Dodecatheon

Dodecatheon included in the Genus Primula

A research paper in the journal "Brittonia", Volume 59, Issue 1 (January 2007), pp 79-82, entitled "Transfer of Dodecatheon to Primula (Primulaceae)" by Austin Mast and James Reveal, moves the Genus Dodecatheon in to the Genus Primula. The paper renames all species within the Genus Dodecatheon though it is not a straight replacement of the word Dodecatheon with the word Primula.

The abstract of this paper is here. (scroll down)

At present, I do not intend to include Dodecatheons in Primula World until I see that this change becomes commonly accepted.
