INVITED REVIEW: Comparative organization of chloroplast, mitochondrial and nuclear diversity in plant populations
Plants offer excellent models to investigate how gene flow shapes the organization of genetic diversity. Their three genomes can have different modes of transmission and will hence experience varyingExpand

A new scenario for the quaternary history of European beech populations: palaeobotanical evidence and genetic consequences.
Here, palaeobotanical and genetic data for common beech (Fagus sylvatica) in Europe are used to evaluate the genetic consequences of long-term survival in refuge areas and postglacial spread. FourExpand

NUCLEAR MICROSATELLITES REVEAL CONTRASTING PATTERNS OF GENETIC STRUCTURE BETWEEN WESTERN AND SOUTHEASTERN EUROPEAN POPULATIONS OF THE COMMON ASH (FRAXINUS EXCELSIOR L.)
Abstract To determine extant patterns of population genetic structure in common ash and gain insight into postglacial recolonization processes, we applied multilocus‐based Bayesian approaches to dataExpand

A set of primers for the amplification of 20 chloroplast microsatellites in Pinaceae
The forest tree speaes generally display very high level of genetic diversity (Miiller-Starck et al. 1992) and therefore an accurate analysis of the entity and distribution of their genetic resourcesExpand

Cross-species transferability and mapping of genomic and cDNA SSRs in pines
Two unigene datasets of Pinus taeda and Pinus pinaster were screened to detect di-, tri- and tetranucleotide repeated motifs using the SSRIT script. A total of 419 simple sequence repeats (SSRs) wereExpand

Chloroplast DNA variation and postglacial recolonization of common ash (Fraxinus excelsior L.) in Europe
We used chloroplast polymerase chain reaction‐restriction‐fragment length polymorphism (PCR‐RFLP) and chloroplast microsatellites to assess the structure of genetic variation and postglacial historyExpand

The distribution of Quercus suber chloroplast haplotypes matches the palaeogeographical history of the western Mediterranean
Combining molecular analyses with geological and palaeontological data may reveal timing and modes for the divergence of lineages within species. The Mediterranean Basin is particularly appropriateExpand

Distribution of genetic diversity in Pinus pinaster Ait. as revealed by chloroplast microsatellites
Abstract Using nine chloroplast simple sequence.repeats (cpSSRs) markers, we evaluated haplotypic variation within and among natural populations of Maritime pine (Pinus pinaster Ait.) in order toExpand

Tree endurance on the Tibetan Plateau marks the world's highest known tree line of the Last Glacial Maximum.
Because of heterogeneous topographies, high-mountain areas could harbor a significant pool of cryptic forest refugia (glacial microrefugia unrecognized by palaeodata), which, as a result of poorExpand

Chloroplast microsatellites reveal population genetic diversity in red pine, Pinus resinosa Ait.
Variation in paternally inherited chloroplast microsatellite (cpSSR) DNA was used to study population genetic structure in red pine (Pinus resinosa Ait.), a species characterized by morphologicalExpand
