Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 13 Jun 2007 e-mail from Richard Moe see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that most of the specimens in UC/JEPS previously filed as Mentha arvensis L. were annotated as Mentha canadensis L. by Arthur O. Tucker [author of Mentha for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]] in 2005 and are currently filed under that name. Also cited in Correspondence 1 were: Tucker, A. O., & H. L. Chambers. 2002. Mentha canadensis L. (Lamiaceae): a relict amphidiploid from the lower tertiary. Taxon 51: 703-718, and Tucker, A. O., H. L. Chambers, & R. F. C. Naczi. In press. Mentha: an overview of its classification and relationships. Pp. xx-xx in Mints: the genus Mentha, ed. [Because 1 specimen in UC/JEPS (JEPS24657) was annotated as Mentha arvensis L. by Tucker in 2005, it is appropriate to retain a Current Status of Jepson Flora Project-1 for this name at this time.]
