Repeated cycles of retreat and recolonization during the Quaternary ice ages are thought to have greatly influenced current species distributions and their genetic diversity. It remains unclear how this climatic oscillation has affected the distribution of genetic diversity between populations of wind-pollinated conifers in the Qinghai-Tibetan region. In this study, we investigated the within-species genetic diversity and phylogenetic relationships of Picea likiangensis, a dominant forest… 
Population genetic structure of Juniperus phoenicea (Cupressaceae) in the western Mediterranean Basin: gradient of diversity on a broad geographical scale
TLDR
The results suggest rather local forest economy with J. phoenicea, without seed exchange on large distance, without evidence for isolation by distance was detected in Mantel test on genetic (ΦST) and geographic distances.
Pliocene intraspecific divergence and Plio‐Pleistocene range expansions within Picea likiangensis (Lijiang spruce), a dominant forest tree of the Qinghai‐Tibet Plateau
TLDR
The findings point to the importance of geological and climatic changes during the Pliocene and Pleistocene as causes of intraspecific diversification and range shifts of dominant tree species in the QTP biodiversity hot spot region.
Genetic relationships among some Pinus, Picea and Abies species revealed by RAPD markers
TLDR
On the basis of the results, pine species from different subgenera -Pinus and Strobus are clearly separated, in agreement with contemporary intrageneric classification of the genus Pinus.
Genetic diversity and population structure in Meconopsis quintuplinervia (Papaveraceae)
TLDR
The results exhibit a strong genetic differentiation which is obviously due to genetic drift in the isolated populations of M. quintuplinervia, and might be an efficient way to conserve genetic resources of the medicinal plant, in addition to its effective uses.
Role of Geographical Gaps in the Western Ghats in Shaping Intra- and Interspecific Genetic Diversity
TLDR
Overall, this review suggests that the Palghat gap appears to be a major barrier for a range of taxonomic groups, followed by Shencottah and Goa Gaps to a lesser extent, and patterns are consistent with the depth and width of these gaps.
The fate of Meconopsis species in the Tibeto‐Himalayan region under future climate change
TLDR
It is suggested that past refugia on the Tibeto‐Himalayan region will also be the future climate refugias for the ten Meconopsis species, and these species may potentially persist in multiple future climateRefugia, likely reducing risks from climate change.
Demographic histories of four spruce (Picea) species of the Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau and neighboring areas inferred from multiple nuclear loci.
TLDR
Results suggest that P. purpurea has a complex origin, possibly involving additional species, and that it is a diploid hybrid of P. likiangensis and P. wilsonii, which share the same haplotypes at both chloroplast and mitochondrial markers.
Mountains as Evolutionary Arenas: Patterns, Emerging Approaches, Paradigm Shifts, and Their Implications for Plant Phylogeographic Research in the Tibeto-Himalayan Region
TLDR
A review of the current state of knowledge concerning geological uplift, Quaternary glaciation, and the main phylogeographic patterns (“contraction/recolonization,” “platform refugia/local expansion,’ and “microrefugia”) of seed plant species in the THR is provided.

Genetic variation in the vulnerable and endemic Monkey Puzzle tree, detected using RAPDs
TLDR
Within Andean groups there was evidence of a trend of genetic distance with increasing latitude, and clustering of populations across the Andes, suggesting postglacial migration routes from multiple refugia.
Allozyme variation in natural populations of Picea asperata
TLDR
It is concluded that monitoring appropriate genetic markers may be an effective means of identifying potential genetic changes occurring during forest tree evolution.
Genetic diversity in Mesoamerican populations of mahogany (Swietenia macrophylla), assessed using RAPDs
TLDR
One of the most wide-ranging surveys of molecular variation within a tropical tree species to date offers practical information for the future conservation of mahogany and highlights some factors that may have influenced the partitioning of genetic diversity in this species across Mesoamerica.
Strong genetic differentiation of the East-Himalayan Megacodon stylophorus (Gentianaceae) detected by Inter-Simple Sequence Repeats (ISSR)
TLDR
The observed genetic structure of the populations implies that as many populations as possible should be considered for any in situ and ex situ conservation practice on this species.
Genetic variation at allozyme and RAPD markers in Pinus longaeva (Pinaceae) of the White Mountains, California.
TLDR
Despite the limited and fragmented distribution of bristlecone pine, its level of genetic diversity was comparable to that of other pines, but lower than that reported for eastern populations of Great Basin bristle cone pine.
Phylogeography of the Qinghai‐Tibetan Plateau endemic Juniperus przewalskii (Cupressaceae) inferred from chloroplast DNA sequence variation
TLDR
The contrasting phylogeographic structures of the haplotype‐rich plateau edge area and the almost haplotypes‐uniform plateau platform region indicate that the plateau platform was recolonized by J. przewalskii during the most recent postglacial period, supported by the findings of a nested clade analysis.
Genetic variation in Fitzroya cupressoides (alerce), a threatened South American conifer
TLDR
Assessment of genetic variation using DNA markers within and between populations of Fitzroya cupressoides indicated that there is a significant degree of variation within each population, and did not provide evidence for genetic ‘bottleneck’ effects within the species.
Genetic variation in Costa Rican populations of the tropical timber species Cedrela odorata L., assessed using RAPDs
TLDR
Possible reasons for the high degree of intraspecific genetic variation within this species are discussed and the implications for the conservation and use of its genetic resources are described.

Empirical assessment of allozyme and RAPD variation in Pinus sylvestris (L.) using haploid tissue analysis
TLDR
RAPD analysis provides genetic information similar to that revealed by analysis of allozyme variation, concordant with theoretical results suggesting that analysis of RAPD variation in diploid material can produce unreliable estimates of population-genetic parameters.
