Scope note: Género de plantas de la familia BERBERIDACEAE. La uva de Oregón se descubrió en América del Norte y fue clasificada por Pursh como una BERBERIS, aunque Nuttall mantenía que esta planta es lo suficientemente diferente como para asignársele un nuevo género, MAHONIA. Actualmente, los botánicos insisten en la denominación Berberis, aunque los horticultores mantienen el género. De estas plantas se obtiene la BERBERINA.

Scope note: A plant genus in the family BERBERIDACEAE. Oregon Grape was discovered in North America and classified by Pursh as a BERBERIS but Nuttall claimed it is different enough to call it a new genus, MAHONIA. Now botanists insist on Berberis while horticulturists stay with this genus. It is a source of BERBERINE.
