Temperate clade phylogeny

Fig. 3. One plausible inferred tree of possible relationships within the temperate bamboos, indicating how they are related to tropical and S American bamboos. One of 100 equally parsimonious trees, from PhD research undertaken by Gráinne Ní Chonghaile in Trinity College, Dublin, and Kew Gardens, 2001, supervised by Trevor Hodkinson and Chris Stapleton, names updated by Chris Stapleton 2015. Note: this tree selected because it matches morphological distinctions well. See Stapleton et al. (2009).
