SNP dataset used in the paper Binks et al: Genomic data and morphological re-assessment reveals synonymy and hybridisation among Seringia taxa (Lasiopetaleae, Malvaceae) in remote north-western Australia
Conservation of rare or threatened species requires a range of information, including a sound taxonomic foundation, to ensure appropriate management. However, rare species are often known from a limited number of specimens and that can hinder taxonomic understanding. Seringia exastia and S. katatona are two conservation-listed taxa that were poorly known in the remote Kimberley region of northern Western Australia. Recent surveys discovered additional populations of both species but also revealed extensive morphological variation that obscured the boundary between the two species and a third, more widespread species, S. nephrosperma. We applied genomic data (>5000 SNP loci) to investigate species boundaries and hybridisation within this group, as reported in Binks RM, Wilkins CF, Markey AS, Lyons MN and Byrne M (2020): Genomic data and morphological re-assessment reveals synonymy and hybridisation among Seringia taxa (Lasiopetaleae, Malvaceae) in remote north-western Australia. Taxon (in press). Here, we provide the 'entire' SNP dataset. Data is presented as a basic genotype table, where 0=homozygote reference allele, 1= heterozygote and 2=homozygote SNP allele.
