Microsatellite polymorphisms were analysed toassess the extent and pattern of geneticdiversity within and between isolatedpopulations of the rare mallee eucalypt, Eucalyptus curtisii. Twelve populations intotal were sampled throughout the 500 km rangeof the species in South-east Queensland.Results from analysis of 5 loci indicated ahigh degree of clonality within many of thesites, with two populations being comprised ofsingle genets. Estimates of radial growth ratessuggest that these clones may… CONTINUE READING
