Abstract

Performs phylogenetic reconstructions of the Andropogon virginicus complex. While the interrelationships of the taxa were found to be largely concordant with previous studies, this study suggest a different evolutionary relationships for the subspecific taxa of A. virginicus and A. glomeratus.
