Breeding system, genetic diversity and clonal structure in the sub-alpine forb Rutidosis leiolepis F. Muell. (Asteraceae)
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]
