Phylogeny of Coreopsideae (Asteraceae) using ITS sequences suggests lability in reproductive characters

Author(s): R. T. Kimball, D. J. Crawford

Year: 2004

Journal: Molecular Phylogenetics and Evolution
Volume: 33
Issue: 1
Pages: 127-139

Article Topic(s): Systematics, Taxonomy
Research Setting(s): Laboratory

Species Referenced: Coreopsis basalis (Goldenmane tickseed), Coreopsis grandiflora (Largeflower tickseed), Coreopsis pubescens (Star tickseed), Coreopsis tripteris (Tall tickseed),


Researches 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.
