Dear Taxacom colleagues,

Recently, I have started my PhD project on the molecular phylogeny of the
Senecio jacobaea-group (Asteraceae) at the Nationaal Herbarium Nederland,
Universiteit Leiden Branch. In order to unravel the evolutionary history of
Senecio jacobaea and its closest relatives I am planning to sequence the
plastid MatK exon and possibly part of the adjacent spacer regions.
I would like to come in contact with workers on Senecio or related genera
(e.g. Kleinia, Solanecio, Delairea, Packera, Dendrosenecio, Cineraria,
Euryops, Othonna etc.). I am also looking for MatK primers (preferably for
Asteraceae) and Senecio seeds. Does anybody have any suggestions?

Yours sincerely,

Pieter Pelser
