Abstract

Studies the morphology and genetics of two rare Florida taxa (L. depressa var. depressa and L. depressa var. floridana) to determine the amount of hybridization with the non-native L. strigocamara (syn. L. camara). Although some hybridization has occurred, wild populations of the native species are still morphologically and genetically distinct.
