Molecular phylogeny of the genera Digitalis L. and Isoplexis (Lindley) Loudon (Veronicaceae) based on ITS- and trnL-F sequences

To investigate phylogenetic and biogeographic relationships all species of Digitalis and Isoplexis and one species of the outgroup genera Antirrhinum and Globularia each were analyzed using nuclear ITS and plastid trnL-F sequences. Phylogenetic trees resulting from separate analyses were highly congruent. Combined analysis revealed two major lineages, which mark an early split in the genus Digitalis. While sections Digitalis, Frutescentes and Globiflorae appear monophyletic, sect. Tubiflorae is… CONTINUE READING
