A DNA barcode for land plants
DNA barcoding involves sequencing a standard region of DNA as a tool for species identification. However, there has been no agreement on which region(s) should be used for barcoding land plants. ToExpand

DNA barcoding the floras of biodiversity hotspots
DNA barcoding is a technique in which species identification is performed by using DNA sequences from a small fragment of the genome, with the aim of contributing to a wide range of ecological andExpand

Recent origin and rapid speciation of Neotropical orchids in the world's richest plant biodiversity hotspot
Summary The Andean mountains of South America are the most species‐rich biodiversity hotspot worldwide with c. 15% of the world's plant species, in only 1% of the world's land surface. Orchids are aExpand

TESTING THE LINK BETWEEN POPULATION GENETIC DIFFERENTIATION AND CLADE DIVERSIFICATION IN COSTA RICAN ORCHIDS
Species population genetics could be an important factor explaining variation in clade species richness. Here, we use newly generated amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) data to testExpand

A comparative analysis of island floras challenges taxonomy‐based biogeographical models of speciation
Speciation on islands, and particularly the divergence of species in situ, has long been debated. Here, we present one of the first, complete assessments of the geographic modes of speciation for theExpand
