Isozyme studies on the Dryopteris "spinulosa" complex, I: The origin of the log fern Dryopteris celsa

Abstract

Studies the isozymes among species in the Dryopteris "spinulosa" complex to elucidate relationships among them. The genus Dryopteris has been difficult to classify due to the high levels of hybridization among species and different ploidy levels represented. This study provides evidence that the ancestry of D. celsa is a cross between D. goldiana and D. ludoviciana.
