Morphological, Phylogenetic, Ranunculus, Nepal

In the course of general studies of <em>Ranunculi</em> collected from Nepal, the authors came across some specimens of special interest in having floral anomalies of significance. These specimens were collected in the alpine zone of Nepal. Fischer (1960) had also found a number of species of New Zealand buttercups of the alpine group that showed variations of leaf shape. The results of the study of the Nepal material seemed sufficiently interesting to warrant their publication.
