Outlier detection and environmental association analysis are common methods to search for loci or genomic regions exhibiting signals of adaptation to environmental factors. However, a validation of outlier loci and corresponding allele distribution models through functional molecular biology or transplant/common garden experiments is rarely carried out.(More)
Genetic differentiation of scattered populations at neutral loci is characterized by genetic drift counteracted by the remaining gene flow. Populations of Pinus cembra in the Carpathian Mountains are isolated and restricted to island-like stands at high-elevation mountain ranges. In contrast, paleobotanical data suggest an extended early Holocene(More)
Deschampsia littoralis is an endemic tetraploid Poaceae occurring on the shores of pre-Alpine lakes. It is closely related to the diploid and widespread D. cespitosa. Several D. littoralis populations from Lake Constance are vegetatively propagating through pseudoviviparous spikelets. These latter populations were formerly described as a separate species,(More)
