Taxonomic Revision and Conspectus of Pinus in Vietnam
Vietnam shows one of the greatest conifer diversity in Eurasia, and Pinus is the genus with the highest species richness (8 species). There is a great taxonomic confusion or there are only provisional identifications of Pinus species in the relevant literature. In this study Vietnamese populations of pines with controversial identities have been taxonomically reassessed. All taxa are summarised and geographical distribution on the basis of the author’s field knowledge of Asian pine species is given.
