Phylogenetic relationships of Betula species (Betulaceae) based on nuclear ADH and chloroplast matK sequences.

Abstract

The phylogenetic relationships within the genus Betula (Betulaceae) were investigated using a part of the nuclear ADH gene and DNA sequences of the chloroplast matK gene with parts of its flanking regions. Two well-supported phylogenetic groups could be identified in the chloroplast DNA sequence: one containing the three American species B. lenta, B… (More)
