Using sequence data from seven nuclear loci in 385 isolates of the haploid, plant parasitic, ascomycete fungus, Sclerotinia, divergence times of populations and of species were distinguished. The evolutionary history of haplotypes on both population and species scales was reconstructed using a combination of parsimony, maximum likelihood and coalescent methods, implemented in a specific order. Analysis of site compatibility revealed recombination blocks from which alternative (marginal… CONTINUE READING
