Systematic studies in the genus Sonneratia L.f. (Lythraceae) from Kerala
Two species of the genus Sonneratia L.f., mostly from coastal zones of Kerala, were studied by a multidisciplinary approach. The overall results showed that morphological, anatomical palynological phytochemical and molecular characteristics of the plant were essential in determining the generic and specific status. The ribulose bisphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase (rbcL) and Maturase kinase (matK) of the chloroplast DNA gene of two taxa of the genus Sonneratia were sequenced and compared with other mangrove species in Kerala. The aims of this study are to clarify phylogenetic relationships of the Sonneratia within the true mangrove species in Kerala.
