The genetic structure of populations of the out-crossing haplontic yeast species Metschnikowia lochheadii was investigated. The species is associated with floricolous beetles in Central America and Hawaii. The objective was to determine whether sexual reproduction is prevalent and to what extent the geographic distribution of genotypes can be viewed as historical. The genetic markers examined include the mating type (h + or h −) and nine polymorphic DNA loci. The data were used to assess… CONTINUE READING
