Molecular phylogeny of Philippine Bangia (Dilwyn) Lyngbye (1819) using plastid gene rbcL and nuclear gene nrSSU

Project summary:

The unresolved phylogenetic placement of Bangia, the scarcity of information on Philippine Bangia, and the new specimens of Bangia from a previously unreported Bangia habitat are the impetus for this research. A combination of morphological and molecular analyses will be performed, owing to highly possible cryptic species.
