Phylogenetics of Bamboo and Citrus in Northeast India.
Studies on population genetics and evolutionary aspects of different species in the Northeast India's Himalayan region are very limited besides taxonomic treatment and botanical inventory of some species. No study has been conducted on phylogeny and evolution of most of the widely distributed species from this region. An evolutionary study of widely distributed wild and domestic genus will provide insights into both historical processes and ongoing evolutionary mechanisms in maintaining the relatively high biodiversity in this region. The rich biodiversity of the region thus encouraged to study the phylogeny and evolution of the two important and widely distributed plant groups viz. Citrus and Bamboo and the population genetics of one of the primitive and true Citrus species viz., C. medica.
