Abstract

Investigates the phylogenetic relationships within the genus Leucothoe based on DNA sequence data and morphological characters. The authors found that the genus is polyphyletic and suggest splitting the genus into three genera. Leucothoe axillaris would remain in Leucothoe under the new subscription.
