We used allozyme analysis to examine family structure, the spatial patterning of related individuals, in two populations of whitebark pine (Pinus albicaulis), a subalpine conifer that commonly displays a multistem form. The individual stems within clumps are genetically distinct individuals, having arisen from separate seeds. Individuals within a clump are genetically more similar than individuals in different clumps, but individuals in neighboring clumps do not appear to be more similar than… CONTINUE READING
