Hundreds of nuclear and plastid loci yield novel insights into orchid relationships
PREMISE: The inference of evolutionary relationships in the species- rich family Orchidaceae has hitherto relied heavily on plastid DNA sequences and limited taxon sampling. Previous studies have provided a robust plastid ...
Phylogenetic comparative methods improve the selection of characters for generic delimitations in a hyperdiverse Neotropical orchid clade
Taxonomic delimitations are challenging because of the convergent and variable nature of phenotypic traits. This is evident in species-rich lineages, where the ancestral and derived states and their gains and losses are ...
Molecular clocks and archeogenomics of a late period egyptian date palm leaf reveal introgression from wild relatives and add timestamps on the domestication
The date palm, Phoenix dactylifera, has been a cornerstone of Middle Eastern and North African agriculture for millennia. It was first domesticated in the Persian Gulf, and its evolution appears to have been influenced by ...
