      Species name: Fringed Water-lily (Nymphoides peltata [S.G. Gmel.] Kuntze)
      Overview
    Nymphoides peltata represents the Menyanthaceae, which is a close relative of the Compositae (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nymphoides_peltata). Evolutionary genomic analyses of Nymphoides are useful for elucidating genetic and genomic changes associated with the origin and early diversification of the Compositae. Nymphoides peltata is an aquatic, bottom-rooted perennial native to Eurasia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Platycodon_grandiflorus). The plant is a popular aquatic garden ornamental for outdoor water gardens, but it is also escapes ready and is a troublesome weed in North America and New Zealand. The species is has a gametophytic chromosome number of 27 (http://www.tropicos.org/Project/IPCN), with a genome size of circa 715 Mbp (http://data.kew.org/cvalues/).
