Ben Stone and Evan Carfagno presented a poster on Hyobanche species delimitation this afternoon as part of the Natural and Mathematical Sciences Undergraduate Research Forum.  They used AFLP markers to examine whether Hyobanche rubra and H. glabrata represent one widespread species in Southern Africa or two more narrowly distributed species.  Their results show two distinct species and some geographic correlation for distribution with H. rubra found in the eastern region (summer rainfall) and H. glabrata found in the western region (winter rainfall) of Southern Africa.
