Systematics of the Carex aquatilis and C. lenticularis lineages: Geographically and ecologically divergent sister clades of Carex section Phacocystis (Cyperaceae).


Carex aquatilis is a highly diverse and geographically widespread member of one of the largest genera of flowering plants, Carex, and is ideally suited for the study of the role of hybridization and niche partitioning in ecological speciation. Phylogenetic analyses of nuclear ITS and ETS 1f and chloroplast psbA-trnH DNA sequences support the monophyly of a… (More)
