Hierarchical and reticulate evolution in plants, with examples from Sileneae

Extra CEES seminar by Bengt Oxelman, Tuesday 7 October.

The availability of DNA sequences together with conceptual and methodological developments of  phylogenetic reconstruction based on these have greatly affected plant systematics research in recent years. However, phylogenetic trees from different genes of a set of organisms may not be congruent. Possible explanations for these incongruencies are reviewed, and examples are given from Sileneae (Caryophyllaceae).
