Predicting local adaptation in fragmented plant populations: Implications for restoration genetics

Pickup, Melinda; Field, David L.; Rowell, David M; Young, Andrew

Description

Understanding patterns and correlates of local adaptation in heterogeneous landscapes can provide important information in the selection of appropriate seed sources for restoration. We assessed the extent of local adaptation of fitness components in 12 population pairs of the perennial herb Rutidosis leptorrhynchoides (Asteraceae) and examined whether spatial scale (0.7-600 km), environmental distance, quantitative (QST) and neutral (FST) genetic differentiation, and size of the local and...[Show more]
