Abstract

To reveal the maternal donor of species in genus Kengyilia, the chloroplast trnL-F sequences of 14 Kengyilia species and several related diploid species were analyzed by using Maximum Parsimony (MP) and Bayesian Inference (BI) methods. The species in Kengyilia were clustered in different clades, which indicated that Agropyron (P) is the likely maternal genome donor to Kengyilia melanthera, K. mutica and K. thoroldiana, while the maternal donor to Kengyilia batalinii, K. nana, K. kokonorica, K. kaschgarica, K. hirsuta, K. alatavica, K. gobicola, K. zhaosuensis, K. rigidula, K. longiglumis and K. grandiglumis was St or Y Roegneria genome.
