Molecular phylogeny and systematics of the banana family (Musaceae) inferred from multiple nuclear and chloroplast DNA fragments, with a special reference to the genus Musa. Molec. Phylogenet. Evol. 57:1-10. Note: this study analyzed 31 species of Musa (except M. chunii) representing five sections: Australimusa, Callimusa, Ingentimusa, Musa, and Rhodochlamys; this study showed all sections were non-monophyletic; all accessions of sects. Musa and Rhodoclamys grouped in a well-supported, but polytomic clade in all analysis; it proposed that members of this clade "should be used as genetic resources for banana"
