Breeding system, genetic diversity and clonal structure in the sub-alpine forb Rutidosis leiolepis F. Muell. (Asteraceae)
Young, Anne; Hill, J.; Murray, Brad; Peakall, Rodney
Genetic markers, controlled pollinations and chromosome analysis were used to examine the breeding system, clonal structure, genetic diversity and cytological complexity of populations of the endangered sub-alpine forb Rutidosis leiolepis. Results show that R. leiolepis: (1) has a strong sporophytic self-incompatibility system; (2) exhibits significant clonality and that the importance of vegetative reproduction increases at higher altitudes; (3) is genetically diverse, but that variation...[Show more]
