Genetic diversity at 10 loci encoding six enzymes was studied in 17 European populations of Sorbus aucuparia L. (the rowan), distributed among five regions, from Finland to the Pyrenees. Levels of genetic diversity were high both at the species level (He=0.229) and within populations (mean He=0.212), whereas levels of differentiation among populations were very low (GST=0.060). These values were comparable to those observed in other woody species with similar ecological traits. Populations from… CONTINUE READING
