Genetic comparison between Victorian and Tasmanian populations of Prasophyllum correctum D.L. Jones (Orchidaceae) suggests separate species

Orthia, Lindy; Garrick, Ryan C; James, Elizabeth A


Genetic variation within and between Tasmanian and Victorian populations of the Gaping Leek Orchid Prasophyllum correctum (Orchidaceae) was investigated using the Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) method. The degree of fixed genetic differences between the two populations was substantial, suggesting that each population constitutes a different species. The Tasmanian population contained very little genetic variation, indicating that asexual reproduction or self-fertilisation may be the...[Show more]
