Genetic diversity in the moss Hennediella heimii in Miers Valley, Southern Victoria Land, Antarctica

Dale, T; Skotnicki, Mary; Adams, Cameron L; Selkirk, Patricia M


The moss Hennediella heimii constitutes a significant proportion of the terrestrial flora of East Antarctica, especially in the McMurdo Dry Valleys region of southern Victoria Land. This is the first investigation of the extent of genetic variation within a population of H. heimii. Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA has been used to study both genetic diversity and dispersal of this moss in Miers Valley, southern Victoria Land. The results showed that genetic variation does occur m H. heimii...[Show more]
