Phylogeny of eastern North American Coreopsis (Asteraceae-Coreopsideae): Insights from nuclear and plastid sequences and comments on character evolution
Author(s): D. J. Crawford, M. E. Mort
Journal: American Journal of Botany
Article Topic(s): Systematics
Research Setting(s): Laboratory
Species Referenced: Coreopsis basalis (Goldenmane tickseed), Coreopsis gladiata (Coastal plain tickseed), Coreopsis integrifolia (Fringeleaf tickseed), Coreopsis lanceolata (Lanceleaf coreopsis), Coreopsis leavenworthii (Common tickseed), Coreopsis linifolia (Texas tickseed), Coreopsis major (Greater tickseed), Coreopsis pubescens (Star tickseed), Coreopsis tinctoria (Plains coreopsis), Coreopsis verticillata (Threadleaf coreopsis),
AbstractEvaluates the systematics of Coreopsis species in eastern North America using molecular phylogenetics. Results are compared with previous studies using morphological characteristics to discuss whether the group is monophyletic.
