I come here because a doubt about Redundant Haplotypes and his repercussions.
I have been doing my thesis for the grade of Biologist about the Evolutionary Significant Units, this are populations of organism that were genetically isolated and have a diferent genetic variability. To make a delimitation of ESUs we indentificate reciprocal monophyly on a genetic tree, in this case whit COI and some of this ESUs have redundant haplotypes with some other locations.
¿ This redundant haplotypes make this reciprocal monophyly no viable?¿ This redundant haplotypes indicate a genetic relation?
I have this dudes because i read, that is very difficult to have the same two haplotypes frommutations or another mechanisms, and that make this ones good to make filognenetic reconstructions. i not have literature about redundant haplotypes.
I'm not a native speaker, i hope my doubt was cleary explain.
