Genetic diversity was described in 17 cedar populations covering the geographical range of the four species of the genus Cedrus. The study was conducted using amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) on haploid tissues (megagametophytes). Eleven selective AFLP primer pairs generated a total of 107 polymorphic amplification products. Correspondence and genetic distance analyses indicated that Cedrus deodara constitutes a separate gene pool from the Mediterranean cedars. Within Mediterranean… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

High genetic diversity and significant population structure in Cedrus brevifolia Henry, a narrow endemic Mediterranean tree from Cyprus
TLDR
The results from both markers showed high diversity, strongly suggesting that the species did not experience severe bottleneck events or extensive genetic drift, and the relatively high genetic differentiation found at plastid markers was comparable to values observed in two widespread congener cedar species. Expand
Characterizing the genetic diversity of Atlas cedar and phylogeny of Mediterranean Cedrus species with a new multiplex of 16 SSR markers
TLDR
A new set of 12 nuclear microsatellite markers on Cedrus atlantica that is combined with four previously developed ones in three multiplexes confirms the potential interest of these nSSR multiplexes for genotyping in Cedrus and reveals a very clear geographical genetic structure within C. atlanica. Expand
Chloroplast microsatellites reveal genetic diversity and population structure in natural populations of Himalayan Cedar (Cedrus deodara (Roxb.) G. Don) in India
TLDR
Findings indicated existence of genetically distinct and different high diversity and low diversity clusters, which are potential groups of populations that require attention for their conservation and management of Himalayan cedar. Expand
Effect of geographic range discontinuity on species differentiation—East-Mediterranean Abies cilicica: a case study
TLDR
It is argued that significant genetic differentiation discovered among areas of species occurrence is probably due to the effect of long-lasting genetic isolation that started in that region along with the Pleistocene climatic alternation and was further enhanced with human-induced deforestations. Expand
Biogeography and relationships of the Abies taxa from the mediterranean and central Europe regions as revealed by nuclear DNA markers and needle structural characters
TLDR
The simultaneous use of nuclear microsatellite (nSSR) markers and a set of morphological and anatomical needle characteristics would clarify the taxonomy and biogeographical history of the genus Abies and the level of genetic diversity for particular taxa was estimated. Expand
Genetic diversity of ten Moroccan populations of Tetraclinis articulata as revealed by Inter Simple Sequence Repeat (ISSR) markers
TLDR
Compared with other conifers, the current genetic diversity and the pattern of T. articulata population structure indicate an important gene pool requiring efficient conservation strategies. Expand
Isozyme Variation in Four Natural Populations of Cedrus libani A.Rich. in Turkey
TLDR
Genetic variation in 4 natural populations of Cedrus libani A.Rich was determined using isoenzyme analyses and confirmed the hypothesis that variation among the populations is low. Expand
Mating system in natural populations of Taurus cedar (Cedrus libani A.Rich.)
TLDR
A high outcrossing rate, relatively high heterozygosity, and a lack of signifi cant levels of inbreeding in the study populations are important components of the adaptive strategy of this species. Expand
Tracking diversity and evolutionary pathways of Lebanese oak taxa through plastome analyses
TLDR
The results confirm the relevance of the Levant region as an important biogeographical crossroad between continents, and its key role in stimulating diversification and preservation of ancient genepools. Expand
An approach to genetic resources conservation of peripheral isolated plant populations: the case of an island narrow endemic species
TLDR
It is argued that for PIPP, which recorded high genetic diversity and non-uniform distribution of genetic viability (complex genetic patterns), the several small conservation units seem to be the most rationalistic conservation units and forest genetic micro-reserves can be enacted, where on-the-point dynamic in situ conservation activities can be adopted.

Genetic diversity and structure of natural and managed populations of Cedrus atlantica (Pinaceae) assessed using random amplified polymorphic DNA.
TLDR
The high degree of among-group differentiation recorded here highlights the need for additional conservation measures for some Moroccan populations of C. atlantica. Expand
A study of genetic diversity in Populus nigra subsp. betulifolia in the Upper Severn area of the UK using AFLP markers
TLDR
It was possible to identify a small number of individual plants which exhibit maximum diversity and might therefore be suitable for inclusion in a replanting programme designed to maintain at least the existing low level of polymorphism observed within British black poplar. Expand
Comparison of levels of genetic diversity detected with AFLP and microsatellite markers within and among mixed Q. petraea (MATT.) LIEBL. and Q. robur L. stands
TLDR
The aim of this study was to compare genetic diversity within and among Quercus spp. Expand
AFLP analysis of relationships among cassava and other Manihot species
TLDR
The demonstration of unique genetic diversity in the two M. esculenta subspecies and their genetic similarity to the crop supports the hypothesis that these materials may be the ancestors of cassava. Expand
Gene flow among different taxonomic units: evidence from nuclear and cytoplasmic markers in Cedrus plantation forests
TLDR
The Mediterranean Cedrus taxa should be considered as units of a single collective species comprising two regional groups, North Africa and the Middle East, and the use of cpSSRs for monitoring gene flow between taxa in plantation forests is recommended. Expand
Allozyme differentiation and phylogeny of cedar species
TLDR
The isozyme variation patterns of 21 populations belonging to four Cedar species were studied at six loci by horizontal starch and polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and revealed five distinct clusters corresponding to the following taxa. Expand
AFLP Analysis of Gene Pools of a Wild Bean Core Collection
TLDR
Genetic structure between and within gene pools of a core collection of wild Phaseolus vulgaris L. vulgaris using the technique of amplified restriction polymorphism (AFLP) analysis was evaluated, permitting greater insights into the genetic structure of wild beans than had been possible with other methods of analysis. Expand
Karyotype analysis reveals interspecific differentiation in the genus Cedrus despite genome size and base composition constancy
TLDR
These investigations provide a systematic characterisation of the Cedrus genus and should contribute towards clarification of the phylogenetic relationships among the four species. Expand
Impact of founder population, drift and selection on the genetic diversity of a recently translocated tree population
TLDR
Assessment of the spatial and temporal patterns of genetic diversity within a disjunct population of Cedrus atlantica established 140 years ago in south-eastern France suggests recently established tree populations have a higher diversity than older ones, which seems in accordance with experimental surveys. Expand
Is there really more biodiversity in Mediterranean forest ecosystems
TLDR
Gene diversity was significantly higher in the Eastern than in the Western Mediterranean Basin, and was only mildly affected by human impact, compared to expected values in terms of biogeography or levels of endemism. Expand
