Dendrosenecio kilimanjari

Dendrosenecio kilimanjari is a giant groundsel found atop Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa. It was known as Senecio kilimanjari, but a recent botanical reclassification split off some species in Senecio, putting it and various other species in the new genus Dendrosenecio. Both genera are in the family Asteraceae; the giant grounsels of the genus Dendrosenecio evolved, about a million years ago, from a Senecio that established itself on Mount Kilimanjaro, with those that survived adapting into Dendrosenecio kilimanjari. This colonised other mountains by some means - the standard distance for wind dispersal of seeds is a few metres - and these isolated populations adapted in ways different from the parent population, creating new species; the names for the giant groundsels have become somewhat confusing: Dendrosenecio kilimanjari E. B. Knox subsp. Cottonii E. B. Knox Dendrosenecio johnstonii B. Nord. Subsp. Cottonii B. Nord. Senecio cottonii Hutch. & G. Taylor Senecio johnstonii Oliv. subsp. Cottonii Mabb.

Extensive and long-going intermarriage blurs the issue. Whites are estimated to make up one-quarter of the population, Indians roughly a quarter, people of Chinese ancestry to form 3%; the percentages of racially mixed people and those of Afro-Malagasy origins vary wildly between estimates, though they are few in number.
