Abstract:
The role of ex-situ conservation in the species recovery plan for Impatiens gordonii was evaluated. Phylogenetic analyses including seven new sequences and published data for I. gordonii and its congeners showed the East African species I. usambarensis is sister to I. gordonii, with I. waileriana sister to that species pair. Nine herbarium samples and 18 live plants of /. usambarensis, I. waileriana, I. gordonii and I. thomassetii were scoored for 21 morphometric characters.
