ABSTRACT
Recent nrDNA and trnC-trnD sequence data revealed that J.
monticola and J. m. f. compacta are not monophyletic, and this prompted
additional research using Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs). The
SNPs data clearly show that J. monticola f. compacta is not conspecific

raised to the specific level as: Juniperus compacta (Mart.) R. P. Adams,
