Patterns of variation at 13 isozyme loci were examined in 11 populations in three Cistus species strictly endemic to the Canary Islands. Cistus osbaeckiaefolius and C. chinamadensis display low levels of isozyme variation associated with moderate to high interpopulation differentiation, which probably arose through historical bottlenecks in a landscape of habitat fragmentation, grazing, and human influence. By contrast, C. symphytifolius ranks among the subset of narrow endemics with high… CONTINUE READING
