PHYLOGENETIC RELATIONSHIPS IN PERIPLOCOIDEAE (APOCYNACEAE S.L.) AND INSIGHTS INTO THE ORIGIN OF POLLINIA1
Abstract Phylogenetic relationships within Periplocoideae (Apocynaceae s.l.) were investigated using sequence data from nuclear ribosomal DNA and two plastid regions: trnD-trnT and trnT-trnF. WeExpand
