Gerschwitz-Eidt, M.A. & Kadereit, J.W. 2019. Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS), ITS and cpDNA phylogenies reveal the existence of a distinct Pyrenean/Cantabrian lineage in the European high mountain genus Homogyne (Asteraceae) and imply dual westward migration of the genus. – Alpine Botany 129: 21-31. https://doi.org/10.1007/s00035-018-0212-7
