A Numerical Taxonomic Investigation of Stipa Sect. Smirnovia and S. Sect. Subsmirnovia (Poaceae)
Multivariate and univariate analyses were used to investigate the morphological variation among the species of Stipa sections Smirnovia and Subsmirnovia. The MODECLUS procedure using Gower′s similarity coefficient and UPGMA were used to discover how the selected specimens segregated. Subsequently different analyses were applied to qualitative and quantitative characters to determine which were the most discriminating and to determine group placement for each specimen. This study recognizes 18 taxa for section Smirnovia, whereas section Subsmirnovia comprises only one species,
