Wyethia reticulata is an edaphic endemic in the Sierra Nevada foothills. Its sympatric congener, W. bolanderi, is also restricted to the foothills, but has a north-south range of 275 km, compared to 14 km for W. reticulata. The goals of this study were to determine clonal diversity, population size, genetic variation, and spatial and generic structure for each species from paired populations in El Dorado County, California, using allozyme and RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA… Expand
Molecular markers reveal little genetic differentiation among Aconitum noveboracense and A. columbianum (Ranunculaceae) populations.
TLDR
Describing genetic variation within and among the Aconitum populations in question using isozymes and randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPDs) concur with the recent treatment of A. noveboracense and A. columbianum as a single species. Expand
POPULATION GENETICS OF THE NARROW ENDEMIC HLADNIKIA PASTINACIFOLIA RCHB. (APIACEAE) INDICATES SURVIVAL IN SITU DURING THE PLEISTOCENE
TLDR
The results support the assertion that H. pastinacifolia is an old taxon and the low genetic differentiation between populations and their genetic depauperation indicates survival in situ. Expand
Chloroplast and Total Genomic Diversity in the Endemic Costa Rican Tree Lonchocarpus costaricensis (J. D. Smith) Pittier (Papilionaceae)
TLDR
The habitat degradation of recent times appears not to have yet impacted diversity levels in mature populations of Lonchocarpus costaricensis, but it seems likely that reproductive mechanisms in the species will have been affected by land clearance. Expand
The distribution of genetic variability in Baccharis concinna (Asteraceae), an endemic, dioecious and threatened shrub of rupestrian fields of Brazil
TLDR
Genetic variability distribution in B.concinna populations was weakly related to thealtitudinal gradient, suggesting an intensive gene flow among them or a recent fragmentation of anancient population into many small populations. Expand
RAPD Variation in the Rare and Endangered Leucadendron Elimense (Proteaceae): Implications for Their Conservation.
TLDR
Several mechanisms whereby high levels of genetic variation might persist in small, isolated populations of rare Cape Proteaceae are suggested and it is proposed that such taxa can be protected in a series of very small reserves at relatively low cost and minimal management input. Expand
Genetic Variation in Three Endangered Species of Encholirium (Bromeliaceae) from Cadeia do Espinhaço, Brazil, Setected using RAPD Markers
TLDR
This work aimed to generate basic information for the conservation of three Encholirium species that are endemic to the rocky mountains of Cadeia do Espinhaço, employing population genetic analyses, finding high levels of genetic variability were not expected. Expand
Clonal diversity and subpopulation structure in central European relict populations of Saxifraga paniculataMill. (Saxifragaceae)
TLDR
The high level of genotypic variability is ascribed to the species' mixed mating system, which creates and maintains high levels of genetic diversity within the populations of S. paniculata. Expand
Morphological and genetic variation in the rare daisy Olearia pannosa subsp. cardiophylla (Asteraceae)
TLDR
Morphological analysis, including herbarium samples from South Australia, confirmed the distinction of this subspecies from O. pannosa and validated the characters Cooke (1986) used to distinguish the two subspecies. Expand
Evidence of population bottleneck in Astragalus michauxii (Fabaceae), a narrow endemic of the southeastern United States
TLDR
Although genetic factors can threaten rare species, maintaining habitats through prescribed burning, in concert with other interventions such as population augmentation or (re)introduction, are likely most critical to the long term survival of A. michauxii. Expand
Palaeopolyploidy, spatial structure and conservation genetics of the narrow steppe plant Vella pseudocytisus subsp. paui (Vellinae, Cruciferae).
TLDR
Allozyme data support the hypothesis of an allotetraploid origin of Vella pseudocytisus subsp. Expand

The clonal and population structure of a rare endemic plant, Wyethia reticulata (Asteraceae): allozyme and RAPD analysis
TLDR
It is postulated that large, long‐lived clones dominated genetic relationships within populations but also provided opportunities for gene flow between populations on a longer time scale. Expand
Evolutionary implications of allozyme and RAPD variation in diploid populations of dioecious buffalograss Buchloë dactyloides
TLDR
Large regional differences among the diploid races will facilitate further study of polyploid evolution in buffalograss and multiple correlation Mantel techniques revealed that the correlations were low on an individual by individual basis. Expand
Genetic variation in populations of the endemic Achillea millefolium ssp. Megacephala from the Athabasca sand dunes and the widespread ssp. Lanulosa in western North America.
TLDR
Endemic populations had more alleles per locus, a higher percentage of polymorphic loci, and greater genetic diversity than did populations of the widespread taxon, although within-population gene diversity was higher in the endemic taxon. Expand
Comparative Population Genetic Structure of the Rare Woodland Shrub Daviesia suaveolens and Its Common Congener D. mimosoides
TLDR
It is confirmed that not all types of rarity have the same genetic implications and that D. suaveolens need not be concerned about low population-level variation unless populations become significantly smaller than is currently typical. Expand
GENETIC VARIATION IN ALETES ACAULIS AND ITS RELATIVE, THE NARROW ENDEMIC A. HUMILIS (APIACEAE).
TLDR
The comparable levels of variability in the two species suggest that A. humilis was derived from a source containing a substantial portion of the original A. acaulis genome, because there is no evidence of a genetic bottleneck or appreciable loss of allelic variability. Expand
Genetic variation, breeding system, evolution and conservation of the narrow sand dune endemic Stellaria arenicola and the widespread S. longipes(Caryophyllaceae).
TLDR
The study suggests that partial genetic isolation through a shift in the breeding system, in addition to previously reported strong directional selection, has been important in the sympatric evolution of the endemic S. arenicola and S. longipes. Expand

TLDR
Investigation of the population genetic structure of two locally endemic and two geographically widespread species of Astragalus found that the restricted species do exhibit a moderate level of isozyme variation, comparable to that of widespread A. pectinatus. Expand

The relatively high levels of genetic diversity seen among populations indicates that clonal repro- duction may play an important role in the genetic structuring of these species. Expand
