Recent Taxonomic and Nomenclatural Changes in Cylindropuntia and Grusonia.

Recent studies within the genera Cylindropuntia and Grusonia have prompted taxonomic and nomenclatural changes to several taxa. Whole plastid genome skimming of the diploid Cylindropuntia and Grusonia have revealed phylogenetic relationships at the clade, species, and infraspecific levels. Morphometric analyses of taxa, particularly within the Californica clade of Cylindropuntia, have generally supported these sometimes-unexpected genetic relationships. This presentation will elucidate these changes and provide the genetic, morphological, and/or cytological evidence behind each.
