Julien Massoni is finishing his PhD at Université Paris-Sud. He is studying the evolutionary history of Magnoliidae, a large clade of angiosperms. During the last three years, he gained skills in molecular phylogeny reconstruction, molecular dating, diversification dynamic studies, reconstruction of ancestral traits, and placement of fossil species in extant phylogenies.

James A. Doyle is a paleobotanist and plant evolutionist interested in the origin and early evolution of angiosperms. He received his PhD from Harvard University in 1971 and has held faculty positions at the University of Michigan and the University of California, Davis. His research has ranged from studies of Early Cretaceous fossil pollen and leaves to phylogenetic analyses of living and fossil seed plants and “basal” angiosperms. Much of his current work focuses on integration of early fossil angiosperms into molecular phylogenies of living plants and their geological and evolutionary implications.

Hervé Sauquet is an evolutionary botanist with a primary interest in the use of phylogenetic trees to address questions of morphological evolution and diversification of flowering plants (angiosperms). He obtained his PhD in 2003 at Université Pierre et Marie Curie, where he studied the phylogeny and morphological evolution of Magnoliales. Since then, he has gained interest and experience with molecular dating methods and in particular their calibration with the fossil record. His research at Université Paris-Sud now focuses on floral evolution and diversification of angiosperms in general, and Magnoliidae in particular.
