The tribe Geonomateae is a widely distributed group of 103 species of Neotropical palms which contains six ecologically important understory or subcanopy genera. Although it has been the focus of many studies, our understanding of the evolutionary history of this group, and in particular of the taxonomically complex genus Geonoma, is far from complete due to a lack of molecular data....

A dedicated target capture approach reveals variable genetic markers across micro- and macro-evolutionary time scales in palms

de La Harpe, Marylaure ; Hess, Jaqueline ; Loiseau, Oriane ; Salamin, Nicolas ; Lexer, Christian ; Paris, Margot

In: Molecular Ecology Resources, 2019, p. -

Understanding the genetics of biological diversification across micro‐ and macro‐ evolutionary time scales is a vibrant field of research for molecular ecologists as rapid advances in sequencing technologies promise to overcome former limitations. In palms, an emblematic, economically and ecologically important plant family with high diversity in the tropics, studies of diversification at...

Molecular ecology studies of species radiations: current research gaps, opportunities and challenges

la Harpe, Marylaure de ; Paris, Margot ; Karger, Dirk N. ; Rolland, Jonathan ; Kessler, Michael ; Salamin, Nicolas ; Lexer, Christian

In: Molecular Ecology, 2017, p. -

Understanding the drivers and limits of species radiations is a crucial goal of evolutionary genetics and molecular ecology, yet research on this topic has been hampered by the notorious difficulty of connecting micro- and macroevolutionary approaches to studying the drivers of diversification. To chart the current research gaps, opportunities and challenges of molecular ecology approaches to...
