Jeff Doyle and I are preparing a manuscript on phylogenetic incongruence in
plants, to be included as a chapter in the upcoming revision of Molecular
Systematics of Plants (Chapman and Hall, D. Soltis, P. Soltis and J. Doyle,
eds.).  In this chapter we are reviewing the various biological causes of
incongruence between data sets, such as lineage sorting, hybridization, gene
recombination, etc.  We are also including a table of examples from the
literature and wish to make this table as complete as possible.  Our
intention is to provide a convenient pointer to empirical studies that
demonstrate phylogenetic incongruence in plants, and in the process
summarize available information on its underlying causes.  We would be
grateful if you could help us make this table as complete and therefore as
useful as possible by sending any and all examples that you think should be
included (from your lab or others) to Jonathan Wendel at jfw at
Thank you very much, Jonathan and Jeff.
