Abstract

Molecular markers developed during the last decade of molecular biology research and successfully utilized for various applications in the field of plant molecular taxonomy, are reviewed. It is always desirable to perform detailed genetic analyses, in addition to morphological studies, to segregate taxonomically different individuals particularly at or below the species level. It enables understanding of the evolutionary processes and reconstruction of phylogenetic relationships in groups of plants that are significant from multifaceted standpoints.
