Banksia and Dryandra have undergone extensive speciation and adaptive radiation, especially in Australia's isolated Southwest Botanical Province. We derive a phylogeny for these groups based on cpDNA sequences and use it to reconstruct their historical biogeography and evolution of leaf traits thought to be adapted to drought and/or nutrient poverty. Slowly evolving regions (trnL intron, trnL/trnF spacer) are used to resolve large-scale relationships; faster evolving regions (rp116 intron, psbA… CONTINUE READING
