Correspondence and Comments Subsequent to Initial Analysis
Correspondence 1 25 May 2004 e-mail from Jeff Greenhouse see Comment 1
Editorial Comments 1 Correspondence 1 indicates that Job Kuijt, in Monograph of Phoradendron (Viscaceae), Systematic Botany Monographs 66:249--251 (2003), includes Phoradendron libocedri as a synonym of Phoradendron juniperinum with no infraspecific taxa, based on morphological similarities and lack of experimental data indicating host specificity, although Delbert Wiens and Frank Hawksworth (The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] Co-Authors), in Aliso 21:35 (2002), had earlier reiterated their taxonomic treatment in The Jepson Manual [Ed. 1] (in which the two are treated as distinct species).
