Abstract

This project aims at investigating phylogenetic and phylogeographical relationships in ferns and lycophytes using both DNA sequence data obtained by Sanger sequencing as well as high throughput sequence data. One component is also to investigate how samples from non-model organisms can be used, where we address issues such as quality and amount of DNA, and how different preservation methods and extraction methods affect the outcome.
