Table 4 Analysis of all species in Data Set II. Inter-specific K2P distances and per cent species resolution of different loci using downloaded sequences for Dendrobium species as well as sequences of 36 species generated during the study

From: The loci recommended as universal barcodes for plants on the basis of floristic studies may not work with congeneric species as exemplified by DNA barcoding of Dendrobium species
