Despite sampling of up to 25kb of chloroplast DNA sequence from 24 species in Sileneae a number of nodes in the phylogeny remain poorly supported and it is not expected that additional sequence sampling will converge to a reliable phylogenetic hypothesis in these parts of the tree. The main reason for this is probably a combination of rapid radiation and substitution rate heterogeneity. Poor resolution among closely related species are often explained by low levels of variation in chloroplast… CONTINUE READING
