CHANGING GENETIC STRUCTURE OF A SAVANNA BUR OAK POPULATION
Genetic relatedness among adult bur oaks and among saplings in a remnant savanna in Illinois was compared using data from four microsatellite loci for evidence of changes in genetic structure.
High levels of gene flow in bur oak revealed by paternity analysis using microsatellites
TLDR
This study provides direct evidence for high levels of long-distance pollination in a wind-pollinated species, and contradicts traditional models of wind pollination which suggest that clouds of pollen dissipate from the source to ineffectively low densities over short distances.
Microsatellite analysis of seed dispersal and parentage of saplings in bur oak, Quercus macrocarpa
TLDR
This study demonstrates the utility of microsatellite analysis for studying mating systems, seed dispersal and seedling establishment in natural plant populations.
