We explored the circumpolar phylogeographic history of the arctic-alpine Juncus biglumis using amplified fragment length polymorphisms (AFLPs), sequences of cpDNA, relative nuclear DNA content and chromosome numbers. The analyses of the AFLP and cpDNA data gave congruent results and revealed three distinct clades. One of them, represented by a single population from the Taymyr peninsula in northern Siberia, had approximately fourfold larger genome size than the other samples and produced an… CONTINUE READING
