>Hi There!
>We are interested in the history of the relationships between
>Salicaceae-feeding insects and their host plants.  We have completed
>a phylogeny of a group of leaf beetles that feed on those plants, and
>we would like to compare our tree with existing information about the
>evolutionary relationships among their hosts.  We would love to know
>more about the phylogeny of the Salicaceae.  If anyone knows of any

>or of any research groups that address this problem, could you please
>send one of us an email?
>Thanks a lot in advance
