Phylogeny and evolution of New World milkweed vines (Asclepiadoideae, Gonolobinae): a genome skimming and targeted enrichment approach.

Milkweed subtribe Gonolobinae is diverse (~475 spp.) and has an origin in the Neotropics, but has undergone significant radiation in the seasonally dry grasslands and savannas of subtropical and temperate North America, making it an ideal group for exploring little known milkweeds of the temperate North American flora. A useful classification and an understanding of evolution within the American milkweed vines have been evasive to botanists due to extensive floral variation within the group. To address this problem, we use a genome skimming and targeted enrichment approach to obtain sequence data for hundreds of nuclear loci as well as complete plastomes and nrDNA cistrons to investigate the evolutionary relationships among a broadly-sampled (90 spp.) subtribe.
