The Ward Line-Mekong-Salween Divide (MSD), a classic geographical barrier, is considered the main driver for population differentiation of species in the Himalaya-Hengduan Mountains region. To identify the role of geological factors in shaping the population history of subnival plant species, we investigated the phylogeography of Marmoritis complanatum based on plastid and nuclear ribosomal DNA. The phylogeographical differentiation of M. complanatum was identified between two geographical… CONTINUE READING
