Rhodiola L. (Crassulaceae) is a mid-sized plant genus consisting of about 70 species, with most species distributed on the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) and the adjacent areas, and several species in north-east Asia, Europe, and North America. This study explored the origin and diversification history of Rhodiola and tested the biogeographic relationships(More)
DNA barcoding, the identification of species using one or a few short standardized DNA sequences, is an important complement to traditional taxonomy. However, there are particular challenges for barcoding plants, especially for species with complex evolutionary histories. We herein evaluated the utility of five candidate sequences - rbcL, matK, trnH-psbA,(More)
The evolution and current distribution of the Sino-Tibetan flora have been greatly affected by historical geological events, such as the uplift of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP), and Quaternary climatic oscillations. Rhodiola kirilowii, a perennial herb with its distribution ranging from the southeastern QTP and the Hengduan Mountains (HM) to adjacent(More)
