Abstract

Morpho-anatomical variation and their phylogenetic implications in native and exotic species of Pinus L. growing in the Indian Himalayas.

Abstract

Comprehensive and detailed anatomy of needles in ten species ofPinus using four morphological traits and nine anatomical traits was carried out. The data can be used as a tool for identification and classification of Pinus upto genus and species level. We also found that similarity and differences in leaf anatomical traits supported the molecular phylogeny of genus Pinus conducted by several researchers.
