    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 98:13167-71. 2001
    ..Because the most recent common ancestor of these three families is the ancestor of approximately 75% of dicot families, our results indicate that RNase-based self-incompatibility was the ancestral state in the majority of dicots...

    Proc Natl Acad Sci U S A 103:1359-63. 2006
    ..This study shows in a statistical framework that a particular character transition is irreversible, consistent with Dollo's law...

    ..0-18.4 Myr before present. These results confirm the great age of polymorphism at the S-locus and the utility of loci under balancing selection for deep historical inference...

    Section of Ecology, Behavior, and Evolution, Division of Biological Sciences, University of California San Diego, La Jolla, California 92093 0116, USA
    Evolution 59:2048-55. 2005
    ..The correspondence between ploidy and sex expression is consistent with the hypothesis that polyploidization triggers the evolution of gender dimorphism in this and other Lycium species...

    Evolution 60:1098-103. 2006
    ..Because this study examines only one potential bias, and finds it to be large, conclusions regarding either the frequency of mixed mating or the shape of the distribution of outcrossing rates in nature are premature...
