The morphology and development are described for Siberian stone pine (Pinus sibiricaDu Tour) growing at the timberline in the Western Sayan Mountains. Throughout ontogeny, these plants have a short stem trailing in an approximately horizontal direction. Maximal longevity and viability are characteristic of basal branches, which are able to root and produce(More)
The Siberian stone pine (Pinus sibirica Du Tour) is one of the main forest-forming coniferous species of the boreal ecosystems of Western Siberia. We used the isozyme method to analyze 11 ecotypes representing the latitudinal and longitudinal profiles within the species range, including samples from the geographic boundaries of the distribution. The genetic(More)
The chemical composition of essential oil samples from needles of six species of five-needle pines (Pinus pumila, Pinus sibirica, Pinus parviflora, Pinus armandii, Pinus koraiensis, and Pinus cembra) and one natural interspecific hybrid Pinus sibirica × Pinus pumila has been studied by the chromato-mass spectrometry method. Essential oils have been prepared(More)
Based on the analysis of the variability of 25 allozyme loci, genetic variation within and differentiation between populations of Siberian Stone Pine growing at the trailing-edge range margin in the southern taiga up to the forest-steppe transition zone in Western Siberia have been estimated. At the current stage, climate change and anthropogenic impact(More)
A statistical analysis of interannual variation in a set of vegetative and generative characters over 13 years has been performed to characterize the growth and seed production dynamics of the Siberian stone pine (Pinus sibirica Du Tour) in the southeast of the forest zone in western Siberia. The results have shown that the range of fluctuations in most of(More)
A comparative sequence analysis of the LEA (Late Embryogenesis Abundant (LEA)-like gene) intron fragment was performed in Pinus sibirica and P. pumila differing in geographic origin. It was demonstrated that in P. sibirica this fragment was represented by two types of PCR products, 224 and 202 bp in size. Similarly, in accessions of P. pumila, two PCR(More)
Mutational witches’ broom clones show a growth redistribution compared with normal clones. The main factor affecting the variations in mutant clone morphology is the strength of the mutation. Mutational witches’ broom is a fragment of the tree crown with abnormally dense branching and slower shoot growth, compared with those of a normal crown. Thousands of(More)
Variability of nuclear microsatellite loci was examined in Siberian dwarf pine. Six microsatellite loci (RPS2, RPS6, RPS12, RPS124, RPS127, Pc18) demonstrated different polymorphism levels in ten populations of Siberian dwarf pine. The average number of alleles per locus was 4.88, the average observed heterozygosity was 0.465, and the average expected(More)
