We investigated Viburnum phylogeny using separate and combined analyses of DNA sequence data from two chloroplast and three nuclear loci. Separate analyses of nuclear and chloroplast data sets resulted in gene trees that were generally congruent with one another and with trees from two previous analyses. Our gene trees do differ in the position of section Pseudotinus, as well as in species relationships within sections Pseudotinus and Lentago. However, tests for incongruence indicate that… CONTINUE READING
