Determining the sources and role of intra-specific genetic variation is a classical focus of evolutionary biology (MitchellOlds et al. 2007). Ever since the beginning of population genetic studies in forest trees, the observation of high levels of within-stand phenotypic and, later, molecular diversity has been a commonplace. In these sessile and long-lived organisms, the maintenance of adaptive genetic and phenotypic diversity within populations seems of paramount importance, because the… CONTINUE READING
