sampled phylogenomic reconstruction of Fagaceae based on 464 nuclear loci, with a fossil-based time calibration. We also demonstrate how older Sanger data can be combined with NGS data for improved taxon sampling with a Fagaceae supertree containing over 400 taxa. Finally, we discuss the climatic and biogeographic correlates of shifts between wind and insect pollination in Fagaceae.
