Hybrid clans between Whitebeam and Rowan
Whitebeam Sorbus aria ( as well as the closely related Hill Whitebeam Sorbus collina in the Franconian Alb resp. Tauber Whitebeam Sorbus dubronensis in the Tauber region ) are able to generate hybrids with the Rowan Sorbus aucuparia if they occur together. In several regions such hybrids have developed to stabilized and hereditary-stable hybrid clans, with different appearance in different regions although they have the same parents. In their region they form smaller or bigger populations, which botanists today are treating as closely related species.
In Germany a cumulation of such hybrid clans can be observed in parts of Franconia together with adjacent regions of Bavaria around Regensburg, of Baden-Württemberg in the Tauber region, and of Thuringe. But also in in other countries e.g. France, the British Islands, Scandinavia and Eastern European Countries there are hybrid clans.
Attributes as the different forms of the parents' leaves, the pubescense of the bottom side of Whitebeam's leaves which Rowan doesn't have, the size and color of the fruits, the figure of the tree, and more attributes of the parents are intermediate in any way at the hybrid clans, but more or less different at each of them. The hybrid clans of which I have already taken photos are presented by showing the different forms of their leaves.

Not only in the region of Hersbruck, but also further north in Franconia near Weismain, and even in Rheinhessen (Rheinland-Pfalz) north of Alzey there are rather similar regional populations which have come into being hybridogenously from Whitebeam and Rowan.
