Extensive long-distance pollen dispersal in a fragmented landscape maintains genetic diversity in white spruce.


Conifers are among the most genetically diverse plants but show the lowest levels of genetic differentiation, even among geographically distant populations. High gene flow among populations may be one of the most important factors in maintaining these genetic patterns. Here, we provide empirical evidence for extensive pollen-mediated gene dispersal between… (More)
