Fagus grandifolia var. mexicana(Fagaceae) is a Mexican endemic tree, currently threatened with extinction. In order to assess the level and structure of genetic variation in four remaining populations, leaf samples were analysed using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and cpDNA PCR-RFLP markers. A sample of the more widespread congener, F. grandifoliavar. grandifolia from the USA was also analysed for comparison. Thirty-three polymorphic RAPD bands were produced using 18 10-mer primers… CONTINUE READING
