Exploring and conserving a “microcosm”: whole-population genetic characterization within a refugial area of the endemic, relict conifer Picea omorika


The last resort for conservation of rare tree populations in refugial areas under high risk of climate driven extinction may be ex situ conservation and assisted translocation. Although such actions require detailed knowledge about the spatial scale and heterogeneity of the within-population distribution of genetic diversity, it is still unknown whether… (More)
