Rapid Diversification of a Species-Rich Genus of Neotropical Rain Forest Trees
Species richness in the tropics has been attributed to the gradual accumulation of species over a long geological period in stable equatorial climates or, conversely, to speciation in response toExpand

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

Choosing and Using a Plant DNA Barcode
The main aim of DNA barcoding is to establish a shared community resource of DNA sequences that can be used for organismal identification and taxonomic clarification. This approach was successfullyExpand

Molecular phylogenetics and evolution of Orchidinae and selected Habenariinae (Orchidaceae)
Internal transcribed spacer (ITS nuclear rDNA) data have been obtained from 190 terrestrial orchid species, encompassing all genera and the great majority of the widely recognized species ofExpand

Chloroplast microsatellites: new tools for studies in plant ecology and evolution.
The nonrecombinant, uniparentally inherited nature of organelle genomes makes them useful tools for evolutionary studies. However, in plants, detecting useful polymorphism at the population level isExpand

Selecting barcoding loci for plants: evaluation of seven candidate loci with species‐level sampling in three divergent groups of land plants
There has been considerable debate, but little consensus regarding locus choice for DNA barcoding land plants. This is partly attributable to a shortage of comparable data from all proposed candidateExpand

Population genetic structure in European populations of Spiranthes romanzoffiana set in the context of other genetic studies on orchids
Spiranthes romanzoffiana Cham. is restricted in Europe to the British Isles, where it is recognised as a conservation priority species due to frequent extirpation of populations along with noExpand

How much effort is required to isolate nuclear microsatellites from plants?
The attributes of codominance, reproducibility and high resolution have all contributed towards the current popularity of nuclear microsatellites as genetic markers in molecular ecological studies.Expand
