Chloroplast DNA haplotype diversity and postglacial recolonization of Hagenia abyssinica (Bruce) J.F. Gmel. in Ethiopia

  journal={Plant Systematics and Evolution},
We investigated genetic variation of 273 individuals from 25 populations of the monotypic species Hagenia abyssinica (Rosaceae) from the highlands of Ethiopia at three chloroplast microsatellite loci. The objectives were to infer the factors that shaped the genetic structure and to reconstruct the recolonization history of the species. Six haplotypes that were phylogenetically grouped into two lineages were identified. Homology of the three loci to the respective regions of the chloroplast… CONTINUE READING
