The study of plant speciation on oceanic islands has improved enormously with the help of molecular systematics. Studies have targeted groups present on both the mainland and islands with the aim of understanding plant migration and evolution in isolation. In addition, relatively young volcanic islands give the opportunity to place the evolutionary process in a time frame, by dating molecular trees according to the age of the islands or by relying on the fossil record. Molecular phylogenetics can also be valuable in helping to reconstruct character evolution and understand the syndrome of characters diagnosing oceanic species.
