Mount Semeru hiking track is a world tourism destination and inhabited by three species of Anaphalis. The aims of this research is to get the information of the effectiveness of trnL (UAA) intron sequence for analyzing genetic variability of the genus Anaphalis populations along Mount Semeru hiking track. The leaf for DNA extraction was collected from several locations along the track. This research contribute to the information that trnL (UAA) intron sequences have less power to analyses the genetic variation of the genus Anaphalis populations along Mount Semeru hiking track.
