The value of trichome characters for species and subspecies delimitation in perennial Californian Monardella (Lamiaceae).
THE Genus Monardella represents a complex of closely related annual and perennial species of western North America. As part of a revision of the genus for the upcoming Second Edition of the Jepson Manual: Vascular Plants of California, variation in trichome type and abundance is investigated in several perennial species using scanning electron microscopy. Specifically, boundries within and between the M. villosa - M. viridis - M. saxicola - M. hypoleuca complex and the M. odoratissima - M. glauca - M. linoides complex are investigated. In addition, detailed trichome variation in the Transverse Range, involving M. australis and M. linoides, is discussed.
