The spatial genetic structures of three French natural beech stands were analysed using polymorphic enzyme loci. Two methods were used: F-statistics and spatial autocorrelation statistics. Within these stands where self-fertilization rate is 0, a low heterozygote deficit was observed which may be due to a moderate level of mating between relatives. However, no increase of this deficit was observed from one generation to the next. The spatial genetic structuring was low. Within one open stand… CONTINUE READING
