Abstract:
Plantago schrenkii (dwarf plantain) from the Russian Arctic is frequently segregated at species level from P. maritima (sea plantain). Using simultaneous morphometric and molecular analyses, I came to the conclusion that P. schrenkii is just an ecological form of sea plantain and should not be recognized at any taxonomical level.
