The phylogenetic utility of low-copy nuclear genes in Campanuloideae (Campanulaceae) with special focus on the evolution of NW Alpine Campanula endemics.

The Campanuloideae comprise approximately 50 traditionally circumscribed genera and 1050 species. Although cosmopolitan, about 96% of taxa occur in the Old World, especially Eurasia and the Mediterranean basin. The majority of traditional genera are polypheletic, including Campanula and Wahlenbergia. We will show the utility of recently developed low-copy markers in resolving low-level relationships within the Campanuloideae, especially in Campanula. We present a phylogeny that includes a small radiation of NW Alpine endemic taxa and compare resolution obtained using chloroplast genes alone.
