Phylogenetic relationships of Scenedesmus and Acutodesmus (Chlorophyta, Chlorophyceae) as inferred from 18S rDNA and ITS-2 sequence comparisons

  title={Phylogenetic relationships of Scenedesmus and Acutodesmus (Chlorophyta, Chlorophyceae) as inferred from 18S rDNA and ITS-2 sequence comparisons},
  author={Eberhard Hegewald and Matthias Wolf},
  journal={Plant Systematics and Evolution},
The complete 18S rDNA and ITS-2 sequences of two strains of Scenedesmus arcuatus were determined and subjected to phylogenetic analyses. Furthermore, ITS-2 sequences of Scenedesmus obtusus, of S. hindakii, and of Acutodesmus regularis were investigated. Phylogenetic analyses indicated that S. hindakii is most closely related to S. raciborskii and/or S. obtusus, embedded in the Scenedesmuscluster. The morphologically similar S. arcuatus and its variety platydiscus branched outside the… CONTINUE READING
