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 recent
papers on this subject, preferably based on molecular markers, or of any
research groups that address this problem, could you please send one of us
an email?

Thanks a lot in advance
