Within‐population genetic structure in Quercus robur L. and Quercus petraea (Matt.) Liebl. assessed with isozymes and microsatellites
The spatial distribution of alleles is described in a forest stand of natural origin of 5 ha comprising 355 mature Quercus petraea and Q. robur trees. Each tree was genotyped for six microsatelliteExpand

famoz: a software for parentage analysis using dominant, codominant and uniparentally inherited markers
FAMOZ (an acronym for father/mother) is a software useful in reconstructing parentage for dominant, codominant and uniparentally inherited markers. It is written in C and TclTk languages and isExpand

Potential for evolutionary responses to climate change – evidence from tree populations
Evolutionary responses are required for tree populations to be able to track climate change. Results of 250 years of common garden experiments show that most forest trees have evolved localExpand

Comparison of microsatellites and amplified fragment length polymorphism markers for parentage analysis
This study compares the properties of dominant markers, such as amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs), with those of codominant multiallelic markers, such as microsatellites, inExpand

Chloroplast DNA variation in European white oaks phylogeography and patterns of diversity based on data from over 2600 populations
A consortium of 16 laboratories have studied chloroplast DNA (cpDNA) variation in European white oaks. A common strategy for molecular screening, based on restriction analysis of four PCR-amplifiedExpand

Long-distance gene flow and adaptation of forest trees to rapid climate change
Forest trees are the dominant species in many parts of the world and predicting how they might respond to climate change is a vital global concern. Trees are capable of long-distance gene flow, whichExpand

Species relative abundance and direction of introgression in oaks
Successful hybridisation and subsequent introgression lead to the transfer of genetic material across species boundaries. In this process, species relative abundance can play a significant role. IfExpand

Fine‐scale genetic structure and gene dispersal inferences in 10 Neotropical tree species
The extent of gene dispersal is a fundamental factor of the population and evolutionary dynamics of tropical tree species, but directly monitoring seed and pollen movement is a difficult task.Expand

Hybridization as a mechanism of invasion in oaks
Summary We review here our own research and related work on hybridization between two widespread and largely sympatric European oak species (Quercus petraea and Q. robur). There is a near total lackExpand

Planted forests and biodiversity.
Expansion of planted forests and intensification of their management has raised concerns among forest managers and the public over the implications of these trends for sustainable production andExpand
