The phylogenetic and systematic position of all species of Acer section Acer from North America, East Asia, and western Eurasia are evaluated using various splits-based networks (distance networks, bipartition networks), ITS motif analysis, and morphology. Molecular analyses are based on 276 ITS clones obtained from 101 specimens collected mainly from natural stands. The large sample size ensures to cover sufficiently inter- and intraspecific ITS variability of this group. Formerly recognised… CONTINUE READING
