Abstract
This study conducted to investigate the complete sequences of plastid TRN L-F gene, which were determined for five species of Cephalaria
Caprifoliaceae in Iraq to infer phylogenetic relationships. Dipsacus laciniatus used as out groups. Cluster analysis using PhyDE-1 and mega6
yielded Maximum Likelihood trees and UPGMA with high supported (bootstrapping) clade. Both trees showed
C. dichaetophore and C.
setosa
forming the two most basal lineage in dendrogram. The other Cephalaria species divided into two clade .The first clade occupied by C.
syriaca
alone, while the last clade gathered C. stapfii and C. paphlagonica. Monophylly of each clade is well supported. Relationships among
Cephalaria species clear based on molecular data in Iraq.
