BACKGROUND AND AIMS Rhododendron (Ericaceae) is a large woody genus in which hybridization is thought to play an important role in evolution and speciation, particularly in the Sino-Himalaya region where many interfertile species often occur sympatrically. Rhododendron agastum, a putative hybrid species, occurs in China, western Yunnan Province, in mixed populations with R. irroratum and R. delavayi. METHODS Material of these taxa from two sites 400 km apart (ZhuJianYuan, ZJY and HuaDianBa… CONTINUE READING
