Phylogenetic and Historical Biogeographic of Dryopteris and its Diversification in Eastern Asia.

Dryopteris is a widespread genus containing about 400 species, which occurs in tropical, temperate, and boreal regions worldwide. The diversity of this genus is most abundant in eastern Asia; however, the relationships among eastern Asian Dryopteris species remain poorly understood. We sequenced five plastid genes and spacers (atpA, atpB, rbcL,rps4-trnS, and trnL-F), in order to get a better understanding of phylogenetic relationships in Dryopteris, and infer the biogeographic histories of Dryopteris.
