Fwd: Do You Have Molecular Estimates of Date of Divergence of Lycopodium and Selaginella?

I'm forwarding this email on to the group for any who might be able
to answer these questions...molecular biology of Selaginella...
I wish I knew more myself!! If we have a lurking Selaginella person
here, I'd love to have you write to me (and John) too.
