Morphological and chromosomal variation of the Dryopteris varia (L.) Kuntze complex (Dryopteridaceae) in Korea

The Dryopteris varia complex is highly variable in morphology, resulting in taxonomic confusion in delimiting taxon boundaries and determining relationships. We have examined the variation in morphology, chromosome number and mode of reproduction of the Korean members of the D. varia complex to clarify their taxonomic identities. Landmark analysis of the… CONTINUE READING
