Financial support was provided by the Swedish Natural Science Research Council. I thank Lena Kjällgren, who critically read an early draft of this paper, and Sören Källgren for showing me the chemotaxonomic method for distinguishing between Betula pendula and B. pubescens. I am also indepted to an anonymous referee for helpful comments.References
