kiblogo03Trees from Kunming Institute of Botany

Scientists from Kunming Institute of Botany, China have undertaken investigations into the alpine group, Thamnocalamus, Fargesia and Yushania, sometimes along with Gaoligongshania, Ampelocalamus, Drepanostachyum and Himalayacalamus

Results are summarised in the following 3 trees:

1. From  Guo et al. (2001). ITS seqencing results. Note: A. actinotrichus =Ampelocalamus actinotrichus; F. fractiflexa = Drepanostachyum fractiflexum, T. spathiflorus = Thamnocalamus spathiflorus; F. setosa and other F. species outside the F. spathacea clade = Borinda




























2. Strict consensus tree of the 92 most parsimonious trees resulting from a heuristic search with PAUP 4.0, with gaps treated asa fifth base. Numbers below branches are bootstrap values. (CI 5 0.646, RI 5 0.716).

From Guo et al. (2002). ITS sequencing results. Note: Dr. hookerianum = Himalayacalamus hookerianus; F. fractiflexa = Drepanostachyum fraxiflexum, C. pallens = Chimonocalamus pallens.
