Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 13 Jul 2007 e-mail from Dan Luoma, Dept. of Forest Science, Oregon State University see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 is a reference to papers including Cervera et al., 2005, Theor Appl Genet 111:1440-1456, wherein it is concluded, based on phylogenetic analysis and AFLP markers, that Populus trichocarpa and Populus balsamifera "should be treated as separate species."
Correspondence 2 17 Jul 2007 e-mail from John Sawyer (author of Populus for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2]), in response to query from Editor of this Index regarding Correspondence 2 see Comment 2
Editorial Comments 2 Correspondence 2 indicates, based on consideration of Cervera et al., 2005, Theor Appl Genet 111:1440-1456, that for The Jepson Manual [Ed. 2] Populus trichocarpa and Populus balsamifera are to be treated as separate species, so that Populus balsamifera L. subsp. trichocarpa (Torr. & A. Gray ex Hook.) Brayshaw is to be treated as a syn, and Populus balsamifera L. is excluded by recircumscription.
