Comparative Study of Seed Germination and Genetic Variation of Rare Endemic Rhinanthus osiliensis and Related Widespread Congener R. rumelicus (Orobanchaceae)

Abstract

Genetic diversity is affected by breeding systems, life history traits and the distribution of species. Generally, inbred species with restricted geographic distribution have lower genetic variation compared to common outbreeding plant species. Rhinanthus osiliensis is a narrow endemic growing in calcareous spring fens on the island Saaremaa, Estonia… (More)
