Panarctic Flora


580249 Salix pulchra Cham.

Geography: European (NE) - Asian (N) - amphi-Beringian.

Notes: Skvortsov (PAF proposal) accepted two races of Salix pulchra: var. pulchra and var. yukonensis (var. anadyrensis). Yurtsev commented that the two varieties co-occur in Chukotka in different site types: var. yukonensis as a small tree in flood-plain alluvial forests, var. pulchra as a shrub in mossy woodlands. Transitions occur where they meet but they are mostly without intermediates.
