Does spatial genetic structure increase with altitude? An answer from Picea abies in Tyrol, Austria

Abstract

Harsh environment at high altitude may affect the mating system of plant species, especially those with wide ecological amplitude. Smaller effective neighbourhood size, less pollen and seed production, higher rate of inbreeding and a shift towards vegetative propagation may be involved. These changes can be reflected in spatial genetic structure (SGS… (More)
