Abstract Hybridization and introgression are important natural evolutionary processes that can be successfully investigated using molecular markers and open- and controlled-pollinated progeny. In this study, we collected open-pollinated seeds from Cedrus atlantica, Cedrus libani and C. libani × C. atlantica hybrids from three French-plantation forests. We also used pollen from C. libani and Cedrus brevifolia to pollinate C. atlantica trees. The progeny were analyzed using three different types… Expand
Geographical diversity and genetic relationships among Cedrus species estimated by AFLP
TLDR
Surprisingly, C. brevifolia, the endemic taxon from the island of Cyprus that is found in small and fragmented populations, showed one of the highest levels of diversity, suggesting a recent divergence rather than a relictual, declining population. Expand
Characterizing the genetic diversity of Atlas cedar and phylogeny of Mediterranean Cedrus species with a new multiplex of 16 SSR markers
TLDR
A new set of 12 nuclear microsatellite markers on Cedrus atlantica that is combined with four previously developed ones in three multiplexes confirms the potential interest of these nSSR multiplexes for genotyping in Cedrus and reveals a very clear geographical genetic structure within C. atlanica. Expand
Phylogeny and biogeography of Cedrus (Pinaceae) inferred from sequences of seven paternal chloroplast and maternal mitochondrial DNA regions.
TLDR
The results indicate that Cedrus could have an origin in the high latitude area of Eurasia, and its present distribution might result from vicariance of southerly migrated populations during climatic oscillations in the Tertiary and further fragmentation and dispersal of these populations. Expand
Mesure directe des flux de gènes en forêt
Direct measures of gene flow in forest. Gene flow through seeds and pollen are major processes shaping genetic diversity in plants. In this project we studied gene flow in five tree species ofExpand
Genetic diversity and population structure in natural populations of Moroccan Atlas cedar (Cedrus atlantica; Pinaceae) determined with cpSSR markers.
TLDR
AMOVA analysis showed that most of the variation in C. atlantica occurs within populations and confirmed the general tendency of gymnosperms to display lower values of population differentiation than angiosperms and the distance-based clustering method (PCoA and neighbor-joining analysis) and the geographical structure revealed a poor structure among the six populations. Expand
Genetic diversity and structure of natural and managed populations of Cedrus atlantica (Pinaceae) assessed using random amplified polymorphic DNA.
TLDR
The high degree of among-group differentiation recorded here highlights the need for additional conservation measures for some Moroccan populations of C. atlantica. Expand
High genetic diversity and significant population structure in Cedrus brevifolia Henry, a narrow endemic Mediterranean tree from Cyprus
TLDR
The results from both markers showed high diversity, strongly suggesting that the species did not experience severe bottleneck events or extensive genetic drift, and the relatively high genetic differentiation found at plastid markers was comparable to values observed in two widespread congener cedar species. Expand
Genetic consequences of past climate and human impact on eastern Mediterranean Cedrus libani forests. Implications for their conservation
TLDR
It is shown that there is a phylogeographic structure in C. libani, and that forests from Lebanon and Turkey constitute two genetically isolated groups which probably arose from distinct refugia after the last Quaternary glacial cycle. Expand
Short Note: Cross-Species Amplification and Characterization of Pinus Chloroplast Microsatellite Markers in Cedrus deodara Roxb.
TLDR
The transferability of chloroplast microsatellite markers developed for Pinus species to Cedrus deodara can be used for population genetic studies and characterization in C.deodara for which no cpSSR markers have been reported till date. Expand
Assessments of somaclonal variation in micropropagated shoots of Cedrus: consequences of axillary bud breaking
TLDR
The application of various statistical approaches, including cluster-based genetic distance methods and AMOVA, demonstrates that RAPD markers discriminate C. atlantica and C. libani appropriately. Expand

ARE CHLOROPLAST AND MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIATION SPECIES INDEPENDENT IN OAKS?
TLDR
A direct test for the existence of local exchanges must be comparatively recent, that is, contemporaneous with or later than the last postglacial recolonization of oak species, to distinguish between ancient hybridization events and ongoing introgression. Expand
Frequent cytoplasmic exchanges between oak species that are not closely related: Quercus suber and Q. ilex in Morocco
TLDR
In mixed‐species populations, cytoplasmic genomes were frequently shared across species, as indicated by an introgression ratio of 0.63, a new measure of the propensity of species to share locally genetic markers, varying from zero (complete differentiation) to one (no differentiation). Expand
Karyotype analysis reveals interspecific differentiation in the genus Cedrus despite genome size and base composition constancy
TLDR
These investigations provide a systematic characterisation of the Cedrus genus and should contribute towards clarification of the phylogenetic relationships among the four species. Expand

Data from controlled-cross hybrids suggest that mitochondria are maternally inherited and chloroplasts are paternally Inherited in these spruce species. Expand
Construction of an intraspecific integrated linkage map of pepper using molecular markers and doubled-haploid progenies.
TLDR
An examination of segregation data has revealed several genomic regions with aberrant segregation ratios often favouring the agronomic big-fruited parents, particularly in crosses involving the exotic parent CM334, suggesting that these genome regions are subjected to selection during the process of doubled-haploid production.

Evidence of variation in segregation patterns within a Cedrus population.
TLDR
Both segregation distortions and heterogeneity of recombination frequencies indicate the occurrence of a genetic load in this population of French Cedrus atlantica trees. Expand

The present findings add a further genetic component to this succession scheme, suggesting that unidirectional gene flow reinforces succession between the two species. Expand

TLDR
The forest tree speaes generally display very high level of genetic diversity and the possibility to screen highly polymorphic microsatellite regions also in the chloroplast genome, which shows lower mutation rates than the nuclear genome and is usually uniparentally inherited, might increase the knowledge about the biology of these organisms.
