Barrier to gene flow between two ecologically divergent Populus species, P. alba (white poplar) and P. tremula (European aspen): the role of ecology and life history in gene introgression
The renewed interest in the use of hybrid zones for studying speciation calls for the identification and study of hybrid zones across a wide range of organisms, especially in long‐lived taxa forExpand

Genome walking with consensus primers: application to the large single copy region of chloroplast DNA
Conserved chloroplast (cp) DNA primer pairs are useful in plant molecular genetics, evolution and ecology. We have designed 20 conserved cpDNA primer pairs that, in combination with 18 previouslyExpand

Genomic Admixture Analysis in European Populus spp. Reveals Unexpected Patterns of Reproductive Isolation and Mating
Admixture between genetically divergent populations facilitates genomic studies of the mechanisms involved in adaptation, reproductive isolation, and speciation, including mapping of the lociExpand

Clonality and spatial genetic structure in Populus x canescens and its sympatric backcross parent P. alba in a Central European hybrid zone.
Spatial genetic structure (SGS) holds the key to understanding the role of clonality in hybrid persistence, but multilocus SGS in hybrid zones has rarely been quantified. Here, the aim was to fillExpand

A fast and simple genetic survey reveals the spread of poplar hybrids at a natural Elbe river site
It is known that various poplar species and cultivated poplar hybrids have the potential to interbreed and produce fertile offspring. Conservation strategies for the genetic resources of theExpand

Selection against recombinant hybrids maintains reproductive isolation in hybridizing Populus species despite F1 fertility and recurrent gene flow
Natural hybrid zones have proven to be precious tools for understanding the origin and maintenance of reproductive isolation (RI) and therefore species. Most available genomic studies of hybrid zonesExpand

Phylogeography of Populus alba (L.) and Populus tremula (L.) in Central Europe: secondary contact and hybridisation during recolonisation from disconnected refugia
The central aim of this paper is to clarify the picture of postglacial recolonisation and the reconstruction of refugia of Populus alba (L.) and Populus tremula (L.) in the light of hybridisation ofExpand

PCR-BASED CHLOROPLAST DNA ASSAYS FOR THE IDENTIFICATION OF NATIVE POPULUS NIGRA AND INTRODUCED POPLAR HYBRIDS IN EUROPE
Popullrs r~igrl-I L., native to Europe, is under threat from being replaced by, and genetically introgrcssed with, cultivated hybrid poplars. Chloroplast DNA variation between P. r~igra and the mostExpand

Translating conservation genetics into management: Pan-European minimum requirements for dynamic conservation units of forest tree genetic diversity
This paper provides a review of theoretical and practical aspects related to genetic management of forest trees. The implementation of international commitments on forest genetic diversity has beenExpand
