Microsatellite analysis of seed dispersal and parentage of saplings in bur oak, Quercus macrocarpa
Microsatellite analysis was used to examine parentage and spatial distributions of 62 adult bur oaks Quercus macrocarpa, and 100 saplings in a single stand. Using genotypes scored by PCR products atExpand

High levels of gene flow in bur oak revealed by paternity analysis using microsatellites
Microsatellite analysis was used to characterize pollen dispersal in a stand of 62 adult bur oaks (Quercus macrocarpa) in northern Illinois. Using PCR amplification of four dinucleotideExpand

CHANGING GENETIC STRUCTURE OF A SAVANNA BUR OAK POPULATION
Genetic relatedness among adult bur oaks and among saplings in a remnant savanna in Illinois was compared using data from four microsatellite loci for evidence of changes in genetic structure.Expand
