Effects of life history traits on genetic diversity in plant species
Seven two-trait combinations (e.g. breeding system and seed dispersal mechanism) of five life history characteristics were used to analyse interspecific variation in the level and distribution ofExpand
Factors influencing levels of genetic diversity in woody plant species
The plant allozyme literature was reviewed to: (1) compare genetic diversity in long-lived woody species with species representing other life forms, and (2) to investigate whether the levels andExpand
Plant populations are not randomly arranged assemblages of genotypes but are structured in space and time (2, 29, 49, 58, 84, 112). This structure may be manifested among geographically distinctExpand
Response of forest trees to global environmental changes
Abstract Characteristics of tree species may uniquely situate them to withstand environmental changes. Paleoecological evidence indicates that the geographic ranges of tree species have expanded andExpand
Reproductive and Genetic Consequences of Forest Fragmentation: Two Case Studies of Neotropical Canopy Trees
Large areas of continuous tropical forests are rapidly becoming fragmented as a result of human activities, prompting a growing need for information on the reproductive and genetic responses of treeExpand
Relationships Between Life History Characteristics and Electrophoretically Detectable Genetic Variation in Plants
Numerous studies of morphological and physiological traits (reviewed in 3, 57, 95, 132, 135) as well as the more recent studies of enzyme loci (reviewed in 21, 52, 63) have generally shown theExpand
Microsatellite analysis of demographic genetic structure in fragmented populations of the tropical tree Symphonia globulifera
We developed genetic markers for three microsatellite loci in the tropical tree Symphonia globulifera and used them to examine the demographic genetic consequences of forest fragmentation. HighExpand
Isozymes and the Analysis of Genetic Structure in Plant Populations
Ecologists and plant evolutionary biologists have long recognized that plants are not distributed at random within communities but, rather, are clustered in distinct patches. EnvironmentalExpand
