Global phylogeny of the Bangiales

There is evidence that the ancestors of this red algal group were around over 1.2 billion years ago. Given this long evolutionary history and a modern day cosmopolitan distribution, the group presents some fascinating scientific challenges.

An international group of specialists, including Museum staff, are using molecular techniques to construct a global phylogeny.
