Update (4-Dec-2018): We have the pleasure of being joined by lead author Dr. Diego Morales-Briones at our upcoming meeting!
Our final #PlantChat meeting of 2018 is on Thur December 13th at 7pm (ET).
We will be discussing a recent paper that explores different sources of incongruence in the Neotropical Rosaceae genus Lachemilla (Morales-Briones et al. 2018). This paper uses phylogenomics and multiple species tree and species network analyses to resolve the backbone relationships of the genus and reconstruct its reticulate evolutionary history.

#PlantChat, an Online Biweekly Botany Journal Club! This is an open online discussion group framed around plant systematics, with the aim of circulating through related subjects on evolution, biogeography, ecology, conservation, genomics, and more! When possible, we like to invite authors to discuss their paper. Meetings usually occur every second Thursday at 7pm ET over Google Hangouts. #PlantChat was originally designed to build an accessible online community where botanists from smaller research groups could connect and discuss topics of interest. Members include a mix of students, postdocs, researchers, and professors, united by their passion for plants. If you’re interested in joining, send an email using the contact form or a DM through Twitter.
