BACKGROUND AND AIMS Cypripedium calceolus, although widespread in Eurasia, is rare in many countries in which it occurs. Population genetics studies with nuclear DNA markers on this species have been hampered by its large nuclear genome size. Plastid DNA markers are used here to gain an understanding of variation within and between populations and of biogeographical patterns. METHODS Thirteen length-variable regions (microsatellites and insertions/deletions) were identified in non-coding… CONTINUE READING
