Scholarcy highlights

  • We investigated the phylogenetic relationships among Citrus and its relatives, including 29 genotypes belonging to Citrus, Poncirus, Fortunella, Microcitrus, Eremocitrus, Atalantia and Severinia using AFLP analysis
  • A strong affiliation exists between C. halimii and Fortunella and the results did not support C. halimii as the fourth basic species
  • Further evidence was provided that P. polyandra should not be the hybrid between trifoliate orange and Citrus genotypes and it deserves species status
  • C. ichangesis is a distinct species very different from other Citrus genotypes, and the results showed it is improper to classify it into subgenus Metacitrus
  • It is not applicable for whole genus Citrus
