Journal: Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution
Article Topic(s): Systematics, Taxonomy
Research Setting(s): Laboratory
AbstractResearches the phylogeny of the genus Coreopsis to describe relationships among 19 genera. The article concludes that characteristics of the flowers and fruit change more readily than more conservative characteristics of vegetative and photosynthetic traits.
