Nuclear and chloroplast DNA sequence variation was used to infer evolutionary relationships within and among members of Houstonia (Rubiaceae) and other closely related genera in North America. Sequences from the internal transcribed spacer (ITS) of the nrDNA and a cpDNA intron in the trnL gene were used to reconstruct phylogenetic relationships of 30 species of Houstonia and closely related genera. The data suggest that the North American species of Houstonia are not monophyletic, but belong to… CONTINUE READING
