Taxonomic and nomenclatural notes on Juncus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

New combinations and other nomenclatural notes on the Juncaceae (Juncus sections Iridifolii, Steirochloa and Juncotypus) are proposed within the framework of the preparation of the “Flora of the World” monograph of the family. New combinations are proposed in Juncus prismatocarpus, J. arcticus, J. balticus and J. effusus. On the basis of the new evaluation of Pacific North American plants examined by H. L. Lint in an unpublished thesis, two names are elevated to the species rank (J. hesperius and J. exiguus), and a new species is described (J. laccatus), all related to J. effusus.
