The altitudinal distribution, morphology, phenology and allozyme polymorphism at 12 loci were studied in diploid and tetraploid populations of Lotus growing at over 1800 m in the French Alps to clarify relationships between these cytotypes. In general, diploids occurred at higher elevation than tetraploids, although some sites at intermediate elevation contained both cytotypes, diploids predominating in the upper part and tetraploids in the lower part of the contact area. Evidence for an… CONTINUE READING
