It has been suggested that many plants now found in the arctic originated from ancestors that occurred at high altitudes in the southern mountains of the Northern Hemisphere during the Tertiary. However, this hypothesis has rarely been tested using a molecular phylogenetic approach. Here, we present a fossil-calibrated molecular phylogeny of Lagotis, an arctic-alpine genus with the greatest diversity in the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau (QTP) and Central Asian mountains, based on five chloroplast… CONTINUE READING
