  • Molecular phylogenetic analyses of 93 new and 198 non-redundant GenBank rbcL sequences of the family Desmidiaceae (Zygnematophyceae, Streptophyta) established 22 mostly highly supported clades, in addition to four non-supported lineages and eight single-taxon branches within the family. Nine novel clades and single-taxon branches were identified, suggesting that current taxon sampling has not reached saturation in the family. The highly polyphyletic nature of most desmid genera corroborated in… CONTINUE READING
