    Description

    Three species of stone pines are native to Russia: Siberian stone pine (Pinus sibirica), dwarf Siberian pine (P. pumila), and Korean pine (Pinus koraiensis). Genetic differentiation by allozyme loci placed P. sibirica in one clade with European stone pine (P. cembra), whereas the Far Eastern species P. pumila and P. koraiensis represent another lineage more closely associated with the Asiatic white pines that have winged seeds: P. armandii, P. parviflora, and P. wallichiana. Molecular data on the large divergence of sibirica-cembra and pumila-koraiensis clades are supported by analysis of needle anatomy. The taxonomic position of the North American stone pine (P. albicaulis) is intermediate between the Asiatic stone pines and the North American white pines P. flexilis, P. monticola, and others.
