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

Using genetic markers to estimate the pollen dispersal curve
Pollen dispersal is a critical process that shapes genetic diversity in natural populations of plants. Estimating the pollen dispersal curve can provide insight into the evolutionary dynamics ofExpand

Challenges of microsatellite isolation in fungi.
Although they represent powerful genetic markers in many fields of biology, microsatellites have been isolated in few fungal species. The aim of this study was to assess whether obtainingExpand

The chestnut blight fungus world tour: successive introduction events from diverse origins in an invasive plant fungal pathogen
Clonal expansion has been observed in several invasive fungal plant pathogens colonizing new areas, raising the question of the origin of clonal lineages. Using microsatellite markers, we retracedExpand

Gene flow, historical population dynamics and genetic diversity within French Guianan populations of a rainforest tree species, Vouacapoua americana
Both gene flow and historical events influence the genetic diversity of natural populations. One way to understand their respective impact is to analyze population genetic structure at large spatialExpand

Multiple introductions of divergent genetic lineages in an invasive fungal pathogen, Cryphonectria parasitica, in France
The occurrence of multiple introductions may be a crucial factor in the successful establishment of invasive species, but few studies focus on the introduction of fungal pathogens, despite theirExpand

The population biology of fungal invasions
Fungal invasions are increasingly recognized as a significant component of global changes, threatening ecosystem health and damaging food production. Invasive fungi also provide excellent models toExpand

Genetic diversity of the Chestnut blight fungus Cryphonectria parasitica in four French populations assessed by microsatellite markers.
Microsatellites are powerful markers to infer population genetic parameters. Here, 13 microsatellite loci isolated from a genomic and a cDNA library of Cryphonectria parasitica were used toExpand

Isolation and characterization of polymorphic microsatellite loci in Rubus alceifolius Poir. (Rosaceae), an invasive weed in La Réunion island
This study characterized eight microsatellite loci of the invasive weed Rubus alceifolius , and represents the first microsatellite markers published for any Rubus species. They proved to be highlyExpand

Chloroplast diversity in Vouacapoua americana (Caesalpiniaceae), a neotropical forest tree
The chloroplast genome has been widely used to describe genetic diversity in plant species. Its maternal inheritance in numerous angiosperm species and low mutation rate are suitable characters whenExpand
