The genus Leontodon L. (Asteraceae) comprises approximately 50 species with a natural distribution area covering North America, Europe, northern Africa, and western Asia. Two of these species are endemic to the Azores Archipelago: Leontodon filii and Leontodon rigens. Although both species were targeted with several taxonomic revisions, so far no studies into their genetic diversity have been carried out. In this research, the population genetic structure and diversity of both taxa were… CONTINUE READING
