Abstract

A polymorphic non-coding region of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) was amplified by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) from herbarium specimens of Pinus brutia and P. halepensis. The samples belong to the historical collection of Michele Tenore. Several discordances and inconsistencies in taxonomic attribution are present for historical specimens of P. brutia. Moreover, there are inaccuracies as to their geographical distribution. In this work, we demonstrate the potential use of molecular methods of amplifying DNA from historical samples to resolve the identification of herbarium specimens.
