High variability of chloroplast DNA in three Mediterranean evergreen oaks indicates complex evolutionary history

  title={High variability of chloroplast DNA in three Mediterranean evergreen oaks indicates complex evolutionary history},
  author={Pedro Jim{\'e}nez and Unai L{\'o}pez de Heredia and Carmen Collada and Zaida Lorenzo and Luis Gil},
Chloroplast DNA variation was studied in three evergreen Quercus species (Q. suber L., Q. ilex L. and Q. coccifera L.) from the Western Mediterranean Basin using PCR-RFLP. We studied five primer pair/enzyme combinations, four of them previously used in other European Quercus, obtaining a large number of haplotypes (81) grouped in three main types (suber type, ilex-coccifera I type and ilex-coccifera II type). Such level of haplotype diversity is higher than previously reported for the genus… CONTINUE READING
