Abstract

Juniperus communis from Morocco was analyzed by DNA sequence data from nrDNA plus four cp DNA regions (4315 bp) and found to be in a clade with other J. communis from Europe. The sub-alpine, prostrate J. communis plants of Morocco, each only contained a single SNP and a one bp indel (deletion) in the trnSG sequence data for a total of 2 MEs (mutation events). The Moroccan prostrate J. communis appear to be a variant of J. communis of Europe and central Asia and not part of the var. hemispherica group.
