Phylogenetic Relationship of Alexandrium mondatum (Dinophyceae) to Other Alexandrium Species Based On 18S Ribosomal RNA Gene Sequences
Coastal Sciences, Gulf Coast Research Laboratory
The phylogenetic relationship of Alexatidrizan monilatum to other Alexandrium spp. was explored using 18S rDNA sequences. Maximum likelihood phylogenetic analysis of the combined rDNA sequences established that A. monilatum paired with Alexandrium taylori and that the pair was the first of the Alexandrium taxa to diverge, followed by Alexandrium margalefii. All three are members of the Alexandrium subgenus Gessnerium Halim nov. comb. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
