A well-resolved species level phylogeny is critically important in studying organismal evolution (e.g., hybridization, polyploidization, adaptive speciation). Lack of appropriate molecular markers that give sufficient resolution to gene trees is one of the major impediments to inferring species level phylogenies. In addition, sampling multiple independent loci is essential to overcome the lineage sorting problem. The availability of nuclear loci has often been a limiting factor in plant species… CONTINUE READING
