Molecular phylogenetic study of Hopea and Shorea (Dipterocarpaceae): Evidence from the trnL-trnF and internal transcribed spacer regions.

Yulita, Kusumadewi; Bayer, Randall J; West, Judith G


Hopea and Shorea are economically important timber tree genera distributed throughout South-East Asia. The taxonomic limits of these genera are problematic. Molecular phylogenies of Hopea and Shorea were inferred using two non-coding regions of chloroplast (trnL-trnf) and nuclear ribosomal (internal transcribed spacer) DNA. The inferred phylogenetic relationships between Hopea and Shorea indicate that Shorea is paraphyletic and that Hopea is potentially monophyletic (particularly section...[Show more]
