Phylogeny of Plantagineae (Plantaginaceae, Lamiales).

Plantagineae (Plantaginaceae, Lamiales) consist of well-known, worldwide distributed plantains (Plantago), small aquatic Littorella and Andean páramo shrubs Aragoa. This assemblage is unusual in many ways. First, it is a clear example of evolutionary reduction. Second, Plantago exhibits amazingly high diversification rates. Third, the worldwide distribution of plantains raises numerous questions related to vicariance and dispersal. In addition, there is a striking contrast between morphological disparity of these three genera. Frequent hybridization in Aragoa is also an important aspect of this genus evolution. Here we present the most complete draft phylogeny of the group and discuss its evolutionary, morphological and biogeographical implications.
