Molecular Systematics: 1997–1999

  • Kenneth J. Sytsma
  • William J. Hahn
Part of the Progress in Botany book series (BOTANY, volume 62)


During the period of our last review of plant molecular systematics (in Progress in Botany, Volume 58; Sytsma and Hahn 1996), which covered 1994–1995, we indicated a number of areas that should emerge as important issues in the field of molecular systematics:
  1. 1.

    The analysis of DNA data

  2. 2.

    The search for alternative genes or DNA regions

  3. 3.

    Co-evolutionary studies using molecules to track the evolution of the different organisms involved

  4. 4.

    The interfacing of developmental genetics and phylogenetic systematics to understand morphological evolution

  5. 5.

    Adaptive radiations
