ABSTRACT
Plants of Juniperus communis L. var. communis, J. c. var.
depressa Pursh, J. c. var. jackii Rehdr, J. c. var. saxatilis Pall. were
sampled and SNPs from nrDNA were examined. Based on these data
and previous data, a new variety of J. communis is recognized:
Juniperus communis var. charlottensis R. P. Adams, var. nov. It
occurs in muskeg bogs on Queen Charlotte Island, British Columbia
and in the Ketchikan, Alaska area. Juniperus communis, in North
America, is treated as five varieties: vars. charlottensis, depressa,
jackii, megistocarpa, and saxatilis. Keys and distribution maps are
presented.
KEY WORDS: Juniperus communis, J. communis var. charlottensis,
var. depressa, var. jackii, var. megistocarpa and var. saxatilis,
